2nd March 2015
Thanks to Raewyn Mullan of Braemist Collies who let us use her boy Maverick (Ch Braemist Chance to Make Magic) to our own girl Boots (Ch Collievale Band of Boots) A lovely litter from which we got our special girl Buffy.
We had lots of fun showing Buffy in 2015 and in just under 6 months she gained 9 Challenge Certificates and several age in group wins. At the first show after turning 1 year old Buffy got the Challenge Certificate needed for her title along with her brother Xander so as of 5th March 2016 they can both be called Champions.
2017 was an interesting year with Buffy. She did another major coat drop so was not shown a whole lot during the year but every time she went out into the ring she showed us what a special girl she is and we love her more as she matures into a beautiful lady.
2018 and we brought Buffy back to the ring in February at the Tokoroa Canine Association shows still in half coat and she was rewarded with a NZ Bred in Group by Diane O'Neill. We are now looking forward to seeing what Buffy can produce for us this year to Atlas (NZ Ch Strathven Maker of Dreams Imp Aus)
2023 and Buffy is now showing she is a lovely Veteran in and out of the ring. She still loves to go to the occasional show and definitely rules the roost in our kennels. She has earned a great retirement but will no doubt still make an occasional appearance. At the Waikato & Districts Collie Club show she proved she still has what it takes being awarded Reserve Bitch, Reserve of Breed behind Wanda and on to Veteran in Show piloted by her favourite handler Rochelle. She is not ready to give up totally yet!
