2017
A thought, turns into an idea, turns into a dream, turns into reality. In 2016 at our CCA National specialty in Kentucky the largest number of Millknock Owners gathered together at one time. As a surprise they made a spectacular banner with all the titled dogs to celebrate my 50 years in Collies and later a beautiful two page ad in the CCA Bulletin. There was cake, and speeches, and tears...In 2016 Twenty-two Millknock Collies earned titles. Five in conformation, and 73 titles in herding, agility, obedience, rally and barn hunt. Some 30 plus years ago I dreamt of breeding Collies that would conform to our standard and also be smart and athletic. Every dream is pure potentiality.
