Special Seniors

Rita – CH Deep River’s Right on Red HIC, ROM is our very special old girl at 14 years 6 months old! DOB: 3/11/93 She is currently the top producing smooth bitch in collie history with 17 smooth & rough champion offspring from 4 breedings. She has produced CCA winning children and has CCA winning grandchildren and great grandchildren (reserve & higher).  She has ROM daughters, granddaughters and great granddaughters. Her littersister CH Deep River’s Joy Ride CD (Lee Justice) was CCA BOV smooth twice and BOS to BOB once. I love you Rita!  Rita is pictured at 8 weeks, 9 months, and 13 years old.


Hillary – CH Deep River Karizma Highlight will be 11 years old in January. I love looking at her as she comes very close to all I admire in a collie – she’s also still a very silly girl! Hillary only gave us 4 puppies total, but all four are of excellent quality and include Diane’s mother, the rough sable Deep River’s A Glorious Light (also the dam of two rough tri champions) & Glory’s brother CH Deep River Skyesong Con Man (blue rough). This winter we will be showing Hillary’s two beautiful rough blue boys from her late-in-life litter of two sired by Glory’s son CH Deep River’s Consider It Done. These boys, Deep River’s A Light From Within and Deep River’s Light The Night Sky HT (two 4 pt. majors) will be out in their new coats soon.


Camille – CH Deep River Younghaven Snow ‘N Ice ROM is 9-years-old. Camille is one of my favorites too; she is a truly beautiful harlequin blue merle and is Rita’s granddaughter.  (Breeders Louann Young & Jenny Duhon by Deep River’s Snow Clouds x CH Younghaven Deep River Rapids ROM) Camille has produced 11 champion smooth and rough offspring bred to 3 sires.  She was RB smooth from the puppy class at the ’99 CCA, and her daughter, CH Deep River Shelana Crystal Charm (Jackie Henson) was WB smooth at CCA ’03. Camille still loves her toys.  Photos of her are from this summer.
