The last couple weeks I have not been blogging so regularily. I have had pups leaving & my children have been struck with a nasty viral thing which has meant high temperatures, cough & then spasmodic tummy pain because their glands swelling in their stomachs or as some say tummy flu. My Molly who is 3 has had tummy pain for over 10 days & finally now seems on the mend, so hopefully will catch up on my blog as I have lots of news from the pups just left to pups that left alittle longer ago.
Yesterday Alison contacted me who has Smudge's sister who's Mum is Millie. She has just started her first heat & they are going away. These things always happen at the worst time but as she said they will manage. Maddie their beautiful girl is the image of Mum & she is also so good & gentle being a bit of a poser, also very quick at learning just like her Mum & sister. Maddie I know has the best of homes. Alison & Ray really care & love Maddie & this is a big factor in a dogs life in making a valuable member of any family. Look forward to hearing from you again. Thanks !
News from Lucy's Cavapoo pups has been coming in since the first one left us just over a week ago. Some sleepless nights have been reported but with some support & hopefully useful advice all seem to be settling happily in there new homes.
Barney was the first to leave & travelled to Yorkshire sleeping most of the way stopping once for a pee. Barney though has taken a bit of settling over night but hopefully Victoria is getting through this & Barney is settling into the routine.
Big Poppy left next & she only travelled a little way with no problem & she seems to be settling into her new home & routine very quickly & has been quick to settle at night.
Next was Little Poppy. She travelled to Exmouth about an hour & a half journey. She got a little sick on her trip but has settled in straight away & is taking everything in her stride but Debbie & husband have had dogs before so are experienced in what to expect & how to deal with it.
We then had Albert leave & he travelled home okay being only a short trip away from us. He has cryed a bit to be left but a little advice & Kim useing her own intiative in changeing were his crate & pen are & they think they are getting him settled when on his own. She has said he is very sociable & loves playing outside.
Then we had Bailey leave. Another one who has gone to Yorkshire. Sue told me that he got sick a little about 20 minutes after setting off but then slept most of the rest of the way stopping once for a wee. He has been one who has taken a little longer to settle at night but they think they are getting him settled now on his own. Everything else he is taking in his stride & is proving to be a sociable pup to.
Sammy left this last Saturday.Rachael told me he got a little sick on the way to Somerset but then was okay. He was soon bombing around the place chewing their daughters fingers & toes. He seems to be settling on his own at night reasonable well.
That just leaves Roxy who will leave us on the 23rd February. Will, catch up more tomorrow as very late here with me.
