CoCo would be a perfect model for the cover of Dogue, Barker's Bazaar, or any of the other top dog fashion magazines.  She made her debut in the show ring at the Baytown Kennel Club show on Saturday, May 1, 2010, and won Best Puppy under Judge Judy Webb.  We were not able to stay for puppy group that day, but CoCo made up for it by winning the Puppy Terrier Group both days in Lake Charles, Louisiana, winning her first point from the 6-9 month puppy class at the Calcasieu Kennel Club show on Saturday (June 12, 2010) under Judge Denny Mounce, and earning a reserve win on Sunday (June 13, 2010) under Judge Pat Huber.  CoCo earned her next point from the Bred-by class at the Cypress Creek Kennel Club show on Sunday, November 14, 2010, under Judge James J. Ham.  She then celebrated back-to-back wins from the Bred-by class at the Brazoria Kennel Club shows in Houston, Texas on November 20 and 21, 2010, going Winners Bitch on Saturday under Judge Annemarie Moore and Winners Bitch/Best Opposite on Sunday under Judge Charles E. Trotter.  In her next shows, February 19 and 20, 2011, at the Guadalupe Valley Kennel Club shows in San Marcos, Texas, CoCo was Winners Bitch/Best of Breed both days from the Bred-by Exhibitor class under Judges David A. Alexander and Sharol Candace Way.  With handler Klayton Harris taking the lead, CoCo captured Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and Best of Breed at the Denton Kennel Club show under Judge Peggy L. Lloyd on May 15, 2011, then acquired the remainder of her championship points in Lake Charles, Louisiana, with three back-to-back-to-back major wins at the Calcasieu and Acadiana Kennel Club shows held June 9-12, 2011: CoCo was Winner Bitch on Thursday under Judge Robert J. Shreve, on Friday under Judge Sandra Goose Allen, and again on Saturday under Judge Gary L. Doerge; she was moved up for Sunday's show under Judge James G. Reynolds, where she won Best Opposite Sex and a major toward her Grand Champion title.

CoCo's next stop was at the Reliant Park World Series of Dog Shows (July 21-24, 2011), facing her toughest competition to date as a new champion.  Handled by Klayton Harris, and always a crowd favorite, CoCo made it to the winning line-up as Select Bitch under Judge Desmond Murphy on Friday, July 22, 2011, at the Houston Kennel Club show with a 4-point grand champion major (defeating 23 bitches, including four other bitch specials), and as Best Opposite Sex under Judge Dr. Robert W. T. Myall on Sunday, July 24, 2011, at the Galveston County Kennel Club show for a 3-point grand champion major, leaving CoCo just a couple of points shy of her Grand Champion title.  CoCo's cool cover girl looks paid off in Kenner, Louisiana, at the Metairie and Louisiana Kennel Club shows August 4-7, 2011.  Beautifully presented by Klayton Harris, CoCo won the final points for her Grand Champion title going Best of Breed for a major on Thursday under Judge Lorraine Bisso.  CoCo was Best of Breed again on Friday for another major under Judge Joe C. Walton.  CoCo picked up two more majors on Saturday and Sunday with Best Opposite Sex and Select Bitch wins under Judges Loraine Boutwell and David Alexander, respectively.  At 22 months of age, new GCH CH TullyBloom’s Cool Cover Girl “CoCo” retired from the show ring to pursue her modeling career.  Some of her favorite poses are in the yard, on the couch, and on the bed. In May 2018, CoCo and daughter Ready moved to Knoxville, Tennessee, where they enjoy a lovely home, huge yard, lots of hikes, and adore being adored.
