Esther Ekman's Australian Cattle Dog Legacy Spanning 39 Years


Esther owned and bred many dogs in the course of her life. Some she owned out right, many others she co-owned with her business partner of many years, Amy Berry. Amy and her husband had a dairy in Idaho and it only seemed fitting, since they co-owned only blue cattle dogs at the time, their kennel was named Blueberry. Due to obvious reasons Amy was in charge of the herding aspect of the partnership, however, working together they shared the responsibility of both breeding and showing.

In addition to Amy, Esther also co-owned dogs with others as well. It is not my intent to try and keep up with whom owned what but to show case as many dogs with pictures and pedigrees that Esther owned or co-owned with others including those who were part of her foundation breeding.

I don't know the number of Australian Cattle Dogs that you will end up finding here except to say there are many. If you could see the boxes of pictures that Amy is trying to put together with pedigrees you would see what an overwhelming task this is. Be sure that you come back often to see the dogs that have been added.

Because this area is primarily made up of pictures, which as a group down loads very slowly, only the registered names of the different dogs are listed here. To see their picture and the name of their sire and dam simply click on the name of the dog. Names in red denotes the dog was shown and won the title of champion. This is not to say, however, that dogs with out the title are not as good only that, for some reason, they were not campaigned until they received their championship.
