Frankie was one of 6 bitches born in Darq's first litter. I'd wanted a black tricolour bitch for a long time and Darq gave me 3 lovely tris to choose between, but right from the moment of birth, it was always Frankie for me. Named for my late dad, she simply wouldn't allow me to choose anyone else. Every time I looked in the nest my eye always lighted on Frankie first. Quite by chance she's almost the double of her great-grandsire Darian Darqfire, my beloved Teddy, whom she adored :)

She's a very confident girl but a real thinker. She likes to make up her own mind about things, which promises to keep me on my toes, but her other side is loving & snuggly, exuberantly so to her chosen special folk and like her mother and grandmother, she has a high speed wagging tail!

My intention has never been to campaign Frankie in the breed ring - I know her superb quality, she's a beautifully made Border Collie, with truly wonderful and typical movement, exactly what I want to live with and breed on from (and she's had quite a fan club from day one). However at her only Championship show outing as a puppy I'm proud to say she won a large Minor Puppy Bitch class under breed specialist Sue Morley. Way to go Frankie!
