2012 Litter

Fern and Bodie - The Wedding Photo
 Born July 19, 2012 to our very special AKC/ASCA CH EBBTIDE FERN and by the uber-handsome GRCH/ASCA CH HEARTHSIDE NOTHIN' TO LOSE "Bodie",  we are pleased to present 6 puppies - 2 males (1 blue merle, 1 black tri) and 4 females (1 blue merle, 3 black tris).
Here they are at 4 weeks of age:

Now taking competition/performance home reservations on this litter; possibility of an active, training-centered companion home spot on the list, too. Our goal when choosing this breeding combination was a litter sound in mind and body, with breed type and conformation quality and performance talent in agility, obedience/rally and possibly some decent herding talent. MVA competitors?

Evaluations will be made around 8 weeks of age, entire litter CERF'd between 7-8 weeks.  We don't take reservations by sex/color: We place puppies by temperament and suitability to task they are required to perform.  Bodie is now a Hall of Fame Sire in ASCA, and Fern's first and only litter has produced: An AKC Champion, multiple AKC Group 1 BBX winner,  2 ASCA Champions, AKC/ASCA UD , ASCA Nationals RWD, ASCA Obedience Open Finals winner, Rally titled, Agility titled and Herding Tested offspring, and more competing to come.

Both parents, of course, are 2012 CERF clear, OFA hips (Bodie Excellent, Fern Good) & both OFA elbows Normal. MDR-1 results: Bodie Norma/Normal, Fern Mutant/Normal; Both DNA Hereditary Cataract Clear.
