We sent Tara's mother "Java", Am/Aus CH Darkwings Inverness Java, to Anne Atkinson
in Australia in 2002. Java is a litter sister to our girl Smudge, Can CH Darkwings
Twist of Fate. Java quickly gained her Australian show championship and was bred
to Aus CH Korskote Lookin Xplosiv.

Tara is a fabulous hunting dog, and loves water; constantly getting into buckets
and water troughs. She is always included in the Fall hunting trip with Jack Myles.
Tara has OFA'd Excellent and passed her Thyroid test.
