Since then I've lived with multiple dogs of multiple breeds but have devoted myself to breeding, raising, and training Border Collies and a couple specific sports mixes. I am currently "owned" by several amazing Border Collies: Flyer, Jedi, Static, Vixen, Temper, Envy, Chex, Trestle, Lust, Reign, Cynic, Edge, Jazz, Vanity, Ocean, Style, Fiction, Limit, Elation, Vain, Voyage and Legacy. I have a few "non" BCs including four Borderstaffies: Alias, Witness, Jekyll and Profiler. I also have a borderwhippet named Gothik, and four pure whippet Sofie, Lacerta, Twisted and Graffiti along with a pure Staffordshire Terrier named Chrome. Waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge is Dash, Fame, Olé, Vibrant, Aero, Grudge and Zoom. I have 3 cats Sidney, Google and Safari and 4 birds Fruitloop, Figaro, Zazu and Paulie) all of which are rescues/re-homes.
I'm also a huge supporter of rescue and often foster dogs that are in need of training and behavior modification before they can be placed in their forever home. To date I have rescued and successfully placed many dogs, cats and birds of all breeds/variety. I am a full time registered nurse. I have worked full time and part-time in three veterinary clinics from office manager to surgery technician to reproduction assistant.
I was also very competitive and played flyball for 20 years, retiring from Hyper Flight Flyball Team in Dallas TX in 2011 and moving to Las Vegas, NV where I was active as a member of the World Record holding flyball team Touch N Go until January 2016! I made the decision to retire from flyball in March 2016. In that 20 year career, I have earned many titles with multiple dogs, been a part of five NAFA regional championship teams, NAFA Champion Team 2002, raced in the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge four years in the finals 1999-2002 and winning the Purina Championship in 2002, the ESPN Great Outdoor Games finalist two times, the AFLAC Outdoor Games Finalist 2007, & four U-FLI Championship teams including being the 2009 and 2010 U-FLI Division One National Champions and run on a multi World Record flyball team. I have given flyball training seminars all over the U.S. and Canada. In addition, I also teach obedience classes, occasionally I do "in home boarding/training" and do photo shoots for my puppy people when requested and many pets around the Las Vegas area.....so I guess you could say my whole life has "gone to the dogs"...but I wouldn't have it any other way!
I am glad you took the time to get to know me a little bit... and I hope to get to know you better too! I welcome guests to my home and encourage you to come and meet the dogs in person! Thanks for visiting my site!
