Our Ads in the Sheltie Strut




We did do some showing in 2016 with wonderful results.

"Jamie" Nitelatches The Blacklist earned his championship going BOB from the classes and onto a group 4th.
The very next show "Jamie" won the Group. Co-owner Bonnie Taylor (Bonnyville Shelties) and I where thrilled.

"Marcus" Bonnyville's Leading Man garnered 9 points toward his championship and he will be out in 2017 to try for that last point.

I am now on the bottom half of the Sporting Group and hope to finish in 2017.

I wish all my family and friends a happy, healthy 2017!

See you at the shows.
