o individual could complete a work of this nature without the co-operation of others, and I therefore wish to extend my heartfelt
thanks to all who have helped in anyway, whether in the supplying of photographs, information or proofing either the text or navigation of this site.
Although the number of helpers have been far too numerous to name individually, special mention must be made of:
Angela Harvey and husband Keith, WICANI without whose encouragement, proof reading, and checking skills, throughout many months, this work would never have seen the light of day.
Brenda Kennedy for her invaluable help with all the Smooth Collie records.
The Collie Association who have always allowed me free access to their considerable archive.
Iris Combe TILEHOUSE and Pat Hutchinson KARIBUNI who kindly allowed the use of images from ‘Rough Collies of Distinction’ and ‘The Rough Collie in Society’.
John Hamshere HAMSHERE GALLERY who always appears to be able to find previously unpublished artistic material.
The Serif Support Team for sorting out all my technical queries so promptly.
Finally Gayle Kaye, CHELSEA COLLIES & Collie Club of America archivist, who, quite unknowingly, provided the initial inspiration.
