About Traxx Siberian Huskies
Hi! I am Tami Jones and I own Traxx Siberians.
to share how Traxx Siberians came to be.
The story begins way back in Tami's childhood. Tami was the ultimate
"softy" when it came to animals. Every stray dog in the neighborhood
seemed to "follow her home". At the age of 5, Tami's mother
asked her what kind of puppy she wanted. Her mother presented her with
Kennel Club's (AKC's) Breed Book. Since Tami could only look at the
pictures in the book, she pointed to the Samoyed. Well, needless to say,
Tami's mother was more than a little concerned about "all that hair",
and asked her to select something else. Back then, Tami's favorite comic
strip was Peanuts and she LOVED Snoopy, so next she asked for a "Snoopy
dog" (a Beagle). I guess her mother was not keen on having a hound,
either. One day her mother came home with a new puppy - a lovely, little,
female Maltese. Not exactly what Tami was hoping for, but nevertheless,
she was thrilled with her new puppy. "Blanca," the Maltese,
lived to be 15. During Tami's childhood, her love for all animals was
reinforced by her mother's involvement with the World
Wildlife Fund, the Audubon
Society, and the wildlife in her own back yard in rural Wisconsin.
Additionally, Tami's mother was quite a good equestrian, and Tami learned
to ride at an early age. Tami rode and worked at Mary
Lynn Stables (no longer in business) in Grafton, Wisconsin where their American Saddlebred
horses were boarded. By the time Tami was 13 she was showing her horses
in fine harness, under halter, and English saddle.
It Must be Genetic!
Tami always knew she was adopted and found her birth mother when she
was 28. It was no surprise to anyone that her birth mother owned a Riding
Academy (3 day Eventing) in Austin, TX (Golden
Vista Equestrian Center). Obviously, showing horses was in her
genes. However, horse showing is a very expensive hobby, and as a
young adult Tami could not afford such luxuries. Tami moved her family
to St. Petersburg, Florida in 1987, when her children were very little.
The economy in Wisconsin at that time was poor, and Florida proved
to be the right opportunity at the right time. It helped that Tami's
mother had moved to that area of Florida in 1985. More...
