How to describe Mandi? Let’s count the ways! Brilliant, eager to please, and very, very talented! Mandi’s accomplishments and awards are numerous and she put her heart into everything she earned. Mandi is one of the few Collies to earn an AWCA Lure Coursing title as Novice Courser!
Mandi also has AWCA recognition for Public Relations, having stood at every Southwest Collie Rescue event and helped in the evaluations of potential rescue adopters by making home visits.
With her strong herding instinct, Mandi proved herself to be a skilled worker. In fact, Mandi proved that Collies can do it all, and do it all very well, indeed!
Thank you, Arlene Starkey, for giving Mandi, and her lovely niece, Tess (Rainshade Tried and True), a loving and exciting home in New Mexico with endless training and fun opportunities!
Arlene Starkey, Mandi’s owner, writes:
“I will never be able to thank you enough for these two great Collies! I can’t imagine how I would live without each of these fine Collies.”
