Welcome to Lassie, the World's Most Famous Dog!
Lassie's Home on the Web since 1995!

Lassie, The World's Most Famous Dog Facebook page and the companion website The Lassie Network at www.lassie.net is searching for a new owner. After months of indecision and reflection I know I can no longer provide the level of information and service to Lassie fans that you deserve. Life can change in an instant and I now need to focus my time on family and prepare for retirement travels. It's time to turn the baton to someone else to carry on. Serious inquires please contact me at JLNCollies@aol.com with offers.

What started nearly 20 years ago as a desire to work from home and be with my dogs has taken me on a journey I never could have imagined. I have been blessed to have worked with Lassie with both Bob Weatherwax and Carol Riggins, 4 Lassie's, 6 companies that have held the trademark (Broadway Video, Golden Books, Classic Media, Entertainment Rights, Boomerang and DreamWorks Animation), cast and crew of the show, media from around the world, fans from around the world (many that have become friends), and have been the proud owner of 5 Lassie line dogs (3 that surround me as I write this)

From the beginning the road has been rocky at times but preserving Lassie and rich legacy of the line dogs was worth it. To meet people at a Lassie appearance, from children to elderly, listening to their stories of what Lassie has meant to them, doing presentations and educating people on Lassie's history, and being part of something that provides pure joy to everyone has truly given me more than anything I have ever done to help Lassie on her journey. That dream of working from home never materialized, I've never made a penny and it has been a labor of love. I will always love Lassie and treasure the memories and friends made forever.

Thank you all- Joan

Time it was and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you- Paul Simon
