What qualities and virtues have been contributed
by key dogs in the stud's pedigree? Comment on
important breedings in the stud dog's pedigree.
Mary Benjamin, Drifter's breeder has often told me
that Ch. Twin Oaks Joker's Wild contributed length
of head, flat, chiseled skulls, pretty eye, consistent
body type and excellent showmanship. Joker stamped
those attributes on his offspring consistently. Ch.
Twin Oaks Lawman kept the head qualities in his offspring
and contributed excellent expression and beautiful
body type with well-let-down hocks and nice arch of
neck. The influence of these two dogs really set the
look for which Twin Oaks collies are known. The bitches,
Ch. Sandpiper's Solitaire and Ch. Omega Twin Oaks
Smash Hit also had a strong influence.
