Ahoy all ye mateys! This breeding was the first Montage home-raised litter since Rhian's own, carryin' my breeding program forward with my performance line down from great-grandma Torchy. Versace be a handsome devil and Rhian was known far n' wide fer her piratical attitude before her passing. She took no prisoners! Together they made a fine lot o' pirates. A Super Puppy Program for performance activities gave these Pirates a bold, brave start and they all chose a life o' plunderin,' pillagin' and adventurin.'

Rum Montage Pirate's Treasure AX, AXJ, NF, Tracking Certified "Rum"  This be the puppy that stayed at Montage in New York City. Some pirates want pieces of eight but others say rum be the real treasure. My Rummy is a treasure! She be outgoing, affectionate and super smart like her mama. The piratey part of her nature comes through as thievery. She steals from people's pockets and she be takin' all the toys fer her own. She can frequently be found dragging her human through the fields while tracking. If there's hidden booty Rum will find it! She has also dragged me into the agility ring, something I resisted for many years. She has a lovely, fluid jumping style and an enthusiastic approach to every agility game. Even though she is the first agility dog for me, we're having lots of success in spite of not being able to attend any classes, thanks to Rummy's athleticism and fast learning skills. She has an impressive collection of blue ribbons, as well as a trophy from the ABTC 2015 National Specialty for winning 1st place in Excellent Jumpers in a large class of competitors! She has now moved up to Masters and already has a 1st place win in Master Jumpers for her first 14 speed points! Most recently, Rum was Tracking Certified on October 24, 2015, under Judge Debbie Maheu. Very proud of my pirate girl! She is now taking time off for motherhood.
CH Montage Pirate's Code NAJ "Parlez"  The Pirate Code of the Brethren includes the right to declare Parlez, in which the person who declares it shall be taken to the enemy captain for negotiations and shall remain unharmed by the crew until such time. "Parlez" has been a much loved member of Rusty Pearson's pirate agility crew in Castle Rock CO. She be fast like the wind in yer sails and a counter percher, too! Besides her lively attitude, she's a real beauty and moves like a dream. She finished her breed championship at 21 months old with 3 majors, including two 5 pointers, shown by Darcy Ferrentino and Rusty. Parlez has a USDAA Starters 26" Jumpers Q and her AKC Jumpers Novice title. When Rusty became seriously ill in 2016, Parlez remained with him and is providing much comfort and love. She's a very sweet dog. Parlez
Savvy Montage Pirate's Life for Me NAJ, NA "Savvy"  Savvy was Rusty Pearson's up and coming "power agility" pirate. After Rusty's illness, Savvy went to live with Rusty's dear friends Scott and Eileen Allen in the Chicago area. The Allens are fellow agility addicts and have had Savvy's brother Cap'n from puppyhood. So far, the boys seem to still like each other, as they did when they were baby pirates, and it looks like Savvy is staying. At their first trial together, Savvy and Scott took away 3 blue ribbons, 4 Q's and an NA title! Rusty must be so happy to know his Savvy man is well loved and still having fun playing the agility game. Savvy be feisty and brash but he's a snuggler. He'll steal your ship from under yer nose. Then he'll steal yer heart! Aaaaargh! Just get out of his way.
Montage the Flying Dutchman OA, NAJ "Dutch"  Dutch used to be known as "Plumpy the Purple Pirate" but its a fact that nobody thinks yer fierce with a name like Plumpy so now he be called Dutch after the fearsome Pirate Ghost Ship of the Carribean. Dutch captured the hearts of Cathy and Joe Parisi in Smithtown NY. He be stable, enthusiastic and really sweet (for a fearsome Pirate, that is)! (He's also fluffy.) Dutch is a big, athletic youngster. He is in training for competition obedience and competes in agility. He has his AKC Open Standard title, two Open Jumpers legs, and all agility Qs were earned with Blues. He takes after his mama not just in athletic ability and speed but also in his vocal talents. He screeches at the top of his lungs on the pause table just the way Rhian does! Can you hear me now? Currently, Dutch's person stopped competing in order to focus on her rapidly growing family and spend more time upstate in a beautiful country home. Dutch be a very happy pirate! Dutch
Cap'n Montage Hoist the Colors XF, OAJ, OA, NFP "Cap'n"  The dreaded skull and crossbones flag known as "the colors" strikes terror into the hearts of sailors (and Border Collies) everywhere. Cap'n joined the pirate agility crew of Scott and Eileen Allen in Monee IL. Cap'n be proving himself to the rest o' the crew by breaking out of the brig and stealing socks and other plunder. He's a really pretty pirate so we won't be surprised if he makes all he'll make all the lady Tervs swoon. He made his agility debut in March 2013, starting with some wild action in tunnelers fast and novice jumpers, earned Qs, blues and had to walk the plank a few times, too. Cap'n was the first Pirate to title in the litter. He is now trialing at Excellent level.
Montage High Seas Marauder AG, SJ, SN "Rogue"  The 18th century was notorious for marauding pirates on the high seas intercepting Spanish galleons and taking the loot back to their pirate lairs in the Caribbean. "Rogue" be living up to his name - a rambunctious, pillaging, piratey pup with lots of charm! Johnny Depp has nothing on him. Rogue joined the pirate menagerie o' Tim White and Rachel Blackmer in NC, which includes .. wait for it ... a Parrot that says AAAAAARGH! Rogue be ready for anything, especially agility in which he has USDAA Advanced Gamblers, Starters Jumper and Starters Snooker titles, and in AKC Novice 2 Jumpers and 2 Standard legs. He has some lovely ribbons piling up in his booty chest including some of those coveted blues. Rogue
Timber Montage Shiver Me Timbers "Timber"  When the cannon balls and big waves hit a pirate ship, the timbers may shiver! Timber be a big, handsome, affectionate Pirate with excellent structure and breed type. He joined the crew o' Darlene Pineda, Steve Carleton and family in Elizabeth City, NC. Timber be Darlene's first performance dog and he be ready for many adventures. He can do anything Darlene has a mind to try, from agility to sheep herding. There might also be some ocean adventures ahead fer Timber since Steve be a fine, seafarin' man. Aye, aye mateys!
