CH Tallis Rousing Rocket Flare is my first homebred Shih-Tzu champion, finishing at just 10 months of age and
qualifying as the #18 Shih Tzu for the Eukanauba Invitational at just 12 months of age. It was a thrill to be there
with him and his co-owner, Carol Valentine. Carol also owns his sire, CH Valentine's Rocket Scientist. She
was very involved with him and was right there ringside with me, rooting for him all the way as Karen Crane
expertly showed him.
Norris was never beaten from his puppy class and started just after turning 6 months old. He had completed 6 points of
his championship from the 6-9 month puppy class.
