Tomorrow we will see Mollie and Harvey leave us for their new homes and I managed to get a lovely photo opportunity today with the two of them together in their bed.
This morning saw them along with Jake and Chester make the trip to the vets to have their second vaccinations and they then came back and had a massive sleep after the stress of a trip in the car and visiting the vets. They were not to bad and just whimpered a little whilst waiting to go in to see the vet.
The video is from yesterday and I missed catching the best bit of Smudge playing with her pups. I was watching her bombing around the patio playing with her pups and then thought, I ought to catch this on video and by the time I got the camera they were winding down. Mum still allows them a little suckle now and then, but it's more for comfort, she has yet again been a wonderful Mum.
Primrose's Cavapoo pups are now a week old and that has flown past. Primrose and the pups are all doing well. These pups all have homes and I have been busy arranging the visiting of the six families waiting on these pups. I'm now onto arranging the fifth family to visit and then will be in touch with the sixth family to arrange a time to visit. This is the hardest part of having a litter of pups, arranging families to visit in order of the waiting list.
Got reminded this morning by an email from Alison, that today is a special day, it's Smudge and her litter siblings fourth birthday.
Hope this fines you all well and looking forward to summer.
Maddie just wanted to say Happy Birthday to her siblings, we can't believe she is four, where did that time go.
I was so sorry to read about Jessica, but she has come along in "leaps and bounds" literally, will you be able to breed from her.? All your dogs are so resilient and lay back they just take anything that is thrown at them.
As you can see Maddie is settled in her new home and loves her lawn but does miss the beach.
Ray and I are fine and enjoying our new home.
Just a couple of photo's. The second one she is saying "Has anyone seen my sunglasses"
Well must go shopping before it gets too hot.
Love to you all,
Alison, Ray and Maddie x
Thanks for reminding me Alison and a Happy Fourth Birthday also to their litter siblings Teddy, Oliver, Charlie and Flo. Hope you all had a lovely day.
Karen sent me this lovely photo of Darcey a couple weeks ago and also shared a dog friendly day out in Brighton
Couldn't resist sending this picture of Darcey taken in the woods at the bottom of our road, she has spent the last three weeks "flushing" the bluebells! Not sure what she is hoping to find but plenty of bunnies and squirrels have had their breakfasts disturbed.
I also wanted to share our experiences of taking Darcey to our nearest town which is Brighton. We took her for the second time yesterday and just in case anyone reading your blog fancies a trip, I wanted to tell you how dog friendly it is. We always tend to stick in the North Laines area which is all independent shops and has a great villagey feel, and Darcey was allowed to go in all the shops and would have even been allowed in the cafe where we had breakfast! We didn't fancy keeping her nose out of all that food so sat outside. It was very refreshing to have her invited in to all sorts of shops and thankfully she behaved herself.
Of course she got loads of attention but also three separate, detailed enquiries as to how to get a dog just like her, so sorry if you are inundated with calls!
Hope you all are well and love to everyone
Thanks Karen for that.
Tracey who has Roxy from Lucy's litter the end of 2010 and Charlie from Ysobel's litter born July last year is visiting us on the 31st May, as down here on holiday. Thanks for the photo's Tracey and look forward to catching up and seeing you all on the 31st.
Lastly a lovely photo Margaret sent me of her Bella, who reflects her name. She is from Dolly's litter born 2011. Thanks Margaret for the photo and lovely to hear from you.
