THE BOYS AT DEEP RIVER

Scout is a 3-year-old sable merle, tri factored, rough factored smooth. He stays at Deep River part time and with his co-owner, Nancy Parker, in SC part time. Scout finished from the 6 to 9 puppy class in four weekends with four majors, was Reserve Winners Dog and Best Puppy in Show at the 2005 Collie Club of America national, and is a multiple Specialty Best in Show winner. Most of Scout’s offspring are still puppies, but 8 have already finished, and several others are very close. He is producing beautifully so far.

Frost is a 6-year-old double blue merle and is rough factored. He is an amazing collie whose lack of vision and hearing (caused by inheriting 2 merle genes) has never slowed him down. He was able to climb stairs starting at 10 weeks old, is crate trained and leash trained. He and his co-owner, Claire Apple, are working together on carting and backpacking. Claire has helped Frost earn his CGC and his Rally 1 title! Bred to non-merles, Frost produces all normal merle puppies. He has sired 7 puppies (2 boys & 5 girls) thus far, 2 blue smooths & 1 blue rough are champions. His rough blue daughter was 2nd in the 6 to 9 month AOAC class at the 2007 Collie Club of America national. Another smooth girl has both majors & one other needs 3 pts. to finish. His rough son, Cordell, is here at Deep River, and will be shown soon in puppy class. We have a repeat of Cordell planned for the end of the year.
CH KITLEIGH CHARLIE BROWN RN, HSAs – CHARLIE
Charlie is a tri-factored sable who has sired one litter of 5. His sable smooth daughter CH Deep River Divine Naughty by Nature finished as a puppy with 5 majors. His sable rough daughter Deep River’s Joie de Vive has a major from puppy class & will be shown in 2011.
