Fiona unfortunately probably won't ever finish her championship because of her blue eyes, which is sad, because she is very nice.

I have intentionally stayed away from a lot of lines in the US because I don't think that the direction that most show breeders in this country are taking does the breed any favors, but I happen to love the conformation ring, I grew up with it, and I make it a game for my dogs. Its just another sport to me.
Phew! I was afraid you'd take it as a backhanded compliment, partial insult. I meant it as pure praise for your dogs. I wouldn't have said anything about you showing them, because usually I think "show BCs = bad" and "working bred BCs = good" (yes, I am that close minded, lol), but your dogs are amazing, and wonderful examples of a border collie. They opened my mind and impressed me so much I felt I had to say it.

Thank you so much! That means a lot. My goal is not to produce top winning dogs, but to get moderate dogs in the rings so that judges can see that there are still people who care out there.

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

I like this a lot! I'll be watching what you do with your breedings. I was seriously considering getting a BC pup (on several lists) but the working line weren't exactly what I was looking for and the show line had WAY too much coat to be working dogs without issues. I was hoping for a happy medium but gave up and went another way entirely. I like the looks of your dogs a lot and will echo the compliment about the nice balance you have going there.

Beautiful dogs, and I will gladly take Fiona off your hands.

Do you have a youtube channel or video of them working/training at all?

Riot looks like she has the softest coat, ever. I just love the look of that dog! Your crew is very pretty, and it looks like they're having fun with search work!

Riot is absolutely breathtaking! He's got a great moderate build and I love the shape of his face. What a crazy-good-looking pair =)
