Tilly is our boxer/border collie cross bitch. This hard to imagine combination apparently came about when a pedigree boxer bitch escaped from her home one night in search of a bit
of rough, and found a night of passion with the farmer's sheepdog. The result is a dog with the body of a boxer but with a collie's nose (lucky escape there!) and classic black and
white collie colouring.
Tilly used to live with Sue and Alan in Bury St Edmunds, but sadly their new
child is badly allergic to Tilly, so they couldn't keep her and on Saturday
3rd October 1998 she moved in with us.
This is my favourite picture of her looking very sad, and cute.
Here's some more pictures of her, mainly taken one frosty but sunny
day in December 1998 in Milton Country Park, our
favourite place for walks. Click on the thumbnails to see the picture
Tilly died on 6th September 2004. You can read more about that here
