Christmas greetings are coming in and thanks for the e-cards and cards in the post I have received, so far.
The first greeting on here from my inbox is from Karen who has Darcey. Darcey is our Treacle's sister and their Mum is Dolly and dad Reggie, born Spring 2013. Karen's husband I know does a very stressful job and Karen has health problems that means she is a stay at home wife and mother, but it seems Darcey has inspired Karen to start up a business from home. Love the name of the website 'While Darcey sleeps.' Karen from my experience is a very genuine and nice person to deal with, so please take a look at her website www.whiledarceysleeps.com
Have a lovely Christmas Darcey and your family. Thanks Karen.
"Hi Jane and everyone at Pound Lane,
I can't believe our second Christmas with Darcey is almost upon us. She has had a great year making even more friends, perfecting her squirrel hunting and even bigger river jumps.
She has given me so much confidence that I have launched a craft blog and pet portrait business at www.whiledarceysleeps.com, so called because I only get stuff done when she's napping!
Hope you are all well
The next greeting is from Glenda who has Bayley, who's Mum is the wanderer Millie and Dad is Reggie. Bayley was from Millie's last litter born in the Spring of 2012. Good to hear that his tummy has settled with a change of diet, but sad to hear (seemingly to often these days I hear of dogs attacking others) of dogs attacking him. Forgot in replying the email to say to Glenda, "although he has the more Poodle coat, he don't half look like his Mum in his eyes. I bet he really has got begging off to a T, with those soulful eyes. Lol"
Thanks Glenda and wishing you all a wonderful Christmas time.
We wish you and the family a very Happy Christmas and good luck with litters for 2015.
Enclosed are a couple of recent photos of Bayley.
As you can see he has grown into a very handsome boy, he is admired by everyone that meets him.He is a very obedient dog and a very loving companion. He is thoroughly spoilt and very much loved.
Unfortunately, we have had two attacks which has made him nervous around dogs he doesn't know. Fortunately we walk with four regular dogs which has given him his confidence back.
Health wise, since changing his diet we have had no more problems with his tummy. He is on Nature's Diet and Lilly's kitchen kibble.
I am still an avid reader of your blog and find it very amusing and informative, thank you.
“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.”
