I was brought up in a very animal loving environment, lucky to know the compassion and love which mans best friend could bring. Our family dogs were Rottweilers.....
(no difference to the roughs at all eh?!).

However when I took the step to move out The Rough Collie was the breed for me.

I spent a long time researching, thinking and planning before I took the steps of making contact with a breeder. Fluffy as it might sound I am sure fate brought me Brodie (Cariadhaf Crazy Dream). He was made for me. My heart dog, and the ultimate companion. I have a lot of admiration for his breeder, Margaret Harrison and I was lucky to find myself someone who is always there, willing and caring to help me on my journey of not only owning but showing also. So much so a year on I bought another from her, little Bella (Cariadhaf Cookies and Cream)!

Its been a great year so far, learning every day and open to many more years of learning ahead of me. In just a short time I have struck up some lovely relationships and will always be thankful for the help and advice.

I take a lot of pride in my 2 dogs, they are the source of my fun, my love and my laughter. We take frequent beach trips (on the rare nice days we get in Scotland) and Brodie loves coming hill walking with my friends and I. Both have attended obedience and Brodie now also enjoys flyball. Life is good!

 

Cariadhaf Crazy Dream - 'Brodie' 1RCC

DOB 17/11/2014
Kelmbri Gran Torino x Jopium Loves All Around Emryks


Brodie is an energetic, athletic young dog with a love for life, other dogs and people. Every day with this boy is a pleasure. He has had a fairly pleasing start to his show career, consistently placed and gaining many first places.

Brodie had BOB at Upperward of Lanarkshire Open Show and at The Collie Association Championship Show in November 2015 a first in junior dog going on to take the Reserve Challenge Certificate at the tender age of 12 months and 12 days. It was nerve wracking and emotional.

I was honored to receive an invite to The British Collie Club Rough Collie of the Year (below) after gaining this reserve ticket.

Brodie also qualified for The Scottish Collie Club Collie of the year due to gaining an admirable number of show points.

2016 has been a quiet year for Brodie, with the addition of Bella and the trials and tribulations of the first coat blow but there are a lot of plans in the pipeline from the summer onwards.

Cariadhaf Cookies and Cream - 'Bella'

DOB 28/10/2015
Moonpromises Ever After x Cariadhaf Candy Kisses


Little Bella is coming on nicely, maturing at a lovely pace. Her mother is a fab showgirl who shows a lot of promise, already having 2CC and 2RCC, and with Champion Elshajo Armani Moon as her grand father she has a lot to live up to!

But i am sure she will take it all in her stride, already gaining a respectable 3rd place out of 7 minor puppy bitches at her first championship show in May 2016.
