Overboard Australian Shepherds

We lost Sheila on September 10, 2010. She is reunited with Gridley, romping in the fields.
She wrote the following poem in the early '80's. 
Sheila's Burial Poem "Bones"

Overboard Aussies is a small hobby kennel dedicated to the ideal of the versatile Aussie. With Sheila gone I continue to try to be half the trainer she was. We train and compete in conformation, obedience, agility, and on stock. All our dogs train and compete in multiple disciplines. We currently have five dogs in residence—yikes! We have tried to keep our pack size small so that we can give each of our dogs the time and attention they need to stay challenged and happy. However, with three dogs now semi-retired and the pack continuing to age I finally found and brought home a charming puppy.
I will try to continue what Sheila started.

Pete, a retired submarine commander, spends much of his time training in agility or on stock.

Overboard's first Aussie, Barney--Idaho Falls, Idaho, 1966
