I knew better than to name her Splash, they always live up to their name! But what a fun puppy to work with. She is full of energy, fun loving but also loves to please. She has tried everything we've exposed her to and done so with enthusiasm. Splash "cannon-balled" into the show world getting 3 majors and 11 points her first 2 weekends from 6-9 month puppy class. While I can't take credit for breeding her, (thanks Valerie Iddings Salisbury) I did breed both of her parents. Her pedigree includes many of the dogs I've owned and loved. Her father is a full brother to Cootie and has the job of bringing n the shredded mail and paper to the Salisbury home each day. Her mom also resides with Valerie.

And she went down the ramp and swam a lap! I had to go in and push her back to the ramp.
Sheep caught her interest as well.
YouTube videos of her herding:
Splash wasn't lightning but she stuck with it running consistently earning her BCAT.
Splash got 2 Q's to earn her IT (Herding Instinct).
Wow. At just 12 months old, Splash made me proud placing third in 12-15 month puppy sweepstakes, 2nd in Open AOC for the national specialty show and 2nd in Open AOC for the parent club show.
