V ChX DC WTCh Nahrof Final Impression was imported by Claire Hamilton from the world-famous Nahrof Border Collie Kennels in New South Wales, Australia.  In addition to being a multiple group placer, he has proven herding ability, including an ASCA Working Trial Championship (WTCh).  Porter won the High Scoring Champion Of Record on the "B" Course at the 2004 BCSA National Specialty, and also won High In Trial out of the Advanced class at an ASCA trial this past November. He finished his AKC Herding Excellent title (HXAs) with a High In Trial on January 1, 2005 and his Herding Championship with another High In Trial on May 13, 2006!

Porter has Champion and performance-titled progeny and is a BCSA "Noteworthy Sire".  He is well-boned and has a strong, masculine head.  His ancestors and relatives include some of the finest dogs in Australia, and his pedigree should blend well with Darcy's.

Porter's eyes are clear, and he has OFA Good Hips and OFA Normal elbows.

ChX Tainsh New Dawn At BonniDune HSAs STDs is a combination of top Australian, British, New Zealand, and American show lines bred back to the ultimate working line of Dual International Supreme Champion Spot (ISDS # 161819). “Darcy” finished her Championship with 18 points, 4 majors, and 1 Best of Breed.  She earned her ASCA Started Sheep title (STDs) her first weekend trialing, and won two 2nd places doing it.  She earned her AKC Herding Started title (HSAs) in two consecutive weekends with a 2nd place and two 3rd places! 

Darcy's sire is one of the top dogs in the United States.  Many kennels talk about versatility, but Duncan defines it.  AKC reserves the title "Dual Champion" for dogs with both a breed championship and a herding championship.  Duncan is an AKC Dual Champion and has his CDX plus one leg toward his Utility title in obedience.  His show record includes winning an Award of Merit at the 1999 National Specialty, an Award of Excellence at the 2001 AKC Eukanuba Invitational Classic, Best of Breed at the Louisville Kennel Club/KTBCC supported entry show in 2002, and he has multiple Group Placements.  He has also won multiple High In Trials in herding and earned multiple Front & Finish First & Foremost Honorable Mentions in obedience. 

Darcy’s maternal grandmother is the only Border Collie to ever win Reserve Best in Show at Crufts. Puppies from Darcy’s first litter are just now starting to come out in the breed ring.  Her daughter Myst finished her championship with three 4-point majors. Her daughter Paige won High In Trial at her very first herding trial, and won an Award of Merit at the 2005 BCCofGLA Regional Specialty.  All Darcy's puppies have demonstrated the desire to work – whether it’s sheepherding, agility, obedience, or tracking. 

Darcy has been eye tested clear. CEA Genotype NORMAL - Optigen # 05-2011. She has OFA Good hips, OFA Normal elbows, patellae & thyroid.
