These are the dogs that I started with. I learned a lot from them and they were key in showing me how amazing the Aussie really is.
This guy was my 2nd aussie. I acquired him when I was in college. He was an all-around dog. He was my hauling partner and my working partner. He would work off of voice commands or hand signals. He was those "one person" type of dogs. Cowboy was Pincie Creek bred. I lost him to an accident when he was only 5 yrs old. He was a large boy, weighing around 70 lbs and had tons of bone. He was my constant shadow

This gal was my start at raising aussies. Out of a WTCH champion and a granddaught of International Champion Fairoks Aladar, she raised some amazing puppies. She had pups go to the show ring and to working homes. Her puppies were very versatile. I always hoped I would be able to retain a female for future breeding but that was not in the cards. She has a really nice blue merle female that is with Paula Thedford at Irongate Australian Shepherds in Paula's breeding program.

Breaker had an excellent temperament. He was the typical Aussie, reserved at first then loved attention once he got to know people. He was great with our other dogs and loved our boys. He went back to WTCH (working trail champions) and to the amazing Fairoaks line. Breaker had an excellent top line and ear set. He passed on his wonderful attitude and disposition to his puppies.
