Rove is from the litter of Aust Ch Rhonabwy Magic Gemma ADM JDM SPDX GD ET FM by Aust CH Etherial Chase The Ace PT. He is a very sweet, unassuming dog with sound, athletic structure, with a lovely dark eye and masculine head. The above head shot and stacked shot to the right were taken at just under three years of age. Rove has been shown in conformation and trialled to the masters level in agility and jumping, but is now retiring to enjoy the finer things in life.

Rove achieved some lovely wins in the show ring with multiple baby and minor of breed awards. He was awarded second in the minor dog class at the first Australian Border Collie National Specialty out of 14 entrants at only six months and two weeks of age. He achieved his first Reserve Challenge in full line up and Minor Puppy in Group at the tender age of seven and a half months, and followed this up with a second Reserve Challenge only a few weeks later. He went on to be awarded another Minor in Group on 17/6/06 at the Frankston & Peninsula Kennel Club Inc Champ Show and Reserve Challenge/Runnner Up Best of Breed at the Cranbourne Dog Club champ show on 18/6/06, and graduated to Junior in Group on 19/8/06 at the Lillydale Kennel Club Pot of Gold Championship Show. At his first Border Collie Club of Victoria Championship Show on 4/11/06 he was awarded Junior in Show amongst some lovely competition. Rove was awarded Reserve Challenge and Runner Up Best of Breed at the Garden State Kennel Club Inc Championship Show on 18/2/07, and on 10/6/07 at the Border Collie Club of Victoria 2007 Championship Show he placed 3rd in the Intermediate class, having only just graduated into the intermediate age category.

Rove made his debut in agility and jumping at the 2007 National Agility Trials in Adelaide, South Australia. In a rather amazing manner, he obtained his Novice Jumping title in the space of thirty six hours- his last pass also earnt him 3rd place in the National Novice Jumping Final! He also achieved his first pass in Novice Strategic Pairs at this event with his sister Echo, and a pass in Novice Snooker. What a way to start his agility and jumping career in style!

Rove has gone on to be awarded his Agility Dog title on 11/6/07 and complete his Novice Strategic Pairs (with Dash's daughter Bordarita Gotta Be Magic ADX JDX SPDX SDX) title in quick succession on 16/6/07. He has recently achieved his Excellent Jumping title with 3/5 first places, his novice Snooker title on 14/10/07, and his Novice Gamblers title on 1/12/07. He completed his Excellent Strategic Pairs title with Gemma and then Paris as his partner.

Rove won the 2007 Melbourne Royal Agricultural Society Show Excellent Jumping event and earned himself the Border Collie Club of Victoria Best Performance by a Border Collie in Jumping award on the day. He then went to Perth for the Royal Show event and achieved Open Jumping and Excellent Agility passes, both of which were third places.
