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 Halloween

Ursula Bishop's Enzo. Thanks for the Halloween wishes.

Gentry and Phillip

Hoorah to Phillip Gault and Gentry, Stonepine Southern Gentleman. Phillip and family form what we loving refer to as "Stonepine South!" So proud of the whole crew!

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.
