Linden Brita HSA's, RN -(pictured left) is currently working towards her CD. Brita is the littermate to U-Ch. Linden Acadia Stacked Deck, HSds, HTAD1s, HRD1s, CD (almost CDX- pictured right). Their mom, MACH3 Acadia Color of Passion, HSsd, was leased to Sherry Lee (Linden shelties) to have a litter of puppies while Mike and I moved from Arizona to Pennsylvania. I am so pleased that Sherry thought enough of Molly to lease her. Molly produced 3 puppies for Sherry- Show Low, Brita, and a male that was sold to a pet home. Once Mike and I were somewhat settled, Molly came home and produced a second litter of only 2 puppies sired by Payson (Ch. Acadia's Bright Idea, RA, NA, NAJ) which included MACH, NATCH, ADCH Acadia's Candidate, HSs and a lovely girl, Sadie, who was sold to a pet home.
As you can see, Molly herself did enough herding to acquire a herding Started title on both sheep and ducks, and each of her children that went to competition homes also competed in herding enough to acquire the herding started title- and more in Show Low's case. While the father of Show Low and Brita is Sherry Lee's Duel Champion (being both a herding champion and a conformation champion), DC. Linden Danbie The Blacksmith, NA, VCX, Kaibab (Acadia's Candidate) was sired by my Payson.
Following Molly's litter at Acadia, she went to her new permanent home with Pam and Jessica Hetrick. There she was given the opportunity to compete in agility and continue her herding. Under the guidance of Pam, Molly has earned the MACH title 3 times over, and is so close to a MACH4 that I am really tempted just to write her name that way already.
Molly had a lot to offer, and although she only produced a total of 5 puppies, 3 of them have had very successful careers and 1 of them (Show Low) continues to contribute to the success of Acadia. Show Low is the father of Belle (Acadia's Sweet Necessity, HT, RN) who is the mother of Rincon (Acadia's Sweet Home Arizona)- the young male I am currently training in herding. This past summer Belle was leased to Peggy Crawford (Peggin Shelties) and produced a nice litter for her, thus increasing Molly's contribution to other kennels across the country.
