Taycin's Chupanako

Curtis Taylor and Chuppy

In May 1971, Curtis Taylor was stationed at Vandenburg Air Force Base in Lompoc, California. He found a bloody, dirty puppy by the side of the road. He picked it up and tried to find out who lost the little guy. No one claimed him, so Curt took him to a vet and was told that the dog was an Australian Shepherd. The pup was about 11 months old.

As Curt was being discharged on June 4th, he chose that date for the dogs birthday, and named him Chupanako, greek for 'Little Shepherd."

About two years later, Curt met and married Cindy Perron. Their next door neighbors raised and showed German Shepherds. Their neighbor thought that Chuppy was a purebred and further suggested that he be shown. Chuppy was taken to a fun match and took Best of Breed! Needless to say, that victory was pretty exciting! After a couple of Best of Breed wins, other breeders became interested and we then verified that he was indeed a purebred. Chuppy was registered with the Australian Shepherd Club Of America, (ASCA) with an unknown pedigree. Taycin Kennels was born, "Tay" for Taylor, "Cin" for Cindy.

Cindy gave her Aunt Hugette a Chuppy puppy, "Taycin's Country Bumpkin", aka Tuff Stuff, which proved to be too much for her. Jeanine Perron took him to a show to see if anyone might want him. Instead, she entered him in the show and took Best Of Breed. Guess who was hooked! Ch. Taycin's Country Bumpkin, aka Tuff Stuff, was by Jeanine's side for 15 years. He was the best, producing many great puppies.

Jeanine Perron   From the memoirs of Jeanine Perron about the first acquaintance with miniature australian shepherds and of their appearance in the Taycin kennel:

"How did the North American Miniature Australian Shepherds get into the picture? At an ASCA show, Doris Cordova came with a very small Aussie, telling people that it was a miniature. The quality was not too good. I told her that I felt she could improve the breed, I thought a place for such a small dog might exist in the dog world. For the most part, standard Aussie breeders didn’t like the idea of a miniature replica.

She bred her bitch to a small standard I had (Taycin's Mr. Blue Eyes). The puppies were much improved. Doris didn’t have the opportunity to pursue this breeding program. She passed away, and her progress was lost.

I was selected as Executive Board member of the newly formed North American Miniature Australian Shepherd Club of the USA as Vice President и actively encouraging and promoting the sound, responsible breeding practice. A few years later, along came Kathy Croswhite-Munson with a couple of small dogs-Mini! Again we used another small standard male of ours, Oaktrail’s Flaming Arrow. In that litter was future Ch Destiny’s Radiant Ruby. She became my foundation bitch".
