CAROLINE SLOAN, from Charvil, says: “My little Star is my best friend. I know that is clichéd but it is true.
“Her early years were far less adventurous than her current lifestyle.
“I acquired her at two years old after she was retired from the show circuit. She was a quiet, introverted, socially inept dog that had very little comprehension of play time... but that soon changed!
“With every passing day her personality began to shine and she is now a vivacious, playful, adventurous little scamp.
“She happily comes shooting (clays), attends horse trials (obviously not competing), chases pheasants and ducks, walks for hours through the Chilterns and has numerous doggy and human friends.
