On March 26, 2011 Teresa Magness of Magnum Yorkies and Shirley Bovay of Fantasy Yorkies attended a dog show put on by the MakingTracks for APRI South Chapter in St. Roberts Missouri. Also attending their first show was Clara Detmers and Pricilla Balance of It’s Parti Time Yorkies.Teresa brought her daughter Nikki to help out and Pricilla brought her daughter,Angela to help out and to show their dog Mickey who was bred by Shirley at Fantasy Yorkies.

APRI will allow theParti colored Yorkie to compete in their dog shows and both Teresa and Shirley have shown in their shows previously. We found the folks at APRI to be both welcoming and accepting of our unique colored Yorkies so we have decided tosupport them when possible and to show our Yorkies in this venue. Last October Teresa had her Parti Yorkie Dancer – Magnum’s Parti Dancer completed her championship and Shirley finished her Parti Yorkie Aladdin – Panda Bear Parti Aladdin. Teresa and Shirley also had the first leg completed toward his championship on their co-owned Parti Yorkie male, Whiskey – Fantasy’s Life of the Parti At Magnum

In order to get an APRI Championship you have to score 185 or better for three legs. Each leg has 2 individual judges examining the dog and watching it gait. They then independently score the dog and their scores are added together. Each dog is compared to and evaluated against the written standard; they do not compete against each other.If you score over 185 points you have successfully completed that leg and will get a written evaluation from the judges. After completing three legs you are an APRI Champion. Only one leg can be obtained in dogs 6-12 months old, the other required two legs must be obtained after the dog is over one year old. Further championships like Prominent Champion (similar to Grand Champion) and ChampionPar Excellence can be obtained by competing further after getting your firstchampionship, each of these also takes 3 legs. The Champion Par Excellence legis only awarded with a perfect score of 200. The winner of each group - (Toy,Herding, Non-sporting, Sporting, Terrier, Working, & Hound) competes for the Top Dog award of the day which is comparable to Best In Show. In most APRI Dog Shows there are 2 shows in one day so you get more opportunities to show.

Teresa and Shirley finished their co-owned male Whiskey on March 26th with scores of 198 & 198. Teresa also showed her 5 month old puppy Cabaret – Magnum’s Show Girl in the junior puppy classes for a written evaluation but no points.Teresa’s Cabaret won the Best Junior Puppy in Show award which was really appreciated. Clara and Pricilla obtained 2 legs toward Mickey’s championship and had a great time watching Angela show him. They plan to finish his championship at a future show that is closer to their home in Illinois. Shirley showed Aladdin and obtained 2 legs toward his Prominent Champion with scores of 199 & 200 and she even got one leg toward his Champion Par Excellence award with that perfects core of 200!! Shirley and Aladdin also won the toy group for both shows of the day and got to compete in the Top Dog lineup twice. Shirley and Aladdin won theTop Dog award in the second show and were thrilled to be given a trophy and this award.

For more information about APRI and their dog shows please check out their website at www.aprpets.org or email Teresa at [email protected] We would love to have more Parti Yorkies showing and APRI has allowed us to do this. We had a great time competing and socializing with each other and would love to have other Parti Yorkie breeders competing as well.

Today we have reached 50 members, this is such great news. It is really a wonderful thing to have so many parti owners and breeders joining the club, I hope we continue to grow and show everyone that the Parti Yorkie is here to stay.

Our search started 2006.
We hadyorkies and were very much in love with them. My husband startingtalking about how much fun it would be to one day have puppies..thatwould not always be the same color..not just Black/blue and tan. Ihad heard of Biewers but knew they were not accepted by Canadian Kennel Club. After researching on line I started to hear about Parti coloredyorkies ..really caught my eye. I contacted quite a few breeders, butnever really felt like "I" was the right match..never really seemed toget the answers I needed. I then contacted Loryn(Crownridge)..wetalked for a long time and often... She knew everything about heryorkies..I had to get a pen and paper to keep track so I would not getconfused. I then sat down with a few vets to find out if there wasany truth to the rumors that I had heard they were sickly..bad tobreed.. etc. All the vets told me the same thing...colour was no reasonto think they were unhealthy,..of course they would go for the samecheckups ect as my traditional yorkies before we ever decided to bredthem. My goal since I started breeding was get the best....breed thebest..bred for families and socialized for families..I never wantedsomeone to have to lose a fur friend because of something I could haveprevented. The more I talked with her, the more I questioned Why Icould not get them accepted into CKC. Being a CKC member and Breeder Ican not bred anything that is not "purebred". They are yorkies..no namechange, just not a current show colour...So I would have to get themregistered with Canadian Kennel Club. My CKC mission started in 2007with lots of call and e mails..lots and lots of no`S... But the onlygood reason they could give me was that National Yorkshire terrierclub had no code for Parti or tri colored yorkies. Why I thoughtwould the Yorkshire terrier club have the last word over what theCanadian Kennel club should be doing..they register all purebred dogsnot just yorkies. If I prove they are purebred anda recognized bred ....it is there job to correctly register them . Itis not a new bred just a different colour. I was not about to giveup...I would keep going until I found someone that could say yes..
In May of 2008 I finally started to get some answers I wanted to hear...They startedto say they would register them..but if the color was not listed forthe Yorkshire terrier, then I would just have to pick a closest to thecolor listed... Hmm ..still a big problem as far as I wasconcerned..black/tan or blue/ tan with some white.... . I was not goingto become a member of a group that expected me to lye..which is what Ifelt I would be doing if I just pick a color. Being that a parti isat least 30 % white I feel I would be misleading or looked uponas a breeder that was lying.. That would squish all the work I haddone to prove myself as a good breeder. I kept fighting for a betteranswer Just because I starting the ball rolling I was receiving callsand email's from show breeders telling me they needed to be destroyed,or hidden from the public and that if I choose to bred them I would beunethical and would be breeding sickly dogs giving yorkies a bad name. I was even told to destroy all my current reg yorkies ( mykids!) and they would offer me..better yorkies to show and bred on aco ownership..then I would be a "good" breeder. These people had noteven seen my dogs..or my papers and pedigrees !! I kept calling CKC..I was not going away (I think they hoped I would)
On July 14, 2008 I got the answer I had wanted to hear...
Thankyou for your call earlier this afternoon and your message below. It wasgood to speak with your possible membership and the issues below.Further to our conversation, I'd like to pass on some information thatI gleaned from my colleagues/experts here.
First,your Yorkies will actually have a greater choice of colours forregistration with CKC than what the national Yorkshire Terrier BreedClub suggests, simply because genetically there is no way to prove thatthey cannot be the colour that you and your AKC registration paperssuggest. The National Club suggests the colour palette that we use, butwe are not rigidly restricted to those colours, so there should be noproblem accepting a colour that is very close to Parti (from our colourgrid of over 800).
I got the answer I wanted to hear and then got it in writing !!
On to my next step..
All my dogs live in my home with me sleep in my bed..you get the idea,
Lorynsaid hers did too...but she had so many..I had to see it for myself..no just shipping my baby to me...I had to meet her in person.
Off we went to California, (our first time)
I was so in love with Loryn and all her babies..it was the best dream ever !!
She said she had my baby..and she did !! The best little girl ever..Home came... Crownridge Princess Ariel
Idid a DNA test, got the AKC paper,..took pictures and sent along mypackage to CKC with my email correspondence..just in case
I kept my finger crossed and waited
January 13, 2009
I received the envelope..holding my breath I opened it....YES !!! It was official She was PARTICOLOUR....best day ever :))
(Certificate was issued by Canadian Kennel Club on January 6, 2009)
Now it was time to get her a boyfriend..
We grab a plane and went back to Loryn ( second time in California)
Home came PIXIE DUST PRINCE CHARMING
We did everything all over and he was approved by CKC on May 22, 2009.
Weknew it would be a while before Ariel would be breeding, Loryn agreedto sell us 2 girls we fell in love with while we were visiting.
We we took a trip to California ( I became so addicted to Loryns I started to go down every 3 months..lol)
Bunny and Cupcake came home..both are carriers and had been bred to full parti males before bringing them home
Bunny had a litter on June 18,2009
1 parti female
2 parti males
1 B/T Carrier male
Cupcake had a litter on June 21, 2009
3 males B/T
1 parti female.
I have been told we had the
First parti babies to be born and registered in Canada..as particolour Nov 2009
We had only 1 male remain in Canada 2 girls and 1 boy went back to California
OurAriel is due to have babies sometime this week..ultrasound and x rayshave confirmed 3 babies..although one is very very small in the xray.We expect a c section and will be watching her closely.
We are super excited !!
Currently we have
Ariel and Charming our full partis
Cricket, Nala, Aurora, Aladdin, Bunny, Cupcake our Carriers
We look forward to many more parti babies.
We are looking for a few fellow breeders up to help us get the partis going strong in Canada !!
Wehave only been stopped by a few people who even know what they are..Surprisingly the people that do know what they are have been retiredbreeders that were active in the show ring...I have even beentold..they remember breeder culling yorkies that came out with too muchwhite...how wrong is that.!!
