Triple Crown Winner!!!

Yesterday Singer earned his ASCA (Australian Shepherd Club of America) Championship. This is his third herding championship giving him the Triple Crown in herding (AKC, AHBA and ASCA).

Rich and Singer:


The ASCA was a little more difficult for us as Singer had a bad experience on cattle early on. He was not confident and often would not go into pressure to move cows out of corners or off fence lines. he finally got it done though. In ASCA you must compete on all stock (ducks, sheep and cattle) at all levels to earn the championship. In the process we had some failures but great success at other times. Here is the breakdown of how well he did.

1st place 5 times
2nd place 3 times
3rd place 2 times
4th place 2 times
High Scoring Other Breed is given to non Aussie,
High Scoring Other Breed on Ducks 1 time
High Scoring Other Breed on Sheep 2 times
High Scoring Other Breed on Cattle 4 times
High Combined (total of all scores for trial) 2 times
High in Trial ( highest scoring dog overall) 3 times

Also a few weeks ago Singer earned his AKC TD (tracking dog) title.

Alta-Tollhaus Just a Singer is from Funny’s (Faye von Kirschental) last litter, the J-litter.

Annie the Puppy Whisperer

Last time sisters Annie and Katie visited, I had mostly pictures of Katie, this time I mad up for it with a slew of pictures of Beautiful Annie.  Annie had the puppies mesmerized!  This is her holding the cherry-collar girl from the W-litter Hunter x Karma:


Pastel-collar, red-white-collar, and purple-monkey-collar girls:

If I remember correctly this was the lime-green-blue collar girl from X-litter Hunter x Hummel, this pup was squished in her lap and stayed there for the longest time just staring at Annie!:
