Established - 1980
By Tina May

It all began in 1978 when my future husband, John, brought me a sable and white Rough Collie puppy. I had always wanted a 'Lassie' when I was small, and she was a much loved
companion to me while John was working nightshifts. Her registered name was 'Caprina Girl of Golden Sun '- pet name Candy, and although she had prick ears, receding skull and not a
lot of coat, she was very cute happy girl, but developed a lot of health problems when she was older including bad hip displaysia.

"Sheba & Candy'

In 1979 I brought a sable bitch from a Mr & Mrs Jarvis (Shantallows) who lived in Harwich. Her name was "Shantallows Follow That Star'- known as Sheeba. Her sire was Ch. Leepark
Glenbarry and she was to be my first show dog. I took her to some local shows and obedience lesson suntil during the mid eighties dog shows took a back seat whilst John and I
raised a family of our own.

I had also learnt to drive, so that when I resumed showing again, I was able to get to the venues by car, and not have to travel via public transport ie: bus or train. By 1990 (having had my affix re-insteated), I purchased another sable and white bitch with showing and breeding in mind. This was *Gemma', and she came from the Pelido kennel.

Gemma attended a few shows as a puppy , where she also took part in junior handling with my eldest daughter Nicola. When she was 2 years old I bred her with Damirayan Dream Lover at PELIDO , from this mating I retained a bitch namely Maqueeba Donna Daydreams :- Donna .

Donna was Crufts Qualified and my fondest memory with her was at EACA when she was awarded a 2nd in a big post graduate class from John Walsh (Joshren ) followed up with a worthy critique. I line bred Donna back to CH Pelido Italian Affair, and she produced a lovely litter to him, I retained another sable bitch in Maqueeba Amber Mist, (Ch Pelido Italian Affair x Maqueeba Donna Daydreams)

Amber exceled in front angulation & a long neck (which happens to be a point of the standard I like to see in a Collie) However sadly she did not breed on having had mated her on a few occasions she did not produce live puppies, but she had a litter brother (owned by Linda Philpin) by the name of Maqueeba Italian Dream at Tudorlyn “Spencer “ who won a CC an award of which I was very proud as his breeder.

In 1996 I introduced a Blue Merle to the kennel “Jay “ Pelido Sugar Moon at Maqueeba, she was a lovely colour merle with coat markings as described by the standard. She won well as a pupp , and the /highlight of her show career was as a junior when she won Res CC at the British Collie Club Championship show from Robin Serle (Surlson )

Jays first litter was to Cathanbrae Midnight Affair at Pelido, I retained a tricolour bitch this time, namely Maqueeba Holly Black, 1 of her blue brothers Maqueeba Blue Lance went to live with Brian & Gillian Hull (Lizmark) , The mating produced good bone and substance & correct colours too .

As Amber was unable to breed on I mated Holly to Ambers brother Spencer to keep a line with my foundation bitch Gemma, she in turn produced Maqueeba Shady Lady “Lucy “

Lucy retained the lovely outline that I had been aiming for, and had done reasonably well at the shows she went to gaining a few best puppy awards at open shows . However I felt I needed to sweeten the eye & expression in my breeding plans, And decided to expand further on bloodlines for the next generation, Hence I took Lucy for her 1st litter to Amalie Mild Affair , In December 2004 she produced a large litter of 9 all fat healthy puppies of which I retained 2 siblings A dog & a Bitch -Namely Maqueeba Mildest Dream -Lenny and Maqueeba December Dawn -Dawn .

I had been campaigning these 2 pups during 2005, I was pleased both did well & became Crufts qualified for 2006.

Now to revert back to the Blues Jay had a 2nd litter in 2003 to the well known tricolour CH Sundorne Spiritualist,
I kept Blue Bitch Maqueeba Blue Shimmer “Summer “however she was not a keen show girl , I had a litter from Summer .
