My name is Lisa Finnegan. I married and moved here from New York City six years ago with my husband James, and my Blue Merle collie named Conner. I have always loved collies. When I was twelve I told my mother that when I grew up I wanted to be a dog breeder. She said that wasn't a real career. So I put that aside and did other things.
My first collie Skipper was a gift when I was fourteen. He was a sable and white and he was very sweet. Unfortunately he died young. My next collie Lucky (Clarion Pied Piper of Brumfis) was a blue merle which introduced me to my favorite colour variation. When he passed I went four years between dogs since I lived in New York City but finally I couldn't bear to be without a collie and Conner (Clarion Conner's Stormy Sky) came into my life as an 8 week bundle of gray fluff. I met my husband James in Northern Ireland and three years later Conner and I were crossing the Atlantic for love.
Once we settled in we bought Wanda (Kynan She's a Diva at Oakmoon) from Kynan Collies as a friend for Conner. They were the best of friends and we decided that I should make my childhood dream come true. So we bred Wanda and started Oakmoon Collies. I hope you enjoy looking at our site and getting to know us.
