Sh Ch Sankenali Carolina at Fayken J.W. (Imp Ire) - (17-9-2003 – 2-2-2015)

Tippsy was born on 17th September 2003. Her father was Sh Ch Tonkory Palmerston at Fayken and her mother; International and Irish Ch Sankenali Going for Gold. Bred by Maureen Murtagh in Ireland.

Her puppy career was outstanding, resulting in her becoming the top Border Collie bitch puppy in the UK during 2004. She gained her Junior Warrant title at just under 11 months of age and at just 13 months of age Tippsy won the Bitch CC at Driffield Championship Show. Tippsy won her 2nd CC & BIS in November 2005 at the Scottish Border Collie Club Championship Show. Her next show was Crufts 2006 where she won the limit bitch class and then immediately followed that with the CC and BIS at the Border Collie Club of GB Championship Show. Shortly after this club show success Tippsy won the CC and then BIS at the East Anglian Border Collie Club Championship Show and the CC at Blackpool Championship Show.

Since these achievements Tippsy was shown just once or twice a year gaining a further 2 CC's and also winning the prestigous Border Collie of the Year Competition in 2006. Tippsy had just two litters, the first produced Fayken Final Fantazy "Tigger" (2 Reserve CC's) and in her final litter (August 2011) "Elvis" Sh Ch Fayken I Am Legend & "Demi" Sh Ch Fayken Indecent Proposal. Tippsy was the Border Collie Top Brood Bitch in 2013 & 2014.

Sadly in 2015 Tippsy had to be put to sleep due to cancer. - I still think of my very special girl every day.



Tippsy was DNA tested normal for: CEA/CH, CL, TNS and Gonioscopy tested with excellent drainage angles.
