First a big thank you to all those who have contacted me on the blog and in my inbox wishing Jessica a speedy recovery. Feel a bit rude that I did not do this thank you on my last blog, better late than never. Lovely to hear from people over four years ago that had a pup from us, before I even had the website, still tune in, thanks for that.
Jessica is going great guns and is not in the crate at all now and the Elizabethan collar has been put in the childrens dressing up box. At night just to be careful she sleeps with Smudge in the living room, keeping Smudge company on puppy vigil. Smudge can go in with her pups as she wishes to, she is still letting her pups have the occasional suckle and enjoys playing with them and inspecting any one coming across the patio to visit my Mum in the annexe.
Also a bit of a belated Happy Easter for those who passover, pass through or pass out at this time of year. Many will of passed out over this weekend through alcohol intolerence and will of no doubt re-enacted the resurrection of Jesus Christ this morning or mid afternoon, painful isn't it. I'm just going to say one thing to you,"BANG !" serves you right, I have no sympathy because you did not ask me along. Lol.
Smudge's Cavapoo pups are eight weeks old today and tomorrow the first pup, Flora will leave us for her new home. Her little bag is packed ready for the off. The first ones to leave are the easiest to see go, as you have the others to occupy yourself with, its when you keep one on for a bit longer for someone when the rest have left, it gets a bit more of an emotional seperation. We have the second pup leaving next Sunday and then its not until just over twelve weeks the other four leave us, so plenty more time for fun and mischief before all this litter leaves us.
Just took a quick little video of Flora before leaving us, she had just woke up, so a little subdued.
Didn't think I had many photo's of the pups over the last few days, but unloaded the camera and was surprised by the amount of photo's on there. With several of the children also taking a snap shots of the pups, when they think they see a nice photo opportunity with the pups, makes for interesting viewing when I get to load them up on the computer.
Last, as I'm just going to get off to the river with some of the dogs and maybe some children ( milked all over the weekend and this is the first day of the holiday my husband and I have been home all day both together, so a romantic walk, if you can do that with six children and assortment of dogs), a lovely capture just took by my son, of Henry under the table behind me in the afternoon sun rays coming through the patio doors, probably dreaming of having a walk along the river, see dreams can come true, "come on Henry, race you to the river."
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
