CH MACH4 Estrella Theres A Breeze AllAround HT, NF, BN, RI, CGCA, TKI, MV - "Brie"
Having been involved in dog sports for the last fifteen years, I have seen what can happen when a breed splits into "show" lines and "working" lines. When I decided I was ready for another dog, I knew I wanted a dog that could excel both in the show ring AND at various performance events. Jenny Scheytt (Estrella Bearded Collies) was the answer. She had bred her sweet girl, Zoe, to a handsome agility dog, Miller, and I knew I had to get one of those puppies. I've always loved brown Beardies, and there was a sweet spunky brown girl that stole my heart.
Brie is one of the happiest, frendliest and most talented dogs I've ever met. She is my first "show" dog and together we quickly finished her conformation championship. But she's not just a pretty face. Before she retired she earned four Master of Agility Championship (MACH4) titles as well as titles in herding, Rally, Obedience, and more, culminating in the highest level of versatility awarded by the Bearded Collie Club of America - the Master of Versatility title! Now that she is retired, she is a therapy dog spreading joy to everyone she meets in the various hospitals, schools, nursing homes, rehab facilities, etc. that we visit when we have free time. She is such a sweet loving girl and I love her to pieces.

What an amazing girl she is!!! We were able to get a family photo of most of the AllAround and Estrella Beardies that were at the show. We also took a great photo of her and her littermates. I can't believe they're 10 years old already. The rest of the week, Brie was on vacation!
June 24, 2018: MASTER OF VERSATILITY!!! I took all of the dogs to a Rally & Obedience competition and they all did great! Brie earned two titles - Beginner Novice Obedience (BN) and Rally Intermediate (RI). With these two titles she has earned the Master of Versatility title - the highest award for versatility offered by the Bearded Collie Club of America. Less than 20 Bearded Collies have earned this title and I am so thrilled that Brie can be counted amongst that elite group. This is my second dog that has earned this title and it means the world to me. This is what my breeding program strives for. I am so thrilled that I was able to earn this prestigious award with my foundation bitch. I love this girl so much!

She ran beautifully in her first big national competition, running clean in four of her five runs with only one fault the whole weekend. I'm so proud of her!

I truly believe Beardies can excel in both the show and performance rings, and this award confirmed that. I'm very proud of her.
July 2, 2014: Brie had a second litter with seven beautiful puppies. Brie was bred to a handsome boy named Jack who is an extremely versatile Beardie, exceling in conformation, agility and especially herding. These puppies should be wonderful working Beardies.
