Bet is Border Collie royalty. Formerly owned by Scott and Jenny Glen of Alta-Pete Stockdogs and 1/2 sister to Scott's very famous Donnie. As a young dog though, she showed absolutely no aptitude for herding sheep, so she ended up coming to live with us.
Here Bet has excelled. She helped raise generations of accomplished Siberians, blogged, and keeps me sane. She has traveled to sled dog races in Montana, Oregon, Saskatchewan and Alaska - including riding herd on the whole NorthWapiti crew at the 2014 Iditarod.
As an 8-year-old dog she 'turned on to sheep' - well, actually I think she just wanted to steer me towards some 'retirement' options as I was easing out of racing sled dogs.
I've owned a lot of remarkable, accomplished dogs in my lifetime, but I'd be hard pressed to name one that holds a piece of my heart that compares to the piece Bet owns.
