Due to physical limitations, financial issues, and some major family situations, I have to sell out my kennel. It is
with deepest regret that I have to announce that all of my dogs are currently for sale. Please see the "Dogs
For Sale" page of my website for pricing and dog info. Thank you for your understanding.

Below is a little song with very interesting
lyrics. I am putting it on my website to remind all of the chat room gossips, back stabbers, evil, greedy, mean, jealous and
deceitful breeders and critics of what they have become. They should all look within themselves before criticizing others.
I am no worse, no better than all of the other breeders out there. I do not harrass them, spread rumors and lies about them,
talk about them behind their backs or spread gossip about them or slander their names all over the internet and chat groups.
I have been fighting this scourge since I began breeding border collies all those years ago. I am still here, doing the best
I can breeding, and being here, for my dogs and my buyers. I have no shortage of buyers. This is my thumb up the nose
to all of you "breeders" out there who attempt to make my life miserable, and who have attempted, and failed, to put me out
of business, discredit my dogs, my policies, and my sole existence on this earth. Pay attention to these words. They describe
every single one of you. With special credits going to JC, MH, EP, MM, SB, KL, MW, LH, LC. Also to your friends
and your cohorts and any of you I may have forgotten to include. You all know who you are...and yes, those are YOUR initials
in case you're wondering. You have made me stronger, more dedicated, devoted, and more determined than ever to continue
breeding the best border collies around and to offer the best guarantees along with them! If you cannot, or do not care to
provide the same care to your customers and dogs, try and contain your distain. I will not change my policies because
a few of you disaprove of them, can't compete with them or are jealous of them. If I stepped on your toes, get over it! If
you don't think rescue has a big need in this world, then don't rescue. If you don't approve of me rescuing because I'm "taking
money out of your pockets", then you shouldn't be doing rescue, because that is definitely what rescuing is NOT about.
Or, as another one of you stated, "rescuing is stupid because it takes too much time and you can't make any
money on it", then you certainly should NOT be breeding dogs of ANY kind! If you think my prices are too high for my pups,
and you're mad because I sell my pups for more than you do, then take your pups to the vet for every single visit, starting
at 2 weeks, rather than vetting them yourself and pocketing all that extra cash. Put the time into socializing your puppies,
driving them in the car so they do not get car sick, letting them be handled by adults and children of both genders, letting
them interact with larger and smaller dogs and cats, bring them indoors and outdoors so that they learn not to fear machine
noises, etc. Then you can tell me I'm asking too much for my pups and that they are not worth what I get for them. I've noticed
lots of you who complained the loudest, have raised your prices by several hundred dollars from what you were asking
before I came along...and your care for your pups or customers has not improved one bit. If you don't like
the homes I have for my pups, too bad! I do! My buyers are conscientious and love their pups to death...and most send
photos and updates on them as well! You think border collies are just working machines, meant to live outside in small cages,
taken out and worked and then put back into their cages when you are done with them, you are missing out on so much more that
these dogs have to offer. And if you won't allow them to ride inside your vehicle or go inside your home, than you are just
plain ignorant! They are bred for working dogs, however, they are living creatures with feelings...more feelings than you
will ever possess obviously! I do not breed my girls on every single heat as at least one of you does. I make my girls skip
in between. I don't believe that because wild dogs breed every time they come in heat that domestic dogs should too. Wolves,
the first wild dogs, will only come into heat in the spring...once a year. They were created to breed only once a year. Man
has manipulated them into two heats a year for his gain, not for the health of the dog. That excuse doesn't
fly with me. Sorry if it bothers you to hear it! Domesticated dogs come into heat twice a year because they have been bred
to do so. They don't need to be bred on every single heat. I know several of you who breed your dogs over and over again,
never skipping a heat, until they are old and arthritic. To me that is cruel. I require a full animal history application from
each buyer considering one of my puppies. I care where my puppies go! I keep every one on file...forever! Most of you don't
even get any information on the buyers of your puppies at all! Anyone who has the cash can buy one. Money talks to you people.
Half of you are snobs who think only working homes are for border collies. That's like saying "Only green people can eat spinach"!
I don't care if they want to herd, play frisbee or agility, or go hunting with their dogs. As long as they are loving
them and taking good care of them, I don't care if they aren't just being used to chase sheep around! If you think it's stupid
of me to replace a defective pup claiming the person "just wants a free dog", then you have no place in breeding as far as
I'm concerned. I'm sorry if I make you all look bad, so bad that you have to spread rumors about me to make yourselves feel
like you're better than me. Just keep me off your email list! I really don't care what you think anymore! Oh, and I did pretty
much screw myself by requiring all of my pups to be spayed or neutered. When Katie died, I lost the best dog ever, with none
of her offspring to breed back to for her bloodlines. However, I am not trying to get my name all over the country as some
big shot breeder. I just want my dogs to be safe, healthy and comfortable. I do not want them being bred indiscriminately and
their puppies ending up in shelters and rescues because someone doesn't care or know enough to keep them from being bred!
(Hmmm. Kind of like some of you people!) In fact, some of you that talk about me the most, sold me dogs that are, or were in
my kennel. I don't think I'm wrong in requiring all of my puppies to be spayed/neutered. That requirement was implemented
when I sold a small female pup from Katie's first litter to a "vet tech" who didn't know enough to contain her properly when
she came into her first heat when she went to work. She left her on a screened porch and came home to
find her tangled up with a neighbor's mastiff!!!! Oops! Yeah, right. Then she calls me in hysterics wanting to know what to
do! I protect my dogs from the ignorance of some people, because I care. That's my business, not yours. I may have lost my
dear Katie, but I will never again have to worry about any of my pups whelping unwanted litters of unwanted puppies that
will just add to the rescue and shelter overpopulation problems! I don't regret that decision at all. And who are you all
to talk about it! I don't talk about you all by name, spread bad things around about you on chat groups, etc. Am I wrong
to expect the same respect from you? I don't believe in a LOT of your practices. However, I do not harrass you, spread
rumors and outright lies about you, or talk about you behind your backs.
There now. I've said my piece!
This goes out to all you members of the Border
This song is for you!
Harper Valley PTA
I want to tell you all a story 'bout a Harper valley widowed wife
Who had a teenage daughter who attended Harper
Valley Junior High…
Well her daughter came home one afternoon and didn't even stop to play,
And she said, "Mama, I’ve got a note here from the Harper valley PTA."
Well the note says, "Mrs. Johnson,
you're wearing your dresses way too high.
It's been reported you've been drinkin' and a runnin' round with men and goin'
Now we don't believe you ought to be a bringin' up your little girl this way."
And it was signed by the secretary,
Harper Valley PTA.
Well it happened that the PTA was gonna meet that very afternoon.
And boy, were they surprised
as Mrs. Johnson wore her miniskirt into the room.
And as she walked up to the blackboard I can still recall the words she
had to say.
She said "I’d like to address this meeting of the Harper Valley PTA.”
Bobby Taylor sittin' there and seven times he's asked me for a date.
And Mrs. Taylor sure seems to use a lot of ice whenever
And Mr. Baker can you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town?
And shouldn't widow Jones be told
to keep her window shades all pulled completely down?”
”Now Mr. Harper couldn't be here 'cause he stayed
too long in Kelly’s bar again,
And if you smell Shirley Thompson’s breath you'll find she's had a little nip
And then you have the nerve to tell me as a mother you think that I’m not fit!
Well this is just a little
Payton Place and you're all Harper
Now I wouldn't put you on because it really did, it happened just this way.
day my Mama socked it to the Harper valley PTA…
That day my Mama socked it to 'em at the Harper valley PTA.
