More of our wonderful Border Collies.
These were 6 of our 7 original Border Collies. We haven't located a picture of Zoey yet, but we will post it as
soon as we do. These were all registered with the AIBC.
is Annabelle. She is on the top of this page because Anna was
tops in our book. I never once heard her growl. She was the
ultimate Mother to all of the dogs. She could whip a wild pup
into shape with her mere presence. Anna was the daughter of Bear
and Zelda. We named her Annabelle after Lucille Ball.
Annabelle was a wild puppy, but she outgrew all of that and was pure
joy to live with.
This is Bear. He is a grandson of ##Wiston Cap. We bought Bear in 1986. He was the best Border Collie
anyone could ever hope for.
is Tess on our farm in Asheville, NC. Tess was a granddaughter of
Sagebrush Sage and her lines go back to some great North Carolina
working dogs on her mother's side. Tess carried the red
gene. She produced both sheep and cowdogs. She will always
be in our hearts.
is our Zelda. She was named after F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife,
Zelda. Zelda was a fabulous loving dog. She also carried
the red gene. Zellie was a greatgranddaughter of Ada Karrasch's
great trial dog, Nan. Her lines also go back to McTier's
#Ben. We are sure she is waiting for us over the rainbow bridge.
is Benjamin Frank. He was named after my
greatgreatgrandfather. We called him Ben. Ben was a
chocolate sable merle. He produced the greatest cowdogs!!
His lines go back to the Kuykendall's Rock and Salt and Sue Noll's dogs
is Miss Kate. She was named after my greatgrandmother.
Kate's lines go back to #Dryden Joe. She was the ultimate house
dog. Kate loved to play hide and seek and could talk in long
sentences. She was the perfect Border Collie.
