About the Gathering…

The Gathering is held the third weekend in August at the “mecca” of Colliedom, Sunnybank, in Wayne, New Jersey. Sunnybank was the home of Albert Payson Terhune, renowned dog writer, Collie breeder, and owner. This magical place, Sunnybank, served as the setting for many of his famous dog stories. Unfortunately, the Sunnybank house was demolished in 1969, but nine acres of the property remain for the public to enjoy. Here you can see the graves of the Lad, Bruce, and Jean, as well as the graves of the other Collie greats like Wolf, Fair Ellen, Treve, and Gray Dawn at Champion Rock. Stop by the old puppy run, and relax as the Master and Mistress did in years gone by at the Lily Pool.

The most loved of any of the Collie Health Foundation sponsored events bring fans of the Master and Collie fanciers from all over the world. The festivities have been managed for over 20 years by our own Madam of Sunnybank, Gerrie Oliver. The first day is devoted to the Sunnybank story, Albert and Anice, and of course the Sunnybank Collies. Speakers bring the past back to life and the breeze brings us to understand the magic that is Sunnybank. Saturday afternoon may be devoted to clinics and Sunnybank centered events! The “Madam” hosts a wonderful dinner for all of her friends that is part of this glorious weekend. The Madam has a special cake each year to fit the occasion – it is always beautiful, but hurry to get a picture! Then it is off to bed to be fresh for Sunday’s activities.

Sunday brings us the Virtues Match, the Lad Memorial Match, and so much more. There are silent auctions, premium items with the theme of this year’s Gathering, and promotional items from CHF, plus exciting live auctions each day. Come join us, and hear the trumpeting barks of Collies that fill the air over Sunnybank once again.

Held by and for the benefit of the Collie Health Foundation!
