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!
