Our family live in west ukrainian town KHMELNITSKY.
First collie in our home was appeare in 1990, when the dream of a small girls came tru (that time we, Natalie and Svetlana, were 12 years old)
! We get equented with collies and from that time Collie World became a big part of our life:
we visited dog shows taking numerous photos of nearly all exponents, we found many pen-friends and knew many collie lovers. From that time the mountains of beautiful collie - pictures, interesting literature on collies from all over the world did not disepeare from our home and growing every year.
Our parents likes collies with us. All that we have now on dogs we have thanks to our mum and dad.
With dogs we knew World and people in it! Our first sheltie - favourite TINO - came from Germany with our very nice friends Beate Alexander and Erika Heintz. Thanks to them we visited Germany in 1997 and that marvellous trip became unbeliavable mirackle for us: at first we visited West Europe, at first we were at great SHELTIE SHOW with more than 150 best shelties from all the continent!
More than all, our TINO became
BEST IN SHELTIE SHOW !!!, and we received Crystal Cup as farest guests in show.
After such grandious victory, that did not do any dog in C.I.S. (!), about TINO and us knew all the world, numerous articles were in newspapers and magazines.
From that time every year we were in different countries visited Germany once more, Poland, Denmark,
England and knew more collie-sheltie-lovers, a lot of beautiful and legendary dogs!
