Mittens

 
August 7, 2000 - July 1, 2016
Much Loved By Anne and Will Hershey
ASCA & AKC TD, TDX

Mittens would have been 16 years old on August 7.   Mittens slept a lot during her final two years, but she could rouse herself for walks, meals, and going  through the dog door to take care of her business out of doors  --- she knew the routine and promoted it.  Last night was different:  she  simply collapsed.   She couldn’t get up, even with help from us, and she didn’t seem to recognize us.  She lost bowel and bladder control.   Our five-year-old male, Kestrel, sniffed her and knew something was wrong.  I put a towel under her.   This morning she still was lying on that towel on  the kitchen floor.   She didn’t lift her muzzle to sniff my  face.   She had left us.  So we did what we knew we had to do.

    Mittens was  a darling  black bi-colored puppy with four white paws and a white shirt front.  Our four-year-old granddaughter, Shasta Tresan, named her “Mittens.”   The puppy  started out with enormous stamina and drive, and she developed into  an excellent tracking dog--- she earned her AKC TD title at age 7 months, on her first attempt.  She passed her AKC TDX at age 2 years at Bear Creek Pheasant Farm near Eugene, OR.   In her prime, I used her as  a demo-dog for my tracking classes.  She earned TD and TDX titles in ASCA Tracking as well.    She entered several VST tests and  nearly passed two of them, but “nearly” isn’t good enough for a Tracking  pass.  She lost confidence at age 11, so I retired her from entering tests. 

  Mittens had severe  bilateral congenital hip dysplasia, diagnosed on x-ray at age 4 years.  We had trained Agility  and earned some novice titles early on,  but I  gave up on Agility soon after her diagnosis.    She was a dedicated natural retriever and loved to retrieve sticks from the surf at Pacific Ocean beaches--- she would swim out and retrieve forever, it seemed.   I’ve owned Aussies since 1989, and each one has had a different personality.  Mittens was very friendly toward people--- really loved people, even strangers,  an unusual trait for Aussies.   But she disliked other dogs, and other dogs disliked her--- she wasn’t  actively aggressive, but she curled her lip and warned other dogs away when  they approached her.  I always have had two Aussies at a time, and Mittens had issues with my other females, Blaze and Patch.   So it wasn’t until  our male Aussie, Kestrel,  joined the family that Mittens had a real dog companion.  Thanks to advice from Susan Roberts, I kept Mittens and Kestrel crated near each other but physically separated for Kestrel’s  first  5 months in the household.  As Mittens relaxed, we all took walks together, and finally the dogs became “friends.”  Kestrel always  has been very solicitous of Mittens, and he will miss her as much as we do. 

    Mittens passed on peacefully.   I held her close and told her she was a “Good dog” and that we loved her.  What more can we do?    I had to say goodbye. I've known it was coming for a while, but that still doesn't make it any easier.

Owned and Loved By Jean Danver

Shortly after 6 pm Saturday, April 16, 2016, Chaps died of heart failure while we were carrying him into Adobe Animal Hospital.

I could tell this was coming on since Thursday. He gradually could walk less and less before dropping down to pant for awhile to get his breath back. By Saturday morning, he could only go about 30 feet before dropping down to pant and rest for a few hours. At that point I knew I was loosing him. Still, he was Chaps to the end, making sure he ate his breakfast and went to the bathroom outside off the lawn. He was happy about the prospect of taking an evening walk even though he only got as far as about ten feet beyond the garage.

The entire Danver family was grief stricken. Chaps was a large part of my life and my family's life over the past 12 years and other people's lives were touched by him as well. Last time we were downtown, someone, I didn't even know, ran a whole block just to pet him.

Chaps was adored by my parents' nursing home, where he played the roll of therapy dog, though he never had any training. Gayle at the Chamber of Commerce building loved to have him do tricks for her for a treat or 2 or 3. The first day we were in Williamstown he embraced the group walking their dogs in the athletic field and that was all it took to become a member of the community. And there was tracking and agility. We went to ASCA Nationals 7 times making friends from all over the country, not to mention Bayteam, SMART, PASA, the folks at WAG, the New England agility folks and AKC communities, friends, children's friends and neighbors. Chaps just had a way of crawling into people's hearts.

Running Chaps in agility was like being in a magically connected 30-45 second world. He had an amazing ability to figure out what we were supposed to do together. Sure we had mess ups, 99.9% of them mine, but that was not often.

By the time he died he had earned 28 agility championships in five different venues, was the 3rd dog to earn an ASCA Master Tracking Dog title and won the Double Digit Agility Finals Champion award at ASCA Nationals two years in a row. He was a PASA Silver Buckle winner seven times. And earned multiple top ten USDAA awards for the past seven years.  But it wasn't the achievements that meant the most.  Chaps was always happy and his happiness made me happy.

Chaps was stricken over night on February 7, 2016 with auto-immune encephlitis.  We thought he would be cured, but the muscle wasting side effects of medication got his heart in the end.   It doesn't seem fair that Chaps was robbed of his old age by this brain disease. He deserved a few years of just taking walks and tending to his bone relocating projects. But then, maybe he didn't see it that way. A long wonderful life and only a couple of months.

Damn I miss you, Chaps, It is going to take awhile.

Today I had to say goodbye. I've known it was coming for a while, but
that still doesn't make it any easier.

She had a very good 3-day weekend in Carson City NV walking around and
saying HI to all her friends at the ASCA show. She was nice and perky at
Denny's class last night. And when we got up this morning. But in that
time between breakfast and leaving for work, she told me it was time.
I'll miss you sweetie... We had a good run (she retired in Sept 2010).
1395 lifetime runs. 831 Qs. Run fast and fun now...

Kanga

 
July 26, 2002 - April 26, 2015
Much Loved By Kathy Murphy

LIFE WITH KANGA

 One day in 2002
I suddenly decided I needed something exciting and new
Somehow my heart became set on getting a puppy
Of course from a breeder as I was a bit of a yuppy

My friend Joanna told me her Australian Shepherd was an absolute thrill
And that I should call this place called Heatherhill
So I gave them a ring and assured them that I had no plans to compete or show
And they told me their partner had a new pet litter just a few weeks ago

So I drove to Arroyos and saw the cutest puppy with one brown eye and the other one blue
And I literally squealed out loud, “Why just look at you!”

Of course before I knew it I had paid my money and put my new pup in the car
And prepared for the drive home which was rather far
And the breeder waved good-bye with some obvious fear
For my ability to care for this dog was not at all clear

Until that time my sphere of responsibilities revolved pretty firmly just around me
And I had no idea how much interference one small dog would be
Well, it quickly became a battle of wills
Not to mention a whole new stack of unexpected bills

She peed on the carpet, she chewed up my shoes
She barked in her crate and I didn’t know what to do
So I enrolled in puppy classes at Planet Pooch
And stoically resolved that this dog would not drive me to drinking too much hooch

We flunked the first set of classes
But I refused to hang my head in front of the masses
So we signed up and took them again
It went a little bit better but I still didn’t win

Then life threw me a curve ball
And circumstances forced me to admit that my boyfriend of seven years was really a louse
And it was time for me and nine-month old Kanga
To move out of his house

So off to a new place we went
And for the first time I paid a mortgage
Instead of just rent

In many ways this was a new start to my life
And I easily could have become lonely and bitter after experiencing such strife
But Kanga wouldn’t have it and insisted each day
Life is meant to be fun and we must go out and play!

And because of my adorable dog
I met my new neighbors in the Pacifica fog
And hiking and dog classes became such a treat
Because of the friends we made and the people we’d meet

I learned the joys of walking in the rain, in the hills, and on the beach
And that Kanga had many life lessons to teach
And often I’d catch myself just grinning from ear to ear
Simply because I was in the presence of this dog who had become so very dear

Problems at work seemed of little significance
When I came home to Kanga who would give me a happy dance
She’d hang her head coyly and show me all her teeth
And wiggle her butt frantically to an imaginary beat

And like all good relationships
We had our own private jokes and rituals
Touch noses and assume the treat position
Became great fun and habitual

And because Kanga was not just incredibly cute but also so smart and so fast
She began excelling in dog classes, at last!
Whether it was herding or agility
Rally or utility
She gave me her best which became pretty good
And I grew to think of her as the little dog who could

And with no schedule to check or concerns about time
She became my favorite travel buddy who’d take off with me on a dime
Jaunts to Carmel and Mendocino were such a blast
And as Kanga got older, I prayed that each trip would not be our last

But our favorite thing of all
Were our trips to Lake Tahoe each spring, summer and fall
We’d hike in the mountains and she’d swim in the lake
And she’d show pure exuberance that just couldn’t be fake

Also best was at night when I turned off the light
She’d find me in the dark and kiss me good night
She instinctively knew it was a gesture I’d need
And I’d fall asleep thankful for all of her good deeds

The first time I heard the term “Heart Dog” I needed no explanation
For Kanga personified it beyond my wildest imagination
She taught me to love without condition
And she knew how to make me laugh just by her own intuition

Simply put, Kanga has been a constant source of pride and joy
I  love her with all my heart and soul, oy!
From her cute furry face to her wiggly butt
She was never just a dog or a mutt

For more than twelve years
She’s been my constant companion and my dearest friend
I cannot bear to write about the end…

In closing I hope that you can clearly see
How much my wonderful Kanga has meant to me

Much Loved By Tracy and Scott Lovelis

Today we had to help Merlin over the Rainbow Bridge. We got him exactly 14 years ago, as a 5 month-old rescue, and he has been a huge part of our hearts ever since. Always had a toy in his mouth, and made friends with everybody. Merlin, Merlie, Squirrely Merlie, the Squirrel...you will be missed.


Kix

Much Loved By Warene Waters

I said goodbye to Kix last week. I have said goodbye to her almost
every week for three days at a time since she was a puppy. But this time
was different, she was leaving me, and not coming home.

Kix was my dream agility dog and our (hers and mine) cataract
nightmare! She was my highest high and my lowest low.

One day we will be able to look each other in the eyes and you will grin
that rare and priceless "Aussie grin" and wiggle that wild and crazy
butt and we will rejoice!

Now you are free to race the wind as fast and furious, long and far as
the desires of your heart. Running with total abandon and barking with
pure joy! RUN my Kix......... RUN............RUN.........
RUUUNNNN..........

Happy Trails,
Warene

Star

 

Owned and Loved By Donna & Ken Highstreet

11/24/98-6/1/12

We said goodbye to our beautiful Star.  She was an extraordinary companion and we will miss her dynamic presence so very much. Three weeks ago she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. We spent 8 more days in the Sierra, camping in areas where we have taken our dogs for many years and spent two weeks at home before ending suffering.

Star was a very strong minded, smart dog who approached life at full speed and gave 100% in everything she did.  She always wanted to be involved in everything.  She was a very powerful dog on the agility course, although she probably could have gone even faster if she didn't bark so much!  We argued for years about staying on contacts until released, and about start lines! Being the independent dog she was, she was great at Gamblers! Those of you who know Star, know that food was of utmost importance to her!  She also had a very naughty streak in her, stealing food whenever possible, one time eating almost an entire apple pie right before we left for agility class!  She was quite the Pig-Dog!  If it wasn't out of reach, she would get it.  I got more careful about this as time went on, but every now and then Star would score a big one! We could go on and on about Star and her life.  Although she died sooner than we would have liked (13 1/2), Star definitely led a fun, quality life, getting to do dog sports, hike, camp, travel in the RV and just hanging with us.  A life any dog would envy.  And we are thankful that she was able to do the things she enjoyed up until the end of her life.  Wed. she stole a bag of nuts off the counter while I was gone, and that night she was playing ball with me in the living room. Ken and I will miss so many things about Star, the way she always greeted you at the door with a toy in her mouth, carrying her food bowl in after eating so she would get a treat, miss all that barking!, miss her hitting us on the leg with her nose to let us know she was there.  Star enriched our lives greatly, and we will always hold her close in our hearts.

Chance
         

Chance
Owned and Loved By Nancy Resetar
1999-March, 2012

Chance could be the most famous PASA dog of all time.  This honor was bestowed on him when he won best of show at Crufts in England, the most famous of all the bench shows.  We all had the pleasure of watching him get interviewed on British TV.

Chance was much more than a very beautiful dog.  He earned titles in agility and herding in both ASCA and AKC and sired many accomplished dogs in many dog sports as well as the show ring.  His passing was felt by all of us at PASA and, probably, the entire Australian Shepherd community.

Too soon gone from our lives, but forever in our hearts.

Tim O'Shanter



Owned and Loved By Margaret, Kyle and Corgi Guthrie
1998 - May 2, 2011

Tim O'Shanter, CGC, Therapy Dog, and clown prince of agility, passed over the Rainbow Bridge May 2, 2011 with Kyle & Maggie in attendance, at his vet's office. Tim was roughly 13 years old, a ripe old age for a large mixed breed.  He spent the last 11 years of his life with us.

Tim was adopted from Monterey SPCA at age 2, as my anniversary present to myself. At age 4, he became my introduction to the wonderful world of canine performance sports, when we attended an agility workshop in search of something to keep him- and me- busy. He managed a single CPE Standard Q over his career, much preferring to hang out at the score table where he could score pats and food.

His shining occupation was 3 years as a certified therapy dog at SVMH, where his gentle nature won over even shy patients. He helped awaken a gentleman from a coma one day at 'work', and if he was a couch potato for the rest of his years, that one moment shows how valuable and meaningful an adopted dog's life can be to the humans around him.

Tim leaves behind many friends, his groomer of 11 years, Tami Baloy, and Corgi the Aussie. His ashes will be spread at Big Sur, near the river he loved to splash around in .

Too soon gone from our lives, but forever in our hearts.

Icee was the litter sister of Auroral's Crimson Tuxedo (Tuxedo) died at age 9 years of heart problems.
Sire: Bar-Ks Aurora Australis (Rory)
Dam: Twin Oaks Auroras Megan (Megan)

She was the last of our Auroral line (from Gold Nugget and Twin Oaks), born 10 days premature and my bottle baby for 3 days when her mother took her back. She was always a sweetie. She had a natural bobbed tail with a bend in it.  When she was really happy she carried that bent tail like a flag which was always worth a chuckle.  She was so weak at birth that it was not hand bobbed as we thought she would die.

Tahoe gave us over 10 great years of companionship, competitive victories, and unquestionable love and loyalty.  We are so grateful that we were able to share that time with her as she enriched our lives with her caring nature, her sensibility, and her love of just running full out.

We’ll miss her toothy grins and snorts, her gleeful howls, the glint in her eye while flying over a-frames, her joyful parades with the slipper or Frisbee, her presence (“the anvil”) on the bed, and her white blaze and clear blue eye staring out the front window.  We’re sure the mailman won’t miss her warning salvos as he attempted to deliver our mail, but we know we will. 

After a somewhat rocky start (including a-frame perching and zoomies), she had a great career in agility, recently competing in Scottsdale making the 2008 USDAA PSJ and PGP finals and taking 2nd in the ASCA Veteran Agility Finals in Las Vegas.  She enjoyed agility, but most of all she enjoyed running with Dave.  Her love of the sport grew through her bond with him, and there are many of us who will miss seeing the two of them take the line to prepare for yet another exhilarating run of daring front crosses, linear accelerator a-frames and now and then even a gratuitous “boof” from Tahoe, especially on rear crosses.

So now she is at rest, joining her canine soulmate, Chase.  She will live on in our memories and our hearts, and of course in her kids.

We love you, T, and thank you for all you’ve given us.

We feel very fortunate to have had the privilege of knowing and loving such a wonderful Aussie.  Not only was "Cosmo" a classic working Australian Shepherd, but most importantly he had a wonderful heart.  "Cosmo" loved to be involved and to just be loved; he liked to be the ambassador at the house greeting all that came. His heart also applied to his work ethic, he would always give his best.   What is wonderful is you see "Cosmo" in his offspring..."Surely" is 100% her fathers' image, and "Chaps" has his father's heart, so we will get to see "Cosmo" in another form for many years to come.
 
We will never forget "Cosmo".

Chase


Born July 7, 1998  - Died November 28, 2007
Loved by Dave Grubel & Erika Maurer

Sadly, we had to say goodbye to Chase.  He went peacefully after a brief but valiant fight against a reaction to his first chemotherapy treatment.
  
  Unwanted by his original owners, we were extremely lucky to find him when he was 13 months old.  He was the “first” for us in so many ways – first dog of our adult lives, first Aussie, first agility dog, and so much more.  He had more character and soul than most people and had a great presence about him (with or without the barking soundtrack).  He was comforting, forgiving, pushy, patient, good natured and always ready for action.  He loved to learn patterns that meant fun was about to happen, and would scream or wag his nub with excitement at the sight of us going to the leash rack, putting on shoes, or driving up to a field with agility equipment. 
  
  While our hearts feel empty , we know that he has made us better people by having shared the past 9 years with us.  In that time he introduced us to so many friends across the country, opened the door to new experiences, taught us about competition, and most of all how to have fun.  In short he was a wonderful companion and teacher. 
  
  He leaves us with many great memories, not *all* of which involve barking.  Here are a few:
  --He was so gentle and trusted that he was the only dog that Tahoe would allow into the whelping box to greet her puppies. 
  --When Dave was traveling every week on business, Chase became a well-known visitor to the Albuquerque airport, sailing through security (pre 9/11) and energetically greeting Dave at the gate. 
  --He would bark so loudly during agility class that the instructor would almost always say, “just put a toy in his mouth!” – after which he would prove that he could bark almost as loudly with a toy in his mouth as without. 
  --He loved to be groomed so much that one time when he saw me pull out the grooming box he jumped up on top of the covered barbecue thinking that it was the grooming table. 
  --Earning the nickname “Sir Barks-a-lot”, he would always bark loudly on the start line, letting Dave know that it was time to scramble for the camcorder to record the run (because we never knew what would happen but it was usually entertaining).
  
  Rest well, sweet Mister.   We know that you’re now happily barking, chasing squirrels and getting someone to throw the Frisbee for you at the Bridge.
