Mikatura's Tuff E Nuff DNA-VP


September 2, 2004 - September 4, 2016

A flutter races through my heart
like wings of butterflies
it pulls ever so lightly
stinging tears come to my eyes.

An old familiar feeling
like a memory tucked so deep
it stays forever with me
it is mine alone to keep.

Your precious paws from heaven
did encompass me forever
and with woven strings of angel dust
tied our hearts together.

The final breath was taken
the last heartbeat echoed faint
a loving tug on heart strings
was felt through storms of pain.

This tug was but a message
that was heard yet left unspoken
assurance through the hurtful loss
the bond would not be broken.

As wings of angels whisper
and the chimes begin to sing
a bond is strongly deepened
with the tug of our heart strings.

"I'm tired, I'm sittin' down & No More Pictures!"

This boy was (and still is) the spitfire of the group, he never quits once he's made up his mind to do something  (hence the name, after World Champion Bull Rider Tuff Hedeman)...if there's mischief, he's there, if there isn't he'll make some! Every time you look he's heeling one of the other pups or herding them into a corner!  And he loves nothing better than being taken out to 'play' with the ducks!

Christmas 2006 ~ out playing in the field with Dani...

the theme of the day seemed to be follow-the-leader
then Tuffy decided he needed a game of zoom, zoom, ZOOM!!!!
before settling down to a game of let's try and jump on Jeni! :-)

Tuffy & Mickey having a game...

Wanna play Tuffy?

You betcha!

'Play ball?' says Tuff...

'NOOOO, CATCH ME!' says Mickey!
Uh-oh, a nose bop! OOPS...

' Nose Bop! Now I'm gonna sneeze! '

We're very proud to announce that Tuffy took 4th place in his class in the Feather River Australian Shepherd Club pre-show at the ASCA Nationals in Paso Robles California!  Many thanks to Judge Joe Parreira for for seeing beyond the puppy hi-jinks to the true potential of our red devil in his very first show!
