From Maryse Shank: "Here is Sasha doing her routine at agility. She has learned a lot in 16 weeks and we are looking forward to the next level. She loves it and is a much faster learner than I am! It's a BLAST.

New Champion

Congratulations to Bonnie Hong and Maureen Ames of Gait-Way Australian Shepherds. ASCA/AKC Ch. Stonepine Sirius Black, aka Boomer, has finished both his AKC and ASCA championships! Great job and so very proud of you.

Happy Boys

Thanks to Christine Wue for sending this great pic of Otis, Stonepine's Root Beer Float RN (red merle on the left) a  his best buddy, Ethan. Visit his website!


Stonepine Silk Kimono, owned by Joanne Prada is not only gorgeous, but she has quite a few brags and titles!

"Hailey earned her 3rd. Novice FAST leg for her NF title with a 1st. place. She earned her 2nd. Open Jumpers leg with a 1st. place. She also earned her 2nd. Open Standard leg with a 1st. place. Therefore, Hailey is now officially Stonepine Silk Kimono, AKC/ASCA CD, RE, NA, NAJ, NF. I may enter her in one more trial before year end and maybe she can finish one of her Open titles. She is a stunning agility dog with a strong work ethic."

"Did you receive my last e-mail of a few weeks ago about Hailey being ranked as No. 1 for Novice A Agility in the latest Aussie Journal? I wanted to be sure you saw that as she may be overthrown from the No. 1 spot before the year is over. She is also ranked as No. 2 for Novice A Jumpers in that issue.


Thanks to Sharon Ruppel of Hemlock Aussies (CT) for this gorgeous and updated photo of "Dancer," Stonepine Heatherhill Private Dancer.

Dax the Wonder Dog Looking for the Perfect Home!

A gorgeous neutered red merle son of Ch. Stonepine Shiraz "Rozz," by Ch. Hisaw's Its A Cinch For Gingerbred is waiting the for world's most perfect home. He belongs in a full-time owner home: this means that someone is home all day or takes the dog with them all the time. Dax can jump out of any fence made. He is the smartest darned dog I have bred or owned. He taught himself to ride a skateboard. Yes1 I had to go out and get him one. He was not raised around children. He tolerates them but would do better in a home with no small children. He had been raised around cats, horses, goats and lots of other dogs. He has been to several obedience classes and walks very well on lead. He is full of joy and has a lot of drive. He needs a special someone that can keep up with him.

Sketch and Sally in their new Homes!

Congratulations to Linda and Dennis Moreno on the newest addition to their family; Sally! Sally is a gorgeous 1-year old black tri girl. Her Dad Ch. Hisaw's It's A Cinch For Gingerbred "Cinch," and her mom is Ch. Heatherhill Jada De Ville who resides here at Stonepine Australian Shepherds.

Also great good luck to Sharon Ruppel, Hemlock Australian Shepherds on her acquisition of Stonepine Etch-A-Sketch, "Sketch!" Sketch is sired by "Stoney," Ch. Taycin's Just a Stone's Throw and out of one of our outstanding bitches, Heatherhill TaBoo, "Fallon." Thanks for the nice updates, Sharon. It sounds like a match made in heaven!
