|Thank you for taking the time to visit our site here at Bayside Collies, my name is Christina Wiersma most of you know me as "Chrissy" with a former last name of "DeHaan" but I recently got married to hubby Jason Wiersma on August 5, 2006. I was born into the wonderful Collie Breed and have had them since I was a young child. My Mother Pam DeHaan-Ross of Lake Manor Collies started my career in the show ring when I was seven years old, and I am still at it today. I now work as the assistant to Mike and Marcy Fine of Overland Collies. Mike and Marcy have recieved the prestigious Breeders of the Year award for the last 5 consecutive years. I have thoroughly enjoyed showing, grooming and playing with their beautiful collies and plan on it for years to come. I have learned more than I could have ever imagined in the last three years working for Marcy, as far as grooming, handling, breeding, and yes of course...winning!!!
I couldn't have created this site without extending my gratitude out to my mentors, from my early years in collies, as well as my mentors of today:
