Cascade

We got Cassie when she was 6 months old from a rescue centre Spetember 2000.  She is a blue merle working sheepdog (border collie without papers).  She came to us in a very bad way and it has taken a long time to get her right.  She is a totally crazed dog, has a very strong eye and watches everything that moves.  She never sleeps, she is always alert and active.

Her main discipline she works is agility, she has won me out of starters in 2002 in her first year of competing, only ever having done one show in 2001.  She won me out at her 6th show.  Winning me out of elementary at her 4th show and she has won me out of elementary about 5 times over.  She qualified for Novice Grand National and Adams Derby finals in 2003, picking up 5 faults in both.  She also won starters canine freestyle at her first show.  Having also done displays at Crufts, Discover Dogs and Pets N People,

She also does flyball and competed in the YKC ring at Crufts in 2002 & 2003, also will be in 2004.  She also did YKC Biathlon (obedience and agility) at Crufts 2002 and has qualified along with triathlon Crufts 2004.  I retired her from obedience after Crufts as she hated it 2002, but I started it up again with her.  I now use the clicker and she works well for it., enjoying it much more.
