GOLDIE

 

16/07/1990 – 22/01/1997



Goldie went to live at Tyagong Kennels in Victoria when she was 12 weeks old. She returned to Baqilodge when she was 4-years-old to begin her show career.

In the 8 shows she attended during the short time she was with me, her typical, sweet collie expression and excellent movement gained her Five Challenge Certificates – three with Best of Breed – and a Reserve Challenge in strong competition. One of these challenge wins was under collie specialist, Mr Kevin Evans, and another, with Best of Breed,was under an international collie specialist judge from Canada.  At this point she was just a few points short of her title and I retired her from the ring to be bred.

After she whelped her puppies she developed a temperature and cough. Two months later, it was discovered when we couldn’t contain the cough, that she had a very aggressive adenoid carcinoma. My vet was incredulous that she had managed to carry and whelp her babies. Even though she was unwell (we didn’t know how unwell at that point) she was the most fantastic mother and refused to leave her babies for a moment.

Goldie darling, it was all so unfair. Rest gently, my sweet one.

2003. The years have clocked on by, but our love and thoughts of you remain as strong as ever. Every time I mow the lawn, Goldie, I wish you were there to threaten the lawn mower – I have do to it all by myself now.
