Tracey arrived today with her husband Paul and daughter Jodie along with their two Cavapoo dogs, Roxy and Charlie. Roxy is from Lucy's first litter, with the Dad being my sisters Poodle, Rollo and she is three years old. Charlie is from Ysobel's litter born last year on the 31st July and is now ten months old.
Tracey and her family have been down from Essex for a few days in North Devon on holiday (North Devon Coast is classified as an area of outstanding natural beauty) and today they had arranged with me to have Roxy and Charlie for a couple hours while they went over to Withypool to go on a North Devon Hawk Walk, which is going out into the moorland area of Exmoor to watch Falconary and get to handle the birds as well. They dropped off just after 10 am and as Withypool is a bit of a drive from us and it was booked for 11 am, it was a quick, "Hello !" and they had to get a wiggle on.
Whilst they were gone, we introduced Charlie to some of the dogs and two being Reggie and Ysobel, who are Charlie's Dad and Mum and got some photos and video footage of them. They managed to find what I think was some Hedgehog poo and as you see in the video have great fun trying to splash it all over.
Tracey, Paul and Jodie returned just after one and had enjoyed the falconary experience. They then came in and we had coffee and cake and a chance to have a chat. Paul asked if he could get a photo of Charlie with Reggie because he was so taken with how much Charlie is like Reggie in his mannerisms, so we got a photo of Reggie and Charlie with Paul. Time flew and it was approaching 3.30 pm when we said our goodbyes. It was lovely to catch up with Tracey and her family, human and canine. Thanks Tracey, Paul and Jodie for giving such a loving, caring home to two of our pups and letting us see what lovely dogs they have become in looks and manners.
Primrose's pups are well and are now three weeks old, although I think on the blog yesterday they were three weeks old, but that was because when I wrote that I had brain fade and thought it was already Saturday.
They are doing really well and we are now starting to see them more as individuals and in some of the photo's I can now more easily recognise the boys from the girls.
Last night one of our children took these couple photos of the dogs . Is that a new fluffy cushion ? or Treacle doing a very good impression of a fluffy cushion ?
