Ceili (pronounced Kay-lee) won three majors on her way to her Championship, going Winners Bitch at the SSCNC Specialty in 2003 to finish.  She is the dam of our boy, GCh MACH Sagebrush Little Big Man, TD HSAs OF MXS MJS JHD VCX. In 2013, at the age of 13, she was Select Bitch at the Centennial Shetland Sheepdog Club of Greater Denver specialty.

Ceili was a willing agility dog, but she really never saw the need for speed.  Nonetheless she earned her MX and MXJ, and enjoyed every minute of it.

Ceili's agility runs in Fresno, 2003 and 2005.  These are from old VHS tapes..


Ceili was one of the dogs who demonstrated Variable Surface Tracking at a 2005 tracking seminar.  She earned her tracking dog title (TD) at the test held by the Sacramento Dog Training Club on February 25, 2007.

In the spring of 2015, with the CSSC Specialties approaching, I asked Ceili if she'd like to show in the Veterans Class.  She said, "Yes, please," so I entered her.  She had a grand time, showed her little heart out, and was Best Veteran and Select Bitch at both shows, at age 14 years, 8 months.
