In Gaelic a 'Bree' is a 'great disturbance'. What a fitting name for this incredible little redhead.
She is smart, willing, beautiful and just a bit of a ham! Bree taught me how to use a clicker properly and forgave all my many mistakes. She is an 'honest' dog. She loves to go camping, play agility, show off in a show ring, swim, chase balls, herd sheep and get belly rubs.
Bree is a great companion and has 'disturbed' our lives in many wonderful ways!

Pedigree: Multi CH Patchwork Chandrea's Summer BreezePedigree for Multi CH Patchwork Chandrea's Summer Breeze Miniature Australian Shepherd
This Pedigree is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.
Bree's first litter in 2006, with Multi CH Bluegrass Encore of Heartland produced excellent results including our very first Best In Show Puppy; a Dogs for the Deaf, Hearing Dog in training, and a little boy's best friend.

Bree has several Best of Breed, Winner's Bitch, Best of Winner's and Group placements.
But her most amazing, awesome, incredible and FUN win came in August at
Mini Aussie Nationals in Auburn, Washington.
At the Friday Pre-show Bree took BEST OF BREED - finishing her NAMASCUSA Grand Championship in style!
On Saturday of NAMASCUSA Nationals Bree placed PREMIER FEMALE!
Bree passed her Herding Instinct Test with flying colors!
Thank you Christina Baker of Seven Cedars for handling Bree to her BOB win!
(While I was busy handling Teddy!) :)
Bree's 2nd litter whelped on my birthday, 4/8/08 and is spectacular! The sire was Multi CH Taycin's Radiant Red Rogue. Rogue took Best of Breed 2007 at NAMASCUSA Nationals in Texas. Bree took a BOB 2008, their daughter, Vogue, took BOB Puppy and their son, Cane, took a Best of Opposite Puppy. Way to keep it all in the family! Pictured below left to right are Bree, Cane, Vogue and Rogue. **Update 2010: Vogue and Cane are both NAMASCUSA Champions - and Vogue is a GRAND CHAMPION and BOB Nationals 2010! Cane is titled in Rally and Agility. Congratulations to Sheri with Cane!!
Bree's last litter was by Tundra and whelped December 30th, 2009. The babies went to Pat Hastings for evaluation at 8 weeks of age and one of the babies scored the highest of any puppy Pat has evaluated for me - even higher than Vogue. Here is Chandrea's Outline in Black & White, 'Trace'. Black Bi boy with outstanding structure, excellent friendly personality, blue flecks in his eyes and SMALL!
Watch for this boy in the future - once the puppy fuzz disappears!
