The stepping stones from where life took Maureen in the end.


OTCH Ronas Hill Kraker-jak

"Kraker-jak" was Maureen's first sheltie in the 70's & 80's.  She trained him through her teenage years, competing against mostly adults in the sport.  In all their trials they qualified with either a 1st, 2nd, with one 3rd!
They took many High In Trials, Highest Scoring Shetland Sheepdog, and Maureen, several Junior Handler awards.

Arhope Dunisla Call Me Sibeau C.D.X

When Maureen returned to the dog world in 1988, "Sibeau" was the second dog she trained in obedience.  This also launched her career into being qualified to teach all class levels through the Bytown Dog Obedience Club, and subsequently teaching since 1994 with the City of Ottawa.

They also performed on the BDOC flyball and scent hurdling teams, doing many local fairs, half-time during the Ottawa Rough Rider's football game (to name a few) and pictured at an evening conformation event for the Ottawa Kennel Club.  Unfortunately a flyball accident prevented him from attaining his U.D.



Ch Arhope Simply Sinful C.D.X.

"Logan" was a companion to "Sibeau", arriving @ 10 months of age yet only 2 wks apart in age.  Little did Maureen know that "Logan" would propel her into the show world as well.  Between them, they learned both the ropes of competing & obtaining a conformation championship, the 'art' of specialing in the Breed/Group ring, and at the same time training for obedience titles.  He was what we call a 'balanced dog'!  Brains and looks!
1988- 2000

Shelamo's Pocket Monster, HT

"Ditto" was just over a year when she went to the ASSA National in 2000 and earned her Herding Instinct Title.  It was the first time Maureen had ever participated in this event.  The object of this test is just to allow the dog to exhibit any natural instincts, through at least 5 of the 10 minutes allowed ... and as you can see "Ditto" did just that!

OTCH Shelamo Easy Spirit Am CD & OTCH Shelamo Follow My Shadow

"Esprit" & "Shadow" were both owned by Margaret Lacroix, of Ottawa. "Esprit" was a few years younger than "Shadow", and held his own obtaining the same recognition as "Shadow".  Both obtained 3 Dog World Awards, and many HIT awards to their credit.  "Esprit" completed his Am CD with a HIT and was also invited to the HIT of HITS 2 times.  Both of them were welcomed guest when they did their many senior resident visits.  They each gave over 13 yrs of love & devotion.

Shelamo's Portal Trilogy C.D.X.

"Phoebe" was owned by Megan Thomas & family of Ottawa.  Megan finished her 4th yr at Guelph University in 2002 and during her tenure she participated in a program where the students would take on a community resident's dog for obedience training.  They are training for 1 night a week for 6 weeks, and then it's GRADUATION!  Megan's obedience with "Phoebe" has given her the extra edge to take on the more challenging dogs.  "Phoebe" @ 12 yrs of age, left our world in early 2007.

On Oct 19/03, "Gryhpon" and owner Linda Howie obtained their Agility Dog Of Canada title at the Dream Fields event!  They've also been exploring the herding end of sheltie activities.  "Gryhpon" is sired by the 1st North American sheltie to be awarded the title of Duo Champion - a dog having both breed championship + herding titles.  At only 3 years of age, we can certainly see the potential for "Gryphon" to follow in his dad's pawprints!  Sept '04 at the OKC show in Spencerville he easily obtained his Novice Rally Obedience.  In March/05 he completed his Rally Advanced MCL.  At our CSSA National 2006 in Ottawa he earned his AGN with a 1st placement.  He continues to add titles - early 2008 he has his Advanced Games DC, and now has his Advanced Agility Dog of Canada title with a 1st place.  Of all the dogs that competition in the various levels he was had the fastest 'yards/sec' @ 3.35!  On July 27/08 he added his AGN (Novice Jumpers & Weaves) & AGI (Intermediate Standard).

This team just keeps on amazing us!


They add 2 more titles in one weekend.  His Special Masters Standard Title & Special Masters Team Relay Title.  These came with 7 Q runs, 4 1st places and best runs, and 3 2nd places.  With this he won the Barkley Challenge Award for Best Special Dog at this the OVBCC/ADSC trial.

Shelamo Excuse My Dust CD, CGN

"Dusty" is showing the obedience potential we saw in him as a pup. Co-owner, Pam McGeachie of Oshawa is thrilled about his 1st Novice leg, and CGN title that were achieved at our CSSA '06 Nat'l Specialty in Ottawa.  By the end of the summer he'd finished in 3 + 1 straight trials.

"Shaymus" is owned by Lynn Cuthbert of Ottawa.  He completed his FDX with his "Paws On Fire" team in Nov/08.  He also has one qualifying 1st place for his "Jumpers & "Weaves" agility title.  As of May/09 he now has 2 Jumper Q's with a 1st/Best Run, 2nd and 1 Gambler's Q with a 1st place.

They are also well on their way with a 1st & Best Run for AAC Advanced Gamblers & the same for their CKC Intermediate Jumpers with Weaves.
He has racked up 7 titles all in the summer of 2009, which I think is a record for any Shelamo dog.



In October 2009, another title! Shaymus was a natural during his Herding Instinct Test.




(Majestyk B'Croft Secret Service x Laureate L'Anais)

Now how's this for FUN! Travel across the country on a motorcycle, with your best bud in tow!
Rick & Kris Morin with their boy "Casey" take regular summer cross country trips on their Honda GoldWing. What a thrill is all I can say ... a Performance Dog, just in a different way. Brings back memories of my trip to the East Coast of Canada with my dad on his GoldWing 1000, think it was in the late 70s.
