Meet Robby.  In my opinion (and I know I'm biased), he is THE most handsome, comical, heart tugging sweetheart, and the most bestest snuggler in the whole world.

Way back when I first started competing in obedience, I had the pleasure of watching some very awesome dogs.  My most favorites to watch were the dogs bred on the Heelalong kennel lines.  Many times, I thought that the day would come when I would have a dog out of those lines.  Jump ahead to 2001.  I was in need of another competition dog, and my good friend, Debbie Nauman, from Hurricane, WV was going to breed her Heelalong girl, Nike, to a male out of Heelalong lines, Trep, owned by Mary Kline (OffOn Border Collies).  I wanted a boy.  Lo and behold, God made my choice simple; there was one male out of a litter of five.  Debbie chose the kennel name of "Watchme".  I had already decided that my next boy would be called Robby.  Since I like to use song titles as registered names, and The Eagles are one of my favorite groups, I chose their song "Take It To The Limit" for his registered name.    

From the start, I noticed that Robby was turning into a nicely put together, handsome Little Man (my nickname for him).  I entertained thoughts of doing conformation with him, if for nothing else, just to be able to get a 6 month old puppy into the ring, chuck food at him, and have people touch him, with the purpose of getting him ready for obedience (i.e., the novice stand for exam).  I tried showing him myself, but my nerves got the best of me, and I wasn't having fun.  People told me that he was nice enough to be shown in conformation, so I had a handler, Louise Ritter, of Darlington, PA (724.462.0205), show him for me.  I did the training, and most times, the grooming, and handed Robby to Louise for his conformation ring appearances.  On November 9, 2002, at the tender age of 16 months, Robby finished his AKC breed championship, after having won three 4-point majors, and 3 single points.  This was Debbie's first litter, her first home-bred breed champion, Louise's first herding group breed champion, and my first breed champion. 

Robby is happy to do whatever it is that's on the schedule for the day.  Anything I can dream of is just a smashing idea as far as he's concerned.  He's as happy doing obedience as he is running agility, or playing, or just snuggling.  I don't have to try to make things fun for him; he thinks that anything we do together is great.  His temperament is absolutely wonderful.  He is comfortable with himself around people and other dogs, and doesn't try to dominate, but, neither is he a submissive belly-up kind of dog.  He is very playful, and forward when it comes to making friends...human or canine.  If he discovers that another dog just doesn't want to be friends, he minds his own business, and goes on to the next possible candidate.

Robby is currently working in AKC and UKC obedience, and AKC agility (measures 20" at the withers).  He has 5 OTCH points with a first place in Utility B, has multiple High In Trials, and High Combined awards.  Robby is CERF'd clear, OFA Good, and Optigen tested normal for CEA/CH/CL.  Copies of health certificates are available upon request.  He is available for stud to approved bitches.
