Well the time is nearly here for Jake aka Little Brian, to leave us. Jake will leave us tomorrow afternoon and although they leave us, our care is still here for all our pups if needed.
Jake is the last to leave of Smudge's litter and he is now 13 weeks old and more than ready to find his place in his new family. Might be a watery eye tomorrow when this chap leaves, but I know he is so going to be very loved in his new home and is going to make a lot of laughter and if any tears, hopefully they will be caused more from laughter than sadness.
As we prepare for Jake to leave we have news from two of his siblings that are already settling into their new homes.
Kayla has just had her first haircut and Lynne sent me this lovely photo and thanks again Lynne and for all the other photos and couple videos you have sent me, that I have not yet been able to upload on here.
Next is a lovely little clip of Harvey on the London underground on a tube train, looking like he owns that tube train. Thanks Liza for that, with the rain returning this afternoon to North Devon, it brightened us all up here no end, watching Harvey looking so unconcerned by it all, travelling on the tube for the first time. Harvey will be a regular on the London underground in a weeks time, as Liza goes back to work with Harvey at her side.
All going well - I've attached a video of Harvey on the tube for the first time in preparation for when he starts work in a weeks time. He took it all in his stride and seemed really relaxed, everyone loved him and our day ended in queens park playing ball in the sunshine. This week we are off to the lakes and hopefully the beach - he hates the rain so I'll let you know how he gets on with water. He is perfect and no problem at all. I hope the family are well.
All the best
As I said above, the rain has returned here this afternoon, after a promising start to the day. This Sunday morning unlike the one before with the sun on my back, I walked the cows in with the rain driving against us, washing my face of the last remnants of my nights slumber, under a cloud filled sky, casting down a gothic light upon the land, and yet, beauty still abounds, even when the sun is not around. Although I would not mind seeing the sun a bit more often at the moment. Lol
Primrose 's pups are now 16 days old and all now have their eyes open to varying degrees. Primrose who normally is a picky eater is now eating like the proverbial horse. Good to see them eating really well when feeding their pups and her hearty eating can be seen reflected in the growth of her six pups.
