This year, the annual Australian Shepherd Club of America Inc Nationals will be in Oregon, specifically, in Albany, quite literally in our front yard. Our last Nationals was in 2003, in Wisconsin, with Ho Dog. So it's been awhile.
We couldn't not go; thus, Rosie and Cricket are entered in the Started Trial Dog classes in sheep, cattle and ducks on Thursday and Friday, September 15th and 16th, and possibly also the Colorado Australian Shepherd Association's pre-trial on Monday the 12th. Sybil is entered in Altered Conformation, in Bred By Exhibitor, on Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th at the pre-shows, and then on Wednesday for the Nationals.
Admission is FREE, but please leave your own dogs at home. We will have a popup somewhere near the two stock pavilions, with a big sign; feel free to join us, bring a chair and some beverages (it'll probably be hot).
