Our trust being in GOD (the Yahwey of Judah: the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) our faith is well founded.  One familiar description of God is that He is Love.  From His Holy Word, from the beginning and from the living word of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) first Corinthians 13:4-8 says it so well,

  “Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude.  Love does not demand its own way.  It is not irritable or touchy.  It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices  whenever truth wins out. If you love someone you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost.  You will always believe in him, always expect the best of him, and always stand your ground in defending him.

  All the special gifts and powers from God will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever.”

We love all of God’s creations but more especially the animals.  For many years we have been entrusted with the stewardship of a few of his breeds for which we have invested a lifetime of work and dedication.  We wish to share the philosophy that has guided us from the inception and that is, “ we only loose the things we keep and we only keep the things we loose”.  Norman sites an example of this philosophy which actually happened to him,

  "I raised a baby pet pigeon and when I turned him loose was the most enjoyable time I had with him.  The bird would come to me and land on my shoulder, but when he was caged he had little or no personality and did not relate to me except to be fed. I turned him loose before he died from lack of interest.  His genetics caused him to want to be free and to fly.  I felt he really appreciated the fact that I allowed him first to live and secondly to be what he wanted to be.  I receive great joy when I am able to let my dogs first be free and secondly express who they really are." 

This philosophy has been the rock upon which we built our breeding programs and tough as it has been to abide by that philosophy we somehow always come back to the truth of that text.

From 1957, to as long as God permits, our Tabu kennel name and XP brand will be our method of identifying the results of our breeding program.  Through very strict and objective selection we have been blessed with many wonderful animals.  In a small way we feel the joy of knowing how God felt with His creation of all things when He declared “it is good”.

With this as our foundation we share the following results of the fruits of our labors.  We know without a doubt that our faith in Jesus Christ will allow us to be with these wonderful animals again, and this time for eternity praising Jesus Christ the Lamb of Judah as Revelation 5:13 promises.
