As a family, we have decided to breed Canadian Kennel Club registered pure-bred Shelties. The photo is out initial breeding pair. The sable is our male, Pippin and the darker, our female, WIllow. They are really quite wonderful. Pippin seems to be going through a bit of a nervous stage right now. Could really do without that, I must say! WIllow seems to be more dominant, and is not as nervous. Hope that doesn't change as she gets older. If all goes well, we'll have puppies for sale just before Christmas next year!
