Thank you Linda Perry Patchwork Farms Miniature
Well, "Believe It Or Not"
has really proved to be the perfect name for our beautiful
black tri male. He was born March 2, 2008 out of Ch
Patchwork' Obadiah + Ch Bluegrass Gemini of Patchwork.
For the 2008 mini-aussie nationals Ripley was 6
months old. We went for the experience. And let us tell you
did it ever happen!!.
Prior to the herding instinct test Ripley had never
worked any type of livestock. I was glad to see that he
really does have herding in his genes. He passed his M HIC
title like a true aussie.
Ripley earned 3 first place ribbons in the Rally
Obedience trial. This gave him the 3 legs needed to earn his
PJC title: Puppy, Junior, Challenged.
Ripley placed 7th in the Aussie Olympics which
requires each dog to compete in 3 different activities over
the 4 days of the trial: herding, agility, rally obedience
To finish off our 2008 season Ripley earned his
CRNMCL title, Canadian Rally Novice Magna Cum Laude.
March 29, 2009 Ripley is now a member of St John's
Pet Therapy Team. He can now join Cally on our weekly to the
2 long term care facilities.
May 24, 2009 Ripley received his Canadian Rally
Obedience Advanced title, Magna Cum Laude, CRAMCL.
November 7th 2009, Ripley completed his CRNT title,
Canadian Rally Novice Team. For Rally team you are partnered
with another dog and handler. Each team must complete half
rally obedience course. For Rally Team Ripley has been
working with his sheltie friend Finn for 3 first place runs,
Way to go BOYS!!.
April 2010, At the young age of 2 Ripley has now
completed his Canadian Rally Excellent title, Cum Laude
CRECL. We can now start working on a bronze title.
August 26th 2010, Ripley's first litter with Cally
produced 4 beautiful babies: 3 boys and 1 girl. You can
check out their daughter Karmas Lil Miss Attitude on the
home page soon. The rest of this beautiful litter are on the
photo album page.
April 2011, I really can't say enough good things about
Ripley. He has spoiled us with his biddability and easy
going nature. Ripley's true love is anything that allows him
to work near me. For fun we decided to complete our Rally
Versatility title. This title tests each dog and handler on
how well the dog can heel and work on both sides of the
handler which was not a problem for this beautiful boy. He
showed his true versatile nature and finished his title
Canadian Rally Versatility CRV in 2trials.
June 2011, The boys did it again!!! We had a blast
working with Finn and his handler Lora. The performance
showed a great deal of enthusiasm and loads of team work.
The newest title Canadian Rally Advanced Team CRAT makes 9
working titles for Ripley at only 3 years old.
April 12th, 2012, Easter weekend Ripley and Ruffian
welcomed 4 beautiful tri babies into the world: 1 red tri
female, 2 red tri males, and 1 black tri male. All pups are
eager for whatever future plans their families have for
agility, flyball, and therapy work!.

in his rally obedience career needing 5 qualifying scores of
190 or higher in Advanced, Excellent, Versatility we
recieved Our Canadian Rally Bronze Title CRB.
