End of an Era

Meg came to Treshnish in May 1996 (or 1997) as a fluffy bundle of Bearded Collie pup. She came from Strontian. She died on Friday 13th May 2011. Meg worked with Farmer - helping in her unique way on the hill, and using her invaluable skill in catching sheep - especially useful at lambing time. She barked on command during gatherings, and often without command at all. She put 110% into everything she did, whether it was caring for lambs or hiding in the long grass watching the sheep or Freddie the donkey who used to live here. An utterly irreplaceable family pet and friend.

Sunshine at times.

Farmer cycles. In the rain. From school to school, carrying messages. Warm welcomes from everyone so far.
