Tutti has an independent determined personality like her father, combined with her mother’s sweet tractable nature. She is also a mighty hunter, and self-confident. She chose Swan for her role model, and tried to dominate other dogs, but lacked the determination that Swan had. She mastered stepping up and down off the 1.5m high loft bed, opening sliding doors, and is passionately attached to Robyn.
Tutti had numerous successes as Best Opposite Sex Specialty twice and Runner Up Best of Breed at Sydney Royal twice.
Critiques of Tutti include:
Mr Connolly said of Avant Tout (aged 4 months at the time):
“Lovely baby of beautiful type. Excellent head with correct flew and beautiful dark eye. Lovely substance for frame and excelling in front, forechest, neck, topline, croup and tailset. This girl exhibited a nice easy profile gait and was very sound out and back. Definitely one for the future!” (Judge D Connolly (Ire), HVC NSW Specialty October 2021)
“16 months old. Feminine head, good eye colour. Full scissor bite. Ears well set and carried. Good angulated [sic] in front and behind, good bone and feet. Forechest OK. Tail well set. Good coat and colour. Moves very well from behind and also in front. Excellent movement from the side. Excellent type.” (Judge Mr P Achtergael of Belgium, HVC NSW Specialty October 2013)
Critique of Avant Tout at the March 2016 Specialty (where she placed second in the Australian Bred class) included “nicely balanced. She was easy on the move and very well conditioned. Nice depth of chest, ribbing, short in loin & arched forechest”.
