2001 Purina Champion

"Rocky" finished his Canadian championship at the tender age of 91/2 months! He finished at the OKC show in Nov/00 taking BOB, Grp 4th and BPIS, from the Senior Puppy Class, defeating 3 BIS specials, and 2 Am/Cdn CH's! He was undefeated as BPIB through the 3 days of showing, finishing up with another BOB & BPIB! In Dec/00 he went off to Winnipeg, garnishing another BOB, Grp 4th and BPIG!

He topped off 2001 by being chosen one of 20 for the Purina 2001 Champions Campaign. He was the April boy for their 2002 calendar!

He was a joy to show, and just loves it! No matter who's on the end of the leash.

"Rocky" completed his American title under the guidance of Dr. Sherry Lee, Linden Shelties, Florida. We can't thank her enough.
He finished in ONLY 13 shows!! His majors were accomplished in his first 2 show weekends! In 13 shows he received 2 major RWD, 5 BOW (one under respected breeder judge Dr. R.E. Carpenter) and 1 BOS.

Since his main show career he's been shown on the odd occasion, winning several BOB's & Grp placements,
a Brace Competition with his 1/2 sister Ch Shelamo Party At the Palace, along with making the final cut of male Specials at our CSSA National 2006.

In one of his appearances as a Veteran, we took him to the Dominion Collie & Shetland Sheepdog Assoc Specialty in 2010 where he came away with Best Of Opposite Sex, plus winning the 1st Helen Lovett Memorial Trophy!

Most of all he was our 'heart' dog with such a loving temperament that all who meet him want to take him home!

"Rocky" goes to the CSSA National

In late April of 2010 we travelled to our CSSA National in Saskatoon with our Veteran's Boy, "Rocky". I just love to show my best bud, as he never misses a beat! In fact he is more likely to show me how he'd like it, such as restacking himself on the table! Shown here being judged by respected breeder/judge Judy Kelsey of Dury Voe Shelties. His daughter Ch Shelamo Tyme Descends also went along and made the 1st cut in the female Specials. We are very proud of this boy, he's been such an ambassador of the breed.
Thank-you Peter (Laureate) for capturing these beautiful moments of our boy.

So this is where we part, My Friend,
And you'll run on, around the bend.
Gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you'll surely find.
I will go on; I'll find the strength,
Life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
Share one last look, before I grieve.
There are others, that much is true,
But they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
Will remember well all you've taught.
Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
The fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
Take with you this...I loved you best.
-Jim Willis
