This 6 hours DVD shows many famous dogs and wellknown Sheltie kennels in Britain during
more than 30 years.

has changed as time has passed. Thanks to the many responsible
breeders who through the years carefully have taken care of the
breed and kept the Sheltie up to the Standard.
Our main reason for making
this DVD is to give an attribute to the cultural history of
our breed. We hope old and new breeders both in England and in
the rest of the world will find this DVD worth seeing.
The DVD has been put
together from amateur films and videos and the quality could
have been better. We hope you will overlook this when we take
you into all the kennels and shows.

what some of the well
known Sheltie people said about the video:
Mrs Jan Moody
- Janetstown Shetland Sheepdogs - Hon. Vice President of the
English Shetland Sheepdog Club: "I just had to let you know
how much I enjoyed you video ! I have only just had time to run
it through and enjoyed every minute of it ! I was sure that it
was not 3 hours because the time went so quickly because I was
so engrossed. Well Done and I hope it will be a great success."
Davis - Monkswood Shetland Sheepdogs - President of the English
Shetland Sheepdog Club: "I love the video. You know it must
be unique. We have lots of slides & photos, but I don't know
of any film of the old breeders & their dogs. It is a most
valuable record of breed history in Britain & we must all
be very grateful to you for presenting it. Thank you so much
Mr Roy Pearson
- Edglonian Shetland Sheepdogs: "I just wanted to let you
know how much we have enjoyed seeing your video. On the first
viewing I was with Derek Smith (the show judge) seeing your video.
We both declared how much we enjoyed it. When Debbie come home
from work she put it on again and she did not have her tea until
late into the evening she was so captivated. ...On wednesday,
I thought I would just have a quick look at the early part again
and found that I was watching into the early hours of the morning.
Thank god I have seen and digested it, I cannot keep stopping
up all night at my age."
Dobson - Doshell Shetland Sheepdogs - Hon Secretary of the Mid
Western Shetland Sheepdog Club: "I have only had time to look at
just One Hour of your video and it had me nearly in tears ! To
see all of those lovely Shelties has made me realise what we
have lost in head quality. I know that there are some very good
heads, but so many have the two-piece and strong skulls. I think
you have dome a very good job and I am looking forward to seeing
the rest of the video."
Sheila Baker - Shemaur Shetland Sheepdogs - South Africa: "We couldn't
wait to start watching the video, and we must say you have done
a great job. We both had rather damp eyes seeing all the old
dogs and friends, Kari in particular, and sad to see as the video
goes those of us that are left getting older, fatter and more
wrinkled - though we must say you haven't changed too much Aud
Jorun!! It was so good to remember those happy days and we think
you have made a wonderful contribution to the history of the
breed - a unique record which can be seen in years to come and
thankfully those dedicated people like the Rogers and Herberts
etc. will not be forgotten. We was horrified when someone on
the List asked about the Riverhill kennel name. It doesn't seem
possible that such a famous kennel could be unknown to anyone
in the breed, but thanks to your video they can be brought to
life again for newcomers to the breed and their contribution
to Shelties will not
be forgotten. We thanks you
for acknowledging Maurice, and we both feel you can be justly
proud of your efforts in making this wonderful record of the
breed, which we know we will be watching often."
Thornley - Felthorn Shetland Sheepdogs - wrote in Dog World's
Breeders Note 01.12.2000: "Those at the ESSC show and the conference
will have heard about the video, which has been producted by
Helge Lie from Norway. Helge and his wife Aud Jorun have been
visitors to our shows since the early '70s and each time they
visit they record the shows on video. They also visited various
breeders at the same time, so the video is a wonderful record
of dogs and breeders from '72 to the present day.
those who are a bit longer in the tooth, it is a very nostalgic
trip back through the years, seeing well known faces like Patience
and Felicity Rogers, Joan and Beryl Herbert, Mrs Fishpool, Bill
and Rita Henry, Peggy Ure, the Moorwood family, who bred the
Sumburgh Shelties, and so many other breeders who have played
such an important part in the developement of this breed. Not
only the breeders but also the dogs.
visited Shelert when there were at least 100 dogs in the kennels,
all happily playing in the paddock, with Joan and Beryl pointing
out the many famous champions which are just pictured in books
to many people. The Riverhills can be seen running freely across
the lawns at Knockbridge, and the Rhinogs enjoying the freedom
of their lovely home on the moors in Devon.
were some shots taken at Lythwood with Derek looking very young
and dashing with a head of dark hear, while Phyllis looks equally
young and attractive in her mini skirt ! After nearly 30 years
quite a lot has changes, but sadly many of the dogs have gone.
This video is a great way of keeping us in touch with an important
era in the breed's history."
