|The "devil" of our life! When Ethan came into our lives, our whole perspective of aussies has changed...Although our girls are active, keen and willing to please,
Ethan has upped the ante on energy, attitude, heart and loyalty. He has been a butt wiggler since the day he arrived and there is not a mean bone in this boy's body!
|His crazy antics have put more than one grey hair on my head but I wouldn't have it any other way:) A handsome dark redhead with incredible movement & soundness, this young dog has already made his mark in the showring of several registeries.|
|A Multi Best of Breed Puppy winner in ASCA|
|At Ethans very first Canadian Specialty at 6 months of age, he was Best of Winners & Best Puppy in Specialty Show handled by Tyler!
That evening, reserve winners dog in ASCA.
|We headed south to the ASCA Nationals in Longview, WA where Ethan & Tyler continued the excitement by placing 4th & winning two 1'st in class and pulled for Winners dog at the National Preshows!!|
|Ethan finished his Canadian Championship before 8 months of age and won 10 Best Puppy in Groups, 4 All Breed Best Puppy in Shows.
He was consistently Best of Opp sex to our Vixen, and when he started beating her for the Breed & placing in the Group we knew we had one heck of a puppy!
|2000 brought about a trip to the USASA Nationals in Bakersfield, CA where Ethan won 1st in the 12-15 mth sweepstakes class and onto Best of Opposite Sex in the National Specialty Sweeps!!
Way to go Ethan & Tyler!
|In the summer, Ethan attended the ASC of Washington Spectacular shows to hopefully obtain his ASCA Championship.
He certainly didn't let us down, by winning three straight 5 pt majors.
All Best of Winners including a Best of Breed over Specials to finish in grand style:) Huge Thanks to his breeder Barbara Hager for handling our boy for us.
|We will be forever grateful to Barb ~ Blue Isle Aussies for not only our "Ethan man", but for her friendship & support as well!|
With offspring in 10 countries, Ethan has produced some incredible kids, from a Supreme Versatility Champion, to several WTCH's, and a multitude of National Specialty & Finals winners in several disciplines and registeries.
MANY Agility Ch's, Obedience Ch's, Best in Specialty Show to Multiple Premier winners, along with a #1 bitch in Canada & #1 dog in Finland.
The titles & accomplishments along the way for his offspring, are too numerous to list, but rest assured, we are incredibly proud of them all!!
Most of Ethan's offspring are in performance homes and
continually excell in all canine sports.
