Happy Birthday Tess.

You came into our lives and brought us JOY

We began herding so many years ago....


Together we climbed to the top.

You proved yourself to be a top Open dog.


And took care of me along the way.

You worked hard at home. In rain, mud, major floods and heat...nothing stopped you. Your heart never quit. You were true to your heritage.

You showed those who didn't believe. And those who believed.

2001 6th Place Nursery Nationals (Scott Glen)
Qualified for Open Finals several times, ran once and placed.

Earned her ABCA papers on ROM (Registered on Merit)

Your pups had proved themselves on and off the trial field

They have been to the USBCHA Sheepdog and Cattle dog Nursery Finals.


Fearless and willing like you have done. Your legacy lives on.


You made it look easy.

Your courage never wavered.


You changed as needed for the job. Tough rams, ewes and lambs, large flocks, lambs, cattle...you did it all. And did it well.

And that it was never too late to take new challenges on...and not to be afraid



Today you are TEN YEARS OLD and still the love of our lives.




HAPPY BIRTHDAY



DELTABLUEZ TESS.

Happy Birthday Tess! You and your pups do great work. I wanna be like you and learn to herd so I could be a cow dog someday. But Mommy is having trouble finding someone close enough to give me lessons, so for now I will have to be happy as a service dog! You're lucky your person can train you. I hope you have a happy birthday and lots of years of herding ahead!

Sniffs and wags,
Molly
