Nishmah was our first puppy.  We had owned rescue dogs (including several rough collies) but we had waited and waited for a pup until we had the time to devote to a youngster. It was a really special moment when she arrived into our lives.
Nishmah was a confident puppy, sometimes a little too confident but with maturity came a calm assurance and grace that was wonderful to see.


Nishmah competed in Working Trials, it wasn’t easy starting out as Gail was new to the sport and was learning with a breed that hadn’t been seen in trials for over 40 years. Together, Gail and Nishmah gradually learnt their skills and started to qualify and win.


Nishmah was a PAT Dog for many years; we visited care homes for people with dementia where they loved to feel her coat and talk to her –she, on the other hand only looked for the biscuits!
She gained her KC Gold Good Citizen award with ease and was awarded the Platinum Award by the Rough and Smooth Collie Training Association (R&SCTA) for gaining 12 marks on their Versatility Award Scheme. Nishmah is the only Rough Collie to have achieved this.


In her spare time Nishmah was also shown in the breed ring, mainly at Open shows where she did very well, she could really motor around a show ring!


Nishmah is featured in Stella Clarke’s book ‘Rough and Smooth Collies’ and also in the Breed DVD ‘Rough Collies’.
In 2007 the R&SCTA gave a special award to Gail & Nishmah for an ‘Outstanding Partnership’. This was the first time this award had been made. A real honour for us.
Nishmah was our shining star and we still miss our beautiful, graceful girl.
