Rhian MACH5, ADCH-Silver, CH Montage Works Like A Charm MXB2, MJS2, MXF, LAA-Silver, TM-Platinum, JCH-Gold, SCH-Gold, SACH-Gold, RCH-Gold, GCH-Silver, RS-E, JS-E, GS-O, HIC, P-BAR "Rhian"  was owned by Rusty Pearson and co-owned by Montage. Rhian is Celtic for magical maiden. She turned out to be everything we hoped for and more. Rhee was an agility force in both USDAA and AKC. In the spring of 2009, she completed her ADCH and her Mfirst ACH, running at consistent speeds that qualified her for the World Team tryouts, as well as the AKC Agility Nationals in both 2009 & 2010. In 2009, she was top-seeded as the #1 Tervuren in the coutry at the Eukanuba Agility Invitational. With 5 out of 5 clean runs including a 1st place in Round 4, she went into the finals as #2 in cumulative scores out of 87 dogs running in 24. Montage Charmers LitterIn spite of a slip and fall which cost precious time she still managed to end in 4th place. At the 2010 AKC Agility National s, she made it all the way to the Challenger Round. She finished her MACH2 at the 2010 ABTC National Specialty with High Combined in Trial. At the 2011 ABTC National, she won High Combined in Trial again! In USDAA, after taking a break for motherhood, on 1/14/12, her first weekend back at 26" and still with "undercarriage" Rhian earned her Lifetime Achievement Award-Bronze and ADCH-Bronze. She was the 5th Tervuren ever to have earned these titles. She completed her MACH3 on Easter in 2012. She also earned her 50th Tournament Q for her Platinum title. And, on June 2, 2012 Rhian squeezed in an AKC dog show and 4 point major to finish her breed CH, handled by Rusty! We have no idea how Rhee ever found time to produce the Montage Speed Litter and the Montage Pirate Litter. But she didn't stop there. In AKC, on 9/15/2013 she completed her MACH4 and not quite a year later on 9/1/14 her MACH5. In USDAA, she earned her 250th Masters Q, 21st Super Q, and completed her ADCH-Silver and Lifetime Achievement Award Silver at age 8. Finally, at age 9, With her RCH-Gold, she moved down from 26" to Performance where she continued to kick but into her 10th year. She was te dam of the Montage Speed Litter and the Montage Pirate of the Carribean Litter, and earned a 4th generation Performance Breeder Achievement Award (P-BAR) for me. It is easy to say this dynamic, beautiful Tervuren accomplished a lot in her lifetime. But, most importantly, she was Rusty's dear companion. She had a huge presence in this world and leaves a strong legacy behind.
Montage Lucky Charm PT "Denali"   was owned by Sharon Nolan in Burlington VT. Denali was very outgoing and friendly to both people and dogs, and was always a credit to his breed. His main love was herding and he began his trialing career at the NESA Trials in 9/09, with back to back HT legs for his title. In 2010, he repeated his performance with back to back PT legs, and is now in training for HS. Just for practice, Sharon entered Denali in Herding Started in a trial over Memorial Day weekend and, to her huge surprise, they came away with a Q and 2nd place! Denali was major pointed in breed in Canada, but was neutered in order to concentrate on performance activities. Denali, aka Squish because he was so cuddly, had a wonderful life with Sharon. He was a very loving, devoted dog and brought Sharon much joy. He passed on at 12 1/2 years and is dearly missed. Denali
Belle Montage Southern Charm "Belle"  lives with Marek Fludzinski in Brooklyn NY, and is co-owned with Montage. While we had hoped to show and breed Belle, frequent seasons were a problem and so she was spayed. Belle is a wonderful companion dog with tons of ball-drive. Like her grandmother Torchy, she loves to swim and water retrieve. She has also enjoyed agility.
Montage Absolutely Charming TD, SPS, TrBA, HIC "Abby"  belonged to Maura Hogan and I loved her, too. Besides being absolutely charming, she was absolutely gorgeous -- sometimes we just sat looking at her! We used to call her the lawn ornament because she liked to stay in one of her special spots outside in the grassy yard, lying down but still watchful with her neck arched, from a place where she could survey the golf course by Maura's home. Abby and Maura had a lot of fun with different activities including agility and herding but what they most enjoyed together was tracking in the fields. Abby earned her TD on Oct. 7, 2012. She was a versatile working dog, enthusiastic and determined. In her senior years, she mastered a new sport called Treibball that resembles a soccer game in which the dog pushes giant rubber balls up and down a field and must get them into a goal. It's exciting and fun and Abby was great at it. She was so joyful, with that big, happy Terv grin on her face, as she pushed those balls around her field. At age 11, she became the 101st dog of any breed to earn the American Treibball Association title of Standard, Beginner A. Abby was still having fun into her 12th year when her passing was quick and unexpected. She left a huge hole in our hearts and will always be loved. Abby
Cody Montage Celtic Charm "Cody"   was owned by Nancy Serednicky in Sunnyvale CA. Cody was a very high focus, high energy, merry boy with a great sense of Terv humor. He was Nancy's constant and devoted companion throughout life's ups and downs, providing great comfort to her. When time permitted, they dabbled in competition obedience and agility. Cody passed away at age 10 from prostate cancer. He is greatly missed.
