is a handsome tri dog out of my very first sheltie litter. Thanks to
the generosity of Heather Walton, Kieran belongs solely to me.
Kieran is a joy to live with. He is my primary alert dog. Kieran is my heart dog and has achieved more than I ever
thought possible. He is the first of many things: firstborn boy out of my sheltie litter, first UKC GRCH, first AM CH, first PT (beat
his mother by about 4 dogs), first agility titles, and first VCX. In addition to all of that, he's first in my heart.
Kieran finished his Championship by going WD and BOW under Judge Robert R. Frost
on the TarHeel Circuit here at home for a 3 point major on Saturday, March 27, 2010.
Kieran came home and decided to try his paw at herding in 2011. We got his PT in style. He is a very calm, quiet
worker and truly enjoys spending time with the sheep and ducks. We are looking forward to trying his
paw at getting his started title on ducks.
In August of 2012, I decided that it might be possible to get his VCX on him, so we began training for
agility. Kieran achieved his OJP in early May 2013 and that title gave him his VCX. We got our OJP in only 9 months
with only stick in the ground weave poles and very few run throughs. To say I'm thankful to have such a wonderful boy
is an understatement. After we got our OJP, we decided to try standard. With having only been on contact obstacles a
total of 4 times, we trialed in standard. We got 2 legs with first places and then Kieran got scared on the teeter, jumped
off, and then wouldn't do it the following day. More work before our next trials, but Kieran and I are working really well as a team and we will continue to do agility
for as long as he wants.
