Astra lives in New York with proud owner, veterinarian Dr. Chris Camann. Astra was lovingly trained by Dr. Camann and has earned several titles, including Canine Good Citizen, Companion Dog, Novice Agility Preferred, and Novice Agility Jumpers.
Astra is also working on backpacking titles, conferred by the American Working Collie Association, and open level titles in obedience and agility. But Dr. Camann reports that ever since Astra has discovered agility, she finds competitive obedience rather boring by comparison! Among Astra’s many skills and good manners, she makes sure to put all of her toys away every night before going to bed!
Astra was the second Rainshade Collie, out of a total of four (so far!) to join Dr. Camann’s family. Rainshade Renaissance Wizard (Merlin) was first, in 1992, followed by Rainshade Bien Fait (Munchkin) and more recently, Rainshade Sophie’s Gifted Aviatrix (Amelia).
Astra, like all Rainshade Collies, is certified normal-eyed.
Thank you Dr. Camann for giving our Rainshade Collies such a wonderful, loving home all these years!
