'Pirahna' Ch Meadowbriar Aussie Sheila TD CA



Sheila came to our family as a bit of a surprise...

My Son became attached to her when she was staying with us from                       and she just never left...

She is an adorable, sweet natured girl who loves her food, the outdoors and cuddles on the couch!

She's done her duty in the Show Ring gaining her 'Aust Ch' (Australian Champion)

but the only aspect of it she enjoyed was being with us... so she now just tags along for the ride.

Sheila discovered Lure Coursing just prior to her 1st birthday and has loved it ever since going manic at the sight of a football oval and the sound of a lawnmower engine combined (yes thats right, they can't mow a football oval with Sheila around without her flipping out)

In 2019 we introduced Sheila to Tracking although we were at the end of the season she gained her 'Track 1 & 2' just prior to the summer and went on to gain her Tracking Dog title just prior to her retiring to move back with my Son after the lockdowns of 2021.

Although she will be sorely missed, we wish her and her Niece the very best and we are sure we will see them often in the years to come.

my winter dog sports!

in the Show Ring...

On 28th September 'Pirahna' entered the ring for the last time.

The Melbourne Royal 2018 was to be her final show before she goes off to live with her 'Daddy' and our son, Corey

            She couldn't have done us more proud!

Ch Meadowbriar Aussie Sheila strutted her stuff with the best of them and from an entry of 11 girls she proved herself under esteemed judge Jeff Horswell (Uk) and left the ring with Junior Bitch and Reserve Bitch Challenge!

We hope that she will come for an odd day out into the ring with us from time to time, but for now we wish her and her Dad happy adventures.....

Our little 'Pirahna' finally got to prove herself when she turned 1yr old and was finally allowed to join her Longbourn Kennel mates on the lure Course!

True to form and living upto all the promise she had yapped at us in her eagerness to 'Get Out There' over the months she had be waiting she burst out of our hands and shot round the course with a speed and agility many Greyhounds would be envious of!

and after her first 2 meets she came away with her 'Junior Courser' title!

Lure Coursing...

This year has seen Sheila become our 'Little Pocket Rocket' as she's run her heart out gaining her 'CA' (Coursing Ability) title on 23.06.2019

She is a regular winner of the 'Highest Scoring Field Spaniel' ribbon showing Macbeth that sometimes pure brawn isn't everything!

This is a sport she truely loves and we love watching her excel...
