Spur is a Sadi x Tuffy
pup, 2006 edition!
September 8, 2010 - I just can't wait to tell you.......our
little red Spur is now a WTCH!!!! She got 2 HIT cattle out of the 5 Black Sheep
trials over Labour Day in Spokane.....beating out some top notch dogs on those
runs. Wayne Kirby wanted to take her home, but he did call a run when he saw
some wool stuck to her mouth. Wonder how that got there? She got her WTCH in the
first 4 trials, and this was the first time she has been trialed in a year. Talk
about stress...for me. On Monday everything went to hell, but we didn't
care...she already got her job done.

Spur Q'd again in the ASCA 2010-2011 Merit Awards!
#3 Advanced Trial Dog - Cattle &
#5 Advanced Trial Dog - Ducks
October 2009 - Our 1st ASCA Nationals! I didn't get in
on pre-trials, so I had no idea what Spur would do after being penned up for
over a week. Well, first off the little red devil got her first 'thanks' on
sheep and ducks. Even after a not-so-good take pen, she came through with the
rest of her run on cattle. Although I had to put the screws to her she made all
obstacles, four cows through the center, and came in second with a respectable
102 from Wally Butler. Add to that some great runs which resulted in
Spur being #4 Open Sheep and #7 Open Ducks!
Spur had a great year!!! ASCA Awards of
Merit on ducks and sheep!!!
September 2009 -
This last year we tested open trials with FEO. Then I decided to trial at the
Rustler's Roundup north of Spokane over Labor Day. She got all her open titles
in the first two trials. Out of the 15 runs all scores were over 100 except
two. Her personal best was a 120 on cattle from Judge Roy Sage. It was a
text book run. Her high score on sheep was a 115, and a 113 on ducks. She won
her first belt buckle, and some other beautiful prizes.

It's hard to know what
to say about Chyne, because I could go on and on and on! She's Foss's best
"right hand man" around the farm,
his truck buddy, bed
buddy when they're away at trials, and she even helps keep his Wranglers up by
letting him wear either of the two
beautiful silver belt
buckles she won in 2006 and 2007 at the Three Rivers Working Australian Shepherd
Association (Oregon) trials.
Two years in a row
Chyne came home with the High Combined Open Trial Champion buckle!
