In 1982 I just happened into collies. I had no intention of ever owning a collie, but upon owning my first, I fell in love.
They impressed me, and continue to impress me with their unconditional love, loyalty, and devotion to their owner. I cannot imagine life without a collie. They have a soul unlike any other breed. And I believe that they can actually read your mind!
Because of this, and my wish to share my experiences with others. I have strived over the years to produce the true collie spirit in each of my dogs. That inner beauty that I cherish and wish to preserve in this breed.
I'm a lover of both rough (long coated) and smooth (short coated) varieties, and of all the delightful variety of colors including the whites.
With pride I can say that ALL my dogs are
Clear of PRA and Clear of Cyclic Neutropenia (grey collie syndrome).
I have returned back to the show ring after a long sabbatical
while raising my youngest daughter.
