That title shows my age, any one else remember that song"The heat is on" if you do,your probably as highbrow as me then. Lol. Happy Days !
Some updates and some news that some have been patiently waiting for. Dolly has come on heat. The first day of a heat is counted when the bitch starts to bleed which for Dolly was Friday. We need to get her annual eye test done. This will be due next month, so we will pop her over to Mr Warren at Tavistock with Ysobel when she is around three weeks pregnant. Dolly enjoys going out and seems to show little stress at any thing, so would not be worried about doing this with her when pregnant. She is now over five and each year has been clear, although hereditary cataracts can develop in old dogs, with her parents being clear of any eye problems this is crossing the t and dotting the i with her, giving piece of mind to her pups families and Dolly and Ysobel get a run on Dartmoor on the way back.
Once we mate Dolly in around seven days time will contact every one with dates etc of hopefully new arrivals.
Next tonight is a lovely update and photo from Margaret who has one of Dolly's offspring from her last litter born October 2011 with Dad being Reggie. This is Bella and when you read below what Margaret has written in a tongue in cheek fashion, you will either be thinking what am I going to be bringing into my home having one of Dolly's pups or thinking, bring it on, hopefully the later. They got to have character and my, Margaret you seem to have that in Bella. Thanks so much for this Margaret.
Lovely photos today of the pack, isn't Toby a beautiful boy.
Attached a photo of Bella taken last week:-
I don't get taken to Pembrokeshire frequently
I don't play for hours with balls on the beach (and at home)
I do come back EVERY time I am asked
I don't sleep on the beds
I am not the most important thing in my Human Mum and Dads life
I love being brushed
I am very well behaved
I don't have any friends
I hate children
I don't chase Mums hens when she is not looking
I will never catch a squirrel
I don't bark at the cats from an upstairs window
I do everything my human Mum asks me to do etc., etc.,
Now is an update for one of Cleo's pups who's First Birthday was last Thursday. Thanks Lorraine for getting intouch and yes Murphy is a handsome chap.
Hi Jane ,
just wanted to update you on Murphy’s progress. He is an absolute darling, he is loved so much by all of our family and friends, I might be biased but he is so handsome!!! Our lives seem like we have never been without him, he is such a good boy and has never caused us problems with chewing everything insight, although he does have a thing for socks. He is so well behaved and I’m convinced that was due to you and your family. I’ve attached a couple of photo’s. I would like to wish all Murphy’s siblings a very happy birthday. I hope you and your family are all well.
Kindest Regards Lorraine x x
Lastly tonight. I've just had fun filling in a questionaire from the Kennel Club about the Assured Breeder Scheme and said I was happy to be contacted about points raised, as they ask if they can contact you at the end of it. I can be be quite wicked (thought I ought to clarify this morning what I mean by wicked )sometimes but not in an evil or immoral sense, more in the manner I present my discord through sarcastic wit (which some might say, is the lowest form of wit), especially if I am passionate about something. I will point out one factor if they contact me, if you do questionaires, you must give an "other" option on all sections, as to move on in the survey I had to answer questions to be allowed to submit but some sections none of the options I agreed with and their was no "other" box but to submit I had to tick a box, so this can arise to false statistics on something like this I would imagine. I wonder how many other surveys this happens in and to move on a box is just ticked so as to complete the survey and a false statistic occurs, probably frightenely to many times I suspect. I think I sometimes think to much. Lol
