    Cassie - 9 year old border collie was re-homed to us as her old owners quite simply didn't want her, she did lots of agility when she was younger but now just does it for fun. She completed her Bronze Kennel Club Award and might do some more at a later date.

    Aww,they are so beautiful! I love Rosie's coloring.

    When I was teaching dog classes, we had a blue and white border collie in class. I thought at the time he was just a blue merle who didn't have any merling showing; it was a couple of years before I knew blue could be a color on it's own as well.

    I've not seen many blues either. What color was the sire?

    Where breeding are your working border collies? :)

    There are lots in the states! Unfortunately, I've only ever seen blues in hardcore show lines.

    All of your Border Collies are stunning! :D I love all of the variety you have. I love Cassie... she looks so sweet. And Moss looks stunning! He reminds me of my farm boy. More, more!

    You don't mind if I take lighter blue puppy, do you? Kthxbai.
