Avalon's 5th BD.jpg




Following her youthful career as a successful show dog (see below), Avalon went to live with Stephanie on the NSW North Coast. The picture above was taken on her 5th Birthday, and kindly sent to us by Stephanie.


Most recently we heard from Stephanie at the time of Avalonís 10th Birthday in October, 2016. Stephanie reported Avalon was doing well, and attached the two pictures shown below.

Avalon as a young Show Dog


Avalon was a steady achiever in the show ring, being consistently awarded the best female of her breed.Highlights included her winning Best Junior in the Working Dog Group at the Tullamore Show on 11 August, 2007 and at the Tuggerah Lakes K&O Club show on 19 October, 2007. Below are a number of pictures of Avalon as a youngster, both in the show ring and at home.

Finally, our cute little girl is pictured below at just 7 weeks of age.





Before we decided on Avalon for her name, she was known as Brown Collar girl, and earlier puppy pictures of her can be seen in our Puppy Portraits pages and our general Puppy Photos pages.
