'Storm' was a central player in our joint kennel. Heart dog for Kate and foundation sire for Rozate Kennels. He was trained and titled in herding by Karen in Qld and later in Vic with both Kate and Karen. A very special guy he was one of the 'big girls blouses' being a sweet male who made an excellent alpha. He was a great alarm dog, baby and puppy sitter and duck dog. 'Storm' will be missed but we enjoy seeing his qualities shining through his puppies and grandpuppies. Storm is a Silver ROM.

'Hiker' was a very special boy. He was pick male from the repeat mating that produced ASCA Ch HatCreeks No Deposit No Return. He came out to Australia as a older pup and immediately made his mark in the show ring. His outstanding head and type always impressed judges familiar with the breed in the US. Hiker continued this right to the end being awarded RDCC and Veteran in Show at the Aussie Specialty November 2007. He is a Gold ROM in the ASCV Record of Merit Program.

'Mac' arrived in early 2012 as a join project with Kerry Webb of Ngalla Kennels. He was a gorgeous, smaller boy with tremendous breedtype and an amazingly sweet temperament. Sadly before he could make any real impact on the breed here in Australia he succumbed to cancer. We thank Heather Gould of Watermark Aussies for sending this special fellow all this way and are grateful to even have this short a time with such a sweet dog. 'Mac' had two litters for Rozate Kennels and has semen stored for the future.

'Onyx' was the other half of the Princess litter. She was the tomboy to 'Kulani's princess and was a lovely moving girl who missed out a bit on the head. She proved to be an excellent brood bitch and was sadly lost to a snake bite when in whelp in 2007. She belonged to Rosie (the other half of Rozate) and is sadly missed.
She lives on in the offspring of Waif, Fleet, Gucci etc
