Yesterday the last pup to meet his family from Primrose's litter got to meet his new family and will be called Jenson, sorry Nadine that Jenson was in sleep mode for most of your visit. In the week I was emailed by the Pearce family to be told, after meeting their pup last weekend, they had decided on the name Milly. So now all the pups are named , Milly, Maisy, Archie and Jenson. You can see in the photo above of them in a line that I actually woke them for this quick photo and in Maisy's case she opted for staying asleep with Milly putting in a yawn for visual effect. The two boys thou, seem to have got the idea of posing already.
These pups are now happy to adventure most every where and when waking up properly go to the door. Pooping is mostly outdoors already ,weather permitting. One thing they love doing at the moment is bringing in leaves from the patio and when a bit windy and dry enough will give chase of leaves blowing across the patio.
Not so many photo's tonight for the week , as we have had lurgy also known as a cold. Has left me a bit washed out but I am the other side of it now and will hope to get emailing tomorrow to people who have contacted me in the last few weeks. Sorry if I seem to not reply some, as I try to get back to every one and if I don't it may be as well to gently jog my memory.
Some nice captures of the pups and also a lovely capture one of my son's caught of Toby and a couple he took of me being slowly edged of the sofa by Toby, Jessica and Belle. I was sat there first but by the way I'm sitting on the edge you would not think that.
Just eat a lovely roast dinner after going to Tesco's today and as I passed the meat counter spied a nice piece of brisket. Rarely see a nice big enough peice of brisket these days especially in a supermarket but I was not the only one that this piece of meat had caught the eye of and whilst waiting to be served had a nice conversation with an older gentleman about food in general and we settled on me having two thirds of the joint and his wife and him having the other third. It certainly was worth the haggle. Used to eat brisket a lot before having children, as ideal to pop in the oven when you go milking in the evening, as it did not matter what time you got back, as long as in a pot in a little water in the oven on a low heat the later I got home the better it tasted. It is I think the cheapest joint of meat now if having beef but if cooked right it can be the tastest. Nearly forgot to say that the dogs also enjoyed our dinner to, with some of the juices over their food and a few bits of the meat. The dogs love it when we have a roast and will sit in the kitchen when I'm letting the meat rest, I'm sure willing it to fall of the side onto the floor right next to them.
“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.”
