Mel is a very forward and confident dog on stock.  She has no tension, flanks freely.  You can put her wherever you want her.  She's a stable and friendly bitch. 

Cato is a trial winner and very consistent performer in Open.  He's a smart outrunner, and excellent driving dog.  He has a fair amount of eye, yet flanks freely and moves onto his stock.  He reads stock well.  He is a dog with the confidence to take all commands at the tough spots on the field and keep control of his stock.  He is extremely stable and outgoing.  Cato and I will be going to the World trial in 2008.

Both parents are quite intense on stock.

NAMES:  I give them names to help keep them straight rather than calling them #1, #2, etc.  This litter was born on the solstice and a friend suggested pagan names.  The pups will be registered with the names chosen by their new owners.
Vesta Roman goddess of the hearth
Lugh An Irish deity represented in mythological texts as a hero and High King of the distant past
Elf No explanation needed here
Rune Secret
Fenrir The wolf
Tyr (Mini Me) Known for his great honesty and courage.  We also call this boy "Mini Me" because he is marked much like his sire.
Fingal Anglicized form of the Gaelic name Fionnghall, which meant "white stranger"
