collie eyes take nearly two weeks to open. How cute is this!
One of the last pictures we took  of Murphy before he went to Vermont with Sadie.  Luckiely we get pictures back of them.
My daughter Jamie playing with Sadie. It certainly helps to teach them what is good puppy manners.
Jamie with Enya who is maybe 3 weeks old!
Prince and Cassie is a pose we turn into a humanized moment of affection. Very sweet.
Duke as an ornery little guy. Flo says he is incredibily smart! See him on the grown-up page  with Courtney at a show.
My grandson, Logan, with the Susie/Winston puppy named Wesson who now lives in New Mexico with the Ginger/Winston puppy known as  Smith. Smith and Wesson are featured in other pictures as adults on the website.
Serina as a tiny baby. She is a white factored sable of Susie's with Winston. Serina is a lovely young lady who still comes here for "daycare" twice a week. I had her in video too.
Three tri girls from  two litters in 2007.
Our first litter in 2006.
Murphy and one of his brothers, probably Prince. Summer babies are so much fun to let outside for a romp in the green grass.
A Pearl and Winston girl, Cassie. She has tons of charactor- very attentive to people, friendly, and investigated everything with confidence.
One of my favorite pictures. Winston is gentle with the puppies. He wants to be with them and will bring toys to them. Here his is with Lindy from
A puppy on the day he was born.
Goldleaf collies playing in the not-so-gold leaves. These puppies are out of  Pearl, a blue, a sable/merle and two tris. They take a lot of time at this age, almost 8 weeks old, but they are a joy to have!
This is the heart marking on a puppy named.....Heart! 
I could hardly believe what I was seeing!  Valentine's Day was the last day I had her here. She flew out to WA to Barbara the next day.
One of Pearl's puppies and one of Ginger's, listening carefully. OK, they were looking but it was just the wind that popped one ear of each up in the wind. Hey, you take a cute picture whenever you can!
Zach with 5 puppies on a pleasant day in March, 2009. No green grass yet, but there's a red toy and a blue one!
This tri girl is older than the sables by one month. What a character!
Sometimes, taking a picture of a puppy at my feet  turns out just fine! She's so cute.
Ginger playing with her puppy.
This is Jamie and our very first litter in 2005. I  always feel extra happy when I see this picture.
This cute little girl will steal your heart!
She looks like Winston!  Our first tri-color puppy.
Clark found his reflection in the mirrow and tried to play with that other puppy.

When Riley was still with us, we took him to a park. That's where we got this "Lassie" picture.
We have a few blues and this one is exceptionally cute.
His name was Chief, Griffie, then Newly.

I hoped to get a picture of the puppies in a basket, so I gave them a chance to get familiar with it first. 

After these antics, I decided that was enough "basket" time!
