Working Show Dog Litter Announcements

(8 puppies born - 6 girls / 2 boys)

 VCH WTCH ASCA Ch Diamond Aire Midnite Smoke RM CDX AFTDs OFTDdm RTDsc "Smoke"


WTCH ASCA Ch / AKC Bronze GCh Buff Cap Winter Rose OFTDs RTDc "Wynona"

This is a co-breeding between Laconia/Buff Cap and CarMel Aussies. We are excited about the genetics and ability "Smoke" and "Wynona" bring to this cross. Both sire and dam are well accomplished in their own respect; they are working trial champions, conformation champions, with additional farm and ranch trial titles. Smoke also has his CD, RM, and has multiple high in trial awards on stock. Smoke also easily finished his conformation championship at 15 months of age.

Wynona is so very special and sleeps in my bedroom every night.  I am proud of the success she has had in both the trialing arena and conformation ring. Wynona earned her working trial championship at age 4, which included two most promising started Aussie awards, and also earned a farm trial title, and a ranch trial title.  She was ranked #2 and #3 in consecutive ASCA conformation merit year standings (as far as I know, Wynona is the highest ranked WTCH in the history of ASCA's conformation merit standing program). In total, Wynona has accumulated 120 ASCA BOB/BOS wins, is an AKC Bronze grand champion (as far as I know, Wynona is the only WTCH to also be an AKC bronze level grand champion), AKC multiple group placer, USASA Regional Specialty BOS (Novi, MI), ASCA National Specialty Pre-show BOS winner, and was Best Brood Bitch at the HONYASC Regional Specialty with her first liter. And above everything else she is so special to me, and in my opinion is one hell of a talented girl that loves to work stock (especially cattle!) and perform in the show ring.

Considering the virtues of Smoke and Wynona, this litter should produce some very nice working show dogs with great temperaments, nice conformation structure and movement, working ability, and beautiful type. Both parents are great examples of the breed, who are intelligent.......versatile and easily trained.......performing their assigned tasks with great style and enthusiasm. We are currently taking reservations/inquires about this special litter.  If you are interested in competing in multiple venues, especially herding and conformation, you might want to consider this cross.
