Clare Brett’s 16-year-old border collie Tess went missing from Krause Berry Farms on 248 Street and was last seen on Wagon Wheel Crescent. The dog and owner have had many adventures together, and she is asking if anyone in the area knows of her whereabouts.

Missing dog has had a lot of adventures with owner

From chasing bears to surviving going over a cliff, Tess is special to Clare Brett.

Editor: I am contacting you to ask if you would let the public know that  Tess, my 16-year-old deaf border collie who went missing a little over a week ago.

She went missing from Krause Berry Farm, where we live. I sing at the winery and drive the Percheron team there.

She was spotted in Wagonwheel Crescent in the early part of last week.

I know it’s just another dog story, but this is such a dear old girl who has had so many adventures. She and I survived going over a cliff in my car in 2002. She has flown up north with me to mining exploration camps in helicopters and tiny float planes. She’s chased bears out of camp.

She has been in movies with me, visited preschools, psych wards and old folks’ homes and been on stage with me at the children’s festival in Vancouver. She has travelled to school shows with me.

I am also known as Clare de Lune. I’ve been a singer for children for years. I sang in many Langley schools and did various community performances in the 1990s.

Tess is a tricolour border collie, and where other border collies would have white in their faces, she has grey mottled colouring which is called blue ticking, in a dog that isn’t a blue merle. She is in the small side and her fur is wavy.

I have haunted the area where she was seen but she’s gone a bit wild I guess, and the lady who saw her couldn’t get near. She may have been picked up by someone who could have thought she was abandoned.

I need your help to get the word out. Anyone with information can contact me at 604-338-6903.

Clare Brett,
