Sophie pup

As a pup and as a young bitch.


Sophie came to us from Victoria as our second girl.

She gained her show title relatively quickly, often having the advantage of being a 'dark girl in a white lineup' helping her stand out.

She had many great wins including: Minor Puppy In Show BCC of NSW; Reserve Challenge winner Sydney Royal 1983 &1985 ; Multi Challenge Winner Semi specialty (Australian Working Dog Club NSW 1982 & 1985 and ACT Combined Collie 1985). Sophie was also a Multi Class In Show Winner.

She migrated across from the show ring to the obedience ring, where she did equally well, getting her CDX fairly quickly (giving her the Silver Dunbar award - for Ch & CDX).

Sophie also proved herself as a mother, producing Aust Ch. Crystalledge Heritage, Aust Ch Crystalledge Star Trek & Aust Ch. Crystalledge Novar, though we sadly lost Sophie soon after the birth of her last litter.

Many tears of joy were shed during her life time and though many tears have since tried to wash her from our memory, Dad knows that Sophie will be among the first to meet him at the Rainbow Bridge.
