I grew up with parents who bred cocker spaniels in the 50's/60's. My first insight into our fabulous breed was an aptly named border collie x kelpie, 'Speedy', in the early 70's who would accompany me on the long walks to my horse stables and often tag along behind my horse on rides.
The first purebred border collie we had was a red & white male, bought for my daughter in 2001. We now have nine border collies within our family.
Being involved as a founding member and the inaugural secretary, in constructing the clubs constitution and other documentation, obedience, agility and conformation showing, are my most recent dog activities and I am very proud of the inclusiveness, growth and direction our young club is taking.
