First blog of the New Year and let's start with the first update for 2015 from Sarah, who has Chester from Smudge's litter born Spring 2014.
Hope you and your family have had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
Sorry it had been so long since I last emailed you, but you will be pleased to hear Chester is growing up to be a fantastic dog.
He has been with us now since May and I really cannot imagine life without him, he is an absolutely delightful companion. Everyone who meets him always want to take him home afterwards- even the judge at the village dog show !
We have had a couple of problems, an ear infection and he was a little nippy with Phoebe for a few weeks but it all has been sorted out.
He was neutered just before Christmas and he has sailed through it without a problem.
We meet up with Sarah who has Jake ( aka "little Brian") quite frequently, the boys just chase and play all the time.
I have enclosed a few pictures, one of Chester with Jake before and after clipping and then one in the recent snow- he loved chasing about in it.
All the best for 2015 and I hope Smudge and Primrose produce some more beautiful puppies for you this year
Thanks Sarah for your lovely update on Chester and glad to hear all is going well. Sarah's friend, also called Sarah had Jake from the same litter as Chester and it's great to hear that they get to see each other regularly and are good friends. Have a wonderful year Sarah and Sarah.
Last night my husband and me managed to have our Christmas present, a meal out. As I said on a previous blog, I was driving, so not partaking of alcohol until I got home. We had a lovely meal and without any alcohol I still managed to nearly impale a gentleman on a table below us with my cutlery.
The first time I accidentally catapulted my knife in his direction, it landed with such a thud, that it received the attention of most of the restaurant. Thankfully they laughed and kindly returned the knife and then I did it again whilst eating my main course, this time with my fork and again much laughter and one of the gentlemen on the table put forward a theory, that he thought I was some sort of assassin, paid for by the wife of the gentleman, it seemed I was aiming my cutlery at. I did manage to eat my dessert without a cutlery incident thankfully. It was lovely to get out and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and of course the company. We have eaten at 62 The Bank in Barnstaple over the past 17 years and have never had a bad meal there. If staying in the Barnstaple area and you enjoy good food and a lively dining experience, 62 The Bank is well worth looking up.
The photo below is me on returning home and finally getting my first glass of wine for 2015. The photo shows me with all our Cavalier girls, Ysobel and her daughter Primrose, Millie and her daughter Smudge, Dolly and Jessica who unfortunately in 2014 lost her left hind leg. Some of you may of noticed that I never seem to wear a dress or skirt, but not really practical if you're an assassin. Lol
Poundlane wishes you all a wonderful 2015 !
“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.”
