Craftie is a crossbreed terrier that I rescued from the RSPCA back in 1995 .  She was picked up as a stray, no one had claimed her and she was about to be put to sleep.   Fortunately she came home with me. 

Craftie has been a wonderful little dog and is a VERY precious part of the team.  She has a great deal of experience with hounds, and they show her an enormous amount of respect, but also love her dearly. She appears on many photos as she accompanies me everywhere except Championship shows.  In her senior years now  {14 1/2 yrs  Sept 2009}  she shows no lack of enthusiasm for life as the following photos show.    A very special little girl.
