After loosing both Vincent and Butch in 1999 it became quiet in the house. Andy was a very promising youngster so it was clearly too early to bring in a new Curly. In England I met some Lancashire Heelers and this little dogs really stole my heart. So different from a Curly, I can't explain what it is (only Heeler owners will understand!) but every time when I saw a Heeler and when the Heeler looked† me in the eyes, I heard a little voice in my head whispering: "oh I want one". Well after a period of orientation in the breed I was lucky to pick up my Herbie. With the Foot & Mouth outbreak at it's peak my sister and I drove up to Lancashire and we brought Herbie home without any problems. I think the world of this little man, he brought sunshine back in this house.
