Ruby born April 13th 2009

Registered with the Kennel Club as Jackscrofter MyGem and bred by Chris Green in the UK. Ruby is registered with the CKC and AKC and achieved Canadian Championship at the Sault Ste Marie Show Spring 2011.

I enjoy competing with Ruby in obedience and Ruby loves it too. Her heelwork is really to die for!! She sounds like a puffing train as she stays close to me in heelwork sequences. Wonderful working girl.

Tay born March 10th 2010

Registered with The Kennel Club as Syanne Chimera Edition and bred by Ann Durie in Scotland, United Kingdom. Tay is also registered with the Canadian and American Kennel Clubs.

Tay came to BorderGem from Scotland in 2010 and he sired two beautiful litters with Ruby. 2018 was a great year for Tay and I because we qualified for the AAC Nationals in Maxville Ontario.

Poppy born 2011

Poppy is our rescue, a labrador x and a blonde! We first saw Poppy at my sister's house in October 2011; my sister helps run a rescue and had collected her from the local dog pound. We immediately fell in love with Poppy's soft eyes and the big grin she always seems to have on her face.

My sister still likes to sing the Sesame Street song when she visits our house, "one of these things is not like the others!"

From our Christmas litter born December 24th 2014 - Drummer and Tinsel:


Bred from Ruby and Tay, Drummer registered as BorderGem Little Drummer Boy is one boy that we kept from our 2012 litter. Drummer achieved Canadian Champion status in September 2015 and in 2018 we began competing in obedience trials. Drummer seems to have found his niche in this discipline.


Brother to Drummer from our 2012 liiter; Tinsel is registered as BorderGem Star of the Season. He is quite the comedian and a special character all of his own. He continues to enjoy life at BorderGem and play within our doggy family.

Misty born 2nd March 2014

Registered as Starside Hushabye Mountain, Misty gained her CKC Champion status in 2015 and her Grand Championship at Sudbury March 2017. Misty achieved her Pre-Novice Obedience Title in 2017. We have changed her disciple to agility in 2018 and this is going really well. Because of Misty expecting pups in October 2018 we have put the training to one side until the new year.

Piper born 19th March 2015

Piper from Ruby's and Tay's second litter is the newest addition to our doggy family.Piper is the sire to Misty's puppies. Piper achieved Canadian Champion status in 2017 and a 3rd in group placement at Sudbury Show. The judge complimented me on breeding a Border Collie that moved like a Border Collie should!!! Piper's movement and structure is why we chose him as a sire to Misty's pups.
