|Many thanks to Lisa and Steve Finken, Tapestry Collies, for letting this wonderful girl come into our lives! Abbey has the true Collie temperament ... she loves everyone and is a kind and gentle girl, as well as being a supreme showgirl. Watching her in the ring with her own young handler - 8 yr old Lindsay Siflinger - always brings me great pride and joy!! Lindsay is a wonderful handler and Abbey responds to her gentle touch with all the love that only a Collie can bring!
On the way to her championship, Abbey has garnered many wonderful successes [and seven points] with young Lindsay on the lead ..including a Best in Sweeps at the Jacksonville CC [judge Karen Brewer], two BOV [over specials!]
Handled by her great friend and fantastic handler, Jim Holliday ... her incredible major wins!!
Her first time out as a special . June 24, 2006.. with Lindsay on the end of the leash, the dynamic duo went BOV
Abbey ... a true Collie Champion and Champion Producer!!
