Fynn joined our family in early 1998. I will never forget the day she was born, she was the only bitch in a litter of 5 . We were at John & Jacqui's visiting, and Maggot (Skew and Fynnís mum) started to whelp. I must mention at this stage, that I was waiting for a bitch puppy, well... four puppies and 4 hours later there were no signs of a bitch puppy! At this point things were looking desperate.
We were all out in the field doing a spot of training when Jacqui shouts out of the bedroom window "ITíS A GIRL!" And so low and behold along came Fynn. Her kennel name translated means Oh Joyous Angel!! Something she most definitely isnít!!! But great fun she is. She is full sister to Skew from a repeat mating and the real baby of the family.
Fynn has also been a real star in the show ring. She too has qualified for Crufts on numerous occasions and is rarely out of the cards. She has had numerous Best Puppy in Breed, Best of Breed and Group placings, plus Best Puppy in Show (All Breeds). She has also gained her Junior Warrant. Fynnís highlight to date was winning the Res. CC under Judge Jack Bispham at the East of England Championship Show on 22 July 1999. She was also awarded Best in Show at the West of England Border Collie Club on 2 April 2000 under breed specialist Sheila Gay (Darian), plus many other awards, see her show results page.
She was also 2nd top puppy with the West of England Border Collie Club for 1998.
Fynn was Top Bitch with the West of England Border Collie Club for 1999.
Fynn was 3rd Top Bitch with the West of England Border Collie Club for 2001.
Fynn occasionally competes in obedience (when I get time!) and is a joy to work, and she loves every minute of it.
Our next litter planned from Fynn will hopefully be sometime during 2005, this will be her 3rd and final litter.
Due to somehow managing to knock out 3 teeth, Fynn has now been retired from the show ring, however she may make the occasional outing in the working classes.
Fynn is CEA/DNA tested normal CEA/PRA eye tested normal, hearing (BAER) tested normal and hip scored 7:4.
28 April 2005 Fynn gave birth to 8 puppies, 5 girls, 2 boys, her 3rd and final litter, for more information on this litter or her previous litters see our puppy index page.
