Donny & Elain

… at the Celtic Festival at Mornington Races


Donny was always a wonderful ambassador for Irish either at the very many family sport events he went along to with, or with any of the show ‘groups’ he was sitting with at a dog show.

He lived with different breeds – fell in love with one of Elain’s ‘Cresty’ bitches… they would curl up in a bed together, till she passed away. He was always very patient with any of the Border Collie pups, but always impatient to be taken for his walk.

As well as being a delightful personality to live with, Donny had a successful show career culminating with a Best In Group award at the Royal Brisbane Show Best In Group award.   

He is missed terribly by the Saxon family ……..
