MEET MEEGAN PIEROTTI-TIETJE
Meegan is a genuine dog person. She grew up in a dog show family and has always been involved in the sport of purebred dogs. “I began my love of dogs and the breed ring at a very early age,” notes the Fayetteville, North Carolina resident. “My mother bred, raised, and showed Golden Retrievers for many years, and I was often ‘baby sat’ by her favorite Golden, Lady.” Meegan began showing in Junior Showmanship when she was 12 years old and has never really stopped. She became interested in the grace and movement found within the Hound Group, and gravitated toward smaller dogs; Whippets and, eventually, Italian Greyhounds.
“I remember meeting Judy Parker of Bramblewood Kennels at Sampson State Park,” Meegan recalls. “It was that day that I met ‘Kepheran.’ He was my very first Ibizan and the very best dog.” Meegan’s constant companion and friend was a great ambassador for his breed and the neighborhood clown. “When the time came to say goodbye to my old friend, I knew I would live with another Ibizan,” she says. “Life without ‘that face’ was too much to bear. I began searching and eventually purchased two wire-haired Ibizan littermates, Apollo and Pan.” Meegan’s kennel, Heron and Hound, is home to dogs that excel in the ring, on the field, and in various performance and companion event
Meegan’s dedication to the sport is due to her lifelong involvement in and outside the ring. “I’ve never known life without dog shows, and the people in them are the reason I feel so passionate about the sport,” she notes. Meegan understands that success in the sport can mean many different things to different exhibitors. As she emphasizes, “I am here to help my dog show peers achieve their goals—no matter how big or small, we truly are a family!”
Meegan is always happy to speak with you about your goals.
