I just got home from the International Dog show where Rocky (Old West Rocky Mountain Cowboy) was entered in his first show at 4 months old. He received the highest ratings at all three shows. Some of the judges comments are, quality puppy, good attitude, nice to see an outstanding puppy, happy, energetic, great attitude, moves with happy heart, coat good texture and condition, well developed for age, hocks perfect for breed, perfect movement, enthusiastic baby boy.
All three judges were extremely pleased with Rocky and said he was an excellent show puppy. Rocky won his class and Best of Breed at two shows. He went on to show in Group and won both with Group 1. He then went on to compete for Best in Show. What an exciting weekend. Rocky came home with a Baby National Champion title. One more show with high ratings and Rocky will have his Baby International Champion title.
All day long people were stopping by to tell us what a beautiful puppy he was. He won the hearts of many. I can't wait until he is six months old so we can show him at the AKC shows.
Thanks again Kitsy for such a beautiful, sweet, energetic, happy little boy.
I hope you're doing well; I thought you might like an update on our puppies. Both Maverick and Hobie are thriving! At 12 weeks Maverick weighed 19.1 pounds and Hobie 17.7. They'll go for their final shots this Saturday, at 16 weeks, and we'll see how much they've grown. Christopher had a hard time with his school/work schedule and keeping Hobie in the condo, so he brought him up to my house to stay and play with his brother. From the moment Hobie arrived it has been a non-stop wrestling match. Fortunately, I have enough room for them to have lots of fun. I think Hobie will go back to San Diego with Christopher after the holidays. They're enrolled in a puppy obedience class and can come, sit, lie down, stand, heel, and stay on command--most of the time, at least. Here are a couple of pictures I took yesterday morning (about 6:30 AM--these guys are VERY early risers!). It's hard to get them to stand still, but I got lucky.

Rusty started competing June 21 and got his Novice Agility title on June 29. He has qualified in 5 of 8 runs. He's improving everyday and I'm just glad to have a puppy that is so fond of working.

Just checked your website and see that you're hoping to have another litter with Willie X Amanda. Thought you'd like to know that our 9/10/02 puppy, "Ben", is absolutely outstanding. If I every get computer literate enough to be able to send you photos, I will. He's now 9 1/2 months old and has completed a beginning and intermediate obedience class, as well as his first agility class. I've never tried any agility before, so it's a learning experience for both of us, but so much fun! Hope you can see Ben someday. He's really something, and I think you'd be proud to have been the breeders of this great aussie.
Got some more new
pics of "HUMMER AGAIN" online ....... check 'em out!
He's so fun (and difficult) to get good action pics ..... but I DID !!!

Kitsy and John--
thought you might like to hear how Annie (she should have been named 'Mischief") survived her first weekend. She is a character--into everything--loves the grass and runs and runs. She and Molly are now good buddies and accepted each other right away. Molly was somewhat 'green around the gills' in the car going home and Annie kept giving her kisses. The kisses turned into mauling once they got into the backyard. She looks at you with such an innocent fact and eyes and one can see her mind thinking about "what can I get into next!" Molly is very shy but holds her own. The socializing you did with Annie is evident and we thank you for it.

we love chance.. he is 60 lbs of pure fur and just turned 7 months. Do you think he will get bigger? he is so. very smart and so much fun. he swims, fetches, loves his walks plays Frisbee catch and he is obedience trained . I just love his personality he is always right next to me. ready for anything even to watch a movie. I have been taking him to the elementary school and letting all the kids pet him so he would be a little more socialized. The kids love his blue eye and wiggly butt... Jim says I can have another one.. I am going to wait until he is a year then we will be out to see you... Oh by the way when do you think I should get chance altered? Your last litter was beautiful chrissy says hi.
Hi This is Douglas
and Federica Carrion.
In Sept of 2002 we were give a gift, a blue merle male puppy named Ellington. Purchased by Francesca Avincola for us as an early Xmas present.
Anyway, Ellington is great and super active !! Enclosed is an image I took via digital camera ( it is the only time he EVER stopped to take a photo in his first 7 months !! )
We are going to get him fixed in late Aug or early Sept of this year and soon afterwards would like to get him a friend. Could you please put us on the waiting list for a Blue Merle pet quality female puppy.
Thank you in advance... Ellington is amazing and we love him dearly!
Our little princess Maya is doing well (Cisco x Patches 02/21/2002, Mika's sister). She's the sweetest, nicest, most caring & cuddly dog. We absolutely love her. She's really really girly and she loves to bring her toys and our socks to us. She knows sign language and she's smart as a whip. She's been to 2 different puppy schools and she's now studying for her bachelor's in agility at a really good private school. We love her dearly! (can you tell?) People stop us at the dog parks and around town and go out of their way to comment on how absolutely beautiful she is. Of course, we politely nod and say "yes, we know". :) She absolutely loves water. We can't keep her away from the hose when we're watering the garden, and she has her own pool (spoiled thing!). We're so glad we have her, and we recommend you to everybody we come across that's interested in an Aussie. Thanks for everything, and we look forward to getting a brother for her soon. Love, Mike & Allie.
