Tess was what I joking call an impulse purchase. Her breeder was camping next to us at a trial, and making the offhand comment I would love a pup (they were mostly all tri colored and I’m a sucker for tri’s). Her breeder popped over to tell us she was again available. She came home with us mid October 2016.
She has proven to be a heck of a pup. At 15 weeks old, just to see if she had any interest in sheep, I placed her in the round pen. With a little help from her friend, Jimmy, off she went herding those Scottish Blackface.
Tess is clear/ normal on CEA, TNS, DM, I-GS, MDR1, and NCL.
