"In the whole history of the world there is but one thing that 
money cannot buy - to whit, the wag of a dog's tail."
Henry Wheeler Shaw (1818-1885)




Balidorn Contraband at Breaksea (Bisto)
(CH. Potterdale Conclusion  x CH. Breaksea Enchantress At Balidorn)
Bisto was a sweetheart, the bravest most stoic soul I have ever 
met. Bisto's show career went off with a bang, winning BPIS at the Eastern 
Bearded Collie Club Ch. show from Minor Puppy. Sadly a few days later it 
became clear that there was something seriously wrong with Bisto, in a 
matter of days he was completely paralysed. A three week visit to 
the Queeen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Veterinary Hospital at Potters Bar, 
confirmed that Bisto had meningitis. We carried him into the hospital, 
wondering if he would come out again. Three weeks later when we collected 
him he actually rushed towards me, burying himself in my lap, it was a 
wonderful moment. The illness however had damaged Bisto's spine and some 
of the paralysis lingered in his right front leg. Bisto moved almost 
sideways and never put full weight on the right leg. In later yeas the leg 
was more or less carried, he would sort of flick it forward from the 
shoulder. At the age of 11 paralysis over took Bisto again and after a few 
weeks of caring for him in this way, his tail still wagging, still able to 
eat, (he loved his food) it became clear his quality of life had gone for 
good, there was no going back, and we had to say goodbye. However, Bisto 
had a great life and who knew when he was so ill at 8 months he would have 
another 11 years with us before things caught up with him again.
