MEGAN - ISDS 278319 Born July 5th. 2005
After Roy ISDS 255024
and Kate ISDS 254362
I got MEGAN in 2009 from G. Brinkman in Holland, where we a couple of years before saw her at the Dutch Open Trials.
We thought we saw something exciting in Megan. And our intuition has proven right
She quickly fitted into the pack together with our other dogs, but we did use a lot of time getting knowing each other really well , which included having to change one of her commands, simply because I couldn't get her work excactly enough.
Megan is very cooperative, and is incredible controllable.
She is very determined and move even the tuffest sheep.
She can take incredible pressure, and I assume she will not give in until she is fainting.
I enjoy working with her, having achieved quite good results - being.
Danish Continental Team menber 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Starting at the 2011 World Trials.
2013 Oct. 7th. Megan delivered 4 puppies (Hemp, Spot, Kate and Gwen) - preventing her in qualifying for the 2014 Continental team.
From that litter I've kept Kate and Spot
In the winter 2016/17 Megan was retired from active trialing due to her age. And additionally, in the summer 2017, I decided to give Megan back to Gabrielle Brinkman who appreciated having her back, and will take good care of Megan in her retirement.
Megan is both clinical and genetic tested free of CEA
Megan is a Welsh diminutive form of Margaret, from Greek 'margaron', "pearl", and thus means "little pearl".
SPOT - ISDS DK/329438 Født 7. okt. 2013
efter Megan ISDS 278319
og Phil ISDS 301837
Spot er kuldbror til Kate, men en komplet anden type. Han har længe været en slagt "Black Horse".
Han har været længe om at udvikle sig i træningen. Arbejde har han hele tiden villet, men forståelsen for samarbejdet og præcision var ikke hans stærke side. Arbejdet skal efter hans mening bare gøres hurtigt og effektivt.
Alligevel har jeg beholdt Spot, for han kan flytte får - mange får, da han helt fra sin tidlige alder, viste stor talent for at holde får. Begge vigtige ting når vi taler om en arbejdshund.
I konkurrencer har jeg startet ham nogle gange i kl 2. hvor han har et par vinderplaceringer på kontoen
Fremtiden skal vise, hvad ham vil udvikle sig til.
I november 2018 kom Spot til Tyskland til en besætning med 1500 moderfår, hvor han skulle afprøves for at se om han ville være en god arbejdshund .
Efter at han der have vist sine evner, er Spot blevet købt af en tysk Sfårefarmer med en besætning på ca. 2000 moderfår.
Han bærer mange af sine evner videre fra sin far Phil og farfar Roy
LAD - ISDS 201994 Born d. 18. May 1992
after Ben ISDS 178302 (Palle Q. Petersen)
and Jess ISDS 195063 (Palle Q. Petersen)
7/2-2008: It is sorry to announce that today I had to say the last goodbye to LAD.
After a reign of years with good work, he moved to Thea to spend his last 7 years in retierement there. At the last he suffered a little of reumatisme but his eyes still were sparkling if he was with me to the sheep.
The last 3 days he couldn't get on his feet by himself, and because I long time ago desided that he shouldn't be kept alive and suffer in an undignifying treatment, the desicion today was to put him to rest.
I owe Thea great thanks for taking care of him througout the years. He will be missed by both of us.
LAD was my first dog, and will for ever be remembered as very special. It was with him by my side that I started my sheepdog careear, and he has paitiently been stanting up to all my failours and mistakes as a novice shepherd.
He is a son after Palle Quist Petersens BEN (who was imported from England) and Palle Quist Petersens JESS, which was after Kaj Lawsens LYNN og Per Berg Jacobsens GLEN.
LAD was born the 18th. May 1992. Since 1995 has he participated i open trials, becoming Nr. 7 at the Continental Championship 1996 as his best result. He was continuously member of the Continentalteam from 1996 till 2002. He became second at the Danish Championship Sep. 1999 - Second to my late NELL, and the year after he repeated the same position
NELL - (ISDS 224851) born the 14th. February 1996
after Craig (ISDS 188252) David L Stewardson (Int. Sup. winner 1995)
and Nan (ISDS 196461) Alister R Mundell
Nell I bought on my first trip to Scotland in 1996
I've visited David L Stewardson and seen his Int. Sup Winner Craig, and later met Alister R Muldell at a Trial near Loch Lomond, where I saw his Nan running.
After longer negosiation Mr. Muldell decided that I could buy Nell - a deal I never regreat afterwards.
As only 7 month she won the Danish Class 1 Championship, and with her very natural instinct and sheepsence, she was a dream to train and handle.
Later she more times became member of the Danish Continental team, and took part in more of the great international trials in Europe.
Nell died too early only 8 years old
2001Nell gave birth to my Roy

and NELL (ISDS 224851)
Monday July 14th. 2014 was the ending of Roy's career. Well over 15 years old and after a long sheepdog life , where he and I had a lot of good expiriences both here in Denmark as in many places around Europe. If the the big results on the trialfields came up the many mistakes were merely mine than Roy's who often was able to correct the situation by himself
Now he's resting on the farm next to his father LAD and Mother NELL
Roy was through many years my "number 1 dog". But after he graduatly lost his hearing around the age of 12 he could enjoy his retirement in the trialworld but still carried out some farm work.
Roy is my own breeding after my late LAD and my late NELL, (after Stewart Davidsons 1995 International Surpreme Champion CRAIG - And Danish Champion 1996 og 1999 ).
ROY was a clever and very cooperative dog with the best temperement. He was always happy but also a very sensitive, and ready to do the work asked for. He might not have been the most flashing looking dog, but he was undoubtly strong, reliable and efficient.
Throughout the years he has been a very healthy dog - the visits to the vet mostly were vaccinations.
In addition to daily work he participated in open trials. Since year 2000 - only 2 years old - and continuously up to 2010 in both inland and abroard.
He has for 10 consecutive years - from 2001 to 2010 been member of the Danish Continental team - in 2003 and 2006 as teamcaptain.
At the Danish Championship Sep. 2002 he became second, and at the World Sheepdog Trials in 2008 Roy was running the semifinals.
And not to forget - he has since a pup alway been with me at sheepdog demonstrations.
Roy is farther to Gunillas Phil, and to my Bess. and granddad to Craig, Gwen, Spot og Kate. And there are offsprings related to him in more European countries.
ROY was clinical eyetested for CEA og PRA without any marks.
His HD status was A - A.
