Our lifelong dedication to the Shetland Sheepdog began with the purchase of Charleen Acres Percival CD (”Percy”) from Gord and Verna Meyers of Charleen Acres Shelties, of Milton, Ontario in 1979. Purchased as a companion, it soon became evident that Percy was as smart as a whip; we enrolled in obedience classes and then began going to obedience trials, in the hopes of obtaining our C.D. (Companion Dog title).  Although he would not be considered a “typey” dog by today’s standards, Percy was a son of Am.Can.Ch. Gray Dawn Reveille Of Sea Isle ROMC, and was tightly line bred on the blood lines of one of the most respected breeders of that era; Mary Van Waggenen of Sea Isle Shelties. It was while attending obedience trials held in conjunction with all breed conformation shows that I was “bitten by the bug”, and decided that I would like to breed Shelties. After doing much research, and talking to the top breeders of the time, I purchased my foundation bitch Ch. Silverdrift’s Fancy Dress ROMC; an Am.Ch. Sunnybrook’s Heritage Spirit ROM/ROMC daughter from Gillian & Paul Brutzki (Silverdrift) who was co-bred by Joan and Terry Pavey of Whitegates Shelties.  I am forever indebted to the Paveys for the many hours they spent teaching me how to properly groom and care for a Sheltie, and how to go about developing a winning and producing bloodline.                                                Most of our nine ROMC’s and many of our 90 champions trace back to our beloved “Fancy”.

This website is dedicated to Joan Pavey of the reknown Whitegates Shelties  with thanks for the many patient hours she spent mentoring me; and helping me on my way... we would not be where we are today without her.
