Years ago on a walk going into what is called the Enchanted Forest this picture was taken. The two with me are Teddy standing and jumping up is Niamh. Niamh doesn’t get mentioned her a lot but before Trevor she was my once in a lifetime collie. But, Trevor proved there can be more than one. Niamh was brilliant, loyal and a collie who came and changed my life in many ways. Her father was a Champion and she had the longest fur I ever saw on a female. She had the herding instinct too for she herded the kids, the other collies and even herded the kids rabbits once. It was amazing to watch her use her herding skills. Most of all she was one person collie and that person was me. I always have loved dogs, but she was the first one I truly felt was my best friend. We had many adventures together and we had a lot of fun. She was regal in her bearing. The day she passed in arms was the worst I ever had…. all of our collies her have her name as part of their AKC name. Someday I perhaps will tell more about her here… but where would I start and where would I stop?
