We used Jack and Echo's offspring with each other and got the great program we have today!
***Echo- #10 MASCA CONFORMATION 2011, #8 in 2012; #2 Top MASCA HERDING Dog 2016 and 2017; Most Versatile Aussie 2nd place 2016 and 2017; Extreme Aussie Games #3 2016; #4 2017*** Echo is sired by Wigglebutt Light Up My Life (Lucas) from Wigglebutt Aussies of Indiana and out of our Hall of Fame X Dam IABCA CH Heartland's Whispering Brooke. We loved the litter out of Brooke and Lucas so we decided to keep 2 of them in our breeding program. Echo lives with us at 74 Ranch and her full brother Cooper lives in Colorado- finally we produced some to keep! Echo truly is the full package - she structure tested excellent and is an awesome dog with SUPER MOVEMENT, athletic abilities, great personality and gorgeous looks! She has a super shoulder angle and front end, great strong legs and hocks, nice head, well balanced! She truly is the joy of my life, we work super well together and she will do anything to please me! She has at least 23 titles.
Echo won 6 Best of Breed Puppy, 5 Best of Opposite puppy, and 8 Best in Show puppy by 17 weeks old. As an adult she won (at least) 6 Winner's Bitch, 3 Best of Winners, 8 Best of Breed, 1 Best in Group, 2 Best in Show, 1 Reserve Best in Show. She continued on to win with limited showing: Best of Opposite ARBA, Brace with her daughter, Chatter; Brood Bitch, Underdog award, Super Underdog award, Top performance dog WOWMASC, Superdog, Wowdog awards, Hotdawg awards, several movement classes, High in Levels, High in Trials, CGC, etc. She is a NAMASCUSA and MASCA Champion, ICKC Jr Champion and IABCA Nat/Int Puppy Ch. Judges say she has 'flawless movement'. At MASCA Nationals 2016 - she got MVA 2nd place, EAG 3rd place, several HIL, HIT in Rally, Best Brace team with Candor and Premier Female.
She loves agility and frisbee and is a very focused girl! We have kept several of her babies in our program/partner homes to see how they grow up. At her first NADAC agility trial she got 3 qualifying scores out of 4 runs! She got her Open NADAC agility in 3 days/6 runs!
Oct 2016: Echo got High In Trial Level 2 Herding on Ducks under Judge Anita Ramsey! That was fun! She also was a major part of 74 Ranch winning Breeder's Showcase, Generations and Brace at the year-end award. She also was 2nd in the WOWMASC Top Performance dog of the year. She went on to be the #2 MASCA Herding Dog in 2016!!!
Nationals 2017: Echo got 5 High In Trials and 2nd pace MVA (Most Versatile Aussie) and got 4th in EAG (Extreme Aussie Games). She got HIT (High in Trial) in Acrobatics, Agility-Jumpers, Agility-Tunnelers, Farm & Ranch and Rally-Obedience. She also won Brace with her granddaughter, Candor.
In mid September 2017 Echo finished her level 3 sheep herding title and level 1 Farm and Ranch title. She got 1 leg of her level 3 Duck title, but missed the A course by 1 point... This did qualify her, however, for the V-4+ Versatility Award (it's the highest you can get in MASCA and she's the first/only one to get it)!
Echo was a great producer for us: Savvy, champion also got her CGC, novice disc dog title and advanced rally title; Chatter - champion and several herding titles; Sway - champion and novice rally title along with some gorgeous pups that we have placed in pet and/or co-own/partner homes to watch in the future. Her grandbabies are proving to be as good or better than her babies!!!
Echo got her MASCA Hall of Fame Dam January 2020. We lost her in Sept 2018, she will be forever missed by us here at 74 Ranch!
