Lets get up to date with updates. First is a group of lovely photo's of Otis. Otis is from Ysobel's litter the end of 2011 and Reggie is his Dad. Thanks Corrie for the update and letting me know what a charming well behaved dog he has turned into.
Next is an update for Dotty who is from Dolly's litter this year and left us a couple weeks ago. Thanks Caroline for letting me know all is going well.
hope all is well your end and that Molly loves being at 'big school'! We continue to have lots of fun with our dear Dotty-she is so tolerant of the children (their slightly clumsy handling and Barbara Woodhouse impressions!) and loving and playful-a real joy to have in our family! She loves to make friends-both human and canine-and so many people have commented on her friendliness and sweet nature. She LOVES walks with doggy playmates, even if they are four times her size! We start training on Sunday-but I know that's for us rather than her, as she is so keen to please-a real gem!
Now for Barney who is from Lucy's first litter born the end of 2010.
Thanks Victoria for this. Lucy and Rollo are doing well.
Sorry it’s been such a long time since I’ve been in touch! Where does time go? I’ve attached some photos of Barney so you can see what a handsome fella he is now!! (and of course I tell him this everyday while giving him a million kisses!!) One of the photos is where he attended a Charity fun dog show and as you will see, won many rosettes and I was the proudest Cavapoo Mummy in the world!! Barney had his first camping holiday in August and loved every minute of it!! He settled straight away in the tent but soon found his favourite spot was very close to the cooker J And lets just say that some Ham went missing….. JI’ve just managed to have a quick catch up on your blog and see that Barney’s mum Lucy is no longer with you and gone to a new family, is she ok? And how is adorable Rolo doing ? Hope all is well with you and you enjoy Barneys pics.
Take care Victoria and John (Hull) xx
We now have Barney's sister Roxy. Thanks Tracey.
Now for one of Smudge's offspring from her litter of nine in 2012. Thanks Trudi for the photo's of your sweet Dougal.
Now this is Dougal's Auntie Maddie. Maddie is Smudge's sister born in 2010 with Charlie the Dad. Millie is her Mum and she is certainly her Mum's double. Thanks Alison for the beautiful photo's of Millie and the view from your home.
Last update is Auntie Maddie's neice and Dougal's sister Darcy. Thanks Kelly for letting me know how you are all getting on and congratulations on the new family member.
Hi Jane! Just a quick email to let you know about our little family. Darcy now has a baby sister and has taken to her like a mother! She is so gentle and affectionate with her it's lovely. She is still mischievous but has calmed down a lot in the 9 weeks since baby arrived. Darcy likes being close to her as you can see by this picture and especially likes licking her feet! She still is very spoilt by everyone but is a lot better at listening now! Cannot believe she has been with us only a year, it feels like we have had her forever. Darcy still loves other doggys and I'm sure would like a friend to play with, although our hands are full at the moment!
Hope all is well at poundlane,
Kelly and Jonathan x
Now an update on Ysobel's Cavapoo pups who are today 6 weeks and 5 days old. The pups are all growing well and are really up for adventures now. Bruiser Bailey is a bit of a thug with his siblings but is a very gentle fellow when handled by us. Charlie Titch is a ball of fun and a bit of a licker like Dad Reggie, up for play and hanging off your trouser leg. Dexter Dolittle has the curlest tail and likes attacking your feet especially licking your toes, he to is a licker. Olive Oil is the only girl, so naturally she is a bit of a Tom boy and happily adventures on her own, she also is a bit of a licker.
They all love the children and first stop when waking up or coming home from school for our children is the puppy pen.
Photo's are from the last week up to today.
I must get on and write up soon about me leaving the Kennel Club Assured scheme, I have not forgot, just need to muster the energy for the rant. I know one thing for sure, I don't expect to be on Mr Lambert's Christmas card list this year.Lol.
Also having had Jessica, Primrose and Belle just gone off heat, we can now start giving an idea of the litters we hope to breed in 2014 soon.
Lastly. In our home we don't have a naughty step, we have a cheeky pen. This is Treacle's bedroom which she shares with her Mum Dolly until big enough to sleep with the adult dogs at night in the back house. Henry and Treacle are best mates but because of the size difference and age we are careful at the moment that they are not left together unsupervized.
“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.”
