  1. Usher is chipped with Avid, also has my cell phone # for a tattoo on his thigh.
  2. Release forms are common at every trial. With practice, it's common courtesy that you would replace anything. I was at an AHBA trial at a friends, Usher ran last and everyone but a few were setting up for lunch. I didn't close the gate tight enough when I entered and a lamb got through. Usher slammed the lamb against the fence. I was so upset! I sent e-mails to the owners of the sheep and the judge and my trainer. The lamb was fine. I was sickened at the way he lost control over the poor little critter and would have paid any price. I guess that is just the difference with people that use sheep as "toys" for their dogs and others that respect them as living creatures.
  3. Usher doesn't like to roll in anything stinky like most dogs. He prefers to roll on an unused "Bounce" dryer sheet. He likes to smell pretty.

  5. I happen to like a dog with some fur to pet. Nothing to do how the dog works, but s/he is going to be in my home and I like a little fur. I would love my dog if he was purple. BUT....... I like the furry stuff. Personal prefaces, I consider. I love to brush my dog- he likes it also. Never had a slick coat, less hair, less vacuuming..........hmmmmmmmmmm. Not as purdy. LOL.
  6. Got the same problem with Bliss, every time she visits my Mom, she must put on 5 pounds. I'm trying to have Mom keep her now & again. She enjoys Bliss' company. I learned how to ride a bike again- yippppie. That helps. She only eats 1/2 cup 2X a day, don't know what more I can do. Good luck with it. If you find a magic cure- let us know.
  7. Beautiful photos as usual and a great story. I wish I would have gone!
  8. haven't decided yet. Lots of ifs and or but's....... 12 in a litter is spooky. ETA- I'm glad someone is reading my blog. Oh- nd P.S. I sent an e-mail to Dianne, Pat & Don to ask about the pups. Just to be sure that I'm doing the right thing. If not- I will decline.
  9. That's a lot!! Most I've seen are 5-6. Your opinions?
  10. As far as I know, this is the story I've always heard. Usher is a "raker" bits of pieces of grass go flying all over.
  11. I had to move in order to keep this in control. It's "funny" to your friends, but not a trait you want to bring out- now we are working on shadows. Not easy when friends think it's "cute".
  12. Someone I DO respect recommend them I didn't mean to heat things up. Sorry!
  13. I haven't had a chance to see the parents yet. I'm planning on a trip to the Oregon Coast for "Girls week" yep, I get to see Bailey again. I'll be going with my old neighbor, the Aussie lady & crew chief's wife, also. We are going to stop by our old places and visit Kathy Brunetto & Mike Ryan (the owners of Bill's dogs) so I will have a chance to see them work and get some new advice and catch-up time. Kathy retired & only trials once a year. She still trains, so if anyone in that area needs help- she's the best. I will also visit & or pick up the pup- Brian Abingdon is great. If I am not fond of the litter, here's your check back. Actually Bonnie Henny owns one of Bill's dogs too. I know a lot of people in OR. I'm not to popular around here- LOL. Titles don't mean much to me, either. I don't have sheep, I just happen to enjoy the sport and the company of other crazy people that like doing the same thing I do. I'm checking on placing Bliss in a retirement home as resident dog. She loves the elderly and would be so happy there. I have only kept her this long because my Mom loves her, but refuses to take her, except to baby-sit.
  14. I didn't like getting Usher in late October. I think it would be nice to take the new pup out to clinic's and such, once shots are complete. I'm not real fond of a smoothie, but crossing it with a rough, which is the case in both the breeding's I'm sure I'd get a medium. I just like some fur to pet. Black or red doesn't matter. BTW- both breeding's would be black & red breeding's. I already have a name picked out for a red female. Blush.
  15. Yea, the ? is "Is it all in a name?" Or who you get your dog from? There are so many related dogs out here in ID. I'd like something a little different. Just not to be compared to a littermate....etc.... WTG Tikkle!!
  16. First of all, I have 2 friends in OR. that have Bill Berhow dogs they are going to breed in the fall. My friend has a male he brought from Bill and my other friend has a female not related. She won't be in season until fall. That makes the pups ready at a bad time here in ID. Next, my trainer recommended his friend Brian Abingdon. The pups are due any moment. The stud dog Tip- STUD DOGS ~ TIP Tip, an ABCA Red rough coated Border Collie, is a working cattle ranch dog. During the summer of 2008 Tip achieved his WTCH (Working Trial Champion) in only 2 Trials - a feat that typically takes years to accomplish. Tip's littermate Thong is an ASCA Working Trial Champion also and two time USBCHA National Finals Qualifier. Thong was also the youngest dog to qualify at thirteen months. Tip has Rojo, 1990 Reserve North American Trial Champion in his pedigree. The Dam- Cookie FEMALE DOGS ~ COOKIE This slick coated black and white Registered American Border Collie, is sired by Lex and out of Lonerider Nan. Cookie was recently re-purchased and when crossed with Tip, a litter mate to USBCHA two time qualifier Thong, produced quick powerful pups. This cross has become our favorite, as it has provided pups that are nice to be around and easy to train. They are wide on sheep and can work rank cattle. We currently have two females from Cookie and Tip which you can view on this site, full litter mates Reika and Molly. Due to the sucess that we have had from previous litters we have bred Cookie once again to Tip, and she is due to whelp the first part of May 2009. Please see our Upcoming Litters page under For Sale for more information. OK- For me, summer is a better time to get a puppy. I'm out more, I can socialize, etc.... Is it all in a name?
  17. Thanks for the info. Can't trust anyone anymore. We all want our dogs on the best diet.
  18. Thanks Diane- I no longer feed this brand, but it's a "head's up" to people that do good job!!!!
  19. TY for the info- is it the canned or dry? I've seen problems with the canned, but not the dry- we switched anyway, BUT were thinking of going back----due to "cheapness"
  20. What happened to the bull riding? I told ya to tell them, we could get Ross Coleman to help ya!!
  21. I fed Nutro dry for years. Changed to Dog Lovers Gold. My dogs are fat. Nutro used to be a pretty good product- what happened?
  22. Very much so with Usher- none with the rest of my older, long gone dogs. I got Usher in November. Cold. I was working through a depression. I did not work much with him- it shows to this day. Although he could pass an obedience test in a loud room, he is easily distracted in clinics. I'm afraid to be too rough with him around groups of people - maybe appearing as the "mean, abusive, dog lady- He deserved a better start. I'm sorry Ush.
  23. Why do I always have a worried look on my face? It was a great clinic!!!
  24. I just came back. Learned a LOT. I have some pics on Usher's blog. I'm sure Jodi will post tons. It was great!
