meG, 4th born puppy in the 2014 Gem x Taff litter, had her name chosen years before! Luckily, this country gal's name suits her perfectly.
meG is resembling both her Great Grandmother, Pat and her Grandmother, Tap both in her mannerisms and her her style on sheep. Like Tap, she was easy to train and was running in Pro-novice before her 2nd birthday; placing in her first Open trial at age 2. She loves everything about trialing - travel, camper life and new fields and experiences.
meG also runs in agility; although finding time to do both sports is proving to be more of a challenge as more and more sheepdog trials become accessible. Currently she is running in Senior in UKI, and made podium at her first Cup in 3 events (Biathlon, Games and Speedstakes). She also earned her Masters Series byes (for US Open) several times over in 2018 and qualified for the Canadian Open in 2018 (although we did not attend).
