It is possible that it was an English collie also. I remember seeing what
the woman kept calling an English collie that she had gotten in England when
her husband was in the service. Very very different from our dogs. Still a
pup yet but very aloof ,not interested in a stranger. not frightened by all
the commotion at the event ,not any shyness. Just very regal. She was a
sable but I don't remember which exact color. It struck me at the time
because she insisted that it was an "English collie" like it was somehow
different from ours which I couldn't understand. Perhaps part of the sales
talk when they sell to Americans? Temperament was different however and it
was a lighter less heavily coated dog. It was about 20 years ago.
As far as the collies there used to be a type of sable that I didn't care
for that I would type as as clear sable-I think their kennel name was
Brandywine. There were two types of sable in collies- one had various shades
and one was just yellow. 40 years ago though... anyone have a copy of
Brandywine kennel owners book? Can't think of her name. It would be very
rare as it was a small printing at the time. Barbara Hollands
