Ch Jade Mist Beyond Tradition, ROM/ROMC
February 10, 1989 - December 27, 2002

Champion Jade Mist Beyond Tradition ROM/ROMC was truly a "once in a lifetime" dog.  "Dillon" was bred by the late Keith B. Howell, D.V.M., and Carol G. Howell, and achieved so much in his almost 14 years of life.  Not only was he a very beloved pet, and a loyal and constant companion to Carol, but he ended his stud career at 10 years of age, becoming THE  NUMBER 5 ALL-TIME CHAMPION PRODUCER in the history of the breed. 

"Dillon" was awarded his Register of Merit (ROM) in 1996 by the AMERICAN SHETLAND SHEEPDOG ASSOCIATION for having  produced 10 American Champion offspring.   In 1999, he earned his Register of Merit (ROMC) in Canada, for having produced 10 Canadian Champions.  As the list continued to grow (he is currently the sire of 54 American Champions) he was awarded TOP PRODUCING SIRE in 1997 and 1998 by the AMERICAN SHETLAND SHEEPDOG ASSOCIATION. He was Runner-Up to TOP SIRE in 1996, and in 1999. 

The loss of "Dillon" has left a big void at JADE MIST, but he left behind a son (Ch. Jade Mist New Sun Rising ROM) and a grandson (Am./Can. Ch. Jade Mist Memorandum ROM) who both achieved their ROM in 2003. They also tied for 2003 ASSA TOP PRODUCING SIRE.  Perhaps this is "Dillon's biggest achievement.  His legacy lives on at JADE MIST.
