Brad’s dam Julianna, standing 14 1/2 inches, is AM Gr Ch Opulence and Bling, owned by Kathy Ryan (USA). Juliana is the beautiful Grand Dam of my Ava (Lochwind Freeze Frame of PaRay Imp USA). Julianna was this year’s recipient of the OFA and ASSA 2017 Champion Of Health Award! She is the first female Sheltie in the USA to win this award!! “The annual award is sponsored by the OFA and is intended to recognize a dog, and their breeder, that has had significant accomplishments in the ring, in the field, in performance events, as a producer, or as a working dog, AND has the full complement of health testing appropriate for its breed.” It is wonderful when these attributes are celebrated, honoured and recognized when one is aiming to breed beautiful, healthy dogs.
With his first litters showing in 2016, Brad is represented by fourteen Champions at this time.
Brad’s very beautiful tri coloured sister Ch Sunaire Hearsay Mainstay (Noelle) was placed at the ASSA 2014 at 8 months of age. Finishing with two Specialty wins at only ten months of age. Including Best Opposite Sex, over Specials.
Ava’s dam PaRay Allure (Stella), in January 2017 was WB at her first show in Palm Springs. The following show 29th January WB. BOW. BOB. Over top specials. Then on to a group second. She only requires a few points to finish after her new litter by Ch Chisterling Last Call

July 2017 Ava finished her South African Championship for Wylwind.
We could not be happier, what a great start to the year.
Looks like (Click on her name) Ava is very happy with her new life and enjoying the beach.
On 16th January 2018, Ava produced a lovely litter by Wylwind Chasing Rainbows.
5 pups. 1 Blue merle bitch. 3 tri bitches and a tri dog.
On 23rd September 2017 Ava’s lovely sable litter brother PaRay Tailor Made for Harradei (Imp USA) won his first Best in Group in Australia.
