Denley


Ebonwald's Dearly Beloved CGC
GCH Shadowalk Higgins x CH Merrymoon Ebonwald I'm a Q.T. STDs CGC

Born: February 17, 2012
Color: Brindle and White
Breeder: Garrett Ramsay
retired and living in Colorado with The Bailey's and her mom Ell.

Denley was a 'sleeper pup' in the litter of 11. She neither stood out, nor fell to the back of the brindle brigade at any time. When I really started staring at bitches to grow on and show myself, she became a front runner based on many things. 

Denley was Best of Opposite Sex in Sweepstakes at the North Star Herding Group Club Specialty in St Paul, MN in January 2013.

She earned her first and second Qualifying legs at the 2013 Tuscon CWCCA National Specialty with Missy Bigelow. They earned a 4th place finish the second day. She also earned her Canine Good Citizen on that Tuesday with myself. She is SUPER smart and willing, and that is evident on her 5 week herding camp training she did out in Grant's Pass, Oregon. Unfortunately due to my moving and job changes we never got her third RN leg and regret this often.

We decided to retire Denley from shows as we didn't think she was competitive enough. I believe she had 9 points at that time. Denley was bred one time to Oscar, and had our L litter, which we kept Laurel from. She was the only girl that survived, and was worth the risk of keeping. Denley had a fantastic personality and when the time came for her to retire, the wonderful family who has her mother Ell, wanted her as well. So that is where she lives now, patrolling the yard for squirrels and keeping an eye on her people. We adore and miss Denner D and look forward to seeing her again someday.
