"Sky" really should be in the caring profession!   Whenever you need a friend she is there!   If you want a clown to make you laugh she is there!   If you want order in the ranks she is there!   If you want to be left alone - she will keep an eye on you from a distance!   She has a great presence and dignity; a real soulmate and very special dog. 

She just adores pups - anyone's pups.   She only had small litters herself but will look after any of the pups and even helped me to hand rear a litter for her grand daughter "Cloud".   The first time she met a toddler she was fascinated with it - she followed it everywhere with a huge smile on her face - as if to say "A puppy person - I must have one of these".   "Sky" can be relied upon to teach all newcomers and youngsters 'manners', taking her duties as alpha bitch seriously and is very well respected by the other dogs.  Although retired from breeding several years ago and enjoying her home comforts, she still keeps watch over the pack and is ready to discipline them like an old school Ma'am whenever the need arises, bless her!

"Sky" underwent surgery in January 2011 to remove a massive tumour.   The vet gave her just a few weeks to live and we prepared for the worst, vowing to take her to all her favourite haunts while she was still able. A year later she is still going strong.   She really is a remarkable, special girl.  When she was a few weeks old she was seriously ill and was on a drip at the vets for a week, but she pulled through against all the odds.  At five years old she had a serious operation and died on the operating table - she was revived and bounced back in time to enjoy a camping weekend that she was determined not to miss!  She is struggling a bit in her old age, but still enjoys a visit to the beach and insists on being included when we go out anywhere.   She is still very much the alpha bitch and rules the pack with an air of authority.  "Sky" is a wonderful companion and enchants everyone who meets her.

Sadly Sky went to Rainbow Bridge on August Bank Holiday Monday 2013 and she is very much missed.  Please see the tribute at the bottom of this page to a very special girl who will never be forgotten.

sky's last day out

20.11.00 - 26.8.13
August Bank Holiday 2013 was a tremendously sad day for me when I had to make that heartbreaking decision to let my beloved "Sky" go to Rainbow Bridge.  She was a remarkable dog and showed bravery and dignity right to the end.  I am glad that a week previously my daughters Aimee and Alison came to visit and helped me take "Sky" for one last walk on her favourite beach.  It was very slow progress walking across the sand but she was determined to get to the waters edge, where she enjoyed sitting watching the waves and people playing in the sea as you can see from the picture above.  She was a very loyal companion and soul mate and she touched the hearts of everyone who met her.  Run Free sweet Sky - we will always love you x

I have many beautiful photos of this special girl taken over her last few months, which I will add to this page in due course.
