Ch. Countryview Monumental 1993-2006
In 1995 we purchased our beautiful "Ricky" - Countryview Monumental. (Ch. Starr's Tailor-Made x Countryview Starr Search) Bred by Dan Cardoza & Pam Durazzano. After obtaining his CGC and TDI titles we went on to show him in conformation. "Ricky" earned his Championship in 1998. When we think of the perfect collie, we will always think of Ricky. He exemplified the standard with his light head, beautiful arc of neck, flowing movement and an expression that would make you melt. He was as majestic to us as the Blue Ridge Mountains.
"Ricky" trained us on how the standard should be read and is a major influence on our breeding program today. "Ricky" left us at the age of 13 1/2 in April 2006 and will always be missed.
