the Grade, AX and AXJ and Junior Dock Dogs
welcomed Lock-Eye's Making the Grade - Quiz (Vip X Lazer) into my life in July
of 2003. He was shipped with his brother Zap and they were as happy as could be
after making the plane trip from Oklahoma to San Diego. Quiz was already clicker
savvy when he arrived (via Michelle), so the fun started immediately.
Eye Breezin' Around Ewe (called Bree )
took me over a year of researching various breeders before I decided to go with
a puppy from Lock Eye Border Collies.
Recoil, aka Bungee,FMX, *CGC
I would like to thank Michelle Weese with Lock-Eye Border Collies for giving me the exact dog that I asked for and my best friend. I looked at her site for awhile before I chose to call her and talk to her about a dog. I knew with my schedule, pup might be hard at the time because it would be alone for long periods. I asked if Michelle ever had any slightly older dogs, and that I didn't care about sex or color really, although I love Black and Whites and Black tris, but what was important was a dog with over the top drive but also had to be lovey enough to snuggle with me at night and be good around kids, becasue I have a 2 yr old niece that I am very close to.
Michelle gave all this and more when she gave me Bungee. He is the smartest dog I have ever owned and sleeps on my bed every night, cheers me up when I need it and can be a total goofball. He also plays soccer with my firends 3 yr old son and plays dolls with my 2 yr old niece. He even takes commands from her and follows her like she is his best bud.
But besides all this I got him for the sport of flyball which I play and am hopelessly hooked on. He has the smarts, speed and drive to make him one of the best. He learned the game almost overnight and has become one of the fastests dogs on our team, He is consistant and a joy to handle.I also am going to try him in agility in fall, where I'm certain he will excel, with his intense focus and desire to please.
When I had only owned Bungee
for 16 days, I took him along on a fun day with friends to get the Canine
certificate on my older dog, Jenna.
He is exactly what I asked her for and more. I love him more than words can say and will be coming back to Lock-Eye in the near future for another one of these special dogs!
Thank-you, Michelle for my new best friend!

MACH Lockeye Flirt
Updated reference from Jan, 2007
I purchased my first Border Collie
from Michelle Weese of Lockeye Border Collies.
I purchased a Border
Collie 3 years ago form Michelle Weese. The experience has been very
positive in every way, from our first phone
Lock-Eye Tyri the
Tenacious - FDCH-S
Our names are Rich and Chris Sells and we are owned and loved by Two Lock-Eye Border Collies along with one other Border Collie and a trio of shelties.
The above pictures are of LE Tyri, who came to us in December 2004 as my Birthday present from my husband. I had been speaking with Michelle for about 3 months about getting a red/white male Border Collie. We already had a female Border Collie and we loved the breed and had become addicted to the sport of flyball.
Talking to Michelle, was like talking to an old friend. Michelle loves this breed as much as we do. We spoke about what we were looking for in another dog, the differences in females and males, what kind of household we had (busy). Michelle asked all of the questions, we would expect a great breeder to ask.
Tyri came out of his crate rearing to go. I was amazed that this 9 week old puppy already knew his basic commands, performed them perfectly and that he tugged like mad. Michelle puts a lot of time and love into these wonderful puppies. I have recommended her breeding program to anyone that asks about getting a Border Collie!!
Tyri is currently playing flyball and has his 4th title, Flyball Dog Champion Silver in his first 3 tournaments. We didn't name him Tenacious for nothing, he is focused and ready at all times to play. He loves to wake up in the morning, give a quick kiss hello and go back and lay down, like he didn't wake you up at all. As testament to Michelle's knowledge and smarts, she placed the perfect dog in the perfect home and we couldn't be happy.
This lovely lady came into our lives in March 2006, totally unexpected. Rich and I were not currently looking to add another dog to our household, but fate again would intervene in our lives.
I had emailed Michelle to find out where all of Flame's puppies where going. Michelle emailed me back that all of the puppies had homes, except for, Charli Bear (aka Scorcher). Michelle was very up front with us and told us that she was a shy puppy and had an overbite. (Breeder's note: We rarely have a shy puppy, but when we do, we take extra time to work the pup through it and of course are honest with family interested in that pup. Overbites are rare as well and her sire, Solar was neutered. Charli Bear was a gift to Rich and Chris.)
Michelle, as her custom, started sending us pictures and video's of this little girl. Michelle took extra time and gave Charli Bear a great foundation of training in basic obedience. Charli Bear came to us two weeks later, not a shy puppy, but a confident puppy that looked out at this big wide world and made it hers!!! There was a 3 hour flight delay and she came out of her crate, ready to play with everyone.
Charli Bear is a true cuddle bug and loves nothing better to jump up in your arms and get a belly rub. She has just started flyball classes and is going to be a speed demon.
Michelle, we couldn't be happier
with both of these wonderful dogs and thank you for giving them the
foundation to be the perfect fit for our household.
The puppy below is Ony. She lives in Alaska and is in training for a SAR dog and also does Agility. She had no fear of the A-Frame here! Her mother is Roxy and her sire is Lock-Eye Ed. (Ed is a Cash son,out of a Kit x Syd daughter named Zip.)
