Talk about DRIVE!! He could play for hours with a hose if I would let him!! However after everyone comes in and relaxes he is right there in your face wanting to be loved on!!
She is a busy body!!
AND the social butterfly of the group!!!

Kane penned his Chihuahua "sheep" with no gripping!!
(for those wondering the Chihuahuas are from left to right "Nessie" one of my hand raised orphans, "Ren" a silly male I am trying to show, and "Chewee" the old man that is a rescue.)

He passed away yesterday. He lived a very good long life, taught me more about working cattle than I ever thought a dog could. He worked anything and everything I ever asked him to (and did it with "STYLE"). He made me friends all over the WORLD... and I will be forever grateful for the few kids (and outstanding grandkids too) he has left behind.
He was an UK import, He had the fancy import papers and import name, He had plenty of titles (ASCA WTCH, USBCHA Open Level winner, AKC Advanced titles you name it ... )but to me he was just my 'Ispers"
His granddaughter is Chris Chambers "Mollie". She was 3rd in Nursey and 13th in Open at the Canadian National Sheepdog finals just recently. She will be running both Nursery and Open in the USBCHA finals starting this coming weekend. I am sure grandpa "Risp" will be smiling down on the sheep field in VA saying "Go Mollie!!!"

I have my own very vivid memories of this day (I was living outside of DC in Northern VA at the time).
This video is one I would very much like to pass along for others to see.
Take a moment to be grateful for our great nation. (Especially today)

Mollie is a pup from my homebred female "Gem" (Imp. Meg x Imp. Risp) and Chris's male "Tag".
Chris and Mollie have a relationship that one can hardly describe ... on and off the field it is a joy to see the two together. (Mollie is a spoiled house dog!!)
Mollie is just over two years old and seems to mature and get better at every trial!! She is "over" qualified for the USBCHA National Nursery Finals (she has a dozen Nursery wins at least)... and she is also qualified in Open at the National Finals this year too!!
Some that read this blog regularly might remember she was the 'baby' that made the double lift finals at the Bluegrass this year too!!
I should also mention that Mollie's daddy "Tag" ran VERY VERY well at the Canadian National finals making the Double lift (knocking Mollie out of the top twelve). Tag finished 5th overall in the Open Finals!!
I am so proud!!!
