A Tribute to Sandpiper Collies

Sandpiper Collies was established in the mid 60's by Liz and Lorne Cook. The Sandpiper line was developed with dogs that were purchased from Steve Fields of Parader Collies and from Twin Creek Collies. Ch.Sandpiper's Superwave was the result of one of these breedings. Superwave held the title of top producing sire for many years running. He produced 50 champions. Ch. Twin Creeks Dark Tempest purchased from Twin Creeks Kennel was the dam of 9 Champions and the top producing dam for many years. These two outstanding dogs, produced many outstanding producers and winners also. Many of the current day pedigrees trace back to Sandpiper Collies. Liz and Lorne not only had an eye for a good collie but a great love for the breed, resulting in a winning line.

In 1981 due to the untimely passing of his wife Liz, Lorne entrusted us with the remaining four Sandpiper Collies: Ch. Sandpipers Superwave, Ch. Sandpiper's Good Times, Ch. Sandpiper's Sweet Season and Sandpiper's Satin Slippers.

Sandpiper's Satin Slippers was shown to her championship, then bred to Am.Ch.Twin Creeks Postscript, and produced four champions in that litter. Am.Can.Ch. Sandpiper's Solitaire was one of those Champions and she in turn helped produce, for Omega, a winning family of Collies.

A special thanks to Lorne for entrusting us with these great dogs.
