Arrival Story: Mom judged him as a little puppy and gave him BOSp. She has always like the really dark dogs and we have always LOVED his mother Midge. We really didn't have the room for another dog at the moment so we didn't really think much of it. Then when I went to Marie Murphy's (his breeder) for August to work dogs she still hadn't found a home that she was willing to let him go to yet. I emailed mom and "convinced" her that she wanted him and the rest is history.
Bio: Smoke's Stats: 21inches/45 lbs. OFA excellen/normal, HSF4 clear/MDR1 Clear. There is just something special about this guy and EVERYONE wants to steal him. He is going to be one of the greats. His brother Ice is also a conformation Champion. His mom is WTCH CH Diamond Aire Midnite Mystique "Midge" and his dad is CH Legend's Boomvang "Pulley". Smoke Finished his Championship June 10, 2007 after taking winners dog all three shows!!! He will now be specialed sparingly until he grows up and of course will be focusing on the fun stuff like herding and tracking now...

This last weekend Heather trialed me in open ducks, sheep, and cattle. I am having a little trouble with the crossdrive so she said it was ok if I didnt qualify this weekend...as Long as I tried my best. Well, I sure did try my best and ended up qualifying both days on all three types of stock to finish all of my open titles! I even earned scores of 114 and 107 in ducks which made me High in Trial Ducks, HIT Aussie, HIT overall, High Combined Non-WTCh, and High Combined overall! Should have seen mom's face when they handed her all those prizes! My brother Ice finished his Championship on Friday in conformation and my brother from another mother(and father), Ty, finished his Working Trial Championship on Saturday! Mom was pretty proud of everyone!
Oh yah, almost forgot that my first litter of kids is just about 6 weeks old and getting to look a lot like me!

This weekend at a conformation/obedience/stockdog show&trial Smoke went WD for 3pts friday, WD BOW for 4pts Sat, and WD Sunday for another 4pts to finish his Championship at only 15 months old!!!! He would have taken BOB according to the judge but when he went to go over him one last time Smoke decided to pull his old shying stunt-oh well gotta love those 12-18 month weirdo's:-) He was practically in the judges lap after the show. He is now Ch Diamond Aire Midnite Smoke (on to performance-yay)
