Diva my little clown :) I do not think I can imagine life without her. She is always playing the fool :) Life without her about would be very dull indeed. In May 2008 she gained her Stud Book Number after getting a 2nd in Limit Bitch at the East Anglian Border Collie Club Champ Show. Diva loves agility and went clear at her second show. Her sire Junno has appeared in the TV series Jess The Sheepdog. In 2007 she had a litter to Sh Ch Pikkupaimenen Great Pretender at Locheil (Cruise).  We would have loved to have had another  litter from her but  as we don't breed very often, it meant time ran out and she was 8 years old all too soon. She is now spayed & enjoying her slightly older years while still playing the fool :)

 

On 7th November 2018 it was time to say goodbye, just a month short of her 14th birthday. Already struggling with arthritis, Diva began over the course of 3 o4 days, suffering from increased breathlessness. A small nodule was felt in her lymphnodes making us suspect something may well have spread to her lungs. The kindest thing was to let her go. Run free my comedy girl Xx

 

Thank you to Heather Turner for letting Diva come to live with us.
