I called his name and he gave one brave yet lacklustre wag of his tail and although he was breathing, he was almost gone.

Then he was gone, leaving an empty kennel and a sickening, empty feeling in our hearts.

Flash was a small red and tan Kelpie with an enormous heart.  He had big ears and a one track mind when it came to the sheep, goats or occasionally wildlife in his sight. 

Good working dogs earn themselves a huge amount of respect and they become an extension of the family.

RIP Flash, we are all missing you. x


  1. I love his pointy ears. He looks like he was such a beautiful working dog and I am sure he had a wonderful life with you all.

  2. So sorry for your loss... the photos are fabulous and a great reminder of a wonderful dog. :-)

  3. So very sad but the legendary stories will live on, and I'm sure bring smiles to faces for ever.

  4. oh love, i'm so sad and sorry for your family x

  5. Heartbreaking Jane, it leaves such a huge gap in your heart when a mate leaves you like this. I still look for my old girl every time I go to work cattle and have to pull myself up when I realise she's not going to come. A good dog doesn't even need words, they just know what you want, when you want it, and off they go, they live to work, and when they go there's a huge hole in your heart.

  6. He looks like he was a very fine dog, Jane (those ears!), and will leave great memories. Sending love x
