*Benson was conceived from frozen semen
Benson ranks among the most beloved Collies at Rainshade Collies. His wonderful personality, intelligence, kindness, and terrific sense of humor consistently pass on to his descendants.
And Benson was a bit of a celebrity, as well. He and his litter sister, were the first Collies ever conceived from frozen semen in the United States. Benson’s dam was inseminated using frozen semen, long after Benson’s sire, Rainshade Marjo Great Spirit, was exported to Switzerland.
Benson produced many beautiful puppies from frozen semen, including Rainshade Blizzard of Awes, Rainshade Poetic Just Ice, and Canadian Champion Mareb’s Crystal Blue Persuasion, CD.
