That was fast! It has been a challenge caring for 15 puppies- 8 in the Leena/ Jagger litter, and 7 in the Amber / Jax litter, but Leena and Amber were both great mothers and their puppies have been healthy from day one, thank God!
I have taken pictures of them all along but have had trouble finding time to get them posted. I am very pleased with the beauty and soundness of both litters. After the good eye checks, all of Leena’s puppies are now in their permanent homes. Susan debated between Silver Bells and Christmas Carol for quite a while before deciding to take Carol home as her show prospect. I am hoping at least three of Leena’s babies will end up being shown. I think they will be pretty enough that they deserve to be seen. So far it seems that Mr. Jagger was a great match for Leena. Thanks to Alma Metz for breeding Leena to her handsome boy Jagger (Scarborough’s Jagged Edge.) The Scarborough family is a lovely line of collies.
Here are some pictures of Leena’s babies at 7 to 8 & 1/2 weeks old.
I already miss the puppies that have left. I couldn’t let them go except I know they have gone to wonderful homes.
Thanks for this gorgeous posting, I’ve never seen collies with all this color…here in High Ridge (MO) we’re still sooo taken with white Feather( from Poppy and Patton- Tairis.)
Lovely photos…thank you!
Thanks Karen! I’m glad you love Feather. Her mom is definitely Poppy, but her sire is Gold Grand Champion Scalloway’s Lion Hunter- the number 1 collie in all breed competition in 2018 and 2019 by Canine Chronicle stats. Patton is Feather’s older brother.
I knew that! Samson- Feather’s sire and Patton Feather’s brother . Obviously I have trouble keeping it straight. It is a huge treat to see all the titles that Samson has. Thanks for listing them…really exciting.
All those puppies look mischievous.
