KJ is our newest Border Collie and our newest Grand Champion, the second ranked AKC Border Collie in the state of Arkansas. He is the son of our other male Border Collie, GCH Detania Kelsale Keppie. His mom is Cupcake ( Shorelands Breakin' the Rules). The offspring of a Grand Champion dog and a Champion bitch from outstanding kennels (Shoreland and Detania). He has done very well in Conformation. He earned his Grand Champion title at just over two years old. We anticipate an invitation to the AKC/Eukanuba National Dog Show in Orlando in December 2013. Wayne and KJ attended a one week, Jerry Rowe Herding Camp at the Twin Creek Farm, Osborne, KS in October, 2012. Wayne will be practicing herding skills with sheep and ducks at the Kep Doggie Dude Ranch and hopes to win some herding titles with KJ.
