About Shock

I want to thank Lara Forchuk of Fox Hat Farms for sending Shock to us. It took us a long time to find that special male. He shows all of the promise of his pedigree and works like a dream. He is out of LazySBarW Bess ABC150141 and Chuck ABC57817. He will continue his American Herding Breed Association and USBCHA trials this coming summer.  So keep an eye out for the newest member of Eclipse Border Collies. He is our foundation stud dog and an asset to us.  He is working towards HTCH points in AHBA.

You came into my life when I saw you at an AHBA trial giving your breeder/handler and later my trainer a hard time. You came up to me and snuggled me and I fell in love with you. You have taught me so much, protected me from Rams, taught me how to read sheep, threw ducks in the air and played catch with them, taught me how to pen sheep, loved Rally, really didn't get agility, but you gave me your all. You were my best friend since 2006 and I will always miss you during lambing when you moved the momma's so nicely. I will miss your loving growls when I would love on you and your grumpy old man/cowboy grumbles when I hugged you. You were diagnosed with cancer in January 2017 and given about 6 months to live. You made it a 13 months, because you were stubborn enough and I think you realized I needed you here a little while longer. I held you in my arms while you took your last breathe. You gave me your dedication, loyalty, love, partnership in the sheep and was always there to give me a lovable growl. Run free Shock - Thank you for everything and for passing on your stock sense to your daughter and granddaughter. I will forever miss you.
