WELCOME TO TESA
After studying art, advertising and photography in college, I got my first real job associated in my field. In 1982 I began working for the well-known dog show photographer, John Ashbey. At first it was just in printing and artwork but later I was sent to dog shows to assist in win photography. I became fascinated with every aspect of the dog show world. I worked for John until I met my husband, Joe, and together we had three beautiful boys. As my children got older I decided that I needed to be part of dog shows again but in a different way. I wanted to try my hand at showing a dog myself. After years of being on the other side of the camera it was a whole different world, but it didn't take long for me to want to get involved with this wonderful breed that I had always loved. So after a lot of learning and watching other breeders I acquired my first Aussie, CH MontRose Chasing Winter Blues, from Kelsey Jones of MontRose. She was fun to show and loved every minute of it. However," Misty" isn't my foundation bitch. While she was busy showing and acquiring her AKC Championship, I acquired Bayshore Bubblicious "Bubble" from Frank Baylis of Bayshore. "Bubble" was the start of Tesa and gave me some amazing puppies. I continue to strive to produce sound mind and body in a dog with a temperament you can live with. They have beauty and brains with the ability to work in any venue.
