Annie is handled by Bev Lambert from Andover, Conn.  Annie was imported as a pup from the UK.   Amanda Milliken, also a handler her, imported out of the litter and gave Bev a chance to have one.  The litter has been almost universally successful dogs.  Annie, now 4, already has quite a few big trial wins and is in her first year of open.  Annie ran last year here at Soldier Hollow as young dog.  Beverly says Annie is one of the most naturally talented dogs she has ever run as well as a real team player eager to understand what Beverly want and do it if she can.  Beverly is a handler with 30 years of experience and two Soldier Hollow Gold Medals among a number of other wins and championships.  Beverly describes sheepdog trials as the place where the dogs are “judged one against the other by their work, not by their looks.”
