Hudson & Meg had a great weekend at the Pacific Northwest Herding Club’s fall trial at Packleader Farm near Gig Harbor WA in late September. Both dogs earned their Pre Trial titles over Friday and Saturday, and then went on to each earn a “leg” of Started A Course on sheep on Sunday. Great weekend!!
The breeding between Hudson and Meg resulted in 5 lovely, healthy puppies, born June 7 2018. Two boys and three girls, these youngsters are happily settled in their new homes, including little “Halle” who will stay on with Glenda with hopes of adding another generation in the future. Thanks Tracey Geddes for the great “family portrait.” Our next litter is tentatively planned for Summer 2019.
We currently have a litter of 4 puppies “on the ground.” All of these puppies are spoken for.
We are hoping to have a summer litter in early June.
We are also excited to introduce “Oro,” Zorrazo’s Painted In Gold who came home from Europe recently. Born in January, he is the son of EeW-16 NordJW-15 FiJW-15 Fi Ch Se Ch Hr Ch Hr jCh Don’t Tell Mama de Sinkovic ” Milow” x Brunilda de Sinkovic. He is a personable and outgoing puppy; we look forward to watching him grow!
We are proud to announce that with very limited showing, Hudson and Fasu were the top winning Conformation, Rally and Agility Spanish Water Dogs in Canada in 2017. Both earned multiple Group placements, as well as getting a start on their agility titles. We look forward to the breed’s first appearance in the Herding Group in CKC shows in 2018, and more fun in the agility rings!
