Mina arrived full of herself from Canada shortly after Thanksgiving 2001. She has been entertaining both me and the other dogs alike.  Mina was bred by Linda Poirier of Westpointe Shelties.  She carries the blood of "Eli" (Ch Bonnyville Fairfax Nighthawk ROMC) through both her sire and dam.  Shown above winning her first Canadian Points with her handler Jan Williams. 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mina is now 10 years old and enjoying life as the guard dog - here she is taking a break from her duties.    (Feb 2011)

Mina at the office ...

 

 

"I know I saw her get those treats

 out of this file drawer.  

Now where'd they go?"

 

 

 

 

 

"I get so tired at work, 

Spirit doesn't mind if I use her 

as a pillow, ahhhh .... zzzzzzz...."
