Our Girls  

Welcome to the Special Collies Girls Page, featuring our Matriarchs and their offspring. Although different in type to each other, we have combined their particular strengths to create our line. They have given us thrilling show wins, loving companionship and beautiful babies. 

I proudly introduce you to Jewel, Jazz and Sadie:


Ch. Special Jewel O'Th'North, n/e


(Nairne's Flame N'Fields of Sno,n/e ex Ch. North Country Gemstone)

bred by Laura LaBounty and Judy Griffith Gilland

"Jewel" was made possible by leasing her dam "Jenny" from my best friend, Judy Griffith Gilland of North Country Collies. I  knew "Jewel" was something special the second her mother delivered her. She grew into a gorgeous adult, turning heads and winning lots of cool prizes. She's also the most obstinate, moody bitch, I've ever shared my home with. ALL the food is her food. She shows when she feels like it. The younger dogs live in fear of her, while the cats adore her. She's the first dog I ever had de-barked, which didn't help much, as she loudly voices her opinion on everything from falling leaves, to planes flying overhead.  Jewel is the dam of Ch.Special Holy Cow, Ch.Special Gracie's For Me, Ch.Special Pride N' Prejudice, Ch.Special Ruby Rosewood, Ch. Special Sharp-Dressed Man and Special Wee Lass O' Storybook CD, HT, RE, MX.


North Country All That Jazz, n/e


(Spruce Meadow's Legacy x Oakhill Sunsational Design)

bred by Judy Griffith Gilland

"Jazz" had 8 points including a 5 pt. major. She hated to show, preferring the couch to anywhere else. "Jazz" is the dam of 6 champions: Ch.Special Lunar Eclipse, Ch.Special Quest For Camelot, Ch.Special Storybook Romance, Ch.Special Northern Lights, Ch.North Country Special Expose` and Ch.Special North Star.  "Jazz" is a grandaughter of Ch. Foxbride's McLaughlan and Ch. Oakhill's Kismet Anticipation. And yes, she is white-factored!

Windrew's Wisper'n Sweet Glory

(Xanadu Glory Days x Revelation Blacklace Affair)

January 4, 1994 - April 1, 2003
"Sadie" had a long and winding road toward her championship. After 2 CCA class placements, a Group 3, and several major reserves, she had to have an emergency spay due to pyometria and never finished. Sadly, Sadie passed away recently at the age of nine. 

"Sadie" is the dam of 4 champions from one litter: Ch.Special North Wind, Ch.Special Pretty Woman, Ch.Special RachLen's Dreamcatcher and Ch.North Country Special Delivery. "Sadie" is a grandaughter of Ch. Perry's Sundather Tradition and Ch. Napier's Black Tie Affair.
