The legacy of Lassie continues!
Our Real Lassie puppy!
Direct descendant of Pal; the "Original" Lassie
Here's my story: July 16, 2010 was a special day I will remember always. I traveled to my friend's house to meet Bob Weatherwax, his daughter Mary, and my new puppy, Roxi.

Roxie is a direct descendant of the original Lassie, Pal (aka Lassie 1). Roxi is a litter mate to the next original "Lassie" line descendant chosen by Bob to carry on this wonderful line.  
His daughter, Mary, also chose one of these special puppies. Go to Bob's webpage and read about the introduction of the next Lassie legacy.

I am doubly excited because Bob chose a puppy from my breeding to carry on the line. So Roxi is not only a descendant of Lassie but a granddaughter of my Lady and Caesar. 
It's exciting to be part of the next generation of Lassie in so many ways!  

My dear friend Karen Pfeiffer is a published author of:  The Legacy of Lassie  (a must for the Lassie collectors) and  The Romance of the Collie: True Tales Of An Amazing Breed
It has very inspiring.stories in it about the "heart" of the collie. Page 112 in this books tells the story of another puppy I bred that went to a very special couple.

Karen also has her own company The Vintage Dog which sells Purely Natural products for your dogs. Jon Provost (Timmy in TV's Lassie) is the leading spokesman for this company. www.thevintagedog.com  Jon and Karen will be at the 2011 Collie Club of America 125th National Show promoting their company. I will be at that show also.... and I can't wait!

Bob and Hammer at their first public appearance
at the Western North Carolina Film Festival
In November 2010,  I traveled with Karen to the Western NC Film Festival.  It was an absolutely wonderful weekend!  We were Bob's assistants that weekend, along with our friends, Trish and Jeannie.  While at the film festival, Bob was beginning his next project.  The first day of filming happened at the festival and it was extra special to be part of that.  As I was helping Bob with Hammer's publicity photos, Bob gave me the most wonderful compliment.   Bob looked at me and said that he could tell that I knew what I was doing with dogs and I had a knack for it.... I just beamed!  It's nice to know that a professional trainer saw that talent in me!

First Day of Bob's new project!

Ten yearling puppies in a cabin, in the mountains, for the weekend.... PRICELESS!
