My first collie from the beautiful Tokalan, Windcall lines, had the intelligence, the beauty and sensitivity to human feelings that I strove to emulate in the collies I have bred since 1968 when I purchased my first puppy. He saved both a baby from drowning, and a lost and trapped German Sheppard from the woods, and on his dying night, Christmas eve, brought his weary body down cellar steps to protect me from an intruder. He had several obedience titles, and has been a model for the many champions he proceeded that now are in countries throughout the world. My foundation bitch, Canadian champion Debhill Milas Ramona, was Vi-lee, Parader bloodlines.

I had a wonderful mentor, Lilah Bates, from Heathfield collies, a judge , collie, and horse breeder, who took me to England on a buying trip for horses and collies, where I saw for the first time English champion Bririch Gold Emblem, the crufts winner, who she purchased, and brought back to the US.

Most of the Americans had not seen a top English dog as they were not imported into the US but were bought by the Europeans and Australians who were willing to pay the high price demanded for them. Gold Emblem had the beauty, elegance and Intelligence I had been looking for, and I bred to him.

The Americans were not interested at that time in these pups. It was as though I had bred to a different species. I was not able to sell the pups as show dogs, even though they were beautiful but kept two for myself, which became top champions and champion producers, ch. Milas Natural High, dam of six champions including ch. Milas gold in the clouds, ch milas puff 'n stuff c.d. and milas Tessa,who was bred to ch clarion nightrider, a dog similar in type to the three offspring Tessa, who was the dam of ch. Milas formal sneakers sire of 14 champions. His famous daughter, ch. Milas Glory Bound, a Westminster best of breed winner and top collie in the east and top female in the country in 1986 were among some of the great offspring that came from this original blending of American breeding.
