I got my first registered Border Collie as an early Christmas gift from Darren.  


Allie was 7 months old and was not working out as a stock dog.  She was much too soft and had absolutely no herding instinct.


She taught me so much about this lovely breed, and was the most forgiving dog i have ever owned.


Her gentle demeanor and soft expression were a drawing card to people.


She achieved her CDX with little effort, but found the UD ring intimidating.  After she achieved her OTCh we stayed in the Open ring for the rest of her career.  She was a consisten 196+ scoring dog.  She was a very solid ring personality and loved performing in front of a crowd.


Allie was also my first agility dog.  She was extremely insecure in this venue, but with much patience on both our parts and with the help of great training advice from good friends, she went on to a wildly successful agility career.  


Darren took over running her in agility in 1998.  Allie taught him the ropes and took him onto a long and successful career.


Allie passed to The Bridge on December 10, 2004. 


We miss her dearly, but know she awaits us there.
