The Video

Oh, I forgot to mention that Hush won her 4th Major on Sunday. She is now at 13 points.

Got Collie?

A breed I have admired for years has been the Collie. IMHO, they are truly everything that has ever been portrayed by Lassie.

We are thrilled to announce that we are now owned by a 6 month old, smooth coat, sable & white, female named Diamond!

As what happens to newbies on most breeds coming into the dog show world… while it may be a dream to show and raise quality puppies, long timers in your breed of choice can be very snobby and rude. Not so much in Cardigans (THANK GOODNESS – my fellow Cardi people rock!) but I know it to be the case in GSDs and other more popular breeds.

Diamond’s breeder has had the dream to show and raise quality Collies, just like I have been living the dream of showing and raising quality Cardigans. She bought nicely bred dogs. She has done all essential Collie health testing. She has no mentor and no one in the show world has been very pleasant. And, it seems everyone in our local area wants a Rough Collie for a companion, not a Smooth.

If you know of someone who would like a nice Smooth Collie, please contact Becky at petgroomer7@yahoo.com

She really needs to get these puppies into their own homes, sooner rather than later. The have all vaccines (including rabies), they have been CERFd, microchipped and are very well socialized!! They are crate trained, housebroken and leash trained as well.

She will let them go very reasonably to the right home, references and a fenced yard are required. And I can say that in my limited Collie knowledge, that there may be a show prospect or two!! Diamond is a lovely pup, but her one sister has “more” and if someone is interested in crossing over to the legged side, this may be your opportunity!!

Just some candid photos.

My dear friend Carolyn, who now lives in Tennessee, was here to visit last week. We had to bring her the puppies! The last time she saw Sailor and Sea Sea was when they were newborns. She was in town and kind enough to drive me to the vet and stay with me all day, after Leonard & I were up all night, for the c-section.

Carolyn has Sabrina's blue sister, Charm. Charm only had the one litter and her daughter Lulu (sired by Maverick, CH Sisterwood Shady Ridge Top Gun) lives in the next town with another great friend, Susan. Susan and Carolyn finally met and Lulu had a reunion with her mum!

Carolyn enjoyed being reunited with the girls and it was so good to see her. I miss having her close by.
