Thanks everyone for the kind words, support & patience after the news about Millie & Bonnie not being pregnant.
Tonight I have some lovely photo's of Roxy which where sent to me last week by Tracey & shows Roxy sunbathing & on night watch in the back garden. Tracey will be getting Roxy neutered next month as she will be around 6 months old & if you do not wish to have the surprise of an unexpected litter or the worry & mess from the blood that comes away from a girl whilst on heat from around 6 months for me is a good time to start thinking about getting them spayed. Thanks for the lovely photo's Tracey.
Tonight we also have an update on Little Poppy who is one of Roxy's sisters & their Mum is Lucy. Poppy is a very pround member of Mike's & Debbie's family & they say "she has massively rocked are world & we are so proud of her." I also hope to see Poppy this weekend as Mike has asked if they can pop in over the weekend for a visit to see Poppy's Mum & I look forward to seeing Little Poppy & catching up with what she has been getting up to. Thanks for the lovely photo's mike & hope to see you at the weekend.
May must be a month for visitors as Madeleine contacted me today about coming down from Leistershire on the 22nd to bring Oliver for a visit. Oliver is Smudge's brother with Millie being their Mum. This will be almost a Birthday get together as both Oliver & Smudge are one years old a few days after the 22nd. Looks like May is going to be fun catching up with everyone !

I have had Cavalier bitches spayed at 6 months with no coat change & in later life with coat change. I have had male dogs like my Pupster neutered at 6 months & he is seven with the most beautiful coat yet are beloved old Smidge was neutered after 1 years old & his coat changed. Coat change can happen after spaying or neutering a dog at any age it can be one of the side effects but fluffy coat or the risk pyometra I know which one I would prefer. Coat change after neutering or spaying can happen with any dog whether purebreed or cross. As I said 6 months is a good time to start thinking about spaying. Talk to your vet getting all the pros & cons. Then the choice when to do it is upto you. One thing you will not get though from spaying from 6 months is a litter of unplanned pups.
