In Memory
Action Action
Border Collie, Female
Born: April 2003
Deceased: March 2014
Owner: Brittany Chase

We called her “The Princess” and she was every bit treated like one. Action was a super sweet dog that absolutely adored Brittany and would do anything for her. Not only did she run for a Junior handler but they both learned how to play flyball together as she was Brittany’s first flyball dog. She was the start dog on Positive Pups A for years before the two clubs combined and ran awesome for us. One of the sweetest dogs to ever play flyball is no longer with us and it will be hard to not have her in the crating area this summer just chillin out with us in between races.


Alamo
Alamo
Border Collie, Male
Born: January 2000
Deceased: June 2013
Owner: Aaron Robbins

The best way to describe Alamo was a power house. He was a big boy with tons of power and was absolutely solid when it came to playing flyball. He loved the game and would play for anybody willing to step up and take the challenge of running him. He is father to Tetris, Drama and Ghetto. He was also Orbit's Litter mate.


Alibi
Alibi
Border Collie, Female
Born: March 2000
Deceased: February 2014
Owner: Ron Gosciminski

Freak of nature is about the best way to describe Alibi. She ran on our A team for years and during her prime was one of the fastest, if not the fastest, Border Collies running. Her resume is very impressive and she has run on many world record teams. Her puppies (Motive, Pressure, Denial and Witness) have done a great job of carrying on what she started and her impact from those breedings will bennefit the flyball world for many years to come. She was a one in a million dog and will be greatly missed. She was inducted into the NAFA Hall of Fame in 2013.


Blazer
Blazer
Border Collie, Male
Born: December 1995
Deceased: February 1010
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Blazer was from the very first Radar litter. Although his career was way too short due to an unfortunate accident, in his short time he certainly put his stamp on flyball forever. He, along with Radar and Shayla, was apart of the very first team to break 16 seconds as well as run world records, win Great Outdoor Games, Purina Incredible Dog Challenges and NAFA Championships. We will always remember him for his fun loving attitude and incredible display of heart, speed and style very much like his Father Radar. He most certainly was the definition of following in your Fathers footsteps, he was awesome.


Carve
Carve
Whippet, Male
Born: October 2006
Deceased: 2008
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Although he had just started racing at the time of his accident, he was showing great promise and looked to be following the same path as his litter mate Icon.


Drama
Drama
Mix, Female
Born: December 2003
Deceased: October 2016
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Litter mate to Ghetto. A very powerful dog that loved to race. She did a great job teaching new members how to handle. She was a very interesting puppy and would not run unless she was head to head with the other teams dog. She would stop and wait for the other dog to catch up.


Fever
Fever
Border Collie, Male
Born: January 2001
Deceased: April 2015
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Fever ran on every one of our teams during his career and stayed very consistent right to the end. He also filled the very important role as a training dog to teach all the pups how to pass and do head to head. He was a very fun loving dog that was up for anything. He was out last Radar puppy.


Iggy
Iggy
Corgi, Female
Born: July 1987
Deceased: September 2001
Owner: Christine Swan

Iggy was the first Cardigan Welsh Corgi in North America to receive a flyball championship. Iggy was also titled in obedience and agility. She was Christine's first dog and is still very much missed.


Jaida
Jaida
Border Collie, Female
Born: February 1999
Deceased: February 2013
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Jaida had to retire from full time racing at an early age due to a medical issue but in her short time she helped us out a ton and was a very valuable dog to many of our teams. Despite her small size, she was very quick and loved the game. She could often be spotted circling/herding all the dogs in between heats. One of the smartest dogs we have ever known and was so forgiving to our mistakes as we were still developing our training methods.


Angela and Macey
Macey
Mix, Female
Born: December 2000
Deceased: September 2009
Owner: Angela Decker

Macey ran on almost every team during her career. You could not miss her in the ring, if it was not her size and how effortless she made it look, then it was her barking and flinging Angela around. She most certainly was one of a kind and we miss her a lot. Rest well Black Dog and take care of the rest of the team once they meet up with you again.


Neut
Neut
Mix, Female
Born: October 1999
Deceased: August 2013
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Neut was one of our most valuable height dogs and ran on all our faster teams. Unfortunately she was injured late in her career and did not get to leave the sport on her own terms. She was trying to convince Kelly she was good to go the rest of her life but the back injury really did slow her down as she got older. Neut was a cool little dog that we all loved to run, her enthusiasm for life was awesome and made her so much fun to be with. We will miss you Little Miss Neuty Pooty, you were a special dog and we will never forget you.


Orbit
Orbit
Border Collie, Female
Born: January 2000
Deceased: March 2013
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Orbit was the anchor dog on our A team for years and ran very consistent and fast times right to the day she retired. One of our Radar puppies and liter mate to Alamo. She was a very easy going dog loved by all. Radar began our breeding program and Orbit carried on from where he left off with some absolutely amazing puppies.


Radar
Radar
Border Collie, Male
Born: May 1995
Deceased: April 2009
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Radar was the face of the team for years and everybody knew who he was. He was a freak of nature and changed the way people thought of the large Border Collie. Before him, it was smaller meant quicker on the feet and faster box turns but he proved them all wrong by showing them that larger meant more power and overall more speed by running consistent 3.7's in a pass, when 3.7 Border Collies were rare. He spend his whole career running in the second position on the A team and helped the team run many world records, win NAFA Championships, 3 Incredible Dog Challenges, 2 Great Outdoor Games and go undefeated for years. Radar was Aaron's first dog and gave him everything he could have ever asked for and then some. He has sired many litters and his pups are all over North America carrying on his legend. There will never be another Radar and he is greatly missed. He was inducted into the NAFA Hall of Fame in 2010.


Sabre
Sabre
Belgian Malinois, Female
Born: April 1993
Deceased: February 2002
Owner: Christine Swan

Sabre put our Multi team on the map during her time and helped us run the world record back in 1999. She made Malinois an essential part of any Multi Breed team. In her honor, we present the Sabre Award to the winner of Multi 1 at our Blast Off tournament, it is the least we could do to honor a dog that special to us. She is missed and will never be replaced.


Sassy
Sassy
Border Collie, Female
Born: October 1992
Deceased: August 1996
Owner: Kelly Robbins

Although her career was short, she was very well known and recognized for her lighting quick box back when they were very rare. She was Kelly's first dog and got her hooked on the sport. To this day, we compare dog's box turns to hers.


Sever
Sever
Mix, Male
Born: April 2003
Deceased: April 2012
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Sever filled in many roles on the team including height dog for the A and Blue but a very sudden kidney disease got the better on him just after he fought it off only a month before. Sever and Hoochie were our first adventure into BorderStaffie's and he did not disappoint. He excelled right from day one and gave us a very valuable one, two punch with our height dogs and almost brought our B team on par with our A team in his early years. We always thought the next puppy height dog would replace him but then he would kick it up another notch and maintain his B team height dog for almost his whole career. The prototypical BS, he was a very easy going dog that loved everyone. He could usually be spotted dancing in his crate while not racing. He has sired some outstanding litters and we are reminded of that every time we watch Hippie run.


Shayla
Shayla
Border/Border, Female
Born: September 1996
Deceased: January 2010
Owner: Kelly Robbins

Shayla was our height dog and ran with Radar on our A team back in the late 90's and early 2000's when we were setting all the world records, being the first to break into the 15's, winning all those Purina Incredible Dog Challenges and Great Outdoor Games and going unbeaten for years. She set the standard for what other height dogs were compared to back then. We will always be so proud of what she accomplished and can not thank her enough for everything she did for us. She was inducted into the NAFA Hall of Fame in 2011.


Sonic
Sonic
Border Collie, Male
Born: November 1994
Deceased: August 2008
Owner: Sherry Kingsnorth

Sonic was our very reliable and steady start dog on our Red team for most of his career. Sonic and Sherry had mastered the start and had numerous perfect starts. He is missed and I do not think we will ever have another start team like those two again.


Storm
Storm
Border Collie, Female
Born: May 1997
Deceased: August 2012
Owner: Kelly Robbins-Walt

Storm contributed more to the early history of this team then any dog that ran during her time, including Radar and Shayla. Why was she the most valuable dog on the team for years? She was our training dog for all the pups. She was as rock solid and reliable as they come. Never the fastest Border Collie, but she loved to play and taught all the new members how to handle. I think every member of the team had run Storm at one point in time. We have tried for years to replace her as our main training dog and are finally convinced there will never be another Storm who could take ANYTHING you put her against and not care. Stormy, you were worth a million bucks to our team and we can not thank you enough.


Sweeper
Sweeper
Border/Border, Male
Born: September 1996
Deceased: March 2010
Owner: Aaron Robbins

Sweeper's flyball career was limited due to the fact that he excelled at agility while in his prime and that became his main focus with flyball as his side project. Aaron and Sweeper were invited to represent Canada at the 2004 World Championships in Spain and finished 3rd overall in the world. He truly was one of a kind and there will never be another Sweeper.com.
