    (The photo toward the bottom of page with faded edges is of Bonnie, a Border-Aussie mix. She is why this site exists. She was the motivator who got me involved in the sport and love of herding. Although she has left behind two sad "parents," she has also left behind her sheep, which her successors Kate, recently passed, with Tam, Christian, and Corrie to take care of.)
