My wonderful border collie Jess who gave me and those who knew her (postmen, binmen and milk men the exception) many happy years.
We got her as a 5 month pup from the Border Collie and Sheepdog Rescue, Richmond on February 14th 1997 and at first she was a trial having very strong instincts.
She chased cars, sheep, donkeys and runners but with time and perserverance she became the perfect dog hardly putting a paw wrong she used to greet us with a bark which sounded like she was saying hello and whenever she wanted out she could almost say a walk. She was such an intelligent dog and will always have a place in our hearts she was 15 when she fell asleep on Sunday morning we woke up and found her lying there on the kitchen floor. Tears were shed and then our friend came down and said we could bury her in her field, we selected a spot and started digging and then the sun shone down making us realise what a sunny spot she was laid to rest in.
We will miss her but we know she hasn't truly left us she will always be there in our memories.
