CH. Wild Wind's Start Me Up CD RA "Race"
Race is a lovely dog, co-owned and co bred with our dear friend Janet Kaufmann. Janet and Laura owner handled Race to his championship, earning all of his points from the bred-by class. Race has won very nicely at all breeds as well as specialties-under both all-rounder and breeder judges working towards his Grand Championship. He has a lovely face, head and expression, and is SO SOUND! He is talented on working sheep; he has a leg on his RA. Race is a smart, enthusiastic working dog as well as a beautiful show dog. He had already sired a few litters here at Wild Wind Collies and we are THRILLED!
GCH Wild Wind's Tell Me No Lies "Tru"
Tru went to live with the Billingsley family. Julie had Laura handle Tru to his championship, which he did in short order. We let him grow up a bit and at a little over three years old Laura told Julie she wanted to "play" with him in the ring a bit in the end of 2012, and PLAY THEY DID! In just a few weekends of showing Laura had piloted Tru to many BOV wins as well as a Group 1, two Group 2's, a Group 3 and a Group 4! We couldn't be more thrilled or excited about this beautiful young boy!
Silver GCH Wild Wind's Rev On The Red Line "Flynn"
Flynn was born in August of 2012, he was beautiful at birth and just kept becoming more and more stunning. My dear friend Janet Kaufmann loved him from the beginning. We had always planned on Janet keeping and co-owning the pick puppy from this litter (Race X Samantha).
Flynn attended his first local specialty in April 2013 at the Collie Club of Colorado. He was barely seven months of age and went Winners Dog/ Best of Opposite Sex over rough specials and then on to Best of Opposite Sex to Best of Breed at the end of the day garnering him a five point major! His next shows a few weeks later were in Laramie, WY where he won Winners Dog/ Best of Winners for two more majors on his second and third trips into the ring. The next weekend he was only entered on Saturday where Janet piloted him to Winners Dog/ Best of Winners and Best of Variety over some lovely specials and on to a Group 2 in a tough herding group at the Flatirons Kennel Clun show. We know he is a handsome devil, full of fun and attitude. We think sky is the limit for this stunning young dog.
CH Jerico's Wild Wind Shoot To Thrill PT "Tony"
After having a rough time with an anticipated litter of puppies and not having what Laura and I wanted to go on with, our friend Cheryl Sulewski called and told me she had a beautiful tri smooth boy out of one of my favorite dogs, "Carson" that she would offer to Laura and I. It didn't take me long to think about it and I took her up on her lovely puppy, and we have NEVER looked back.
Tony came to us at ten weeks of age, full of himself, smart and enthusiastic. I took him herding a couple of days after he arrived here at Wild Wind and he was intense! He has attended only a couple of shows, has a couple of nice Reserve Winners Dog wins and a lovely 4th place class win in the 6-9 month Smooth Puppy dog class at the CCA in 2013. Being and big boy, Tony has stayed home a bit to grow up and develop, we are so impressed with him, we are looking forward to showing him in the fall shows here in Colorado.
In the meantime Tony and I have been working on obedience, agility, and herding. He never tires of herding sheep and practicing heeling. He is already retrieving and starting to do scent work and go outs! He is fearless in foundation work in agility, he has not met the obstacle that he doesn't want to climb over, go through or jump over. Tony will no doubt be very well rounded with titles on both ends one day.
