"Casino"

BIS BISS Am/Cdn Ch Toven Wintertide CD ROM ROMC x Shelamo Linden Decoration

"Casino" is our resident blue merle, with crystal blue eyes. She was bred by Sandy Hawkins, USA. She is a fun loving girl, always in for a good chew on a bone.

At the OKC show Nov15-17/02 "Casino" went BOW's & BOS 2 of the days and ended the weekend on 9 pts. 

Her next outing was the show weekend of May 2/03 at the CC&SSA Nat'l Spec where she finished with BOW under respected breeder judge Tom Coen.

"Casino" is an eye catching girl!  She is very much a balanced female, moving effortlessly, while carrying herself with elegance.

"Casino's" litter of 5 sired by our "Rocky", produced our Shelamo's Main Sail & Shelamo Excuse My Dust CD, RN, CGN. Through Shelamo's Main Sail came our 2nd Best Puppy In Show winner, BPIS Ch Shelamo Changing Winds.

In 2008 "Casino" went to the CSSA National in Calgary with Kim Wendling, making it down to the final cuts. Kim had handling conflicts at the end, so "Casino" was handed to the late Kathy Dziegiel of Kylene Shelties, USA. No one could have predicted that this was to be Kathy's last ring appearance.

It was after this, that "Casino" headed off to be trained in obedience with our good friend Mary-Anne Yolkowskie. It wasn't easy taking a Special's 'Show Girl', who had spent 8 years learning to 'show' in front, and now needed to learn that she should do a 'sit in front' instead! At her 1st obedience trial at the end of October 2009, didn't the 2 of them come home with 2 legs ... a 1st and 3rd placement in tough Novice B competition. One more leg and she'll be what we call a 'balanced' dog ... beauty & brains!

On March 27, 2010 Mary-Anne & "Casino" obtained their 3rd leg in obedience, which gives her the CD title! Nice going ladies.

She continued to be a demo dog at many of my dog obedience classes, and even this past spring 2012 session, was handled for the fun of it by a father's daughter of about 10 yrs of age, that came to all the classes to learn with her dad. I'd have to say she was the best learner and handler in the class!

It was with a heavy heart we said a tearful good-bye to our blue eye'd beauty "Casino". In less than one week, with several emergency vet trips and a specialist visit, a large mass tumor was detected behind her left eye. Rest well sweetie, the fields are there for you to run full tilt in now. You can view our tribute to her on our Blog.
