What a scorcher today ! The dogs & pups have been sprawled out and today Kathy came & reserved the last Golden boy from Cleo's litter. Lola left us on Monday & hope all is going well and have heard from Joyce who has Millie's Meg & all is going well. Sorry Joyce for not yet replying your email.
It does make life a lot easier with the pups when the weather is good. The Taw Valley that we live on the side of looks stunning now like a patch work quilt of greens, browns and now yellows as the sun will start to turn the corn.
Have been to the vets on tuesday with Toby as he has been having trouble with his teeth. His second teeth have come through but some of his milk teeth did not want to leave causing him to have a sore mouth as this can cause pressure in the jaw. With Toby it has obviously been causing him discomfort with him sore to touch his mouth & drooling after chewing or eating & the teeth where steadfast, so it was best to surgically remove them. A simple procedure done under anesthetic & Toby is a much happier chap now.
All the pups are doing well with Millie's Bayley leaving us this Sunday & Millie's Lindsey will be following on after him.
Cleo's pups have just reached 7 weeks old & will soon start leaving us from after the 30th May. They are a bonnie little litter of Cavapoos.
Smudge's litter of Cavapoos will be 4 weeks old tomorrow & three are already reserved with names now with Archie black collar, Crumble grey collar & Ollie brown collar. I must admit that the name Crumble I am rather taken with & that maybe one of ours will be a Crumble in the future.
I have had a couple updates from pups which I must get up on my blog but one really important one is that Alison's & Ray's Maddie has had her eye operation for her cataract & she is doing well. She has got to be kept quiet for 2 months which is going to be hard but Maddie is a very placid tempered girl which will help. Alison also said that the surgeon said that it was not fully formed which looks like it is more likely not an hereditary cataract more likely from an injury. I hope I have that right Alison.
Lets hope this weather stays around for a bit as its lovely to have the car windows open & music turned up. My music taste is very eclectic & if you want some fun with your children in the car get hold of "It ain't me, Babe !" sung by Johnny Cash, turn it up loud, all sing along with your windows wide open on a sunny day & I guarantee it will put a smile on all your faces or if you want to chill out try Bob Dylan's version. I have sung this song to my husband for the past 16 years & he has not taken the hint yet. Lol.
He accused me of sexually harassing him tonight when he came home as he was changing out of his clothes that smelt like he'd been dipped in the slurry tank because I smacked him on the bum. I said in reply to his comment "after 16 years you should be so lucky !"
