I have a longstanding association with the Collie breed. There has been at least one Collie at my side since I was 7 years old.
By age 10, I was showing in conformation and junior handling, and I continued in the sport through my early teen years.

I married Al in 1971. Two children, Al, Jr., and Anita, came along. We had a Collie when the children were young, but I had no time for dog shows. The situation changed in the early '80s with our purchase of a show-quality Collie.

Anita made her debut as a junior handler in 1984 at the Collie Club of America National Specialty Show.


CH White Cloud's Wild West Legacy (Vica)

In 1988, we aquired Ch. White Cloud's Wild West Legacy from Linda De Eulis, (Vica, see left), and in 1991 we purchased
Ch. The Meadow's Rainbow X-Press (Stuffy) from Linda Burns. These two females were our foundation bitches.

Stuffy produced five champions, and from Vica we received Ch. Classique Color Me Bad--her only offspring. Both foundation bitches' lines traced back to Brandywyne New Legacy.

What began as a personal hobby early in my life eventually blossomed into our family endeavor and passion.

Anita became adept in the training and showing aspects of the sport, and Al--hardly an animal lover in the beginning--soon realized that the Collies commanded a special place in his heart. He was, and is, a solid presence "in the wings," always there with emotional, physical, and financial support.




Anita is married to Matt Stelter of Wyndlair Collies. They are leaving their own unique mark, as a couple, on the breed and sport. They are both AKC Collie Judges and breeders of the 2011 top winning Rough Collie, all systems, and numerous Champion Collies.

Anita and Matt have two children, Landon and Lauren. Now we delight in seeing them walking in our footsteps, carrying on the tradition of loving Collies.

Perhaps Lauren will be in the show ring someday, retracing the path of her mother, Anita.






Our son and his wife have two children, Elexa and Christian.
They are also Collie lovers, always here to help socialize
our Collie puppies.










Dogs of the Past

These are dogs that we have bred or owned over the years. Either they have passed away or were placed in wonderful homes after their show careers. We don't believe in keeping a lot of dogs, as they are our pets, first, and show dogs, second. Yes, we are very competitive in the show ring, but they are primarily our pets.

We have produced twenty four American Champions and two Canadian Champions over the years with a very limited number of breedings. Our Collies have won at the National level, taken Specialty Best in Show awards, and have obtained obedience and herding titles.
