Agility Dog!

Merlin LOVES his agility! He is a great team mate who never quits on me. He is always willing to do whatever I want him to, and is SUCH a smart boy, too!! He is a lot of fun to run, and we always have a great time together - Q or no Q!!

Show Dog!

2007 has been a FABULOUS year in conformation for Merlin!! On June 9, 2007, at the Cascade ASC shows, Merlin was WD/BOW under breeder judge Ginger Abbott for a 3 point major! Then July 1, 2007, at the huge ASC of WA Summer Spectacular show, Merlin was again WD/BOW, this time for a 5 point major under breeder judge Pamela Nelson (see photo on right)! Then on December 2, 2007, at the ASC of BC show, Merlin went WD/BOW for 4 pts. under judge Merlin Vandekinder ~ to finish his ASCA CH!! (See picture below) I'm so VERY pleased!! Merlin took BOW each time he took WD. Thanks to all the judges who gave Merlin his wins!

Merlin's Herding Instinct Test

Merlin passed his Herding Instinct Test on June 22, 2002. I am so proud! He sure did a great job. Thanks so much to Jen Petlig for taking the boys when we couldn't make it. It's great to have that first title! He also requalified for his HIC on Aug. 31, 2002, with pictures from that below. I think he likes the sheep!

Here are some more pictures!

Merlin's Big Day!

Merlin had a great day at the Seattle Kennel Club show on Feb. 2, 2002! He was Reserve Winner's Dog and then chosen Best of Breed Puppy, allowing him to compete in the Puppy Herding Group (something SKC does every year). And what a nice picture! I am SO proud of my gorgeous boy!

Merlin also had a nice day at the Whidbey Island Kennel Club show on Nov. 17, 2002, where he took Reserve Winners Dog to Magic's brother Maverick!

Having Fun!
