Thread: Nev Allen says here I am

  1. #1

    Default Nev Allen says here I am

    Hey guys. I owe you all a huge apology for my rudeness. I have barged into this forum and failed in the basic nicety of introducing myself. I am sincerely sorry and hang my head in shame.
    As you have probably gathered I run a boarding kennel. It is brand new and is at Morayfield, north of Brisvegas.
    I was an insurance broker for 43 years and decided I would like to turn my hobby into a business and a kennel was the obvious answer.
    After marrying my sweetheart in 77, our first dog was a BC and it did not take us long to get into obedience and agility training and since then I have lost track of the number of dogs we have trained and competed with including hundreds at club training situations, both here and back in South Africa where we came from in 1995.
    My wife and I are founder members of Pine Agility Dog Sports club at Eatons Hill. We are both qualified agility judges in the ADAA camp.
    That out of the way, I stand before you, awaiting your judgement, and will bear my punishment stoically.
    PS - we are owned by 6 Border Collies and 2 Shelties. My avatar is our youngest, Fire. She is 5 months old.

    Nev

    Welcome, and you deserve your own thread for this, not being tacked on to the end of a banned forum spammer's thread.

    Welcome from another BC nut. Fire looks like my young one, Saffie - originally short for Saffron or Saffire once she matured into an elegant lady but, at nearly 2, she is still a cheeky little tomboy Saffie. Some photos of her and her mate Oscar over in the Border Collies thread in My Dog Groups. You can redeem your shame by posting some photos of your brood there.

    Hi and welcome Nev,

    Running a boarding kennel sounds like more fun than insurance broking, hands down !! How great it must be to see all those wagging tails every day

    Looking forward to hearing lots of your stories and don't forget the photos

    Did anyone notice that the headline after Lucky Lady had last comment read, Nev Allen says here I am by Lucky Lady? Just had a flashback of those tight pants and moustaches of the 70s... and it was Spooky.
