Pedigree Below


Our hopes of starting over in Collies were regularly dashed when interesting breedings either didn't take or resulted in all males.  When my long-time friend Richard Terry posted on the Texas list about a litter with eight girls, I answered rather cynically that finally someone had bitch puppies, and they were even close by, but they were the wrong breed!  He invited us to come see anyway.  At the age of only a few days, one girl with black wings caught my eye.  On subsequent visits that same puppy kept calling to me.  So after some extensions to our fencing, a new chapter began.

Her litter theme was varietal wines.  So River is named for the Russian River valley, our favorite part of the California wine country which produces marvelous Chardonnays.

River prefers to be a homebody, so her primary roles are chief bed-warmer and squirrel chaser.  She is very good at both jobs.

Precious River aged gracefully, and left this plane doing what she loved, chasing a squirrel.  Run free, sweet girl.
