"#$%#$&!'()$*+! '+!,-.#*!/-..#(0!! !!

Oh do I have a story, Barney was lost at a show in September 2013 Yes, Barney the number 2 Cattle Dog in the Country was lost at a show just 2 months ago! I had strained my calf muscle at a show just the weekend prior so I sent Barney to his only show ever without me. That Sunday morning I received a call saying Barney lost, that is what I thought I heard but really it was BARNEY IS LOST and you need to get her now! Needless to say I jumped in my car and drove 1 1/2 hours to the show. When I got there people were searching the area in golf carts and on foot with their dogs. No Barney anywhere. A heart sick feeling came over me and I was just devastated. With the help of many very special people we began the search that would encompass 4 long, long days. It began with someone who was leaving the show early calling saying she had seen a Cattle Dog crossing the highway and heading up the exit to town.


I searched the area of heavy woods and swampy areas around the exit close to the sighting in the pouring rain all day while my friends formed teams of people to help in so many ways. So the fast and furious search was underway. First we set up a Find Barney Facebook page which ended up having 43,000 friends, made hundreds of flyers and had very special people from the dog community standing in front of Walmart, Fred Meyers and any place that the people of the area shopped. We handed out hundreds of flyers and asked that anyone who is on Facebook to take a picture of the flyer and post it. We posted the big, bright LOST DOG posters that we have all seen hanging on telephone poles and major streets. It was a full fledge search. We went to all the schools the district offices, Metro busses, Fire stations, Police and Sherriff stations, animal control, and all the vets and shelters in the area and handed out Barney’s flyers. Barney’s picture was plastered all over the area. Oh my gosh day 1 was over and no Barney. The sadness was almost more that I could take, but I just kept saying I am going to find you, where are you. Again another day of pouring rain and day 2 of searching and calling for Barney, and talking to anyone we would see. We hired a dog tracker that only tracked dogs and cats; he came out and tracked Barney’s scent all over the area where Barney was first lost, but no Barney. I called my husband at home and had him load up our 8 dogs in our dog truck and bring them to where Barney was lost in hopes Barney would hear or smell them and find us. Friends sent me a Psychic to help me keep positive and communicate with Barney. The overwhelming concern from everyone who new Barney was so helpful, anything that needed to be done there was


always someone willing to help. We had people taking phone calls, searching the areas, posting on the web, posting flyers, and everything that you could think of. The day was over and darkness was here again. Such a feeling of being lost and such deep feeling sadness would come over me as I thought of Barney being out there somewhere. Each night we would sleep out in the last area he was spotted with the van opened just hoping he would find us and jump in. Day 3 began with calls of sightings of Barney in the area. It was a day of scrambling and searching. The callers would give us an area where they saw Barney and we would post it on Facebook and everyone would head there to do a search of the area. This was not just me; there were always so many people that just showed up to help. They would see that Barney was still missing from his Facebook page. Some I knew and some I did not! We just kept posting all the sightings and kept everyone in the area connected. We got a local map and started to mark the Barney sightings and started to notice a pattern. He was staying in a circular area. So we just started to focus on that area. Cattle dog people came and helped search, people that had just seen it on the Find Barney Facebook page just kept coming to help. It was amazing! If we needed anything someone was there. Another day came and went and it got dark again and that devastating feeling of where is he, is he ok came over me again, I cried tears of sadness, it seemed like my tears would not stop at times. Day 4 came with no sightings or calls for most of the day. I stayed in the area where we all met at the beginning of the day. I called for Barney, I searched for Barney, but that day I mostly cried. My best friend who I had watched be born, raised and trained was gone. I was just not going to accept that! I was going to find Barney!


Then a call….Someone that came home for lunch spotted him in her driveway. It was just behind us. We posted it on Facebook and took off for the address. So many people showed up. Trucks, dog vans, cars, people came that I didn’t even know, everyone show up in the neighborhood. There were dogs barking and people yelling BARNEY, BARNEY. Earlier we had called the dog tracker again, he also showed up in the neighborhood with his dog to search for Barney. His tracking dog confirmed Barney was in the area. The search was on again. Hope again! That is how it went, hope would come and then night would fall and I would get that total feeling of helplessness. I has been 4 days……. As my son got ready to go home, just about dark, he told me he was going to go slowly down to the end of the road where we were all standing and then head home. I told him thank you and he slowly drove away. As he got close to the end of the road I hear him start yelling IT’S BARNEY, IT’S BARNEY! Oh my gosh my heart stopped, I jumped up and told everyone to stop and be quiet and close off both ends of the road. I remembered the dog tracker tell me that if I saw Barney to knell down and stay calm. Well my heart was going about a hundred miles an hour and that was hard to do, but I did. They stopped the traffic and I could barely see Barney at the end of the road, I knelt down and called as calmly as I could BARNEY COME, he stopped and looked at me, but remember I was not here when he was lost 4 days ago, so he looked at me like is that really her? Then again I called BARNEY COME he walked forward about 3 steps and stopped. My heart stopped, he had to come. I called one last time BARNEY COME he came running down the middle of the road and jumped right in my lap so hard that he hit me in the face and made my lip bleed. There we were in the middle of the road I was crying; Barney was licking my face, IT’ BARNEY, I FOUND HIM! Finally my


husband called to me get out of the middle of the road these cars want to go. As the cars drove by they cheered. Oh my gosh I have found Barney it was the best feeling in the world that quickly became one of the best days of my life and a blessing I will remember forever.

Hawkeye Catalyst’s Red Tail Hawk d’Ark at 3.5 months old winning BBPIS under well-respected judge Eugene Blake Chuck Lamers - Catalyst Reg’d Kennel - Cavon, ON, Canada


CINDY COOK BlueHill Kennels How long have you been in Dogs? I’ve always had dogs, but I got my first show dog, a chow chow when I was 9 years old in 1982. How long have you had the ACD and what is your background.? I got my first ACD in 1991 for an obedience/agility dog. Never intending on breeding or confirmation showing of my ACD. I was still very involved in the Chow Chow but wanted a sounder dog to compete in obedience and agility. Why did you choose the ACD? It really was not my first choice, the man I was dating (who is now my husband Tim) always wanted and ACD for his horse farm and to travel with during the rodeo circuit. So I got my first ACD as a birthday gift for him.


How did you decide that this breed was for you? Chyenne (my first ACD) was so intelligent and so willing to please I just fell in love with her and the breed. This was quite a change coming from Chows. The Chows are more cat like, and if they didn’t want to do it they didn’t, and if they didn’t want to be bothered they went and laid in the corner, whereas the ACD “just did it” because you asked and was always under your feet regardless of the task at hand. How did you first get involved in the ACD? Since Tim was always on the road as a truck driver through the week, I had “custody” of Chyenne through the week and she traveled with him on the weekend to rodeo’s or worked the horse farm. She was a “way out of control” puppy so I decided at 10 weeks of age we had better get started on basic obedience; I couldn’t believe how quickly she picked up the commands and how much she made me think outside the box. From that point on I was hooked! So I began to research local breeders in the area to learn all I could about the breed. I was very lucky to run into Janet Long of Longacre’s Kennels. She was one of the few local breeders that took the time to get to know me and my background and teach me the good, the bad, and everything in between about the ACD. What do you do with your dogs (i.e. herding, performance, conformation)? Mostly now due to a bad knee I just do confirmation, but in past I’ve done obedience and agility and I am currently playing with herding. (Though it may not be going as well as expected, apparently the dogs are way better at herding than mom is) I have placed some older dogs in homes that currently are therapy dogs for cancer patients, as well as a few competitive Frisbee champions. What titles have your puppy buyers put on your dogs you have bred? Obedience titles, agility/rally titles, confirmation titles and a few Frisbee championship titles. What made your decision to start breeding? After having my ACD for two years and doing an ungodly amount of research I made the decision get out of chows, and start with a breed that wasn’t a genetic nightmare. I realized what an ACD was capable of and wanted to pursue a healthier, sounder breed.


What caused you to pick the particular dog/ bloodlines (S) that you did to start your breeding program? Having the background in pedigrees from years of being in the chow world, I started looking at local bloodlines. I did a few test breeding’s and decided that they were not working for me, they were healthy pups but not what I considered closest to the ACD standard. So I started over in 1998 with several different bloodlines. I found over the years that you may “love” a particular dog or bitch but you need to see what that dog or bitch produces over a few litters to see how the offspring grow up. What dog/bitch to date is your best dog/ bitch produced and why? It’s hard to pin point the best dog or bitch, as they all have qualities that I love but they all have their faults as well. So since I have not produced the “perfect” cattle dog I would have to say the closest I have come is GCh. Bluehill’s Night Light (AKA Star). She is a beautiful bitch with a dead on top line, beautiful feet, movement to die for (even at 9 years old) and a beautiful coat as well as many other wonderful qualities. When deciding on a breeding do you outcross, line breeding, inbreeding, or a combination of all? Over the years I have line bred, I do believe this is a dying art, but any good line breeder also knows that it is important to do an outcross from time to time. Do you breed to outside females and if so what is your criteria? No, I only breed for myself and to my own dogs. Who influenced your breeding choices the most & why? The late Dr. Joanne O’Brien influenced me the most. She was a very well know chow breeder GCh. Bluehill’s Night Light as well as a veterinarian, she taught me the correct structure of a dog, how to condition a dog from the inside out, and how to pick up structure flaws without ever touching a dog.


I was very lucky to work with her through my teenager years and also work with some of the top chow kennels in the county. Dr. O’Brien was also the one that taught me about pedigrees and how to line breed. I just took that knowledge and applied it to the ACD world. What has made the biggest impact on your breeding program to date? The PRCD blood test, in my opinion since we have this test available Bluehill’s Stellar Performance there is no reason to produce another ACD with this horrible disease. What bitch has made the biggest impact on your breeding program to date? Ch. Bluehill’s Great Explosion (AKA Dyna). When I decided to start my breeding program over again, I kept one Stud dog and spayed and place the few bitches that I had. I drove all the way to Canada to pick up Ch. Daylynerun Blue Knoll, these two produced Ch. Bluehill’s Great Explosion, Dyna has produced the bitches and dogs that I am proud of today, whether it be her offspring or her grandbabies, and they all go back to her. Which Dog & Bitch in your breeding program was most successful or that you feel contributed the most to the breed? GCh. Bluehill’s Night Light (Star) is the one that I would have to say I am most proud of, she received an Award of Merit at Westminster, and multiple Breeds when bitches just didn’t win the breed, (always shown as owner/ handler) but most of all she is a wonderful ambassador for the breed. Always willing to show her personality off in and out of the ring, and always willing to give a stranger a nice soft wet kiss on the nose. If I could produce a whole kennel full of Star’s I would consider myself “successful”.


How do you raise your puppies? I will be the first to admit that I am NEUROTIC about my babies. I spent an entire year driving my husband crazy with changes to a whelping pen that I made him build from scratch.

All my babies are raised in the house with Samantha (my daughter) constantly hugging and kissing them. I am the type of person that knows every spec on each pup from the time they are born till the time they leave. I’m the type of person that can sit in a whelping box for hours on end just watching and observing the babies and their moms. What do you feed your puppies? My pups when they are ready to start on solid food around 3 to 3 ½ weeks start out with Pro Plan Performance ground up by a coffee grinder and goats milk (not the powdered, if I can’t get fresh then I used canned). Then when their teeth start to cut through the gums, they get soaked Pro Plan Performance and goats milk, and then of course by the time they are 6 weeks old they are on hard food with cottage cheese or plain yogurt and ready to be completely weaned off mom.


How do you socialize your pups ? Since we live in “Nowhere Ville” I usually have Samantha invite a few of her friends over when the pups are 6 weeks old to come and “have a play date” with the pups. Usually by 6 weeks old I am already scheduling new puppy people to come and pick their pups. So from 6 weeks on the house is very busy with people coming in and out.

How did you come up with your kennel name? Since my first dog was a blue and my husband’s property was nothing but rolling hills I decided that Bluehill would be the name for me. Do you have a distinguishable line? I would hope so, but I guess you would have to make that conclusion on your own. If you were going to rate type, temperament, & soundness in what order of importance what would be the order & why? Soundness will always be my first priority, then temperament as I believe that this is part of the soundness of the animal and then breed type is a “plus”. I believe that if you start with a sound dog body and mind, the rest will come with time and carful breeding.


What do you think are the most serious faults in the breed today? TOPELINES, yes I did put that in caps, I see the most horrible toplines, the ACD is not supposed to look like an old saddle horse nor should they look like a Bedlington Terrier (roach back). If you don’t have a good topline then there is no way that you have a truly sound animal. Size is another BIG issue, these dogs were not meant to be CONDO CATTLE DOGS. A 14-15 inch bitch/dog is unacceptable.

What would say are the biggest genetic faults in our breed today? Deafness, since we don’t have a genetic test for this, it can be heart wrenching. I have produced a few uni pups over the years and do my best to make sure that I don’t reproduce it. I have a dog that I just love to death, but I had a litter of 6 pups and 3 of them were uni’s. So needless to say he is not used in my breeding program any longer and all those pups were sold as pets. Do you consider yourself a mentor to others coming in the breed? I am more than willing to share my experience and thoughts, and not too old nor do I know everything, and I can always learn something new myself, so am I a mentor? I guess to some extent but I feel there are much wiser people in the breed that I would consider mentors. What advice would you give them in starting out on the right road?


Do your research, talk to many, many breeders and don’t buy the first puppy you see.

Describe an average day living with your dogs? With an ACD there is no average day! My day usually starts out with 7 screaming ACD’s wafting to go out, I don’t have runs, I have 3 large paddocks for the dogs, so they are split into groups, then the two house dogs go out and usually chase the cows and the goats, just to remind them they are still boss and this is their house. After that the day is wide open from there, it can consist of show ring training, or bathing a sticky dog that rolled in something, taking a dog down to move the chickens from the chicken house so it can be cleaned, or just a nice quiet day veg’ing out in front of the TV with my pals and doing nothing. The only thing that is consistent at my house is that I have 7 ACD’s that keep me entertained and there is never a dull moment.


What should people who are interested in this breed know before they bring one into their homes? That the dogs are usually smarter than their people. So they have to be smarter than the dog. Is there anything interesting that the breeding community (for your breed) is working on? Not that I am aware of, our National Club doesn’t seem to do anything other than hold a National Specialty every year. It’s a shame but it’s the truth. Do you feel the current AKC/UKC/ANC/FCI/ANKC standard is adequate? No, I believe we should have a height standard, as we seem to be breeding smaller and smaller, I also believe we should have some more clarification on coat color, I’m still running across judges that need education on color especially the reds, they feel that the color is “Not as acceptable” as the blues. A wise man once told me that “A cow doesn’t care what color the dogs is” (Jim Buzzard) so now I use his famous line on judges when they question the color. I also think that we should have a disqualification for missing teeth. I have seen some ACD’s have as many as 7 teeth missing. Any comments that you wish to add: As I get older and take on more responsibilities of Family I don’t do as much breeding/showing that I use too, I would love to see the breeders start taking more responsibility for breeding sounder dogs, in the past 10 years I have seen the breed decline, a responsible breeder not only does the testing, but is honest with their own breeding’s and isn’t ashamed to admit that their animals have faults. If more breeders would stop being kennel blind the breed would be all the more better than it is today in so many ways. If you don’t know, ASK, don’t be ashamed to broaden your knowledge of the breed you claim to love. You may not agree with everything someone says but you can at least come away with one thing you didn’t know or one thing you can use.

He enjoys his fun agility and is an excellent retriever and water dog which may also lead him to some dock diving events! Whiskey is a proven producer, with multiple puppies lined up for the show ring, performance and herding.
