We are two Blue Merle Border Collies and together with our master and mistress we live at cottages (click here) in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District. We were born just down the road in Monyash in the Spring of 2004 – so we really are local dogs. Our mother was very similar to Smudge but we never met our father (although it is rumored that he was the Milkman’s Collie). One of our sisters lives at the village shop in Ashford in the water (just down the road from us).
We have 25 acres of grounds to play in although if we are good (and no one is looking) we can wander into about 80-100 acres. We are not allowed across the road at the bottom of our front field so we have to stick to our fields and the fields out the back.
Our cottages sleep between 2 and 5 and all take dogs so there is always something going on and rarely a time when we don’t have friends to play with.
Our main duties are looking after the guests (especially the children), being in charge of security and making sure there is no food going to waste.
