SKYE


Skye arrived aged 15 weeks, given to us by a family who weren't coping with the dual traumas of living with a high-drive puppy and a young toddler.
Skye is from working stock and has a strong eye and work ethic. A real live wire and power-house, she trained up quickly, soaking up tricks and information with alarming speed. She was agile and very determined; if she set her mind to something she did it, however long it took to achieve. Skye is a delight to live with, the fun she gets out of living life to the full is most infectious.

In March 2006 Skye's first litter with our Dexter (Tarna Rufus Runner) was a singleton daughter Una (Kilnhurst Rufus Relay.) Her second litter of eight was born in January 2008 to Storm (AgCh Kapia Konquest.)
In September 2010, just two months after achieving G6 and her Silver Agility Warrant, Skye suffered a ruptured spinal disc which paralysed her back legs. Following seven months of careful rehabilitation, against the odds she made an almost complete recovery and at her explicit request, returned to the show ring in 2011. She was delighted to be back in competition and although her nearside hindquarter power and torque were diminished, with an adapted handling style Skye regularly ran clear and achieved a number of good places in G6Ag.
Now aged seventeen, Skye is very much retired from active life. She is enjoying the comfort of the sofa and the well deserved privileges of old age.
