Sommerville Mr Nice Guy
CC at Leeds Champ Show 2008

CC at Scottish Kennel Club Ch Show 2009


I would like to introduce myself; my name is Michael James Ewing of the Sommerville Shetland Sheepdogs,
I live with my wife plus the dogs just outside the small village of Dalrymple in Ayrshire Scotland.
A few years after we got married I purchased my first Sheltie in 1973 but due to having a young family and
working long hours it was not until 1980 when I purchased a brood bitch from
Ron and Jean Fitzsimmons of the Snabswood Shetland Sheepdogs that I really got interested
in the show side then I applied to the Kennel Club for my prefix of Sommerville

In 1991 I made up my first Champion in this country Ch Allanvail Scarletta of Tegwel Pedigree (photo)
Iíve also had several dogs qualified for the stud book plus won several Challenge Certificates + resCCs

The last Champions I made up before my accident in 2000 were
Ch Sommerville Seed Pearl
and Ch Sommerville Sunrise

In 1994 I sat the Mid Western Shetland Sheepdog Club (in conjunction with the English Shetland Sheepdog Club) Training of Judges Scheme of which I passed, then in 1997 I judged my first Championship show in UK.
Iíve also had the honour to be invited to Sweden in 1999 to judge one of their Championship Shows,
since then Iíve judged in Holland, Finland & Norway plus several venues in UK.

 Due to a bad accident in 2000 I havenít been showing till 2008
when I introduced my first home breed blue merle dog Sommerville Mr Nice Guy

Sommerville Shelties in other countries:
In Denmark a dog of mine was made a Champion at 18 months old, DK Ch Sommerville Iím Your Man in 1993.
Since then Iíve bred other dogs that are now living in other countries which have also become Champions
