WTCH, HC, HTCH  Kenelley's Easy's Choice, HX, HXA s,c, HXB s, HTD III s,d, HRD-III s, PATD s, HTADIII s
June 30, 1997 - August 25,2011

Choice started his herding at nine weeks old on a carefully managed introduction to his duties as a working dog.

At six months old he entered his first herding trial and found out about cattle, he loved them. It is hard to tell which he liked best ducks, sheep or cattle. His ASCA Working Trial Championship was finished at fourteen months old. 

We took a month off from ASCA  to earn his AKC Herding Advanced title, the "HX" at 1 year old. I brought him back onto the AKC courses after a year away to earn the AKC H.Ch at the age of 2 1/2.

At nineteen months old he earned his AHBA HTD-III with two high in trials scored 98 and 91 (100 points possible). He now  has completed the requirements for his AHBA herding championship the HTCH, before his third birthday.

 AHBA added a new title in 2007 so at 10 years old I brought him back onto the trial scene. He earned his HTAD IIIs title with 2 High In Trials with scores of 97.5 and 95.5.

 August 25,2011 he happily loaded into the back seat of our truck on the way to the Long Beach herding class (where he joined my family) and silently passed on along the way.
