I was driving the children to school this morning and suddenly thought today is the day three years ago Smudge had her first ever litter of pups, being a litter of nine pups, and then thought funny that her third and last litter of pups, being also a litter of nine pups are three days old today.
Then I checked my emails on returning home and found this lovely email from Angie, who has Archie, who is from Smudge's first litter. He is a first cross Cavapoo and our Reggie is his father.
Congratulations on another bumper pack of puppies! We love all the different patterns! They are gorgeous!
Just wanted to wish all of Archie's siblings a very happy 3rd birthday!
One of our favourite photos in our house is the 9 of them snuggled under the blanket in a row! So cute!
Would love to know where they all live now!
Look forward to seeing you all in the Summer!
Love from Angie Jon Hannah and Archie ( currently fast asleep!) xxxx"
Thanks Angie for an update on Archie and a 3rd Birthday greeting to all his litter siblings. I also hope that Archie's litter siblings are doing well and had a lovely 3rd Birthday, so a Big Happy 3rd Birthday greeting from Poundlane to Lola, Ollie, Crumble, Tiggy, Darcey, Hunny, Millie, Dougal and of course Archie !
And for Angie and all the rest of the families that have one of Archie's litter siblings, here is the photo of them three years ago all in a row snuggled under the blanket at the vets, after eight of them had been delivered by c-section.
And for comparison here is Smudge's second litter of nine pups, all in a row, snuggled up to mum at the milk bar at three days old, three years later.
