DJR Sweep, also known as Junior, is one of Scott's nursery prospects this year. Jr. is a son of Little Sweepy who used to be owned by Scott and was third in the 2005 USBCHA Nursery Nationals. He also made the double lift the next year placing sixth at the 2006 USBCHA Nationals. He was later sold to Don Russell of Missouri.
Jr.'s mother is Don's Ettrick Belle who goes back to Dryden Joe. (that side of the pedigree is easy)
Although he has the expression and color of his father (and his grandfather Sweep, and his great-grandmother, Nan!) Jr. is a much larger dog than his father. His confidence in his training is picking up and he seems to be one of those dogs who doesn't upset sheep.
