Sonkist Aussies is a small hobby kennel located in Southern California owned by
Heather and Paul Scott.

Heather has been involved in Aussies since 1990, when she obtained her first
Aussie, a blue merle male named
Tyler (Country-Way's Beau Monde, akc CDX,
asca CD, NA, CGC. Together. Heather and Tyler trained and trialed in obedience,
agility, and Jr handling.

When Tyler retired due to health problems, Heather purchased
Cooper in 1999
(AKC/ASCA CH Calais Skors of Options, DNA-CP, PT, CGC) from Terri
Morgan and Selena Poplin. After finishing his AKC and ASCA championships,
Cooper was limitedly specialed and ended the 04/05 show year as ASCA Merit
Dog #27, and 05/06 ASCA Merit Dog #17 and was invited both years to the
ASCA National Specialty Conformation Invitational. Cooper sired multiple
Champions and lived his retirement in a wonderful home in Colorado until he
passed away in 2010.

In 2007 we were blessed with a very special boy...
Tucker (akc/asca CH Calais
Carolina CallMeClassic, dna-vp) is our gorgeous red merle male from Terri
Morgan and Selena Poplin. He is by HOF ASCA/AKC CH Carolina Bayshore
Birdcage and out of ASCA/AKC CH Calais Carolina Mustang Sally, STDs (05/06
#1 ASCA Merit Dog and winner of 2006 Conformation Invitational). He is a
multiple BOB and BOS winner, finished his ASCA Championship at 11 months of
age, and his AKC Championship at 22 months of age. Tucker's first ASCA
Nationals was a dream come true. At just 22 months of age, he Premiered at two
of the three pre-shows, made the cut at the other pre-show, and assisted his dam
Sal in winning a huge Brood Bitch class!! During his selective career as a stud
dog, he sired multiple Champion offspring, including ASCA National Specialty
Circuit BOB, BOS and Premier CH winners. Tucker is retired now and spends
his days basking in the sun and playing with his favorite toy.

Emmi (ASCA/AKC CH Carolina Calais On The Fly) joined Sonkist in late
2007...THANK YOU to Terri Morgan, Selena Poplin, and Elizabeth Stibley for
sending her to California!!! Emmi went WB at a pre-show and WB/BOW at the
WI ASCA Nationals in 2006 to finish her Championship, and won the Open
Black Bitch class at the 2006 USASA Natls. At the 2008 USASA Nationals she
won Winners Bitch and an Award of Merit!!

In five short months of campaigning, Emmi went from an unranked champion to
ASCA's Number 1 Intact Conformation Merit Dog!! She had a terrific National
Specialty in Vegas, winning Best Opp at the first pre-show, Premiering at the
other two pre-shows, finishing 2nd at the Intact Conformation Finals, and
winning Best Opposite at the 2008 ASCA National Specialty under SBJ Rick
Gann. Emmi finished her AKC Championship in January 2009 and in limited
showing is a multiple AKC BOB winner. Emmi finished the 2008/2009 ASCA
show year as the #1 Intact Conformation Merit winner for the second year in a
row, this time with over 2400 points to her credit. Thank you to all of the judges
who have made her show career such a success!!  Emmi excelled in the show
ring and has also made her mark as a Hall of Fame Dam, winning the Brood
Bitch class at the 2013 ASCA National Specialty, and producing notable offspring
including #2 ASCA Conformation Merit Dog and ASCA National Specialty BOS
winner, ASCA/AKC GCH Sonkist Evening At The Emmys "Lena."

We are fortunate to have a few Emmi kids residing at Sonkist: her daughters
ASCA/AKC CH Sonkist It's Love I'm After "Olivia" and ASCA/AKC CH Sonkist
Skip To My Lou "Judy" and son "Bogey" ASCA/AKC CH
SonkistNeed4SpeedCalaisCarolina. All are ASCA National Specialty premier

Emmi has a very special place in my heart, and I'm forever grateful to my
Calais/Carolina family for allowing this amazing dog to join our family.
We're honored to be nick-named "Calais/Carolina West" - love you guys!!

Heather has competed with and titled dogs in obedience, agility, and junior
showmanship and garnered multiple High In Trial, Best Junior Handler, Best of
Breed, and Best In Specialty Show awards. She enjoys mentoring others in the
breed and continually learning from mentors of her own. I enjoy giving back to a
sport that taught me the value of hard-work, dedication, and encouraged my love
of Aussies.

In addition to handling my own dogs, I also show a limited selection of client
dogs in ASCA conformation competition and offers dog training and owner
handling lessons.

You'll also find me running two home-based businesses:
Sonkist Designs -
offering promotion services including website design and ad design services.
Heather is also an Independent
Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. Shop the online
collection at the website (see link above).

In late 2014, I welcomed another great guy into the Sonkist family...I married
Paul Scott. Together we enjoy staying active, going to country concerts, and
vacationing. I continue to attend select shows, with my own dogs and the
occasional client dog, as well as promoting my
Mary Kay Cosmetics business.

In addition to working full time, Heather enjoys time with the dogs, riding her
horse, and growing her home businesses. In addition to Mary Kay (which she's
been doing for over 12 years now), Paul and Heather became travel agents in
2018 and are learning the industry. Heather also decided to take her love for
sparkly things and started making dog show leads in late 2019. Check out her
available work on facebook. When not working or showing dogs, Paul and
Heather enjoy traveling (thus why we became travel agents),
going to movies and
concerts, country dancing, and working out.
