“Avery” was gorgeous when she was born and has continued to amaze us each and every day of her life. She began her career with 4th place in the huge BBE class at CCA under Marion Durholtz at just barely 6 months. As a yearly, she quickly picked up 2 majors and a group 2 before taking time off to have a litter by Ch. Twin City Secret Ambition (produced Ch. Wyndlair Sea of Secrets and Ch. Wyndlair Dunrobin Winsome). Avery came back out right before her second birthday to win her final 8 points undefeated from the classes and 4 group placements in 6 appearances. Avery’s specials career began in April 2006. Though she was only shown 6 months out of the year, she won 7 groups and finished the year #6 Collie in the Hawkins System. Avery attended Westminster KC in 2007 where she was Best Opp over a lovely entry of bitches. She took the rest of 2007 off to raise her litter by Ch. Southland’s Bowen Island (produced Ch. Taliesin Savannah & nr. Ch. Wyndlair Madison Avenue). In 2008, Avery came back at the beginning of the year for her final year as a special. She won many groups and four specialties including the huge Chicago CC under Barbara Schwartz. Avery also made it to the final cut in the variety under Tom Coen at CCA. Avery is now our treasured house dog though she may make a few appearances as a veteran at the specialties.
She is proudly co-owned and co-bred by Matt Stelter (Wyndlair Collies).
