Boo, originally named Dottie, then Chase by her first owners, was returned to us as she didn't like sharing the limelight with her family's toddler. I am so grateful that they made the hard decision to bring her back to us, she does demand a lot of attention and loves having dogs and humans to keep her amused. She slotted straight back into our home as if she'd never left us for 7 months and continues to make us laugh with her antics.

Boo is from Skye's miracle litter, following a diagnosis of gestational diabetes, we never really knew if any pups would survive. This is an extremely rare condition and I was very much left on my own by my Vets to deal with Skye's welfare. I researched what I could and had help from a very kind lady who had used Buddy on her bitch in 2013 and is a Veterinary Nurse. A strict regime of diet and exersise helped Boo and her sister, Spot, to survive the birth. Boo was Skye's second pup from the litter and they came screaming into the world six days early (which is a lot for dogs). They were small but both fighters and grew into beautiful, strong puppies, thanks to Skye's maternal instincts and devotion.

After a week I finally calmed down and relaxed into puppy worshipping as the worst was over. Skye was happy again, glucose levels were back to normal and we could enjoy the puppies growing healthy and strong with no adverse affects. I will never breed a bitch past six years old again as this is not an experience I'd ever want to repeat.

Boo was returned to us in November 2014 and moved back in with a carrier bag full of toys and heaps of love and affection. She has the most beautiful temperament and sense of fun.

I did attempt to do a bit of breed showing with her but she can't help but try and get the judge to fuss her. Maybe when she's older :)

So focusing on her agility career Boo is now in her 3rd year of agility comeptition, ending her first season by winning a grade 3 agility class then winning 2 grade 4 agility classes in one weekend in May 2017 and taking us to grade 5. In her first grade 5 competition she won the agility class and now needs any 2 wins to progress to grade 6.

Boo was rested over the winter and has started the 2018 season well with lots of high places, she has really proved to be a great agility partner!!!

Boo's work ethic is great for agility as she is very physical and strong by nature. Agility suits her well and she copes effortlessly with the obstacles. She is not really food orientated, a ball or tuggy is much more fun (and easier for me).

On Sunday 4th January 2016 we took part in a ScentUK Workshop run by Boo's Sire's owner, Heather Donnelly. We had great fun finding left over turkey amongst the boxes, luggage, bags, doing an exterior vehichle search and examining a patio chair for treats. Boo used her nose well but we need to work on her assertiveness, she's just a little too polite in her searching technique. This is definitely something I'd like to continue to do with her.

Boo will be taking a break from agility now to have her first litter to Minkynips What Yer Fink in late August 2018.

Expected colours will be black and white, blue/slate merle, blue and white, red and white, red merle and possibly any of those combinations as tri colour.

We will be looking for active homes for Boo's puppies where they can use their brains :)
