"This monument was erected by the runholders of the Mackenzie County and those who also appreciate the value of the collie dog, without the help of which the grazing of this mountain county would be impossible."

Unveiled on March 7th 1968 by Sir Arthur C.B. Porritt, Governor General of New Zealand. "Beannachdan air na Cu Cacrach."
