Well got through the weekend & losing the hour. Why do we still change are clocks as its a bit soul destroying to go back to getting up from bed in the morning when it is dark again.
Bobby has found a new home with Angela. Angela visited us on Sunday with her husband to see Bobby. They I feel are the ideal couple to give Bobby the one on one care he will love & they have taken on adult dogs before so understand settling an adult in with themselves. Bobby seemed to like them & all going well they will pick him up on the 17th April.
Millie is now coming off heat & Rollo returned home yesterday to my sisters after his working holiday with us. Millie will be scanned any time after 28 days from yesterday to confirm pregnancy & we probably will scan her & Bonnie at the same time as Bonnie is only a couple days behind her but at the moment today is still mateable so Oscar has worked his charm on her again. Oscar is proving to be a worthy stud dog & now it will be down to finding out if he has the fertility to go with the looks.
The weather has been glourious which makes everything a bit easier. The dogs are all looking well with just Lucy out of coat after her litter of pups but carrying plenty of condition if not to much condition.
Are young girls Smudge & Primrose are growing into lovely young ladies with Primrose being the show dog of the pair but Smudge is a beautiful strong really well put together spaniel who is a little plain about the head but as a brood bitch she is a fine type with great confirmation & colour. Both of these girls are such wonderful tempered dogs being very gentle & loving. Some of temperment is nuture but as we find out more about genes that a lot of the basic temperment of a dog is also genetic, so these means that Dad being of sound temper is as important as Mum's temperment.
Are young boy Reggie is doing fine & is a very funny little chap who is very adventurous & sociable. Rocco are young Toy Poodle stud dog will soon get a chance to prove himself as a stud dog with Lucinda hopefully coming on heat any day now. Rocco is a very elegant young boy with exceptional movement which is always commented on by onlookers when he is out. When he jumps over things its like he has springs in his legs as Poodles do make excellant agility dogs with their natural athletic stride & being highly trainable.
Got a couple lovely photo' of Primrose today looking at my 3 year old horse in the paddock by the house. We have not had a horse in this paddock since last year & Primrose I think was not sure whether it was a horse or a very big dog.lol
