I needed another male like I needed a hole in my head but there was no way I was going to pass up Coda.  As sweet as his sister is, Coda is a dare devil.  He leaps out of his crate into my arms.  He is fearless and just full of joy.  His front is stellar and is an exquisite mover too - basically he was too nice to let go so here he is (all I need now here is a black tri male and I will have the Aussie rainbow.

Saying that, his pedigree is something that can be used by many breeder.  When we were looking for males to breed to Grace (with the help of some of the finest breeders in the breed) We had settled on trying to find a son of Fib, CH ThreePines B'gosh of Bayshore and then stumbled onto Reuland who is by Fib's littermate and whose dam is an incredible producer in her own right and a littemate to Legacy's Power player.

Breeding this stellar pedigree to a 20 time Best in Show winning bitch made sense on paper as well as in person - Coda is everything I hoped for and more.

How Coda Got His Name


As much time as we spent on pedigrees, I spent equal on names LOL.  I started thinking of a male name that fit into Amazing Grace.  So I started with classic music and then I thought about power and timeless and that pushed me towards rock and I started thinking of a powerful song that exemplifies rock and it hit me Bohemian Rhapsody.  A powerful song that can never be overshadowed or copied.  I feel theonly merle son of Grace needs to be a standout and needed a standout name.
