| A Breed of Many Talents
| We love showing our dogs, which we do regularly, and have
enjoyed success in many shows around the country, including
of course, the one that everybody knows - Crufts.
| But that's not the whole story. Puppies that we've
bred have gone on to enjoy success in Trials,
Obedience, and Agility as well as the show ring.
Pictured below is Vimick Low Flyer at Mastercut
C.D.EX, Working C. in obedience only.
| Vimick Talk Later Speak a Lot (known as Diesel to his
owner Debbie Eales and the rest of his family) is 4 years
old and loves agility events. Not only is he a
beautiful and much-loved family pet, but he has also
achieved a great deal of success in agility competitions.

Fenborders (Jess), another obedience and agility dog who has
recently achieved great success. Just eight months
after giving birth to a litter of puppies, Jess won
Elementary Agility at the Scunthorpe Obedience and Agility
Training Club's Agility Competition. On the first day
(05.08.06), Jess gained second place in 27.17 seconds. On
the second day (06.08.06), she achieved first place in a
superb 26.67 seconds.

| In May 2007, Vimick Renaissance at Fenborders (Jess) won
out of Grade 2 into Grade 3 at Godmanchester Agility show,
under the watchful eye of judge Shirley Wells. Jess and
handler/owner Teri Dimbleby beat 175 other dogs in the class
in a time of 30.744 seconds in 'very' wet conditions, having
won out of Grade 1 only 7 KC Agility shows earlier. Jess
gained another place rosette and two other clear rounds that
weekend. She had also passed her Silver Good Citizen test
earlier in the same week. Jess and Teri have a busy schedule
of competitions throughout the coming summer months.
| Teri is also looking forward to handling Fenborders
Northern Lights (Welly) in agility competitions from the
middle of June, when he is old enough to compete. Welly
(Sire Vimick Walks Without
Sound, Dam Vimick Renaissance at Fenborders) has been
learning to control his enthusiasm for agility since turning
a year old and is raring to go! He enjoys working obedience
with his mum and passed his Bronze Good Citizen test before
he turned 8-months old. He is looking forward to taking his
Silver test very soon. Good luck Welly!

| Another achievement of which we are extremely proud, and
which demonstrates the beautiful temperament of our dogs, is
the use of some of our puppies as P.A.T dogs (Pets As
Therapy). One person who currently has two P.A.T dogs
of our breeding is Karen Scott. Karen and her two
collies (Bryn and Heidi) do various work raising money for
charity, as well as visiting people in care homes and
hospices. These dogs bring great joy and comfort to
many people and we are incredibly proud of them.
| For more information about P.A.T dogs, you can
contact Karen on: rach@Kdr-home.fsnet.co.uk
or see the Pets
As Therapy website.
| Another dog that we have bred has gone on to achieve
great success in her home country of France. Vimick
New Moon (Lucy) has achieved recognition by the French
Kennel Club (Societe Centrale Canine) as a working Border
Collie; a status that is granted only when a dog has
undergone a rigorous assessment and proven that she
has the skills required of a true working dog.
However, not content with proving that she is an intelligent
dog, Lucy has since gone on to prove that she has beauty as
well as brains, by winning a Societe Centrale Canine breed
show, and being rated by the judges as "Excellent".

| Lucy's Southern French Regional
| Since winning the Societe Centrale Canine breed show,
Lucy has become Southern French Regional Champion, and will
soon be competing for the French National
championship. Good luck Lucy!!
| Lucy's owner, Helen, is justifiably proud, and
"completely in love with a little black and white Border
Collie called Lucy"
