I received this lovely update from Rhian for Mollie, who is from Smudge's litter born in February, 2014 and our Reggie is her Dad.
'Hi there Jane and family
So sorry we haven't been in touch lately, we have been away every month so far in our caravan. Mollie has had a brilliant time, I think she must be one of the most travelled dogs and has done a lot of the U.K this year. She is so good that we take her into restaurants etc and she just sits under the table and no one knows she is there until we get up to leave . We have packed the caravan away now for the winter (we are fair-weather caravaners!!) but are on the laptop looking for next year's holidays.
I have just finished looking at your blog again and am exhausted just reading it, how on earth do you manage to do everything, I reckon you deserve a medal. You even make your own Yorkshire puddings (not an Aunt Bessie in sight) am I the only one who cannot make proper Yorkshire puds? Don't answer that!
Mollie is still a wonderful dog and we can't believe she has been with us for almost 18 months, she is such a character and makes us laugh so much. She has a toy box and knows the names of all of her toys, we bought her a new one yesterday and have named him Mickey monkey and at the moment she will not put him down, Mickey has become her best friend already (have sent you a couple of photos). Wherever we go we are stopped by people who want to know what breed she is, they think she is beautiful, which of course she is and we have to explain where she came from. She is so very well behaved and loves learning new tricks, but her favourite thing of all is running on the beach and playing with other dogs, she truly is a credit to you. Thank you so much. We still miss our Bobbie but Mollie has kept us sane and we don't know what we would have done without her.
Keep up the good work, love the blogs and seeing how all of her siblings are doing. Sorry the email is so long!!!!
Best wishes Rhian Russ and Mollie Moo'
Thanks Rhian for letting me know how you are all getting along and that Mollie has really been such a help since losing your old Cavalier boy, Bobbie. Thanks also for your kind comments and giving Mollie such a wonderful and loving home.
