My beloved Tip

Tip was the most fantastic girl, a border collie, as a prize for winning in trials we had our photo taken, as you can see Tip still is muddy, they gave me time to change.

Granasil Twist and Shout at Kenf x Granasil Tatie Bogal
Our Mr Miguel, the sweetest natured dog ever, did a lot of winning in the show ring, he had a lot of admirers who loved his antics, playing up to anybody who would watch him. All hands were made to stroke and caress him. We let Mr Miguel in his latter years live with an elderly couple just about a mile away, his delightful greeting of all the residents in the block of flats made him a firm favourite. When I go to visit even now people still shed tears at their and our loss, Mr Miguel had to be put to sleep earlier this year. Somewhere else on this site I have put an early photo of his beautiful face.

Lysandra's Basilic


Bankshill Rough Justice at Tanyo x Jemmawick Little Willow of Lysandra
Basilic is the sister of our Vicky and was a lovely little showman, winning minor puppy at Darlington, his first champ show. We sold him to a show home because of conflict with our other dogs but, against our wishes, he was sold on to someone who has used him rather more than we would have wanted. However one of Basilic's daughters is now living locally and is doing very well in heel work to music, how did I find out, we actually go to the same class?

lysandra's Vicky

Bankshill Rough Justice at Tanyo x Jemmawick Little Willow of Lysandra
Vicky now lives with her new Mammy, Pauline Featonby-Warren. Vicky broke her leg just before her first Crufts at about 10 months old, she rolled over of the settee onto her teddy, she had two operations, a plate and then a cage thing, we would not let them try again, her leg never went straight enough to show her. We decided not to have puppies from her but we held onto our sweet little darling girl untill she was almost 6 years old, Pauline needed a best friend, how lucky we all were when Vicky chose her as her new Mam, now she gets all the attention she should have (and demands)

Precious Zxanna now lives with her new Mammy, Annie. Zxanna is a very nice papillon, she did well in the show ring but did not care much for all the travelling and confinement at shows. We have got some beautiful children of hers including Lysandra's Zxarvina and Lysandra's Zxi Ptrian.
