i have two beautiful rough collies named Cassie and Crystal. they are both sisters. Cassie is a sable,white, and black. and Crystal is all white with a couple of brown patches on her. about six years ago is when i got my collies. cassie was my christmas present from my grandparents because they knew i wanted a collie. after i got cassie we kept her in the milk house for a few weeks and my grandpa said that she was going to have to go in one of the outside kennels well the next day my grandma told me that there was a couple more collie puppies left that were being avertised in the newspaper, so i asked my grandma if i could get one of cassie's sisters so that cassie wouldnt be alone. my grandma said that it was ok with her but i would have to try to talk my grandpa into it. so when my grandpa got home from work i asked him and i had to beg and beg and beg..and then he said "ok" so we went to get cassie's sister crystal. i still remember my reaction when i opened the box at christmas and there was a collie puppy with a ribbion with card on it saying " to heather love, grandma and grandpa" and i reamember that i started to cry because i finally got my christmas wish.
