Mou is very happy...and we with are a wonderful stud, rarely have I  watched puppies so perfect... thank you Mare and Stephen.

Dear Mary and Stephen, in this picture there is the special moment: Mou is arriving to the airport of Malpensa (Milano). I was very happy wen I took her in my arms...I wept, people looked me to understand the reason; none was in my was arrived my joy... Best regard Susanna

Attached below you can find two shots of Mou taken during last weekend. There is still a lot of snow on the Alps (Dolomiti Mountains) beyond the 6000ft and she met it the first time. Then, she has driven us crazy to play with it.

She was very happy to walk with the sled dog harness too and to follow  the scent of the wild animals :-)
Mou is happy with us...and we are very  very happy with her.

She is lovely with all dog, she play with people and dogs...thank you very match for Mou...we are very happy all together. She is a wonderful puppie.

Aug 2009: We are training Mou right now. Great instinct and a very "serious" dog ... My wife lose the sheep and Mou catched them to her.

Sept 2010: Dear Mary and Stephen, Mou becomes nicer day by day....our friends tell about Mou, that she's" secchiona" (it means in Italian language: hard-working, and that she studies all day... ) This noun because Mou is more clever ,she learns new things quickly. Mou is good in sport obedience (she is so pretty when she works). A lot of people ask us where Mou comes from...because it 's difficult to see so good dogs. I love the  joy of Mou, all, around her become regards Susanna and Massimo


March 2010: Hi Mary and Stephen, this dog in the wonderful snow is Mou that is playing with Flo...every day is a new adventure for her...and then for us too

I give too many pats to Mou...but she is so special that it's not possible make otherwise ...We love Mou more and more...She works very happy with me. I am every day more proud of this fantastic kelpie..


Noonbarra Mou is an excellent dog at Agility

Noonbarra Flash X Noonbarra Jenny II

Owned by Catherine Martin in Switzerland

Born: 30th May 2009  Red & Tan Female.

This puppy was the same litter as our own Noonbarra Lily II. We sent two dogs over to Switzerland at the same time. One to Catherine (Noonbarra Teedjy) and one to Corrine (Noonbarra Aeta). Catherine also owns Noonbarra Ballina.  Unfortunately as Catherine doesn't speak English we had to deal through her sister who speaks and writes a little English and after a computer breakdown we lost some of that correspondence.

I think you know what I wish for me! a wonderful puppy!- Catherine

I'm writing to you for my sister, because her english is even worse than mine. She is 
looking forward having a mate for Balina. My sister likes very much to play with Ballina and she wants a puppy that like also games.!

Catherine love so much the character and the beauty of Balina, that she wants another dog from your kelpies stud. She will not work with sheeps but agility (not at top level!). The  ideal puppy will not be fearful but affectionnated, good with children, cheerful but not too excited
