September 1985 - May 1994

"The dog that started it all ....".
Toddy joined the family when I was 11, a wriggling crazy puppy that none of us really knew much about!

My parents packed us all off to join the local dog training class - where we made lifelong friends and there started a hobby and a half!

We enjoyed competing with Toddy at the local companion shows (or exemption shows as they were back then) and she won a very impressive collection of rosettes over the years.

Toddy was possibly the greediest and naughtiest dog ever - this was most likely down to our inexperience as owners - she ate the doors, the kitchen walls, half a caravan, a collection of fir trees, many shoes and even some homework.
