Picture from Beth's adoption profile
This is Beth's father, Zip.
Ray told me about Beth's lineage & gave me permission to share Beth's story. He wrote
"She is primarily from a cattle background. Her grandfather (Zip's father) Nap is the 2001 National Nursery Cattledog Champion and is in the book "Sheepdog Champions of North America". Zip's mother Sue is a hugely successful cattledog trialer (owned by Robin Nuffer here in Idaho. Sue died unexpectedly in April. Sue is where Beth's personality comes from. She carried the nickname "Sweet Sue") and was very good on sheep as well. Zip is now king of a several thousand goat grazing program and lives in Pendleton, OR. I have sent along a picture of him. I trialed him for quite awhile from Nursery through Open. Ivy rides along and works occasionally on a cattle ranch in the Baker City, OR area. Ivy's father was Rusty Child's Brad who was a great worker and competitor."Beth is a bit older than we thought. Her birthday is 12/22/2003 which makes her 6.5 years old. We dont care how old she is, we love her anyway.
