Without Jade, there would be no Special or Vicky, or the other great pups form that cross; and without Jade, I wouldn’t have gotten to make a close friend of Annie Otto who took over Jade when I bought her back to Tucker Creek around age three.
Annie and Jade dove right in at her Red Angus cattle operation and came for training at the farm. She quickly earned her WTCH and her Canadian Herding Advanced titles on sheep cattle and ducks. A gorgeous creature she also earned her Canadian and ASCA Championships.
She definitely passed on her hot temper and her “get even” with that cow attitude. A sister to my first finals and Supreme Versatility dog Flash and also littermate to ASTI – Jack’s finals dog, Jade was a great versatile working dog whose preference was cattle.
