Mandy-Su's Dogs

Tilly - Tear Around Tilly - 1994 - 2012 (16 years) - Grade 7

Tilly came to me in 1996 when was about 18 months from Pineridge Dog Sanctuary.  She was a a good family dog and a great teacher of agility to Hazel, my oldest daughter.

Her agility career took its time as I had two children, Hazel in 2000 and Connie in 2003, which limited the amount of shows and training I could do. However, I do remember qualifying for the Mini knock out when I was 8 months pregnant  with Hazel.  As each round got smaller there was less time to recover between rounds and by the final round I think people were on standby for an early labour!

Tilley retired at about 15years old as she had bad eyesight and hearing.  But despite her retirement she often came along to the shows to cheer the others on!

Whilst we had some hold ups along the way, I feel we have achieved far more than some would just dream about. This little stray took me places I thought were impossible goals, but still each year she took me further.  Perhaps this was her way to say thanks. We were always both on a buzz when we ran in a class, and were an amazing partnership. We may have taken longer to get there but it was always good when it happened. 

Well done Tilly x

Updated 2012:  It is with a heavy heart that MandySu had to sadly make the unenviable decision to have Tilly (Tear Around Tilly) put to sleep on 7th January after a short and sudden illness. 

Tilly was the epitome of what can be achieved with a rescue dog with many Crufts finals and Olympia appearances.  For a small terrier she has left a massive space and will be greatly missed.

Chester - Cheeky Chap Jester - (est 1997 - 2013)

I was Chester's 3rd home after he was found in Wales as a stray but he soon became a true "Essex Boy".

He was a Basenji JRX  and was approx 2-3yrs old when I got him in 1999.

He was trained to do agility BUT is not a willing worker! Being ruled by his stomach and always not sure when he will be eating again, the burger vans and dog stalls were to a greater attraction. Despite his aversion to agility he lived a very happy life on the farm eating what ever he could! Literally! He had a number of surgeries to remove unsuitable items from his stomach including small balls and toys.

Cleo (Senior) - Cleo's Scottish Flyer - 1994-2005

Cleo was my first Agility dog and was responsible for getting me 'hooked' with this agility lark! 

She was a great little dog and competed at Senior level in Midi. She was just a tad over 15 inches and when she started competing she did full height jumps (30"), as Midi classes were few and far between.

Cleo is pictured on the right with Chester.

  Flo - Flo Flo Quick Quick Flo - 15 Years

Flo came to me in 2003 when she was about 18 months old, I was Flo's 3rd home.

She can do agility but finds it hard to enjoy herself if she is asked to do something.  Her last home found having such a lively dog hard and tried to stop her being so lively, which is why i think she is the way she is and only runs around when you ignore her!!

She is a very lively dog and runs around like she is on e-numbers.

She comes along to Agility shows as a spectator and enjoys the exercise area a great deal - but no matter what size it is its never big enough for Flo!!

  Mimi - Born 2010 

Mimi is a Papillion.  She is Connie's first dog.

At 9 months she was diagnosed with Syringomyelia, a condition more common in Cavalier King Charles.  Each day is special to all of us as we are not sure how long Connie will have Mimi, but for now she enjoys life just like any other dog the same age and long may it continue!
