Photos above taken March 2015 when Tilly was almost 10 years of age - Tilly has now retired from the show ring, preferring to stay at home on the sofa or more often than not, my bed.
She goes crazy when we go to the fields, and keeps the youngsters in order ............see Tilly on our Past and Retired page.

This brings me on to Tula, (shown left at 8 months and right at 12 months), who my father nicknamed
'wild child' or 'NG' (naughty girl).

Tula has a huge personality and certainly keeps us on our toes, I am sure she is part human as she is constantly trying to tell me something!!

Thank you to Jo Hodges for this precocious little girl.

Tula June 2015 - back in beautful full bloom after having her puppies

Delighted that Tula had a lovely 1st in Limit Bitch at Leeds Championshiup Show - July 2015 - gaining her stud book number, thank you to judge Miss T Wilkinson

I was absolutely thrilled to bits that Tula won not only another lovely Limit Bitch class, and not only her first CC but with Best of Breed too Welsh Kennel Club 2015 .

Huge thank you to breed specialist Daphne Iley (Ileyda) for thinking so highly of her.

This was followed at our next show by winning another well filled bitch class at Richmond where she was award the RBCC at. Thank you to Sheila Hall (Sambreeze).

Loobylou - 3rd Minor Puppy Bitch - British Collie Club Championship Show - February 2015 - qualifying her for Crufts 2016 - Thank you to Judge Mr Tony Iley
Loobylou at 8 months after winning MPB at Collie Club of Wales Championship Show - April 2015
- Thank you to Judge Mrs Val Geddes

Lou loves to go to shows, I think purely because she doesn't like to be left behind at home, but is not a great fan of being 'in' the ring, unlike her mother
Below........March 2016 - what Lou likes best.........running, and she runs like the wind......and does a good job of exercising everyone else who chase her

Below back in the ring after a break at Bath Championship Show May 2016 - 2nd Novice Bitch

and Windsor June 2016 - 2nd Yearling Bitch qualifying her for Crufts 2017

Looby is sort of retired as although she enjoys going out with me to shows, she is more interested in running round a field rather than show ring. She shows no signs of slowing down and runs round the fields like a gazelle, great for exercising the others who chase her. Never say never, but I don't have any plans to take her into the show ring again.

Blown away to have received the above model at British Collie Club Championship Show March 2016. The model, made by Vic and Tim Griffiths is of three sitting Collies, one of each colour.

Without my knowledge, the Rough and Smooth Collie exhibitors had been plotting a collection for some time in recognition for the work I do on Collielife and some of the other breed club websites, including publishing show results as they happen, which I couldn't do without the help of my roving reporters. Thank you everyone involved.

Happy days.........Below photo taken March 2013 on a holiday in the Cotswolds
From left - Ted aged 5, Tula just 12 months, Tilly 7 (almost 8) and in the front, Tara 9.5 years old. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Tara in March 2015 due to cancer. She was the 'Lady of the Manor' and very sadly missed.
We lost Ted in October 2019 after a short, unexplained illness.
We said our goodbyes to Champion Tilly in March 2020 just a few months short of her 15th birthday.
