Arrival Story: Oreo's previous owner turned him after she was diagnosed with cancer. Her 8 year old son brought him into meet the ARPHinc representive and handed her the leash. A bit later the owner died and he was up for adaption. We had just lost our 4 year old aussie Tikka to Kidney failure and heard about this awesome boy in rescue. The rest is history.
Bio: Oreo's Stats: 22 inches~50lbs~black-bi~brown eyes~neutered~~Oreo was the first dog I trained in obedience and herding (only did Jr handling b4 him) He has his ASCA open obedience title and recently finished his Working Trial Championship with me handling him (I was 16 at the time). On June 24, 2007 at 10 years old Oreo got the last major he needed to finished his ASCA altered Championship and Versatility Championship!!!!! He can now enjoy life as a retiree-and VERY well deserved-although he will still be coming to shows to hang out:-) He is the only rescue dog to ever finish a VCH and I am the youngest handler to ever train a dog to this title at only 18 and only 24 days past aging out of Junior status!!! In 2004 he was the ARPHinc Rescue dog of the Year. He is my protector and is a once in 100 lifetimes dog.

I was beggining to think I would never get to write this brag! At 10 years very young Oreo finally found the last major he needed to finish his ASCA altered Championship!!! THis also fullfilled his requirements to become a Versatility Champion as well!!!!! He was a rescue dog that we got through the Aussie Rescue and Placement Helplin Inc., so this is even more special. We think he is the ONLY rescue dog to ever become a Versatility Champion and at only 18 I am the youngest handler to ever accomplish this goal. I am only 24 days past aging out of Juniors! We are an unlikely pair but we overcame the odds and succeeded:-)

I had a great show this weekend! I went Altered Winners Dog, Best of Winners, and Best of Breed the first show over three specials including one that was #2 in the nation last year and won the Invitational at Nationals. It was SO cool to beat her and very unexpected because she is such a nice girly. THen the second show I did it AGAIN!!!!!
The next day I took Best opposite sex to her but still beat 2 specials!
Smoke and Ty had a good weekend too but Ill let them tell you all about that!
Well, we traveled to Missouri for an ASCA show this weekend and WOW did we do well!!
Oreo took 2 altered Best of Breeds and then 2 altered RWD's. He also greatly increased his fan base
Ty took WD for a four pt major to finish his Championship!!! and then we couldnt move him up so he stayed in the classes and took RWD to a 5 pt major. He specialed in one show the next day but they were AKC judges so he did nothing
Ty and I took two Best Junior Hanlders and 2 Reserve Junior handlers. We are now only one BJH away from 500 club-and we have till May 31 to do it so we will hopefully be ok
I also showed a cute little bitch for someone the show Ty took RWD and she went WB, BOW, BOB for her first 5 pts
