Alex (3.5 years old at the time) insisted that Doc's brother had to be named Marty after Marty McFly in the Back to the Future (Alex's favorite movie at the time). It did not fit the nursery rhyme litter theme but it stuck as his call name anyway. When it came time to decide on his registered name, I was stumped until a friend suggested looking for a nursery rhyme that had something to do with Tea ... and the light went on ...Little Tea Pot didn't work ..... but All Steamed Up did! And so Mr. McFly became Mar-Tea McFly.
Mar-tea is a sweet, easygoing, mellow kind of fellow that isn't bothered by much. He takes after his mother in type, style and love of belly rubs especially from strangers at the benched show.
Mar-Tea has done well in the show ring since the start taking RWD one day his first weekend out and Best Puppy and a Puppy Working Group 2 placement his second weekend showing.
