Australian Shepherd of the Mountain West –  This book is about Preserving the History of this Unique Line of Aussie Herding Dogs! This comprehensive collection is a must for all herding enthusiasts! Printed in full color, thishardcover bound 676 page book includes over 1500 photographs, diagrams, and charts, many never before published. The images present a photographic story of how the dogs from the past have influenced the breed as we know it today. Kris compiled Pedigree books for the Australian Shepherds, Bearded Collies, and Australian Cattle Dogs that preserved the records for the future before they were lost. She wrote many informative articles for The Australian Shepherd Annual, supported ASHGI and ASCA, was a board member of ASCA, was active in AKC, and was an AKC Herding Instinct Judge and a member of the North American Dog Agility Council. She put ASCA obedience and agility titles on some of her dogs and received titles in the stock arena. She worked hard to preserve the Wood’s line that was originally out of the Colorado breed by Fletcher Wood. Kris passed away shortly before this book was published, but she knew it was done!
