My name is Jade Jimenez, I'm 17 years old and have been showing since I was 6. I am Jennifer's daughter, and Robin's grandaughter. I enjoy the dogs very much & have tried to be an asset to Karosel Shelties, as I have always enjoyed being the puppy socializer. I have been doing conformation since I was six, and juniors since I was twelve. I love both for different reasons, but I find it more relaxing & less stressful to show in conformation. Conformation is all on the dog, but juniors is all on the handler! My conformation dog is Gemma, so watch for us in the ring in the fall, because right now she is busy being a mommy to six puppies. There's lots of information on here about my career; feel free to read about it.

Myself and Ch.Karosel Seeking Fame
I decided to start competing in Jr. Showmanship after many years of competing against adults in the conformation ring. I was blessed and was off to a great start as I quickly won three novice intermediate classes in a row, and won a handful of Best Junior prizes as an Open Intermediate competitor. I now currently show in Open Senior. Seeker and I made the perfect team and had a blast together!

MOST RECENT 2011:
I am now showing G. Ch. Karosel After Party (Tucker) in Junior Showmanship Open Senior class and occasionally in Best of Breed. Also, I occasionally show Ch. Karosel Confetti (Carrie), BISS CH. Sea Haven Karosel Starscape (Lydia), and my mother's blue merle smooth collie Kimberee Passionate Kisses O'Lorimar (Jordan). I will also be judging my first Sheltie Specialty in February of 2012!!! Gotta study my Shetland Sheepdog Standard! Below are the beautiful dogs I show, so feel free to check out their pages, and also my old statistics and our show list. I enter about as many as my mother, Jennifer, so I am entered/ing most of the listed shows. Also, I just got a litter out of my Gemma (Karosel Kissable) x Ch. Karosel Drakkar! 6 puppies! Pictures in the nursery!

Jade's Junior Showmanship Stats 2011
Check back on my progress every once in a while.
Beginning my Conformation Career:
Beginning my Juniors Career:
Having been born into shelties, naturally I wanted to show like my mother and nana did. Back then, it was all fun and games, but it was nice to win every once in a while. Unfortunately I didn't do a lot of winning, as I discovered back then that the dog show world can be a bit silly, as some judges may have looked past my dog and I because I was a child. I was always discouraged at that, but I did manage to put 2 points on my dog, Lizzy, and Salsa as pictured, which were some of the greatest memories I have of my childhood, mainly because I did it all by myself and beat the adults ;)
