In Memory

June 22nd, 2019 by

CH Carmylie Autumn Frost (above) Our first champion from our second litter, “Smudge” began his show career with a bang by winning a large 6 – 9 month AOAC puppy class at the 2006 ASSA National Specialty Show in VA Beach. He finished with a four point major under breeder Judge Anne Foreman at the Central Ohio SSA Specialty Show.  He was always a happy boy! He was co-bred and co-owned with Jean Simmonds.

Carmylie Halo in Sunlight, ptd (Above left & right) (Can. Ch Laureate Landslide x Ch Carmylie Autumn Storm) Halo was a delightful little imp willing to try almost anything!  She was Best in Sweeps her first time in the conformation ring. She also tried her paw at agility and herding, passing her Herding Instinct Test with flying colors.  Halo ended her showing years in the Juniors ring!  She was co-owned with Jessica Omick. Her nickname was “Halo who will never have a halo.” Thank you to Jean Simmonds, Carmylie Shelties, for sharing this fun, fun, fun little girl!

Carmylie Autumn Splendor (Above left and center) A littermate to Halo, Ciara was a lovely girl who produced several beautiful litters for us including our first Champion “Smudge” (above).  She was a very sweet girl and a wonderful Mom!

Triumph Keepsake Treasure (above right) Katie was a darling girl with a spectacular temperament. She never experienced a moment of stress in her life and lived a very long life as a result! Katie was co-owned with Nadine Iroff, Triumph Shelties.

GCh Carmylie Miss Quinn (CH Dury Voe Scottsdale x CH Carmylie Brandina Wild Child) In the case of Miss Quinn, “persistence paid off.” I basically pestered Jean Simmonds until she acquiesced and allowed me to share this darling puppy.  Quinn finished her championship in June 2012 with limited showing, earning a four point specialty major, a five point specialty major and a five point specialty major reserve along the way.  She was third in the open sable class at the 2012 ASSA National Specialty.   She then breezed to her Grand Championship in less than a month! She is our family clown and my adorable shadow!
