Bearded Collies (Beardies) are known for their intelligence and their close relationships with people. As a young child, showing and breeding bearded collies brought our family closer together and helped us get through some difficult times.
After my daughter, Carly was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and anxiety disorder and was unable to function in everyday life, she discovered Kovu, a newborn Beardie. Kovu's love, devotion and and companionship has helped her tremendously in her recovery and in moving forward with her life.
Beardies have been by our family's sides for six generations and remains an important part of who we are.
