Blake was special from the beginning. He burst out of the gates winning all specialty majors, the first under legendary Collie icon Judge Billy Aschenbrenner. By 2 1/2, Blake was a CCA National Best of Breed Winner. Though a young special at the time, Blake could not be denied that day and glided himself into Collie History under breed icon Judge Pat Starkweather of the famed Glen Hill Collies. Blake was handled to Best of Breed at the CCA by owner Debbie Falk and was later campaigned on the East Coast by Tom Coen, winning every single specialty he was entered in. Blake was an pivotal sire, consistently producing beautiful expression, his effortless side gait and attractive crystal-blue color. Blake was the sire of 19 American Champions, including one of the top winning bitches in breed history, MBIS MBISS Ch. Aurealis Charidan Regina and is behind several of the breeds "greats" through his son, Ch. Countryview Admission.
