Mid-Michigan Collies

Mid-Michigan Collies is the show/breeding kennel my mom put her heart and soul into. These dogs were her passion in life and was also the drive to function day to day even in the worst days one can imagine.

I inherited mom's dogs and kennel when she passed last February. I'm not sure what I'm going to do, follow in her footsteps and continue what she started, sell off the show dogs, or just keep them all as pets. Who knows. I sure don't.

But what I did do is bring my mom's web site back online today. My daughter Samantha designed it as a school project last year for mom. When mom passed Samantha could not emotionally continue to work on the site so we took it down.

Please go to browse around. It's not done yet, I need to update all the pictures, and add some dogs that I kept out of the last litter mom had.

I can say the content of the site is from the heart and I cried many a tear this morning when I was writing.


  1. So sorry to hear about your mom. I know exactly how you feel, I lost my mom and best friend too. We always had collies as children and I've had a few as an adult they are wonderful dogs and companions. Hope you figure out what to do that's right for you and your family.

  2. Very sorry that you lost your mom. She looks like a sweet lady from the picture on the website.

  3. Thank you Once Upon an Equine. Mom was a wonderful person after I became an adult LOL !!! Really - terrific person who was a friend to everyone. She is greatly missed.

  4. I do remember when you posted about your Mom and the collies, I think the website is a nice tribute to your Mom, I lost my Mom ten years ago, I know how it feels.....long time healing.


Happy Trails!
