She still loves going to the fields, and is usually the first in the van to ensure she doesn't get left behind, and quite often the last one back.
Oldies are so very precious.

Nothing better than a a birthday breakfast followed by a roll in your favourite field on your 14th birthday

Tiganlea Tomorrows Dream at Sablepark x Tiganlea Telle Amour

Tara was retired from the show ring after her appearance at Crufts (above right) when she was still a junior.

I had to say goodbye to my precious little angel on the 21st March 2015 - after a short, but incurable illness. Devastated doesnt come close to how I felt at having had her taken away from me without being able to say a proper goodbye, I felt cheated and wanted her to live forever, the house is a quiet place without Tara, even to the end she was the life and soul of the place and clearly very stoic as no one, even the vet, had any idea how poorly she really was.

Photo left was taken a few days before she gained her angel wings, and above a few months before, how I will always remember her, lying on my bed watching me dry my hair.

Tara was always so full of life, and such a comedian, I could never imagine life without her, now at peace with Gemma and Topper.

'Goodnight sweetheart, I will never forget you, its so quiet here without you, little Teisha will make sure the pigeons don't come in your garden, you taught her well........and now Bliss and Anya are learning the ropes too, no pigeon is safe within 200 yards of our garden and I hope you are watching over them..

If love could have saved you, you would still be here today........
Love you to the moon and back again. xx
