You were my Sunshine, my only sunshine,
You made me happy, when skies were grey
You’ll never know dear, how much I loved you,
Now my Sunshine has gone away.
I wanted a red dog, but got a chocolate. I wanted to learn agility – she took us all into grade 3. I wanted to breed – 54 beautiful dogs (so far) are her legacy. So much love given to so many people, because of her.
So many brilliant memories, such a great character, the epitome of a Border Collie and everything you want a dog to be. Such a happy dog, to the very end.
Sleep tight my Sunny bun, rest in peace. xxxx

Sunny was quite simply my dog of a lifetime. I had two Border Collies before her, both from my mum. She was the dog I chose, bought from a breeder, because I wanted a red and white girl, to start agility and to have a go at breeding.
Sunny was everything I wanted and so much more. Such a character! She had so much drive to play, to do agility and take on everything I asked of her.
Sunny had great drive for agility and obedience work. She achieved Gold in the KC Good Citizen Award a few years ago. In 2013 we finally started to compete in agility. We entered just one show and she won the grade 1 agility class in 25 seconds, beating the dog in second place by 6 seconds! She really flies round and absolutely loves it! We won into grade 3 in 2014 even though she had pups in the January. In 2015 she was a bit manic and we rather lost focus.
Sunny is now retired from agility, although she did compete in a ‘veterans’ class in (2017) and won, of course!
Sunny has a lovely temperament – she loves a cuddle and playing ball, teaching visitors to play fetch as soon as they arrive, no matter how old they are!
Celebrating Sunny’s birthday, with her singing!
Sunny was a brilliant mum to her 22 puppies and they have ALL become fabulous dogs. She had three litters: The Potter Litter in January 2010, from which I kept Luna. The Poker Litter in January 2012 and the Fairytale Litter in January 2014, from which I (accidentally) kept Busy.
