Our long-awaited second Collie Convention will be taking place on Sunday 6 October 2013 in Stratford-upon-Avon.

It will be a wonderful opportunity to indulge yourself in rough collie matters and perhaps some collie therapy for those of you who are currently without a companion.

Indoor venue available if weather is inclement.

Benji has landed on his paws!

Benji went to his new home in early May and, on our way back from holiday, we called in to see him.  Since then we've had a couple of great updates on the progress he is making.  Our thanks to Gillian and Roger for taking such good care of Benji - after rather a rocky start in life, it's great to see him so happy and settled.

Humble apologies that we've been "silent" for quite a while.   We've been busy caring for a few "needy" collies since the New Year.   So glad the lighter nights have arrived.  Chris and I are now managing to get out and about for "pack walks"; going out in a group is so much better than taking two or three on our own. 

We have a ten month old tricolour smooth collie bitch looking for a home.  Pleased to s...

Collie Convention 2012

Posted on July 24, 2012 at 4:55 PM Comments comments (7)

We've just added a new page to share news of our recent Collie Convention.  Held on Sunday 22 July, we were so lucky that the weather had taken a turn for the better.  Everybody had a fantastic day.  It was wonderful for us to see so many of our extended family in one place at the same time.  It was a great success and we're hoping to hold a similar event next year.

We're still here!

We had to say a sad farewell to two of our beloved foster collies in 2011.  We featured their stories in our newsletter, paying sincere tributes to their wonderful foster-owners.    Our rescue work would be a nightmare without the help of such kind and caring people.  Thanks Margaret & Norman for persevering with Rusty.  And thanks to Rita for being there for Sheena in her hour of need.

Just wanted to wish all of our members a Happy New Year and to apologise to visitors that we haven't updated our website for quite a while.  Once the fundraising season was over, we were kept busy with looking after a number of collies in need of respite and TLC.

Please check back in a few days and, hopefully, we will have got round to bringing the site up-to-date.

Take care.
