Our Handsome Guys

    He did it again!  Wink just took his second AKC Reserve Best In Show in Springfield, IL


        Introducing some of the awesome Aussies that make up our canine family, both here at home and our extended family.   So I can keep a smaller number of dogs, I may have dogs in my breeding program who don't live here or are owned by me.  They can live with their families in a home setting but may be available for a litter in our program.  We still hold them to the same high standards and health testing is done.  We keep in close contact so we can assess the dogs, not to mention enjoy visit with their owners who are friends of ours. 

    Here are our handsome Aussie boys.  They bring some of the wonderful qualities I hope to include in my breeding program, not to mention they are a joy to live or visit with.  Besides wanting sound structure, balance and type, and good health, we like versatile, biddable sound-minded Aussies with a good on/off button, so our dogs are chosen with these traits in mind.

    EXCITING NEWS FROM THE 2014 USASA NATIONAL SPECIALTY SHOW!!   Wink took second place in Sweepstakes 12-15 month puppy out of a class of 18.   Joyce said the judge said she had a hard time deciding between first and second, he was that close to first.  Not bad for a young boy!   Two half siblings won their classes.

 Even when he's being silly and playing, with exaggerated sidegait, he still has good foot timing, balance and a solid topline.
