By the time my mother took ill, my sister had remarried. She had alwasy hoped to have a Trina puppy for my neice. So, with my assistance, Trina was bred to Denver (Chanlijen Destiny at Belaire). There were three puppies in the litter. The bigger boy, who I had named Derrick, went to my sister and neice. He is happy and healthy at 12 years of age. The only girl was named Cara in honor of my girl (who we refer to as "Little Cara", since she's just a tiny thing), and is also doing very well with her "mom", a good friend of my parents.

As a puppy, D.J. (named for "Denver Jr") had great promise as a show prospect. He resembled his father in so many ways. D.J. had a great body, with fabulous movement. He was shown, and did fairly well, but an "old fashioned" head (broader backskull) kept him from attaining a Championship. D.J. lived with his handler/co-owner, and became his full-time companion.

Victor, his handler, and I attended a weekend herding clinic with D.J. At first, he had no interest in the stock, but from watching, finally "turned on". By the second day, he was ready and raring go to! That day, he passed the Herding Instinct Certificate test run by IAHBA.

Sadly, D.J. was lost to cancer at 11 years of age.
