Obay Shelties

Striving for the balance of brains and beauty ...

In Loving Memory ...

Noel, Holly and Tess

"Noel" U-UD Golden Dawns Magic Noel UD (1988-2003)

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"  Kashmir Happy Holly-days CD (1991-2005)

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" The Working Girl, CD (19??-1994)

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.

"Dasher" 1992-2008

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

OBay Christmas Bell - Bell 1992-2008O'Bay Christmas Bell UD
"Bell" 1992-2008

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 straight tries!
Most of all Bell was a terrific family dog and loved by all who met her.

OBay Little Drummer Boy - DrummerO'Bay Little Drummer Boy CDX, MX, MXJ
"Drummer" 1996-2007

Drummer was one of Joy's pups (by Am/Can CH. Aylmere Premonition CD,AX,AXJ).

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!

Drummer 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.
