Dentbros Lilac Wine (Ounce)

This is my baby girl. She arrived, just before midnight on 8th June 2017. A purple puppy! Her mum, Busy, is a special girl, so I knew that if I could, I would like to keep a puppy from her first litter.  When the litter arrived, the last one out was this lilac girl and I knew from the second I had her in my hand that she was mine.

Ounce’s dad, Sox, is such a lovely boy.  I know the breed lines he is from, so I was confident that he would have a great temperament. I was not disappointed; he is laid back, but also able to focus when required.

Ounce’s character

What a special girl she is!  When you own four dogs (and have owned another two before that) you imagine that this one will be ‘just the same’.  Wrong!  She is so sweet-natured, so engaging, so person-centred.  She is chatty and cheeky and funny.  She is absolutely delightful and I love her so much.  Ounce is very precious.

Everyone absolutely LOVES her blue eyes – they are certainly very distinctive! It’s not uncommon for Border Collies to have blue eyes, especially when they are a dilute colour or a merle. More information about Border Collie colours can be found on the Kennel Club website. Unfortunately for Ounce, her blue eyes are really light sensitive, so she struggles to keep them open in the sunshine! I’ll get her sunglasses one day.

In February 2020 she had her first litter of puppies – the Lovely Litter. She was a brilliant mum, caring for her babies but also playing with them.
