Ottadale Border Terriers
Our Border Terrier Family
Tamalee, Kenzy, Piper, Tweed, Isla, WonderFul.
Narrabri Blue Margaritta ADX JD - was my first Border Terrier. Although Tamalee was happy to do agility, most of the time she didn't have the passion for it like Titian or Kenzy.
Tamalee retired from competing when she was 11 years old. Once retired she stayed home while I was away competing. Sadly we sad goodbye to Tamalee, Tubby Teapot, Tinkerbell, Turtle on 21/1/21, she was a few months shy of 18 years. Thankfully we got through lockdowns without any health issues. Her heart was like an ox and although she had dementia and was deaf other health issues helped us make the right decision. We all still miss her quirky personality.
Kenzy Windygyle Isla, ADXG, JDX, FD.
In 2008 I got my second Border Terrier, Kenzy. She loved everything, full of beans, quick to learn and gave anything a go, so I have begun to enjoy the sport again.
After being persuaded by a fellow agility buddy, we began with what is Kenzy's second most favourite sport...Flygility. A touch difficult at times with the long legged dogs she was drawn against, but she gave it her all and achieved two semi-final ribbons in under a year, along with a few points here and there. Also competing in the National team at the Fly Agility Nationals.
Then my world fell apart.
We lost Kenzy tragically in March 2016. It was the worst day of my life. I am thankful I have her daughters Piper & Tweed Star, they remind me ever day
of how wonderful my darling Kenzy was.
I was so lucky to have had her in my life, I miss her terribly and always will.
Ottadale Cheviot Hills ADXS JD - Piper is a sweet girl having her preferences to different dog breeds.
She competes in agility at Intermediate level, has her JDX, ADX Silver, we are aiming then for GOLD. But unfortunately due to Covid and all the lockdowns we had in Auckland we weren't able to achieve the Gold. Piper retired from agility at the end of 2021.
Piper had her fist litter of puppies August 2016 and did an outstanding job, she obviously has her mothers maternal genes. I bred her once more before having her speyed. She had three lovely boys, Archie, Stanley & Leonard that we are in touch with often.
Ottadale River Tweed Star JD, ADXSilver -Tweed Star is my first bred Blue and Tan. She is cheeky and very independent. Tweed started competing in agility October 2016. Tweeds pastimes are barking a birds on our property, swimming, tricks and doing dog gym. Tweed had her first and only litter in 2019, two girls, Meg & WonderFul (I kept). I had Tweed speyed as she had a difficult time with whelping.
Ottadale Isla St Claire - is the second youngest in our household. She is Pipers daughter, born in August 2016.
Very respectful of our matriarch Tamalee and other seniors –
Isla has a very sweet nature and loves cuddles.
Well actually what BT doesn’t? She has shown she can work well in agility but sometimes needs a lot more encouragement.
She had her first litter in 2021, even though a joyous time it was somewhat sad. The first born was stillborn, second was a bonnie wee girl who has turned into the most adorable BT ever. Bonnie, we see her a lot.
