   Correct pedigree of Black Tige.

Black Tige (Blue Mike x Lady Lee)

Tudor's Black Jack (Black Tige x Blackwell Mollie W)

 

There are many talks that sire of famous Tudor's Black Jack, Black Tige is from Henry bloodline. I found out that these talks have their roots in 1920's. That time most of black colored dogs were from Henry's Black Brandy stock. One more mix up we can see with similar names, such as "Black Demon". There were 2 dogs named Black Demon. One of them was from Frank Henry breeding, sired by Henry's Black Brandy, whelped on June 9 1910. Another one, is older than Henry's dog, originally from Texas, sired by Green's Black Paddy out of Lady Madge.

In fact , main help with this question came with original pedigree record of Blue Mike, sire of Black Tige. Blue Mike was owned G.C. Flint,  Roland TX. Breeder is Ben Baer, San Angelo TX. Whelped February 13, 1908. Color: solid blue brindle. By Wichita Mike out of Miss Blue...Wichita Mike by Black Demon out of Blue Madge...Black Demon by Black Paddy out of Lady Madge.

We see that it's absolutely impossible for Henry's bred dog Black Demon, whelped in 1910, be found in Blue Mike pedigree, whelped in 1908! So, with all these records and corrections we have this pedigree of Black Tige.

Sire "tail" in this pedigree goes back to Warrior, sometimes named Soldier. Green's Black Paddy was sired by Green's Black Roger, also known as Imported Roger.

I hope this info will help to study Tudor's Henry dogs roots with more correct info and pedigrees.
