Well not so long ago I went to Canada and I stayed for 2 weeks with Sandi and Jim and I was able to see for myself exactly what Glasgowhill has to offer. After many hours of travelling i still insisted on going to the kennel and this is where my love affair with Solo began.  I just happen to turn round and there he was. I slowly just walked over to him as he lay in his crate and as i petted and loved on him i just turned and looked at Sandi and just said "Solo". I was in awe and from that moment on i made a vow that i would bring something of his to Scotland. Little did i know... i would bring Solo himself!

Solo is an absolutely superior collie of fantastic quality! He doesn't appear as typically what you would class as American or Canadian type... At first glance he does appear to be an attractive and flashy male but under all that flash his construction is beautiful! His movement is even better! Some American/Canadian dogs are very big and lack angulation  but as you can see from the pictures this is not the case with this boy. He screams breed type from every angle and when he moves he provides a motion picture of effortless floating movement coming from wonderful fore reach and strong  powerful well let down hocks! He is a complete breath of fresh air! He has a fabulous puppy outgoing temperament with a gentle nature. Never pushy or over excited. Well balanced in body and well balanced in mind!

Yes some might say he doesn't carry enough genetic diversity... but that depends on how far back you want to go. All collies are descended from the same dogs and yes if you trace this boy about 13 generations back you will find Ch Bririch Gold Emblem and his sire Ch Royal Ace of Rokeby and so on but the point is we are living in today not back in the 60's. My own bitches mated to this dog would be classed as an outcross  and so would many others depending on their linage. We do have similar lines that have been brought to the UK and mixed in with some very successful results all thanks to some very intelligent breeders at the Brooklynson Kennel. So who says it cant be done again?
