Our first Rough Collie was Leah, a Tri we got as a puppy from Bill and Sandra Murphy. As Leah (out of Camanna the Chairman and Lynaire Music Girl) developed, it was obvious she had “class” and we did well from the very outset in the show ring. The web page photo was taken the day she won Best of Breed at Beverley Open show beating a substantial entry that day. Leah has always shown well outdoors but indoors she goes on strike! Once we were “bitten by the show bug” we wanted to have a sable too. Molly came from Dave and Sue Randall and has to this day the best temperament you can imagine. Molly just loves showing outdoors, indoors, shiny sports halls , anywhere. Molly has also been a great role model for our latest addition, Pippa, another Tri (out of CH Ladnar Kingfisher JW and Ladnar Maid in Time). Pippa is so intelligent, so much fun, and so inquisitive she keeps the other two behaving like young dogs too!

We had a litter with Leah in 2008 and we kept one puppy. We showed Lucy (Didek Sparkling Diamond) up until she was 3 years old, achieving Best of Breed along the way. Lucy is now living happily in Ilkeston.

Leah and Molly have both qualified for Crufts at different times over their show careers, Pippa qualified for 2014 and this year she’s qualified for Crufts 2015.
