Coming Soon – Deep River Update for 2016


SPRING  2016


Available to a Good Show/Performance Home:  SOLD

Handsome, rough factored smooth male – 18 months. In just 2 weekends of shows, Talen has two specialty Reserves & two all-breed 4 point majors toward his championship. He is entered in upcoming local shows.

Talen high drive and loves learning. He has some obedience training and had strong herding instinct as a puppy, as did his littermates. I predict a bright future in performance, as well as a possible specials career when mature.  Sound structure, lovely head detail. Proven sire.

July 1, 2015 :  Charlies becomes a Dual Champion!

Claire took Charlie to Berryville, VA and earned a third 4 pt. major to finish his AKC Herding Championship. AKC only gives DC’s to dogs that earn a conformation championship and a championship in the area of work for which they were bred.

Dear Friends,

After you read what I’ve written below, please go to my Available Collies page to see the 3 collies I have for sale. The girl on the page will go to a show home only. Please do not inquire about her if you are not willing to show her, at some point, to her championship.

Sorry for no April news yet. I was very sick within a few days of my return from the Collie National in OK. I was hospitalized on April 1 and released the evening of April 8. My dear friends the Sanderson family took on two weeks of my care at their home because I am still on oxygen. Claire cared for my collies at home for those two weeks. I cannot thank them all enough. 

Other friends did favors for me as needed, and I appreciate them all. I’m at home as of yesterday afternoon. I  continue on oxygen, but have gotten down to 2.5 liters as of this morning. I will continue to lower my oxygen as my blood oxy allows. Thanks also to those of you who sent cards, and called to check on me. Special thanks to Joel & Nick for the beautiful tulips; I enjoyed them very much!



Gold GCh Chanel


On her trip with Dona to FL, Chanel earned a specialty BOS & BOV, but best of all, she earned back-to-back Group I’s and one Reserve Best in Show! Group judges were Linda More & Mr. Vandiver.

At the four collie specialty shows in western NY, she garnered 4 BOV wins and on to 2 BOB wins!

At the Oconee River KC all-breed shows, Chanel was BOV & Herding Group 2 on Sat. and BOV & Herding Group ! on Sun. She repeated those wins in TN With a Group 1 & a Group 2. 

Chanel finished out May with three BOV wins at the Salisbury, NC shows with two Herding Group 2’s for a stellar two months of shows!
