Devon went to the bridge in January 2015. 14 years was not nearly enough time with this incredible dog.
The Little Border Collie in the Big City!
Devon is truly a Border Collie that can do it all. In the breed ring,
she is a group and Best in Specialty Show winning girl who can stand up to the boys.
Devon completed her breed Championship in just seven shows, undefeated in the bitch classes
and just two days before her 8 month birthday. Along the way, she picked up a BOB from the puppy classes
over a special and a Puppy Group 1. Movement is Devon's hallmark. She has a correct ground covering gait with
minimum lift of feet, is super clean coming and going and keeps a rock-solid topline on the move.
She was Best of Opposite at the BCSA National in 2002 and won Awards of Merit at the
BCSA's 2003 National Specialty and the specialty which followed the next day.
After producing an awesome litter for us in 2004, Devon returned to the ring for more group placements and
an AOM at KTBCC's 2005 specialty. Later that year, Devon won Best of Breed at the Border Collie Society of America's
2005 specialty show and finished 2005 as the #1 border collie bitch in the USA (breed points) and also the top producing
border collie bitch in the USA.
Devon won all of this owner-handled.
Devon's puppies have surpassed our wildest dreams. From her only two litters,
12 puppies are conformation champions with more gaining their points.
16 pups have performance titles in obedience, agility, rally and herding.
7 Agility Champions including a member of FCI and EO World Teams and
the first Dual Grand Champion (herding and conformation) in breed history.
For her kids' accomplishments, Devon earned BCSA's Register of Merit Excellence.
In 2008, at 8 years of age, Devon made an appearance at the 2008 Border Collie National Specialty Show and
won an Award of Merit, Best Opposite in Veterans Sweeps and first place in the Brood Bitch class.
But that's not all.
Devon won Best In Specialty Show at the 2009 Border Collie Specialty at nine years of age.
At the BC National the previous day, she again won first place in the Brood Bitch class.
An amazing combination of beauty and brains, Devon has won blue rosettes in
Conformation, Agility and Obedience and also earned her PT in July 2006.
She is a talented sheepdog who taught me a lot about herding and work ethic.

winning four first placements and two second placements.
She also has a leg toward her OAJ.
