June 2017: Fëa gets a fourth in an agility championship final!
Fëa (meaning "soul" in Elvish, pronounced "Fay-ah") joined us in the UK in 2012 — she had quite the trip, making her very well travelled (plane, train, ferry, train, tube, train, bus...). Despite not having had a huge amount of exposure prior to her big trip, she coped very well and has adjusted to life in the UK very nicely.
We're letting Fëa take things at her own speed, but she's proving to be very trainable and is enjoying agility training, as well as getting to go out to all the shows with the rest of the gang. She has only done a very limited number of shows, but she's been winning at champ shows (including winning undergraduate bitch at Crufts 2013) and seems to be really enjoying things in the ring! She also started going to agility shows in 2014 and is now grade 7 — you can always tell when Fëa's running, as she likes to squeak!
Fëa is a real sweetie; she's making up for having been a kennel dog (she's now very much an indoor pet), and likes to make sure that she's got her people near her: she prefers to be squished up next to someone if at all possible. And you can usually find a (squeaky) tennis ball or two somewhere near Fëasie!
She had a lovely litter at the end of 2014 to our Dream, Finn stayed in co-ownership on the farm Dream helps out on and the remaining pups went to working homes of some kind (herding, agility etc), some with a showy sideline, so we hope to see them all around the shows for many years to come. They are all looking very biddable and drivey — exactly what you want in a future working dog!
