Dear Old West,
We thought it was time to send you an updated picture of Aimee, born March 1st 2015 (Loretta X Ransom). We retired to Idaho on a small 2 acre place where Aimee has it all - snow, water, fishing and lots of space for agility and running. And when the neighbor’s Angus break out, Aimee is the first to notice begging to be let out to herd them back in. Aimee is awesome! Loyal, strong, smart and gorgeous - thanks for our girl!


Dear Kitsy,
We hope this email finds you well! I don't even know where to start in regards to how much we love your dogs! It's hard to believe but Chloe turns 11 this year...she was from Cinder's Nov 07 litter. We were familiar with herding dogs (having a Border Collie when we got Chloe) but nothing could prepare us for the joy Chloe that is. She is brilliant and has the best temperament of any dog we have ever owned. She goes everywhere with us, she has moved cross country with us 4 times and is a frequent guest at many hotels. We love her so much that when talk came of getting another dog, even though we now live in Connecticut we decided we had to have another puppy from you. We are so excited to be welcoming another Old West puppy to our family. Thank you, we can't wait for the new arrival. And thank you again for breeding what I feel are the finest Aussie's in the world. The Malone Family



Hi Kitsy,
I have often thought how almost 16 years ago we rec'd our first of two dogs from you. Presley (Willie x Amanda 9/10/02-black tri) and Kiwi (Willie x Amanda 8/02/03-blue merle). Attached are a couple of pictures I sent you all those years ago and a couple of amusing ones. After almost 16 years, Presley passed away tonight peacefully. She was a wonderful dog and so much fun! Kiwi is 15 years now and still going strong. She is still a mischievous one with the cutest personality. Presley and Kiwi brought us so much joy over the years. Looking at your site's puppy page, reminds me how we started our road to acquiring two of the best dogs ever! Perhaps we will be fortunate to have another Old West Aussie in the future! All the best and thank you for our gems.

Kindest regards,



I just wanted to share a couple of pics I took of Roxy (Feathers X Tuff 12/12) & Eli (Jinx X Ransom 4/18) this morning. Eli has been with us a little over a month now and has adjusted to his new home as if he’d always been here. He is sweet and smart just like Roxy. They really get along great which is what we were hoping for. Thanks again for another amazing dog!

Hello Kitsy
Here is a recent picture of Shiloh
(Sutter x Primrose 10/17). She is getting big and her coat is growing out. She still acts like a puppy and loves to play.

Hi Kitsy,
   Dot (Sutter X Loretta 9/17) has been a wonderful addition to our family. She is an amazing companion.
Every morning she greets each one of the family with her cute wiggle butt, she follows
us around everywhere and lays next to us wherever we sit. Her fur, look and temperament remind me of her mama ,Loretta, so much.
   She loves hiking and exploring. We plan on taking her and the kids on a five week across the country trip this fall. I am sure it will be fun.
   We love her so much and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Quentin (Sutter X Loretta 9/17) is about 6months now and doing great! He's a bucketfull of energy but he's a very good boy. 


Hi Kitsy,

I wanted to update you about Kona (Ransom x Jinx 4/11/2017) on her first birthday. It's been a very active past year with this high energy pup, always ready to run, jump, and play, and so very smart. She has learned many commands and tricks and is a favorite at the park where she will fetch a ball or frizbee for literally hours. 


When I arrived to take her home, you said to me that you thought I would enjoy her personality....you were right! All that puppy play she foisted on her litter mates translated to a very energetic and relentlessly curious puppy once we brought her home. She is absolutely beautiful, healthy, and a sweet and loyal companion. I'm attaching some pictures of her so you can see what a beautiful dog we have. 


I want to thank you so very much for sharing this amazing Aussie with me and my family. Congratulations to Ransom and Jinx for their new litter!

Hey Catherine just wanted to see you some photos of Mylo
(Sutter X Primrose 10/17) and a brief update on how he's doing! He's growing very very fast, he's almost 50lbs and loving llfe! we are about a month into a private puppy training course and he's doing really really well, can sit, lay down, stay, heal and come very very well! His disposition is very similar to when he was a puppy, very low maitnance, just loves exploring and doesn't freak out about much of anything, just a happy go lucky goof ball. The trainer wants to get him into print modeling for puppy food, cause his personality in his face is so sweet!  Any who, below is a series of photos that i felt best capture him, can't wait for him to be fully grown, the puppy calculator calculates he will be nearly 60lbs!       Cheers



Hi Kitsy

She is growing fast and very smart. She already sits, stays, come when called, down stay, leave it, watch.  Shiloh
(Sutter X Primrose 10/17) is a dream come true.

Thank you

Hello Kitsy!
 Just a quick update about Christopher Robin, "Topher" from the Oct 4, 2017 (Sutter X Primrose) litter. We're the folks up in Santa Cruz area, Marianne and John.  Topher is doing fantastic! He's a star in his puppy and family dog classes. His personality is wonderful and he charms everyone who meets him.  He loves his beach and forest adventures.  We don't have as many bandages on our arms now that he's finally getting his adult teeth.  In April we'll take him to a low-level ( no jumping, just puppy basics) Disc Dog workshop. While he's still full of puppy mischief and energy, he can be very snuggly and mellow too.We're very happy with him.

Hi Kitsy, just a note to let you know that Gunner (Sutter X Loretta 9/17), formally Shadow, is doing well. He loves all people and dogs and is very food motivated in the learning process. He is not the kind of dog that loves to be petted and cuddled as he thinks any attention means play of chew but we are having lots of fun with him.
Take care, Roger Lane
