Rittie’s first photo….

Today I drove to Weatherford to pick Rittie up from her breeder, Alice Inman (Schaladon Collies). Rittie was SUPPOSED to come home with me today, but instead, decided to foil my plans of getting her settled in here by coming into season over the weekend. So instead, we spent an hour and a bit taking photos and bonding, and then dropped her off for her liaison with the very beautiful Mac (who is even more handsome in person than in his Collies Online ad!)

I’m so excited about this litter. Mac is everything I wanted to see in a dog- beautiful, outgoing, sound moving. I think he and Rittie will compliment each other really well, and I adore his extended family- his sire, Sele, is Malcolm’s sire as well, and his dam, Harley, is one of my all-time favorite smooths. Please think good puppy thoughts for us. I’m a little sorry that she came in so soon- I was looking forward to taking her to the local collie club’s specialty in January. Oh well- hopefully, I will have my own puppy to debut in bred-by at one of the clusters next summer.
