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 took to agility so naturally and continues to surprise me with her ability to get us out of trouble during classes. She is the most cuddly dog we've ever owned and is always up for a snuggle.

I did attempt to do a bit of breed showing with her but she can't help herself when it comes to being examined and rolling on her back!

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 x grade 4 agility classes in one weekend in May 2017 and taking us to grade 5. In her first grade 5 competition in July 2017 she won the agility class and now needs 3 more wins to progress to grade 6.

She took a break from agility in 2018 to have her first and final litter to Minkynips What Yer Fink. Eight beautiful babies later and Boo did not take to motherhood well following an emergency C-section and spay. We worked hard to ensure they thrived while Boo took some time to heal and gladly her instincts kicked in and took over. Boo and her pups

 

I'm proud and ecstatic to say that all the pups survived and are now in sporting homes. Wanting to add some colour to the Bordertrix lines we used Percy and hoped for at least 1 tri-colour male. Well we had 4 sets of colours (none black and white!) 2 lilacs (1 tri), 2 merles, 2 merle tris and 2 blues. We made the decision to keep Flint, our tri-colour, blue merle, boy, who we hope will inherit the best from both his parents and continue to fly the Bordertrix flag.

We regularly see 2 of the litter and are in contact with everyone else, sharing photos, news and information as they grow. Flint has his own page here >>>

Boo has started the 2019 season with a couple of friendly competitions and is fighting fit to get her Agility Warrant Bronze this year. She has really proved to be a great agility partner, now 5 years old, I'm determined to do her justice this season!!!

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).
