Archive for the ‘Delivery of Pups & Cowdogs’ Category

I was at a friend’s house Sunday night and decided to check my email.  Typing in “tammys cowdogs webmail” I got some search results that I was not anticipating.  There were 6 results that showed my keywords in my website link and the contact information for another person is embedded into my links.  A person who sold a cowdog business to me on January 08, 2008…a retirement that truly was not a “retirement”.  After 4 years and a matter of legal pursuit, the proof was in the pudding.  And now, the latest antic…over the last few months… is to embed contact information into my website keywords or to mix my website keywords into yours?

When you see a phone number that begins with an area code of 940…well, that is not my phone number.  And the email information for “windstream.net” is not mine.

Try instead to reach Tammy’s Cowdogs at tammy@tammyscowdogs.com or 573-782-4912 (landline) or 573-659-5971 (mobile).

So please disregard the area code information of “940” as this is an attempt to direct you away from my cowdog business via some crafty “switch-a-roo” tactics.

And to the people who think they are benefiting from these less than ethical ways, I say, “That’s fine…keep it up.”

You cannot surpass Bert.

Tammy’s Cowdogs…Hangin’ Tree Cowdogs…and the master cowdog “Bert”.

Have you ever had times in your life when you think people are simply unbelievable?  That some people just cannot be happy for others because they are so blinded by the knowledge and success of others?  As we grow and experience life, we begin to realize that some people spend a lifetime creating drama after drama after drama.  Their goal is to suppress others from being successful.  And, in the end, the one who is constantly delivering the punishment is the one who is self-destructing.  I cannot help but feel sorry for the persecutor, for they bring endless shame to themselves.

Yesterday, I received yet another phone call that highlights another personal attack against me.  I listened.  The very notion of the message was another desperate attempt to drive people away from my successful cowdog breeding program.  You really have to wonder how shallow and small-minded some people are.

I ranch.  I ranch full-time.  I get up early, come home late. I have a successful retained ownership beef cattle operation.   It’s been successful my entire life.  I’m 54 and have been involved in cattle ranching my whole life.  I embrace doing a good job.  I embrace helping people.  I have a closed cowherd.  I have a closed cowdog program.   The people trying to discredit me are wasting their time with their useless, endless jealousy.

Soon, I will be posting the full details of my acquiring a dog related business over four years ago.  Some of you have been extremely supportive to me because you know the people that have waged a devious battle against me since I acquired the business.  I never anticipated that I had been set up for failure.  So when the failures began to kick in it was anticipated that I would give up, give in and would want to give back the business and the dogs.  That anticipated and hoped for end result never came true for the ones hoping I would fail.  Thus, the endless rollercoaster of lobbing more bombshells my way.

I filed a legal suit.  I won.  The people were legally exposed.  And the last several months, the latest tactic is to use another route to achieve their statement of, “I will ruin you in the dog and cattle business if you don’t give me my dogs back”, is to attack my sexuality.  Well folks, I am married to a male.  A man that is not remotely interested in my ranching lifestyle.  I do my ranching work myself with the help of my cowdogs.  And we are successful.  We will be successful today, tomorrow and clear into the future.

So to the people who breed Hangin’ Tree cowdogs and want to continue to “pull another show-stopping rabbit out of the hat”…shame on you.  This latest salvo will not work either.  Shame.  Shame.  Shame on you.   I’d suggest you go back to the drawing board.  Here is an idea, “Grow up.”  But, I know out of experience when you are dealing with people that are “self-absorbed drama addicts” you might as well just let them be because they have no remote clue how much better their lives could be if they lived in the values of truth and honesty.

So, as you:  (1) see their local, regional and national ads, (2) see or go to their low-stress cattle handling clinics, (3) see or go to their cowdog clinics and demonstrations, or (4) see them at ranch rodeos and tradeshows…remember this, “they have spent a lifetime bashing, trashing and hurting others”.  Afterall, the main reason they wanted to get out of the dog business in late 2007 was, “All the people you deal with are stupid and I am sick and tired of dealing with all the stupid people.”

I do appreciate all the lessons I have learned since December 2007 and the activities and events surrounding the expansion of my cowdog breeding program.  And, I feel sorry for those who have spent the past few years with burning up their mental minutes with trying to destroy me.

But, as usual, I hope everyone has a good day.

Well, it is Sunday afternoon and I have been returning a few phone calls.  I have once again, “Learned a lot.”  I spoke with 3 people that had some questions about the pups or cowdog that they “recently” got from me.  And, as it turns out (again) the pups &/or cowdog did not come from me.

Over the last few years, there have been periodic phone calls very similar to this scenario.  Pups or cowdogs from me that are/were never truly from me.  Two of the people today sent me faxes of the “registration papers” and pictures of their pup or dog.  While the papers show parents that are owned by me and are signed, the signature that is to be my signature “IS NOT MINE”.  I keep a database of pictures of every pup in every litter.  This database goes back to 2006.  I know exactly what has been produced in every litter and what the pups look like.

I raise my own pups.  I have a cowdog breeding program with specific goals.  I DO NOT BREED MISSY A TO STUDLY B JUST BECAUSE SHE IS IN HEAT AND HE IS AVAILABLE.  I DO NOT HAVE OTHER PEOPLE RAISING PUPS FOR ME.  I DO NOT HAVE OTHER PEOPLE STARTING PUPS FOR ME.  I DO NOT HAVE OTHER PEOPLE TAKING YOUNG DOGS AND RUNNING THEM FOR AWHILE.  I DO NOT FARM OUT DOGS FOR OTHERS TO START AND THEN TAKE THEM BACK TO SELL.  Yes, I know that this is going on with other Hangin’ Tree cowdog folks.

I do not TRADE, LEASE, SWAP, BORROW, MILL, LOAN, BROKER dogs.  Yes, I know that is how some people operate.  But, you need to know that some people are driven by money…checks, cash, swiping of a credit card, etc.  If you  want a Hangin’ Tree ‘something’…well, they have what you need.  If you are not happy with the hundred or so that they have for sale or access to, well, wait a day or two and they will find you one.

I feel lots of things when this kind of stuff continues.  But, if you want to know if a pup or cowdog came from me, then simply call or write.  I can answer your questions.  It is easier to check things out before you pay for the pup or dog.  But, it is your deal.  These situations are unfortunate and will probably continue…simply because the word “honesty” seems to have varying definition levels. And when the goal is “money”…well, you probably get the picture.

I know that there are dogs on sites that say they are out of parents “such & such”.  And that “so & so said”.  But, if in doubt…check it out before you actually buy something.   Because what you might end up with is “something”.  I might be explaining all of this out of experience.

I hope this helps.  And, it should also help explain why I have a “closed cowdog breeding program”.  Those papers might just be a piece of paper.  There are possibly way too many “papered” dogs.  Just a thought.

A couple weeks ago, I sent a pup to a family in a remote part of Wyoming.  They had called wanting another pup and the hauler was going to be here the next morning.  There was no way they could get the pup paid for before the hauler arrived.  I told them to just mail their check, “I trust you.”  Yesterday in the mail the check arrived with a wonderful note.  At the end of the …note was penciled in Jer. 29:11.  If you look this up you will find, “For surely I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.”  This note makes my day.  This family knows of the unfortunate issues that were layed at my feet 4 1/2 years ago when I purchased a retiring person’s “cowdog business”…and all the unfortunate things that came with the purchase/deal.

The moral to this story is, “Living in the truth and trust in the Word will surely always guide one to do the right thing.”  I thank this family for the note.  They love the pup.  And I am grateful for the good people I meet because they help me to get past the unfortunate people that try to trample my life.
