Happy new year to you and your family, including the dogs of course.
Saffy continues to be lovely company and is getting quite good on recall, except when an squirrel, rabbit or bird is in sight. She has an amazing nose, on the beach all the other dogs are running around, but she constantly has her nose to the ground! She continues to be very sociable, wanting to meet all dogs, whatever size etc. This was her on the beach today.
She has been in season twice which is a bit strange. Her first one was when she was five months old and then again last month - much lighter. i have a theory that a friend who came to stay with an entire dog (9 months old)- two weeks before her first season provoked the first season as he was v interested in her and the second one which was v light was when it should have been. Do you think that likely? So I have no idea where she is in her cycle- but either way she should be fine in February.
I loved the photos of your new year and Saffy seems to recognise Henry’s bark. I played the video and she went round the room barking.
She has got v clingy over the past few days I think because the girls have gone away. This pic was her at christmas with my sisters dog Bruce who is a sprocker. And another with my friends dog who is a Kooikerhondje .
Anyway best wishes for 2019 - we look forward to seeing new litters of puppies!

sorry for not getting back sooner, I have been having computer issues. That is well within normal for a bitch to have a first season and then around 5 months later another. I have just had two of our girls come on heat two months earlier than they normally cycle. The male dog sniffing around her may of prompted her heating a bit earlier. I would not be concerned. At least that pretty much means she won't come on in February. I did think that she could of clashed with you going away.
Lovely photos of her. The side view of her head, looks like she kept her Mum's better length to muzzle and cranium. Very interesting to see her sat with a Kooikerhondje.
Look forward to catching up with you in February.
Happy New Year from us all at Poundlane
