Reese "Thornapple Seduction" was our first Australian Shepherd. We brought her from the United States in February 2011, she is born on August 10th 2007. Her breeders are Amy Garrison, Ellen Brandenburg and Coleen Zartman, their breeding is named Thornapple. Reese had taken part in few shows before she came to Iceland and you can see pictures from them and here growing up here.
Reese adjusted well here in Iceland and played a big role in our family her whole life with us as she was the queen of the house. She took part in her first show in June 2011 and with good results. She won her group and was 2nd best bitch of breed, with cc. At the November show same year she won her first BOB, with CC and CACIB.
2012 was a puppy year for our Reese and she had a total of 19 puppies in 2 litters. So she took time off from shows after that until autumn 2013. She got her third CC in February 2014 and became an Icelandic Champion. In August 2015 she became 8 years old and took part in the September show as a veteran for her first time. She did great at that show became 2nd best bitch after her daughter, BOB veteran and was selected top 6 BIS veteran. Great start for her as a veteran :)
Reese passed away in August 2019 and we still miss her every day. She was one of a kind and we will always remember her as the queen she was <3
