PHREELANCER PHAITH HILL
Born 17th March 2017
'Jess' is a real character, our 'clown'...a girl with a great sense of humour! She's a complete joy to live with, a personality plus, she's so sweet natured yet a lot of fun and extremely bright. Jess will stare at you or 'paw' you until she gets the attention she wants and loves nothing more than the limelight... I love showing her simply because she loves it so much! She's incredibly loving and really does 'hug' you with all her might. Her favourite hobby is birds – she has not caught any yet but lives in hope!
Jess was just over a year old in this photo taken on the day she was BOB at The Collie Association open show under Mr Josh Blackburn. Jess' show debut was at The British Collie Club Championship Show where she went Best Puppy In Show under Mrs Birgit Hayward and Mrs Duna Jones. Her litter sister in Norway, Phreelancer Phantasia (owned by Lillian Olsen) won 3 CCs as a junior and her litter brother Phreelancer Phamous Words (owned by Mari Maria Palgi) gained his Estonian title.
Jess has had one litter to date (by Multi Ch One Extraordinary Blu di Cambiano) and her son Phreelancer Chill Phactor for Elshajo (owned by Eleri Bluck) has done us proud, winning Best Puppy In show at his first Ch Show, 'Pup of the Year' at the EACA contest in January 2020, obtaining his Junior Warrant and winning his class at Crufts.
I very often want to call Jess 'Grace' (and have caught myself doing it) as there is an uncanny similarity between them - although the two of them were only remotely related...
