While stationed in California, with the USN, my father met and worked with Rudd Weatherwax. Ever since that chance meeting, my father came to love collies. And because of that, I have been around collies from a young age.
THIS IS "SCOOP"
. Jay's A Dandy Duke, born July 10, 1956, Sable. This was my first collie who protected me every minute. He would walk to the entrance to the park where my school was and walk me home.
THIS IS "DUSTY"
. Sir Dustin Poocher, born April 12, 1970, Sable. Dusty loved to jump and play. He enjoyed sleeping in my bedroom closet every night.
THIS IS "CHESTER"
. Sir Chester Buckingham, born November 25, 1985, Sable. Chester loved the snow and would run with me every day. He died shortly before my father died and my daughter wanted to know if "people heaven was near dog heaven so Grandpa could walk Chester".
THIS IS "THUNDER"
. Clarion's Blue Thunder from Ch. Clarion Paint a Rumor & Clarion Alenclaud Alliance, born April 12, 2003, Blue Merle. I hope to show Thunder soon. He is a sweat dog with a mischievous streak. He runs with me every morning.
THIS IS "CRYSTAL"
. Here is a picture of Crystal. She is Canadian Ch. Prairiepine’s Crystal Vision (Sire Am/Can Ch Lakewind’s Shot In The Dark & Dam Can Ch. PrairiePine's Color Of Love). She is the boss of the house.
