HOLTHERS Fighting Spirit of Thunder
Born July 30, 2013
**2016 Skyhoundz World Disc Dog Championships 3rd Place!"
***2015 SKYHOUNDZ WORLD DISC DOG CHAMPIONSHIPS MICRO
DOG FREESTYLE 3 rd PLACE!!!!!!!!!******
Thunder and Remedy had 4 black and white girls, but two died before they were born.
She had her puppies unexpectedly early and therefore we were not present during the birth of the first two.
Unfortunately in the process of her chewing the umbilical cord, she accidentally chewed the front leg of one of the pups(HOPE). Holther Border Collies worked their tails off to save Hopes life. There was a lot of trauma to the leg and a tremendous amount of blood loss but thru Holthers love and compassion and 100 percent never give up on Hope effort they saved HOPES life and I will be forever be indebted to them for this incredible pup.
The third was still born after a long delay after the first two pups, so we decided to c-section the 4th, who also had already passed previously as well.
We are all so sad, but we have a feeling that Hope is going to be
I knew the second Hope was born and I heard what was going on that I wanted HOPE in my life for the rest of her life. We had not planned on getting another pup yet but GOD Sent us this ANGEL.
Hope will always be with her daddy Thunder, and her older brother Te'o.

Hope is loving life and is ready to make friends with anyone she meets. I am allready starting to slow down training with her and will only allow her to compete on a limited basis as her having a healthy life is more important to me. Soon the pool will be open and she can get lots of exercise in it.

Hope is doing great, I have started to allready cut back on some of the things i am doing with Hope, There is a great chance at the Skyhoundz World Disc Dog Championships this year it will be the last time I do Competitive Freestyle with Hope as I dont think it is healthy for her. But we will still do the other throwing games where she doesnt have to put as much stress on her legs. She has grown into a incredibly young lady. She is so so loved around the world.

Hope is doing very good right now, Wished I could play with her more now but the surgeries have set me back and the abundance of rain these past six months also. But I think the break has been good on HOPE also. Hope is still such a sweet girl it was just yesterday once again someone mentioned wow unless something was said they would have not noticed she was missing a leg. Hope is still touching hearts everywhere she goes.

Well onto 2016 with Hope, what a incredible 2015 Hope had, we never realized she was a micro dog until part way thru 2015 and some came up to us and asked us if we ever had her measured and Official judge Ray Lowman measured her and she was under 17 inches at the withers and then even once figured out she was actually competitive they complained and requested another official measurement and guess what once again just like the first time Hope measured under 17 inches. Got interesting Hope actuallly qualified in the world championships in the Expert Freestyle division and Micro Dog Freestyle championships to be held on different days at the world championships. In Expert we can use the the larger discs and micro we have to use the smaller diameter discs. Well after the worlds some people paid no attention and tried to post video and turn in photos of Hope saying she played with large diameter discs in Micro Dogs. Well the officials had all the official videos and proved them wrong and said yes she played with large diameter discs on the Saturday in Expert FS which was legal and played with smaller diameter discs on Sunday which she was allowed to. So once again these people were like oh well. Pretty sad people are intimidated by a over achieving small three legged dog who just wants to play and is such a happy dog.
But we are looking forward to 2016 and what the road ahead has in plan for Hope.
A email I got last night.
I enjoyed so much watching your awesome dogs at the Madison Alabama Disc Dog competition, especially Hope, what a tremendous inspiration! Perfect name for her too!
