We had 5 girls and 3 boys. The pups are all off to their new homes.

Song placed her first time out in Open, a few months after her second birthday. She is biddable, easy to train, and keeps her head in new situations. She's a forward dog who just loves to push sheep along. Song is stable, happy in new environments, friendly with kids and adults. She is from our Rhyme/Ken litter. Hips OFA Excellent, Elbows OFA Normal, CEA DNA Normal by parentage

Nip is registered as Imp. Sweep but most folks who see him at trials know him as Nip. He was 2nd the Irish Munster Nursery Finals and another regional nursery finals before he was imported. Nip has a tremendous way of taking a hold of his sheep and managing them quietly. Sheep move off him easily and calmly. He is wide and deep on his outrun. Nip's first pups are in training now and looking very good. He is a social and stable dog who throws social and stable pups. Hips OFA Good, CEA DNA Normal (Optigen Accession #: 09-7838)
