Fly is the dog which started it all for me. If anyone knows about training the stock dog, it is something that takes alot of time, dedication and patience. Fly has taught me that and more. She truly is my favorite dog, and as she is getting older, I cherish the time I have had with her, and all her accomplishments. As a novice handler, she moved me from Novice to Open in one year, and has taught me what to look in a dog. At 10 years, she was still going strong, and finished her trialing career at 2010 USBCHA Finals in Virginia.
She truly has been my partner.
Her winnings include 2010 - Fifth at the Calgary Stampede. Finalist at the 2010 EID Classic. 2009 - ASDA Cattle Dog, 2009 Western Canadian Finals Driving Champion, 2009 Triple Crown Reserve Champion, 2008 USBCHA Semi-finalist, 2008 Calgary Bull Sale Champion, 2008 Triple Crown Reserve Champion, 2008 ASDA Cattle Dog, 2006 Triple Crown Champion, 2006 Northlands Farm Fair Champion, 2006 Lloydminster Exhibition Champion.
In her retirement years, she gets to still come to trials, but only to watch from the sidelines. Her offspring are stepping into her shoes, and getting the jobs done on the ranch and on the trial field. Creed, Floss, and Mitch are the ones carrying on the lines of dogs we had started out years ago.
Gone, but never forgotten.
