Dogs are in my blood, the last 15 yrs of my life I've put my heart and soul into making sure all my dogs get nothing but the best of care and feeding from day one of their life. After spending many years doing racing greyhounds to a very high standard I decided to dip my toe into the world of rough collies. With the help of many breeders and advice I approached Duna Jones and Josh Blackburn at Erjon, it was them who I bought my first pup off Erjon Eligible, a young dog who had did well in the show ring. My first adventure into the show world was at the Ayrshire Collie Club show where "Bailey"  (Erjon Eligible) picked up reserve best dog, that was my first ever show and I was delighted the dog had showed his socks off.

I returned to Erjon and bought a young tri bitch and bred my first litter of puppies with keeping a couple of show potential pups always in my mind. Shortly after and sadly due to illness and bad luck in my personal life, I left the show ring and breeding for 3 yrs but after meeting my partner Elizabeth and her persauding me to take up breeding and showing again,  and after recovering from a long term illness, I purchased Mertrisa Melt My Heart (Maggie) from Karen Johnston and have bred a stunning litter sired by Erjon Excelebration. I've kept 3 puppies out of this litter to get myself back into the show ring hopefully later in 2019.. the bug is back!!! .. So here's hoping something nice is in this litter and I get to a few shows this year
