Recently received a lovely update for Blenheim Lucy who is now eleven years old. We re-homed Lucy five and half years ago Lucy Leaves us. We got her as an adult dog, as someone was advertising her to re-home. She settled right in with us and produced two lovely litters of Cavapoos easily and just as we started to do her health tests to breed her third and last litter, Judith and Tony contacted us about having a puppy from her. They visited us and meet Lucy and Reggie, but Lucy on having her annual heart examination over 5 years old by a cardiologist vet was heard to have a heart murmur. I contacted Judith and Tony to tell them we would not breed from her again and what snowballed from that was they would be very interested in having Lucy. They had Cavaliers before and understood the heart issues. My main reason for re-homing Lucy was that she had spent the early part of her life not living in a pack and although she fitted in well, I thought she would probably be better suited to living out her adult into old age life in a home with less dogs. So five and a half years ago Lucy started her life with Judith and Tony, and what a wonderful life they are giving her.
Hi Jane and everyone
This is a update on Lucy who is just fine. She was 11 years old in July and on her January check up her heart murmur had not changed so that was really super news. She struggled a bit in the hot weather but we cut down on her walks and kept open all doors so that she could have some air (if there was any).
She's still full of mischief and, for the first time, went on a solo expedition, in the hot weather. She jumped down from the lawn level and squeezed through a very small gap in a new picket fence Tony had built (to keep out the deer from our woodland) into the woodland to the stream then on through our boundary hedge into neighbours very large garden/woodland up the slope again up many steps and sat outside their patio doors thank you very much They tapped on our window and asked if we had lost anything! Pictures attached at your leisure! In expedition order!
We trust all is well with you and the family and that the recent heat was not too draining on you all.
Will keep in touch.
Judith and Tony

"Hello Judith and Tony,
great to hear from you and that Lucy is in such good order at 11 years old. Love the solo expedition.
The heat is very tiring. I'm not a great hot weather lover.
Thanks for keeping me updated on Lucy over the years. Lovely to see and hear how loved and well looked after she is.
All of us are well thanks. Hope you are both well.
Love from us all at Poundlane
