Our beautiful girl’s name “Kes” was chosen from a character in the Star Trek series “Voyager” because it meant “intelligent and inquisitive”. We often laughed at the many predicaments Kes got into and wondered which part of her name she was displaying –but as a good friend of ours often said “she is VERY pretty though!”
Kes really enjoyed playing with her “sticks” –she would rather play than eat – so motivating Kes was easy (as long as there was a toy involved). She loved to sniff out and chase her “wabbits” (she never managed to actually catch them), go for walks with her best friends Bella and Georgia (Elsina Meyer’s girls), spend time sleeping on our bed or on her back on the lounge. The lowering of the tail like a drawbridge always gave us a sense of peace and happiness.
She experienced such wonders as running in the snow with Bella, herding sheep, travelling and visiting many places throughout NSW- in fact she was happiest when she was just with us. We loved racing home from work to THE best greetings from our girl, and the cares of the world just disappeared. In the car, we dare not stop petting her lest we get a tap on the arm, even if only to change gears! Her agility achievements speak for themselves in the all too short time we had together – we were both novices and learnt so much together. We were a team. A very BIG thank you to Elsina and the SCDTC instructors for all the training we received.
Kes was never destined to make “old bones” but she lived more in her 6 years than most dogs would in several lifetimes. Thanks to everyone for all their support and kind words, cards and gifts over the past few weeks.
Kes not only touched our lives but everyone who met and knew her.
We miss her terribly – she was our “Kes Kes the Best Best”
