A different Post for us

Well, it is time for a miracle.  You get to see a picture of My Vickie.  However, it is an old old picture of her.
This is My Vickie and her very first Search and Rescue Dog "Andy"  Andy was one of the first non-german shepherds to be used for search dogs in the United States and he was amazing. (according to My Vickie.)
Once he was even on the cover of National Geographic World. 
(another story for another time)

The reason I am showing you this is because it has come to My Vickies attention that several 4 and 5 year old purebred collies are in need of new homes. 

Now she really only likes to help the homeless and lost but in this case she is hoping to get these sweet dogs into forever homes.

Here is a short short video introducing them to you.

These prescious dogs live in a place in Flagstaff Arizona. 

My Vickie has a special soft spot in her heart for collies and asked if she could do this blog to let others know they are available.  She understands the family doesn't want any money for the dogs, just to know that they will be in wonderful homes.
they have not been neutered or spayed yet and so you would have the cost of taking care of that and getting them to your home.

Please email My Vickie if you are interested at

Hi Bert, we hope your friends find another forever home. They look wonderful. Mum has a soft spot for collies too. She lived next door to one when she was little and always remembers it with fondness. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

They are beautiful and will have many folks wanting them. We had a Collie in the 70's named Shadow. She was a wonderful dog too.

Oh boy...I LOVE this post. Have I told you that I am OBSESSED over Collies? and dad just laugh at me because anytime I see a Collie my tail starts going CRAZY and I shake all over the place because I'm so happy to see them. My first foster home had Collies and mom thinks I remember them.
