Spy wasa Border Collie who came to Linda at the age of two. He trained in obedience, in agility and also in herding. Spy was responsible for introducing Linda to the sport of herding. Spy was the son of Betsy Scapicchio's dog Jinx.
In April 2000, Spy earned his PT title at his first herding tests. From June 2000 through March 2001, Linda and Spy completed his U-CD title with three High in Trials, his CD with five HITs, his CDX with three HITs, two legs toward his U-CDX with two HITs, and his UD. On May 5, 2001, they completed his OTCH in just nine shows over six weeks, with two more HITs and one HC, then Spy earned his UDX in July. In September 2000, they placed second in the Novice Division at the 2000 Classic with a total of only four points off in three classes, including one class where they lost only a half point! They placed sixth in 2005, tenth in 2002, and ninth in 2003 in the Super Star division at the All Star Championships. Linda and Spy have earned 27 High in Trial Awards, 16 High Combined Awards, over 130 class placements (including over 60 firsts), over 1000 OTCH points, and scores of 199.5 in Novice, Open, and Utility!
