Fen was the first born of the 2008 Tap x Chip litter. She was the quiet and thoughtful puppy - as an adult is still thoughtful, but hardly quiet! Fen has a lot of energy and loves to do any activity, living to work sheep.
Fen is everything I love about the breed! My main farm dog, she works with a nice balance of eye and freedom, lots of joy and a thoughtful approach to new situations. And plenty of push! Whether fetching lost lambs from deep in the forest, or placing in the Top Ten at the prestigious Kingston Sheepdog Trials, Fen can be relied upon for most any task.
Fen suffered a shoulder injury in 2014. Though she made a full recovery, thanks to her veterinary & PT team at MA Vet Referral Hospital near Boston, the decision was made to retire her from agility so that she will be able to continue her work as a sheepdog, including competition, well into her senior years. I miss running Fen in agility - she was a wild ride! But of course, chosing sheep over agility for Fen was an easy decision to make.
