I am very happy to welcome Lizzy to Tealwood!  She has a wonderful pedigree of proven bloodlines, doubled up on Dickendall Ruffy, and goes back to  Strutts, Dillon and one of my all-time favorites Monarch's Black Arrogance.  Lizzy has LOADS of attitude and a delightful personality, nice bone, strong topline, very nice angles, tailset, pigment and substance. Lizzy's very well-balanced and moves like a dream!  She's champion pointed from puppy class and recently picked up a 4-point major (BOW/BOS) at the TCLRC supported entry on 1/4/09.  Thank you, Barb, for sending Lizzy to Tealwood!

See Lizzy's puppy (by Armani) below winning RWB & Best Puppy at the 2008 Golden Gate specialty, only 6 1/2 months old!  Go Auggie!  And another daughter, Pauley, having fun doing Rally.  Also, see Lizzy's son, Ted, under The Boys.

Barb and Pauley are having lots of fun, congrats to both!!!


I am greatly saddened to say that Barb Hengelfelt has passed away from a major heart

attack.  She was a wonderful, huge-hearted lady and will be greatly missed by many.

Pauley now lives with Barb's sister and lives a good life in spite of losing her "mama".
