I was introduced to Bearded Collies by a friend over 25 years ago, having previously had gundogs. I watched her breed her litters of beardies and eventually ended up with my first bitch, a slate and white, became interested in obedience and later bred three litters from her. I also had a Rough Collie to keep her company and, after a gap, my second blue beardie Phoebe came along, and again she did obedience, went on to do some agility. Sadly she died recently but from her litter in 2011 I kept her daughter, Maddie, also a blue, who has now just had her own litter.
