    This is the story of Ben, the useless Border Collie! Well, that's what his first owner, Gwyn Thomas, thought. The sheep farmer had suffered a mental breakdown at the time.

Ben had been her pet, but he was also supposed to be a sheep dog, helping his mum, Floss, to take care of the large flock. Unfortunately, Ben had been born with a weak back leg, making it almost impossible for him to control the sheep.

    Living with multiple sclerosis was never going to be easy. The phrase "I rule it, it doesn't rule me" was to become Lydia's benchmark. She clung fiercely to these words. They would booster her strength in the years ahead when at times, fear of the pain and its affects, especially the horrendous agony of an MS attack, would almost break her.

    The sun was just setting over the workshop, and the newly painted gnomes seemed to shine as the last rays of the sun shone on them. As Billy walked towards the door, he wondered if the brightness shining on the faces of his little gnomes caused him to think that one of them had winked at him? The old gardener thought he must be going crazy and shook his head before shutting the squeaky shed door behind him. As he did, the gnomes began to whisper to each other.... They had a secret they wanted to keep.
