Most of my dogs are placed in permanent homes as spoiled rotten family pets. Every once in a while however I get a request like I received from Sherrie Scott (Spring Fever Australian Shepherds) of Utah looking for an outstanding Juniors dog for her incredibly talented daughter Katelyn. After consulting with Alan McCorkle (Heatherhill Australian Shepherds) we offered a young bitch I had bred, China (Stonepine Shanghai) to Katelyn. Well the rest is history. Am I proud of this team and their accomplishments? You betcha. As Katelyn's successful Junior Showmanship career draws to a close, this photo says it all for me.
