Lad is a 9-year old Border Collie. According to Tracy, she and Lad are inseparable and he has taught her a lot. He is a great team player and always tries hard to please. His expressions remind Tracy of a cartoon character.
Tracy is from Sunderland in Ontario, Canada, where she has about 30 North Country Cheviots that she uses for training. Tracy notes that every time she trials with her dogs, she learns something and that sheepdog work is “the most challenging thing” she has ever done. She celebrates wins and losses and learns from the challenge. She describes the sheepdog community as a “fantastic family to be a part of.” Tracy has worked over 25 years in I.T. as a Solution Architect, helping companies install Oral JD Edwards Enterprise One Software.
