Welcome to the home of Tachnamadra Shetland Sheepdogs

We hope you enjoy your visit as you share with us our love for this delightful breed

Ch Tachnamadra Evisu - photo taken the day she won her 2nd CC and Best in Show at the ESSC Championship Show 2014
Just two weeks later at Midland Counties Championship Show she won her 3rd CC and Best of Breed giving us our first homebred UK Champion. 
The icing on the cake was when she went on to gain the Bitch CC at Crufts 2015 which was a dream come true for us.
Evie will now be having a well-earned rest and staying at home for a while apart from the occasional outing.

For full details and more photos of Evie from 8 months to date, please click on the photo to visit her page

Featured below is Evie's son 'Cruz' at almost two years of age

If you would like to know a little more about the joys and sorrows of living with these delightful little dogs, why not visit Sheltie Inspirations or 
Living With the Shetland Sheepdog pages which includes short stories written by sheltie fanciers worldwide who have visited my site
and were happy to share their stories with me.

" Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened" - Anatole France

"Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve
too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity."

My sincere thanks to everyone who sponsored me in my efforts to undertake the BUPA Great North Run in Support of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. So far you have all helped to raise £315 for the charity. If you would like to read a short resume of my day please click on the following link:
