The rain did come for the Easter holidays & did it come on Monday with avengence with constant rain for the day. Julie & her family which includes Poppy from Dolly's Christmas litter braved it to visit us on their way back to London after a holiday in Devon.
Thankfully Julie sent me photo's with one being of their visit, as guess what I was busy talking & forgot to take any photo's myself. The one of their visit has a rare photo with me in it but I did not realise I was in the frame, so not quite sure whats going on with my face in the photo, so to reasure all that are yet to meet me, my son took a photo of us together today & he thought I ought to upload it incase the other photo scares anyone. Children who'd have them, as if I had an ego before I had mine I certainly have not got one now.lol
Any way enough of my vanity. It was lovely to see Poppy & she is as pretty in the flesh as in her photo's. She is very friendly & Julie said she is very brave which is one of the things I recall about her as although she was the smallest of the litter she did not lack braveness & was always first to investigate anything new.
Thanks again Julie for letting me see Poppy again & hopefully you will be down this way again in the future.
After the rain of monday we have had now a couple nice days with abit of a chilly wind but the sun has been out which always makes everything brighter. I have been able to get some lovely photo's of the dogs outside & under are weeping willow which offers shade when the sun is out. Ysobel, Dolly & Lucy at this time are under house arrest as they have all come onto heat together & we do not want Reggie or any other dog having a clandestine meeting with any these three until the spring of 2013.
Smudge is now around 6 weeks pregnant & is really well & looking really big & will try to get some photo's of her blooming in the next few days.
My mum's Cleo's Cavapoo pups are going on well & are now a week old. Cleo has got over her cesarean really well & has loads of milk & is enjoying being a mum.
Millie's Cavapoo litter is now just over 3 weeks old & we have had the first break out of the whelping box with one pup yesterday some how getting out & another doing the same today, so will be looking to remove the whelping box in a few days time for a lower lipped bed that the pups can get out of & then can get back into again. This bunch are a very forward lot already very mobile & up for adventure.
