The nights are closing in and time seems to be flying by with such short days. Tonight I start with some updates. The first is from Tracey who has Roxy and Charlie. Roxy is from Lucy's litter back the end of 2010 and Charlie is from Ysobel's litter born this year on the 31st July. Thanks Tracey for the update, photos and video of your two. Lovely to hear all is going well and Roxy is getting on well with her new canine companion.
Just a quick update the let you know Charlie has really settled in with us now. After making the decision to let Roxy & Charlie sleep together he no longer barks at night anymore & he is a lot more settled during the day!
He is a dear little soul & he & Roxy get on like a house on fire! Everyday Charlie will have a mad ten minutes where he will run around the dining room like a nutter letting off steam as he goes lol he is so funny to watch :-)
I hope you enjoy the photos & will update you again soon.
Tracey, Roxy & Charlie Xx Whoof Whoof
Next is an email received from the Sutton family about Pippa who is from Dolly's litter born this year on the 14th June. Thanks for this Sheridon and you are a great example of how you should go about getting a pup. You did your reasearch and most importantly you where patient.
All is quiet in our house this weekend with 3 of the children and Martin at their grandparents, so I'm getting around to emails and one to you is long overdue. Pippa is sat next to me on the sofa
while I type this trying to have a sneaking chew of the laptop, she just loves being with people but is also very good when left in the house on her own, which is never for more than a couple of hours at the moment. A friendlier puppy you could not meet, she gets so excited meeting people and has become well known in our neighbourhood, though I have learnt to read peoples expressions as to whether they want to be ambushed by a wet, dirty puppy or not. There has a lot of comments on how pretty she is and lovely colouring but the most important thing for us as a family with 4 children was to have a well socialised, good tempered, loving dog and that is what we have, the look of the dog was unimportant. The vet made a comment about how if more people took the time as we
did to research the right breed and then as importantly the right breeder they would not see the problems they do and the amount of dogs being rehomed and he said Pippa was a great example of when buying a puppy how it should be done. Never having had a dog before we are learning as we go along but she is making things quite easy for us and just fits in to our busy everyday family life. She
loves being outdoors, walks, her recall is great and chasing leaves but most of all just being with us, we adore her and hopefully we make her as happy as she makes us, she certainly seems very content.
Hope all is well with your family and enjoying the half term break.
Now a quick hello from Archie. Archie is from Smudge's litter born Spring 2012 and Archie came and stayed with us this summer for two weeks while Angie and her family went to France on holiday. Thanks Angie, good to hear from you.
Thought you would
like this photo of Archie ! He is full of beans but chilled out with it!
Friends call him the surfer dude!
Hope all good with you all and Reggie back to full fitness.
Last update is from the Pearce family and Milly who is from Primroses litter born Autumn last year. Thanks Lindsey for the cute photos and update on Milly, and around two they tend to start acting more grown up.
Hope you, your family and all the dogs are well!
Just wanted to update you on Milly's progress. She is turning into a lovely dog! Although we have hit her teenae period and she can be rather cheeky and she is a master thief of socks (well anything she can get her paws and mouth on/anything is thinks she can steal) and is prone to over-excitement on meeting people and dogs for the first time , when she has got over her excitement, she is amazingly gentle and docile (especially when we are all just at home, and with the girls).
I am hoping she might calm down a bit when she is older :)
I have attached some pictures for you to see what a fine dog is she growing to be, they are the latest pictures we have and we're taken on her 1st birthday.
Now for some Poundlane news. No news on scans yet for Belle Primrose and Smudge. Smudge and Primrose are off to Abbotskerswell tomorrow to have heart examinations with the cardiologist vet. Fingers crossed. Smudge and Primrose are both over three years old now, so I would hope no murmurs are heard and being MRI scanned a couple weeks ago nothing was picked up then when they where put under anesthetic.
Now for some pictures of the pack and I have singled this one out as it shows in profile Belle our Cavapoo that is two years old with her half sister Primrose who has the same Mum, Ysobel but is a pure Cavalier. You can already see how much change has occured in the face with lengthening of nose and more slope to the front of the skull. Lets hope the MRI scan confirms an improvement to the back of the skull.
Lastly some photos my son Bert took of me after returning from milking on Sunday morning, having a cup of coffee and a piece of toast with Henry giving me some good old cupboard love. Thank fully my son was more interested in capturing Henry than me in the photos.
That's me done, quick blog tonight and will be back as soon as possible with news of heart examinations.
