If there are no dogs in Heaven, then I want to go where they went.
is the ultimate partnership between dog and handler. It's a pastime that an
become an obsession. It takes time and devotion and the bond between dog and
handler is great. We are all part of a family that enjoys one of the most fun
sports ever. The loss of just one team member saddens us all. Take a minute to
reflect and celebrate the lives of the dogs and people who have left us.
Until we meet again...

and handled expertly by my sister Amanda Ellerton - also occasionally by her
husband Ray Ellerton - she scaled the heights by winning at Crufts and Olympia
and gaining many, many Grade 7 wins against the Collies. In the twilight of her
career, I ran her successfully in AnySize regularly winning despite the
tremendous drag factor of me running her!

Woody went to Rainbow
Bridge on Easter Monday after a short illness.
He was eight years
old and had only being doing agility for a couple of years. He loved it although
he wasn't very good, one 9th place rosette.
We spent Easter at
Norfolk Easter Show, where he spent the weekend in the caravan which he loved
and he got to chase his tennis ball.

Gay Tunnicliffe would
like her friends at Agilitynet to know that following a short and unexpected
illness she has lost Sapphire, her tricoloured Rough Collie. It was so quick
that it has been a great upset for Gay and all who knew her.
Sapphire loved her
agility and won out of Grade 1, ending in Grade 3. She would often sing/talk to
us especially when queuing to enter the ring or whilst doing her weaves at
agility. She absolutely loved cheese and would go mad for it, especially in the
caravan when we were camping at agility shows.
Gay bred Sapphire so
is very special.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge where our
much loved pets go when they die. At the Rainbow Bridge, there are beautiful
meadows and grassy hills where they can run and play together. There's always
plenty of their favourite food to eat, fresh spring water for them to drink, and
every day is filled with sunshine. All the pets that had been ill or old are now
restored to health and youth. Those that had been hurt or maimed are now whole
and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone
The pets we loved are
happy and content except for one small thing. Each one misses someone very
special who was left behind.
