Thanks so much stopping by my page and admiring my Brave! He was a truly special dog, with a wicked almost human like sense of humour, and a great talent for making me regularly making me " Humble Pie " whilst in the show ring. When I retired him he had more than 20 different titles, some official CKC / AKC ones, as well as some unofficial ones as well.

He had Conformation, Obedience, Herding, and Carting titles as well as having Pet Therapy, Pet Visitation , Canine Good Citizen titles too. He ruled everyone else in the house with "THE look ".....

He was the first of the three Heart Dogs I have been blessed with over the years. The 2nd was Trigger (another magnificent Tri) and the 3rd was my Lucky ( a beautiful rich red Pure For Sable). Luck is usually up as my profile pic. Two of the first blogs I wrote here contained a semi brief tale of his life, and I how I coped during that first horrible year after losing him.

There are also lots of photos and blogs about the current 3 Collies - affectionately known as Idiots 1, 2, & 3 - that I have now. If you fell in the need of a chuckle or two, feel free to drop in and have a gander around my page.

Have a great weekend!

I have heard the guifenisen thing before, but I was just reading (again) today that it is bunk.

Do you have fibro?
