Dynasty's Triple Crown, CM "Remi"

had quite a week during the weeklong Eukanuba events.
On Tuesday took a 2nd place in the dogs, Wednesday under Judge Helen Winski Stein Remi won the Best of Breed, Thursday under Judge Judy Webb Remi took BOB and went on to win MISC BIS. Friday he won the Open Tri Color male at our specialty. Saturday he had a great time at the meet the breed booth and enjoyed playing with the pups there. Sunday Remi followed in his father Ref's footsteps and won the Best of Breed and went on that afternoon to win the MISC BIS under Judge Roberto Velez-Pico with over 100 entries
It was a honor to compete against such a quality group of dogs and our young man who isn't 18 months old amazed us. We are so very proud of Remi who is a cross of Dynasty's Instant Replay, CM Ref and Dyasty's Kyra's Got a Wibblebutt, Remi brought together the lines from our first two mini girls and it has taken us years to get this combo. We are so very pleased with the comments from judges on his movement and structure. We are very thankful to Team Remi that include Emma Sunderman (his Jr Handler), Arvind DeBraganca and David Stout(Handlers). Thank you to all of the competitors and for all the support we received from our club.

I think that the Working Aussie Source is one of the best locations on the net to find herding trials and clinics!

The opening page is for ASCA Trials but be sure and click on the Other Calendars and the Regional Calendars and other Events of Interest!



The Miniature American Shepherd is eligible to compete immediately in AKC Herding Trials!  As soon as you receive your AKC/FSS number you can enter an AKC Herding Trial.


Find AKC Herding Trials here!


If you have earned an AKC Herding Title please let me know,
Now that we are eligible to compete in AKC Herding Trials, we want to acknowledge those dogs who are out there earning titles and legs towards titles.
Let's have some fun and gather several photos and videos of our dogs herding!!


Send to me and I will place them in a future Tuesday Talk and maybe we can start a photo gallery of minis herding!


Let's do it right away!!
