Roxy is a dog we were very excited to have the chance to purchase.

Her mother was Alta-Pete Tala. Tala was the USBCHA National Reserve Champion in 2004 the same year her brother Pleat was the National Champion.

Tala, Pleat and Maid and Hemp's mother, Meg, were out of a cross of Scott's Dan and Kelly that produced winning pups. Tala was also a two time Reserve Champion of Canada.
Although Scott had bred, trained, and trialed her, Tala was not owned by him and was sold to Montana after the nationals. She was never bred until late in life and produced only one puppy, Roxy. Roxy's father was Joy Crawford's Davey who had been imported from Scotland for her by Johnny Wilson. Roxy was sold to Thad Buckler from Northern Alberta and he got her started in her training.

Last year, Scott purchased Roxy and continued her training and it is hoped that she will follow in her mother's footsteps. She has some of Tala's nicest traits, including her pace.
Scott will be trialing Roxy in Open Ranch/Adv. Pro Novice this year and her first trial will be at the Plumb Lucky trial in April.
