We did not plan to keep a pup from Sages litter (repeat cross of Bart X Skye) but on long road trip it was decided to keep Sage here at Sliding S. She was just too special to go to just any home. When Sage met Andrea, I had Andrea work her on stock. Both Andrea and I knew right off it was a great match. It still pleases me to see this team work both in the arena and out in public. I could not be more proud as a breeder than to see what she has become.


I'm very proud of Sage and what a great dog she has turned out to be as a family pet, working stockdog and a service dog.

Sage is so smart. When I'm holding my camera, Sage knows a "pose" is what I'm hoping for.
