Megan the sheepdog is preparing for her new life on a huge ranch after being sold at an auction in the UK for a record amount of £ 18,900 ($ 21,000).
The border collie travels from the UK to her new home in Oklahoma, where she will live with her new owner, oil and gas magnate Brian D. Stamps.
The two-and-a-half-year-old made the huge sum at Skipton Auction Mart in North Yorkshire last Friday because she’s from a champion family.

Mr. Stamps, 44, has become the proud owner of border collie Megan, raised from a puppy on a modest 100-hectare farm in the Northumberland countryside.
Last Friday she was sold for £ 18,900 by Emma Gray, 34, the shepherdess who had lovingly raised her in the British countryside since she was a few weeks old.

Shepherdess Emma is getting ready to say goodbye to the black and white Collie while she is preparing for a new life in about three weeks.
After selling for Friday’s world record money at Skipton Auction Mart, North Yorkshire, Emma did not let her disappear out of sight and Megan slept on the pillow next to her in a guest house.
Emma, 34, said, “I feel like I need to wrap her up after she sells for that price, you hope for a good price, but it was another surprise when the bidding stopped at 18,000 guineas.”
