A lovely update for Albey arrived in my email inbox a couple days ago. Albey is from our f1b Cavapoo litter we bred earlier this year and he is the litter sibling to Ernest and Lily who we kept from the litter.
Here are some photographs from today and another age comparison photo, Albey and I on the 8th of May, the 9th of June and the 2nd of July
It's so lovely to watch Albeys siblings growing up, they're all looking so well.

Thanks Heather for the photos and update. I don't know if you read the bit about the Lepto4 vaccine I wrote about on the blog Vets' vaccine alert. I was shocked that the guidelines are to not give this vaccine until 16 weeks old, because of reactions to it. Hopefully no long term harm, but I will not be vaccinating our pups with Lepto4 until 16 weeks old in the future.
Ernest and Lily are going along really well. Lily is a bit chunkier than Ernest. When they had their last jab, Ernest was 4.0kg and Lily was 4.2kg, so slightly bigger than Albey. Albey looks to have an even longer nose, which is good and what I was hoping would be retained from the Poodle bit in them all.
