09/10/2018 Update from owner:
This pup is amazing. Ive had/have some good ones. There is always a weakness I wish wasnt there. This dog has none. She would burst her heart for me if I asked. I found myself needing to sort through the flock tonight. She held 100 head for me. Effortlessly. Allowed me to work. Shes developing this calm, cool, hard authority. Few ewes stepped out to push. Her body never moved. She reached out with her head and snapped. Ewes stepped back.
Another one of our dogs has gone overseas! Beloka Rafaela was dropped off at Jetpets on Jan 3 and after three flights and many hours by car she has finally arrived at her new home close to New York, in the US. Her owner has a farm and competes in sheep dog trials. We hope she settles in quickly and gets adjusted to the cold climate, it is freezing there at the moment. It is great to keep in touch through emails and Facebook to see how she is going! We wish her and her owner all the best, and that they may bring each other lots of happiness 🙂
