  • If you view more photos of Bettie (button below) note that the photo where Bettie is handled by Mary K Quinnett to Best Veteran in Match, Bettie is 7½ there.
  • Bettie is also featured on the opening Taji home page in her heyday.
  • As a breeder, IMO, you dream for one bitch like this in your entire career. I couldn't be more proud of Bettie who has proven her quality of conformation and temperament consistently and continuously throughout her entire lifetime amongst the most stringent competition in North America. While representing the fourth generation of the Taji bloodline, she has proven her own health and two more generations directly in front of her through five of her get who continue to produce with promising quality.
