Border Collies: Deborah the beautiful

Mastamariner Tjorven

A very beautiful Border Collie

Born 11.11.99

Deborah is all we expect of our border collies, reliable, kind, tolerant, affectionate, gentle, typical and very beautiful.
Superbly bred to combine the best show and working lines, Deborah is a daughter of our top winning bitch Merry and the outstanding show winner Bekkis Kitemark (Geordie), Deborah is many times Crufts qualified.
A very special person, Deborah was the most beautiful of puppies and grew into an elegant, graceful, calm and confident lady, who charms and delights everyone who is lucky enough to make her acquaintance. Deborah is the mother of our delightful and adored sisters Ruth and Rachel. At home Deborah is the self appointed First Lieutenant of Mastamariner, checking that everyone is present and correct, making sure that puppies (of any breed) have a have a responsible baby sitter to take the watch when mum goes ashore and counting the golden retrievers out (and counting them back in again) at walkies time. Deborah, goes with the flow, working out with Scrumpy or taking it easy with Hercules always ready for a cuddle and always delighted to join in a wild game of ball in the sand.
