A little history …..
I decided when I was 11 that I needed a tri female rough collie. After searching, we found a breeder within an hour of us. Jackie let me pick from 3 of the tri puppies she had available. I decided to name her Dixie, Hailey’s Heart of Dixie. A year later Jackie introduced me to Junior Showmanship and I was hooked. Dixie never loved the ring but she never complained either and was such trooper until my visit to Southland.
I went to Southland with Dixie’s breeder, she was picking out a male from a repeat breeding of a spectacular litter. After arriving it was brought to our attention that there was another puppy, a blue boy, that was available. He came home with me as my first show prospect. Dillon turned out to be a phenomenal JRs dog. He was a great first dog, I so wish I had been able to utilize him as he deserved.
