Samson after winning a Group 4


Samson in FL


I just wanted to say GO SAMSON, and Congratulations Lea Bertsch! Samson was bred by Lea Bertsch and her daughters, and Debbie Price. He is owned by Lea. Samson, aka GR CH Scalloways Lion Hunter, took a trip to the Florida Eukanuba shows with David and Jennifer Harper, and has done great! The Eukanuba shows attract some of the top dogs in the USA. Last I heard, Samson has won two best of variety awards, a group 4, and I believe an award of merit. I am so happy for Lea, and proud to see how well this Texas born and raised boy has done. He is an all around lovely collie with an equally nice temperament.

Lea Bertsch hit it out of the park with the Eve/ Conan breeding that produced Samson. I believe there are now 10 champions (maybe more) from two litters produced by breeding Eve and Conan. I admire Lea’s dedication in seeing that these fine collies got their championships. Most of them also have their grand championships!

¬†Samson is not only an excellent quality collie himself, he appears to pass his quality on to his offspring! I’m happy that the genes that produced Samson and his pretty siblings are now incorporated in Tairis Collies through the Poppy/Samson kids- Patton, Willa and Maxi.

I’m hoping to have good news from the Nolan River shows in Glen Rose, TX next weekend.

We are also preparing for puppies sired by Patton, out of our girl Tracer in about two weeks.¬† And we will be whelping the litter sired by Patton for Lea’s smooth champion girl, Reba, the first of February while Lea is off to dog shows.
