Here is a pretty poor video of Chase and his sheep (with Ellen Gerwin). The battery in the camera was not holding its charge — which I discovered when the camera suddenly shut off. We now have a new battery and video quality should be up in the future. Chase loves his sheep.
In addition to herding and agility and Nola’s obedience, we will be welcoming a house guest this week. Lovely Champion Raglans Just Keep Swimming (“Dory”) will be spending the winter with us. The plan is that she will be bred to Chase. Puppies will probably be born in February. Watch for photos of Dory on the blog as she and the other dogs get acquainted. Dory is a pretty tri girl that turned two this past summer. She is Hips OFA Fair, Elbows normal, CERF normal, PRA clear, fluff free. She is a DM carrier which we will work around –Chase is DM normal. Dory does not carry pink. She is owned by Anne Kowalczyk. Anne and I will “co-breed” this litter. Here is the pedigree for this brood.
In the late spring, Naughty Nola will be bred* — about the time the Dory babies have gone to their homes. As always, if you are interested in owning one of these puppies from health-tested parents, please complete the puppy application at the top of the blog. All puppies are temperament-tested and will be instinct-tested on ducks. We anticipate lovely, sound herding fools from both these litters.
*We will reveal the father soon.
