We continue with our next round of winners.  Who was this girl?

100_3011Her name was… ANYA!!!!!

Mumma was one of the sweetest collies ever to live here.  But who was the other sable girl who lived here?  Well, that would be Ellie, her daughter.  However, as our one friend mentioned a thrid Sable was here, although she did not stay here and that was a pup whom I loved… Annie.  So, we are counting Annie as correct also!!! These three winners will get linked to twice. 🙂  So, in this post and a future post we will link to them. 🙂

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Ours was nice, yet snowy and today the Allis B will come out and kick some snow behind again! woo hoo! 🙂

The collies had a thanksgiving meal and loved it immensely. Then, they went and were naughty as they could be until the eating sleepiness took over and then went to sleep looking like angels. 🙂

The night before we hit 12 degrees for a low and have had 6 inches and climbing.  I am still suffering from one ailment and hopefully that will clear up.  Work has been trying with cut hours and I am still looking for a Paralegal position with no luck yet.  Despite all this I am still thankful for what I have and I hope God will have mercy upon a poor sinner like me and help me through this. 🙂

I will try to get out in the snow and get some tractor pics, collie pics and more.


Our first winner guessed Anya and Annie and is correct.  Now this young woman is a spectacular mother who is raising one of the cutest and smartest little girls I have ever seen. I seem to think Bubba is a spittin image of her mother and when she grows up she will be a really wonderful woman like her mother. 🙂  BUMPY ROAD TO BUBBA is one of those blogs that you just can’t stop reading. I, like many people around the world have watched Bubba grow up and her mother go through the struggles, tears, stresses, rewards, joy, pride and love all good parents go through.  She is cherishing each step of her journey with Bubba as she grows up…. something all of us should do…. for a blog that is internationally a hit and will make you swell with pride, laugh with joy, cry at heartbreaks go to:



I Ginger love Bubba and mumma!  Visit them and say hello… OR ELSE!!!

Our second winner are two good friends from Floriida, Key West to be exact.  Dog Dad and Sherman, who recently had the wonderful Essex leave for the afterlife are friends of ours whom we have followed for years. We worried over them when the Hurricanes went through and have laughed and cried with them through the years.  Their blog is a treasure!  We read that there will be collie pup coming there in the future. We look forward to this… 🙂  To visit this collie blog which is highly informative and wonderfully written go to:



Three cheers for our Key West Collie friends!

Finally, but not least is one little cute dog we love to death named Cupcake and her mom who is one fantastic writer!  One of the best written blogs on the net with a lot of funny and interesting things going on you can’t miss this blog.  Cupcake is a genius who likes to act like she isn’t….. but being so tiny she has her fears.  We don’t blame her….. the world must be so big!  We love her being dressed up and when she wears horns it is a great moment.  Now her mom writes some of the best books and stories we’ve ever seen!  If you are looking for a nice Christmas book for a child one of her books would be great! 🙂  CUPCAKE SPEAKS is a beautiful blog you will not want to miss so go to:


Niamh, Sadie and TED

We love CUPCAKE and Mom!

Those eyes… when I first saw Cupcake’s picture the first thing that drew me was her posture and those eyes…… Oh my gosh its Hallie and lil Hallie in a lil body!  Those eyes burn with intensity of love, intelligence and something is going on inside that head that is much more than you expect.  As promised we begin to post about those who correctly answered the contest of name that collie.  While Dogdaz got it off to a great start with their close answer (we will be posting on them soon since they too came in with the correct answer!) the first to respond to our request for info was Cupcake and Genevieve so we start there.  YAY!! 🙂

Cupcake and Genevieve are two friends we love to visit on the net.  Cupcake is always so pretty and such a camera friendly dog that her pictures make us ooh and aah!  You can see her at;

Now Genevieve is a author and not only writes for magazines but also has a book!  Here is her author page at Amazon!  Perhaps this book would make a perfect Christmas present for someone you know?

Cupcake always says her brain is too small but despite this she got the right answer!!!!  Ginger thinks her brain is larger than she lets on!  We all agree!



As dad always says if Cupcake ever comes to our neck of the woods he would gladly adopt her (like Genevieve would ever give her up! LOL she is so cute!) and as you can see by her picture she is beautiful!   The closest we came to seeing her is when our daughter made a ornament of her and it was like looking in a mirror!

Do check out Genevieve’s book and Cupcake’s blog for it will definitely become a hi-light of your day!  Tell them we say hi!

Cupcake ready to go back to school!!!  Look at those eyes!  We are so glad you and your mom came through the storm and noreaster okay!


CONGRATULATIONS CUPCAKE AND GENEVIEVE FOR HAVING THE RIGHT ANSWER!!!  Everyone else who had the right answer please contact us with pictures and info you would like on your own victory post here at the Meadow! 🙂
