Cory’s baby daughter Saffron is now living with Pam Lukenbill in Louisville where she hopes to compete in multiple venues.  She started things off with a bang with several nice puppy match wins, including a Best Puppy in Match and an all breed Best Puppy in UKC show.  She made her “grown up”  UKC show debut at 8 months old and finished her UKC CH in 3 shows, with a BOB over a GR CH and a Group 2 and finished her UKC-Grand CH at 2 years of age.  She is taking time out to grow up a little bit before hitting the AKC ring.  Just after her second birthday she earned her TD (tracking dog) title, followed quickly by her PT herding title on ducks.  She also has a UKC rally title and is just starting to show in AKC and NADAC agility.  Saffron LOVES the world and the world loves her.  She is a darling, outgoing little girl with a sweet face, sound body and nice movement.  She is a dead ringer for her dad (so much so that it always takes me off guard when I see her!) in a smaller, more feminine package.  We are so proud of her and look forward to her career. Saffron is from the Cory X Zoe litter bred by Tamara Jones of Maranatha shelties.

Saffron’s first introduction to ducks at about 5 1/2 mos of age!

Above left is the start of Saffron’s passing track, and above right she and Jimbo find the glove!  Below are her title pix with the judges and handler Jimbo Jenkins.  She has to steal her obligatory kiss!

Above are some shots of Saffron working ducks shortly before she completed her AKC PT herding title.  Below are her new title shots with handler Nancy Runyon.  Of course she had to kiss the judge again!  (Perhaps her true calling is as game show host!).

Above are shots of Saffron completing her first UKC rally title with Sara Jenkins.  This time I don’t think she got to kiss the judge, but she did take a dive either after what the photographer threw, or maybe she thought she could kiss her!  When I see her in these shots she looks SO like Cory, and when I saw her at a tracking test she worked just like him there as well.  Everything from her facial expression, to how she holds her head, when she licks her lips, and how she holds up a paw is like her daddy.  Below is the whole family– left to right Dad Cory, brother Robbie, Mom Zoe, and Saffron.


Saffron has been bred to “Jacob”, a CH “Ricky” son and is confirmed pregnant :-).  Puppies expected early May.  Jacob is a deep red sable with dark shading.  He’s a smaller boy with solid structure and temperament.  Jacob competes with his owner in rally and is just starting in CPE agility.  These puppies will be linebred on “Ricky”, CH Belmar Joker’s Wild, who has produced wonderful structure, temperament, and drive;  in limited use he has 6 breed CH, many pointed kids, a herding CH, and from his last litter before he died several doing well in agility (hopefully he will have a MACH kid soon!).  We hope to have sound, typey puppies who want to do it all.  This litter is co-bred by Tamera Jones (Robbie and Saffron’s breeder) and myself, Becky Golatzki. Thanks to Saffron’s owner Pam Lukenbill for letting us have her for this breeding!
