Heather was my 1st Aussie.  I actually got her because I couldn't find a Newfie that I liked and I really wanted a puppy.  Needless to say, she got me hooked.  She was the first dog I took to a "real" breed show, my 1st agility dog and my 1st CDX.  We did a little bit of herding, but I didn't have enough time or facilities for it back then.  She was always happy to give everything a try and she absolutely worshipped Casey.  There were days when I think she thought she was a small newf.  She did her last agility run at the age of 10.  Not old for an Aussie, but she was having issues with cataracts and as we were running I realized she was using me to find the jumps.  In typical Heather fashion she still ran her heart out and won the class beating dogs a lot younger than she was.  Even though she was going blind she never let it stop her.  Her happy presence is very much missed.
