Betsy, Clay's foundation dog, was born on 3/07/05. She stood 21" and weighed 47 pounds. Her pedigree boasts some of the top cow lines in the country and her puppies are proven performers. Betsy was quick, cowy, smart, and biddable. She had a lot of forward push on stock, great balance, tireless work ethic, and a strong nose bite. Her sire, Bill Renihan's "Czar," won the Crystal Rose Cow Dog trial in 2007 -- the only dog with a perfect score in this 100-dog, two-day competition. Betsy is the mother of M.T. Anderson's Rossi, Jef Blake's Klepto, Justine Davenport's Summit, Jessica Patterson's Trix, Stacy Winkler's Groove, Francisca McDonald's Tessa and Boomer, Tara LaBelle's Jet and many other exceptional dogs. Betsy's hips were re-certified OFA "Good" as a seven year old. She was CEA-Carrier. She passed away from cancer just a few months short of her twelfth birthday. Words cannot express how much we loved this dog.
