Apple Acres Yes It's True     "Trudy"

RIP Sweet Trudy

Trudy was our foundation, the girl that started "Chelson Shelties".   She proved to be a wonderful girl for me, producing an American Champion, three Canadian Champions and an American major pointed daughter.   Her son, Can. Ch. Chelson's Northern Star is now a ROMC! 

Trudy lived here with me and whelped three litters for me.   When it was time for her to "retire", Trudy had the great fortune to live her retirement years with a most wonderful couple, who adored Trudy, as she adored them.  To them, I will always be grateful.

              Can. Ch. Chelson Aiming To Please  (US Major) 

Amy is from Trudy's (above) first litter.   She achieved her Canadian Championship in two weekends.   And she earned a US Major before being retired.    Amy is my heartdog, and my constant companion and will remain here with me as the official greeter and dog extraordinaire.

Misty was a wonderful addition to Chelson Shelties.   Acquired from Cathy Dupree of Mindalyn Shelties, Misty produced my first American Champion, Am.Can.Ch. Chelson Iona Work of Art.   Misty spent her retirement years with a wonderful couple who adored her.  Misty recently earned her Therapy Dog title.  Way to go Misty and Barbara.
