Mastamariner White Ensign

A truly versatile Border Collie

Born 16.07.01

Our long awaited Hercules and Deborah daughter. A granddaughter to Cider and Merry, niece to Scrumpy and half niece to Esther - a Mastamariner Border Collie through and through. Ruth is so good - gentle, sensible, happy, outgoing, friendly, eager to please and ... absolutely gorgeous. With a perfect father and a faultless mother how could Ruth be anything but wonderful?

Ruth has such natural balance and radiant charm that she is always a lovely subject for a photograph and an even lovelier companion.

Ruth was bred to combine all that we value in the border collie. Outgoing but sensible, friendly but gentle, obedient but not obsessive, keen but not hysterical, kind, trusting, willing and intuitive. Ruth takes everything in her stride, the world is her friend and her kindness and gentleness make her everyone's friend. A lovely daughter from lovely parents - all that we could wish for and a young lady of whom we are very proud. In May 2009 our good friend Anna Astrom asked - yet again if Ruth could join her siblings in Sweden as part of Anna's Mastamariners and this time we agreed.
