Lightning Storm of Tollpepper AW(G) RL3
sleep well my precious girl
Pet Name : Storm
d.o.b: 29 Dec 2005 - 25 March 2019
Storm was our second Toller and was a fantastic ambassador for the breed. She was been headstrong at times, but would willingly have a go at anything asked of her. She went out beating but due to her enthusiasm for chasing prey didn't go out for a while, when she matured and had a more 'steady' nature she occasionally went on a 'walked up' shoot where she just had a ball, doing what she has been bred to do. She has been shown and did reasonably well but eventually she decided that it wasn't fun any more so has been withdrawn from the show scene.
In May 2009 Storm had six puppies (read about them on our litters page) and in April 2011 she gave birth to five more puppies (again there is more about them on the litters page).
Storm was a registered PAT dog and like Pepper is proved to be a great success with the people she visited.
Storm wass been awarded her Bronze agility warrant (May 2012), her Silver warrant (July 2012) and her Gold Warrant (September 2016) and moved to Grade 7 in Kennel Club Agility. Due to her age she retired from Agility and took up Rally where she did reasonably well when we got to competitions.
Storm enjoyed her retirement, but sadly she had a stroke which, whilst she seemed to recover for a while, caused her more damage than we realised and she left two weeks later when she could no longer stand up as her legs had failed. She is sorely missed.
