We decided to get a new arm chair but after the last weeks activities in the chair, the dogs are pretty sure I have got them a rather up market dog bed.Lol
Photo's below of the dogs enjoying the new chair, I mean dog bed.
We also have just put in a new multifuel burner after the old one after 13 years hard labour decided to spring a leak from the back boiler. All our heat and hot water comes from the multifuel burner, so it was important to get it replaced as soon as possible. My husband proudly with a little help from me removed the old one and put the new one in himself. Showing his alpha male status of putting metal box in home with fire. Lol.
The dogs rightly consider its nice that the humans have replaced their old fire with one that seems to throw out even more heat than the old one. Henry below enjoys the heat from the new fire. We are also in the process of repainting the front room or should I say covering up all the childrens hand prints, hence the two tone colouring around the fireplace.
We have yet to have news of Smudge's, Primrose's and Belle's MRI scans. On the 25th we have Smudge, Primrose and Reggie booked in at Tavistock for their eye tests. Smudge is due any time now to come on heat, she has cycled 7 months and has gone 8 months. Seven months will be December but with it being forecast for a very cold winter, we may be looking at January. Although condition of the bitch plays a part , I also do believe that the weather and light plays its part as it does in other animals. Smudge's Mum Millie cycled every 12 months and came on in the early Spring and once went 10 months but we had a very mild January which is why I think she may of come on a bit earlier than her usual 12 months. This type of cycle is throwing back more to her wild ancestors, as most small domestic dogs come on heat, on average every 6 months.
In the last group of photo's tonight you will see a group of Henry with Dolly who is watching out the window, she likes doing this and I believe a few of her offspring also like sitting watching out the window like their mum.
