Cadence Bearded Collies

Home of the versatile Bearded Collie



Should you, while wandering in the wild sheep land, happen on the moor or in the market upon a very gentle knight, clothed in dark grey habit, splashed here and there with rays of the moon; free by right divine of the guild of gentlemen, strenuous as a prince, lithe as a rowan, graceful as a girl, with high king carriage, motions and manners of a fairy queen, should have a noble breadth of brow, and air of still strength born of right confidence, all unassuming; last and most unfailing test for all, should you look into two snow clad eyes, calm, wistful, inscrutable, their soft depths clothed on with eternal sadness — yearning, as is to be said, for the soul that is not theirs — know then that you look upon one of the line of the most illustrious sheepdogs of the North.

— Alfred Ollivant, Owd Bob
