So I have this little Collie habit …
I should have seen it coming – my family is full of packrats and collectors. But it all started innocently enough when I bought my first 2 Mosser Collies – Black Amethyst Satin and Green Opal – at a fundraiser to support Sheltie Rescue back in 1999.
Those two collies sat on the shelf untouched for several years. Then shortly after my golden sable Sheltie passed on, I saw this Golden Opaline Mosser on eBay. It reminded me of her pretty golden coat and I just had to have it.
Not wanting to disrespect my plain, “little brown dog” sable Sheltie, this found its way into my house …
And I needed one to represent my mostly-white Sheltie … which to buy? I couldn’t decide, so I got two …
And so on, and so on, and so on. Hey – they’re like potato chips, I dare you to stop at one!
Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time researching my habit – there’s not much information out there, so I’m sharing what I’ve learned on this site. Still, I consider myself more of a fangirl than an expert and I do like to get my facts right, so if you see anything that’s been mis-stated, a color incorrectly identified or if you think of something additional that should be mentioned, please email me so I can make the necessary corrections!
And please follow the Glass Collie page on Facebook, for eBay listing alerts and more!
