Hi my name is Pat and I share my home with my husband Peter and our son Andrew , border collies ,chinese cresteds and the cats. Our daughter Stephanie has already fled the nest and lives with our son-in-law Dave and grandaughters Mariah and Piper. My eldest son James has also left home and lives with his son Jacob.
My grandaughter Mariah has an interest in the Starside affixas she has worked hard training , preparing and showing the border collies.
I have always had dogs ( for as long as I can remember anyway). I first really noticed Border Collies when my sons started playing rugby and a lady used to work her 4 borders on the playing fields. It looked easy!.So when it came time for another dog my first choice was a border collie and I've never looked back since.
I met Jean Entwistle of Beesting Border Collies at obedience and she introduced me to the world of dog showing.I ordered a blue and white bitch puppy (Beesting Jezabell from Starside) and then started the constant round of ring-craft and puppy training......I'm still learning and always will be!
I have border collies in most of the main colours including ee-red and merles .My passion for coloured border collies is as keen as for correct conformation , temperment and health.There is no point in having the most wonderful blue dog or bitch that is a poor example of the breed
You can find more about my dogs by clicking on their names on the contents page.
Please feel free to wander around the site and to leave your coments in the guest books.
I sometimes have puppies available to approved homes
Well what can I say about these bundles of fun ....
I first spotted a chinese crested dog at the LKA one year and asked just what it was!!.Little did I know that I would be completely and utterly anamoured by this breed .I was ( and still am) fascinated by them .
I got my first Crestie in 2005.Bred by Dita Kilsby .CoCo ( Tamarsh Love Story )has started this passion for these little dogs..On 26/07/2007 CoCo safely delivered my first litter of Chinese Crested puppies.
I then found Bliss ( Hitmonchan Meliisa From Starside) and her grandaughter(Neffa( Kenmileven Draco at Starside )
I have started to show my new baby Maggibons Bewitched (Lizzie) and am looking forward to having some fun in the ring with her
