My first memories of the Rough Collie breed stem from my childhood. My Father was an avid fan of the breed and I vividly remember his first litter.

“Lassie” had her pups in the whelping shed and once they were of age I remember them venturing out into the garden and my father had to pick me up as they were nipping at my heels.   I must have only been about 3 years old.

The puppy which the family kept from that litter was “Shep” and she was my constant childhood companion until I lost her aged 13.

My love of the breed has developed from that time and once I was married with a family of my own, we decided that we wanted to add  a Rough Collie to it.  Shortly after our seach began, my father was contacted about a 10 month old dog that needed re-homing.  We decided that of course we would rescue “Brandy” and so he came to live with us until we lost him aged 7 years old.

This led us to the passion of rehoming rescue dogs and we did so until the family had grown and left home.

After we lost our last rescue dog aged 13,  I decided that I wanted to return to the pedigree Rough Collie and found that I was drawn to the dog show world.

And so the story begins…..
