  1. Like you, my love of collies comes from an Albert Peyson Terhune book, “The Way of a Dog”, a Biko that belonged to my dad when he was growing up. That, and “Lassie” turned into a lifelong love of collies. I have had two…one had to be put down before reaching one year of age because of a skin condition that did not respond to treatment. Our second had to be re-homed due to a military transfer to Hawaii and we couldn’t afford transportation and quarantine. Now that we are retired, I hope to be able to save up enough to have another…collies are really the only breed I want…as a companion only…no showing or breeding. Thanks for your responsible breeding.

  2. Your dogs are beautiful. Thank you for sharing them with those of us learning about the breed. I hope one day to be lucky enough to be owned by an Irish Wolfhound.

  3. I have just lost my companion collie of 13 years and I am trying not to resist the urge to get another. It is not working and I miss my beautiful blue merle, Cody, more than I care to admit. Even to myself!

    My son and daughter in law are both veterinarians of some note in both private practice and at the University of Penna. Incidentally, my son and daughter both attended and graduated from the University of Michigan and my grandson will be a freshmen at the University of Wisconsin this fall.

    All that being said, I would be very interested in a more senior dog (male or female) that might be retiring from your breeding program and is looking for a loving home with experienced owners to retire to the gentle life. We have three other rescue dogs who are getting up there in years 10,12 and 13 respectively. They are gentle and accepting of new introductions to the family! We adopted a 5 year old collie from another breeder who was 5 at the time and she (FIONA) lived until ten when she contracted cancer and needed to leave us forever.

    I look forward to your reply… respectfully

  4. Sorry to be so many months behind responding. These comments apparently don’t show up unless I log in and then go to the comments page. Let me know if you are still looking. Love the university connections.

  5. Hi Judi,
    Just wanted to extend our best wishes on your new litter of November 2019. Rivendell’s Midnight “Simon” is doing wonderful! For those reading this, he is the Tri color male pictured in the puppies of February 7, 2018. What a luv and a wonderful friend to all of us. Although he is just under 2 years, he has really calmed down and matured into a really nice pet. He loves playing in the yard and with all of his toys, of which he has many. He also gets along with Oliver our 2 yr. old male Birman Blue Tabby kitty. They have become good friends. All is good in Reno, NV this winter’s day in December 2019, it’s snowing as I write. Simon loves the tree and removes his favorite ornaments within his reach!!
    Thanks Judi, best regards, Bev
