I have owned Shelties since I was 13 years old and this gorgeous girl was my 13th Birthday present (still the best pressie ever!). Bramble was a fantastic dog who had a local fan club and was even allowed to come on school trips and go into all the local shops. She was 12 when we got Bracken but she taught her some manners and also how to get her own way! Bramble never competed to any level but we had fun dabbling in agility and obedience training. Sadly we lost her at 14 but we wouldn't be without a sheltie now, they are such a lovely breed.
