Ysobel's Cavapoo pups will be ten weeks old tomorrow and they will be having their second jabs and on Friday and Saturday they will be leaving us. As you will see from this group of photo's taken today, that they have all had a little trim around their faces and not so obviously around their bottoms. Because they are so fluffy it is a good idea to keep these to areas trimmed and this can be done with scissors if you do not have dog clippers in between visits to the beauty parlour for full trims.
Last night in the house we kept getting a waft of badger poo and I sniffed all dogs and could not locate the source of the smell. Today though I found it, a dryed up clump stuck to Bailey's under belly. The pups a couple times a day are released from the patio and have the run of the acre of ground around our property. I did not notice Bailey has obviously already developed a magnetic pull towards badger poo, he found it and I imagine with great joy rolled in it. Needless to say Bailey had his first bath today in the sink.
Looking forward to meeting every one again who are having one of these pups and especially meeting up with Tracey and Roxy. Its hard to believe Roxy is coming three years old this December. It will be lovely to see her as an adult dog in the flesh.
Once the pups have left I hope to get a breather and time to get on with the POUNDLANE Spaniel page and share some interesting stuff on genetics I have been reading up on.
Below is a group of photo's our son Bert has taken and I'm not pouting in the photo with Henry but in conversation with one of our other son's Alfie as Bert snapped us without warning. If you want to get something to help you relax, the best medicine I find is a lump of a dog asleep on your chest and stroke their ears. As you will see it is a two way medicine.
“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.”
