Winston – ADCh, 9.7.94 – 2009
Border collie-German Hovawart cross. He was fondly known as “The Woodle”. In barely one year and 10 USDAA trials Winston earned his first ADCh. Winston helped teach many handlers agility as over the years he turned into a lesson dog for out of town students during classes and camps. He was a totally honest and easy, point and shoot dog, rarely going wrong if you headed him in the correct direction, which is why he made such a wonderful lesson dog for Nancy’s students. He retired from agility in 2002 after earning many USDAA titles, and making multiple appearances at National events with Nancy and some of her students as his handler.
Toast – ADCh 1994- 2010
