CH Merrymoon Ebonwald I'm a Q.T., STDs, CGC
Pluperfect-Merrymoon Prince x Am/Can CH Merrymoon Noblestar My Girl

born: October 1, 2007
color: brown brindle and white
owned exclusively by Garrett Ramsay
bred by Barb Hoffman

Ell came to me from my mentor Barb Hoffman of Merrymoon Cardigans in Ontario. I had waited a few years for a sable bitch and finally just said that, regardless of color, I wanted a nice bitch to show and start my own line with. Ell has since earned her Championship title (
Ell finished her CH title with a 5 point major over a large entry of bitches), produced a fabulous litter out of BISS GCH C-Myste Baledwr Free To Disagree (Pilot) (including a GCH champion, a CH working on his GCH and two other major pointed pups), and a very consistent litter with GCH Shadowalk Higgins (minor pointed pups and a UKC Champion already) . While at herding camp she earned one leg for her STDc (started trial dog - cattle) and her STDs title (started trial dog - cattle) with ASCA.. Ell has the drive and biddability of working both sheep and cattle and is my go-to girl on the farm when needed animals moved.

Ell retired in 2012 to Colorado and now is joined by her daughter Denley. She is behind most of my dogs today and I really appreciate all she taught me. If ever there was a quirky, fun, smart, sassy opinionated girl, this would be her! 

Ell winning 2 points above by going BOW and BOS from the puppy class.
