Heather and Casey sleeping.
Connor in our back yard.
My niece, grandaughter, Connor and Sam our blacklab.
Conner and Heather were both beautiful, strong, energetic, loyal, and loving family pets. Connor, the more subdued one. When I came home in the evening and let them in the house he would come to my chair and jump up in my lap, as best he could, and push his big face up in my neck and love on me.
Heather is still all of those things and is content to lean against my chair for a good back rub and scratch. She was also the mischievous one. If during the evening playtime hadn't been initiated by my then 7 year old granddaughter it wouldn't take long for Heather to initiate it herself! She loved to saunter up to Casey and playfully nip at her or tug on her clothing until Casey started running from her and then the chase was on.
There was nowhere Casey could run from her without Heather outsmarting her by watching to see which way she was going and then intercepting from the other direction. If Casey managed to get away long enough to try to hide behind a chair Heather would leap up into the chair and bound over it to prove "I can find you!". And when they slept, they slept together.
When Casey was a bit younger and outside with the other dogs, I noticed at different times that Connor would run up quickly and position himself in front of Casey when he saw them coming towards her as if to keep them from jumping up on her. He would stand in front of her and look back at them. After she got older he sensed that she could fend for herself with our other dogs. Or maybe he just figured out that they were not going to hurt her.
Heather and Connor were our foundation pets and companions. Heather is now retired and Connor has crossed over the rainbow bridge. We loved him dearly and miss him everyday.
We strive for Collie health. Our pets are all DNA tested to produce healthy happy quality collie puppies.
Murron born in April 2009, sitting in our small orchard. Murron is our "Timmy fell in the well collie" :-) If anything happens that she thinks needs my attention she comes to let me know about it quick. She always makes sure she gets my attention no matter what she has to do! And when Heather had her last litter of pups, Murron was not satisfied until she made sure I was wakened at 3:30 in the morning for the happy event. I always tell her what a good girl she is, we love her very much for her attentiveness. Both Heather and Murron are retired and living the good life.
