Noel was our first sheltie. She was a tiny 13" sable
merle and introduced me to the world of shelties. With her patience,
I learned how to train a dog and she got me hooked on dog shows!
Holly introduced us to the world of breed showing and produced our first sheltie
litter. She was a sweet loving little 14" bitch out of Rorralore
and Birch Hollow lines.
Tess was around 7-8 years old when we adopted her from German Shorthair Pointer
Rescue. Even with her difficult start in life, Tess had a super personality and
her tail was always wagging. We had a great time in the obedience ring
with her and she finished her Companion Dog obedience title before we lost her
to cancer. In her three short years with us, she touched everyone she met with
her sweet bubbly personality. She was a special dog who left us too soon.
Dash was the littermate to Joy (Ch. September Recent Rain x
Kashmir Happy Holly-days CD).
Dash was a true gentleman and social butterfly. He will be sorely missed. Dash was owned by my friend,
Eleanor Campbell. Although Eleanor is a successful German Shorthair
Pointer breeder and exhibitor, she decided on adding a sheltie
into her crew of Shorthairs. If you ask Eleanor, she will tell
you that Shorthairs and Shelties go great together! She liked
the shelties so much, she decided to get another and now owns
Presto, another O'Bay sheltie. You can learn more about Eleanor's
Shorthairs on Dunstanburgh Shorthairs And Shelties

Bell is shown here with her owner, Terry Nolan.Bell was the
littermate to Joy and Dash.
This little girl was owned by my sister, Terry Nolan and family.
Bell was owned by my nephew Patrick and my other nephew Sean showed Bell in obedience trials and together
they earned her CD. My sister Terry then took over the training
and finished her CDX and UD. Quite a family achievement! Bell
showed them all how to do it right and finished her UD in a fantastic three
Most of all Bell was a terrific family dog and loved by all who met her.
Drummer was one of Joy's pups (by Am/Can CH. Aylmere Premonition
He was loved and adored by young Lindsey Scappichio.
One day, by chance at an obedience trial, little Lindsey (then
aged 7) saw Drummer at 8 weeks old. Love at first sight, Lindsey
convinced her mother that she NEEDED this puppy!
was quite a character; little in body yet big in personality. He left
this world too young and will be missed dearly by his family. I am so
grateful he had such a good life and was loved by Lindsey.
