Her name is a direct tribute to several things - our first ESS 'Joy' Sharneyford Patches; our Sabrina Ch Fraelighte From ADistnce and our favourite band - Joy Division where the line 'Touching from a distance' features in their song Transmission and is the name of the lead singer's biography.
May 2019 update
Joy's wonky tooth unfortunately did not correct enough for my liking for the conformation show ring so she now lives in Victoria with a family who hope to turn her into an obedience superstar! Fingers crossed - but she has the smarts and is eager to please so I feel confident she will shine in the sporting ring, rather than the beauty ring, which is great - following on in her namesake's footsteps.
