Happy 3rd Birthday first litter

Happy birthday to our first litter of puppies!  It’s lovely to see how they all are and have recent pictures of them.  Barney’s owner commented on how talkative he is and this is a trait he shares with his siblings and mother.  They like to greet you in the mornings and will chat away if there is something worth telling you, or you aren’t doing something they want!   People sometimes mistake the ‘woh woh woh’ noises for growling, but it is definitely just them letting you know who they are. Sunny is very good at singing ‘happy birthday’ so she sang to Luna yesterday, with Luna joining in with a few harmonies.

Tod’s having a well deserved holiday now – no obedience training apart from our once a month lesson. It will give me more time to work on Copper as he has loads to learn still!

Well done to Tracy for all her hard work.

Top Dog Tod

I am so thrilled to post this latest news of the star of my breeding so far (like it’s down to me 😉 )  Tracy and Tod went to the Witham Obedience Show today and Tracy sent me this message:

Hiya
We have had an amazing day!! I feel totally shattered and I am still in disbelief………

Tod WON “A” AND “B” !!!!!!!

My B stays were first thing so I did them and then worked my B round. He did his send-away!!!! I felt like running up and rewarding him for that but knew I had to work the round. Fast pace was first, that threw Tod a bit and I thought his heelwork was slightly loose but then he made up for it by doing brilliant slow and normal pace. My left turns were a bit naff but that was completely my fault.

I then worked his A round, he worked really well and did super left turns.  Both his scents were very good.

I can’t believe he has already got his first B!!!!
See you tomorrow 😀

Luna Expecting!

Scan has confirmed that Luna is expecting 5 puppies, due 3rd August.  I hope to keep one and have a couple of people already interested, so just have a couple of homes to find.  I expect they will all be sold before birth this time though, as both Luna and Oz are such brilliant temperaments, but also very pretty and dark red/chocolate (meaning all the pups will be too).  Oz lives in a loving family home, is being trained as a bio-detection dog and enjoys agility in his spare time.

I have already had a great deal of interest in this litter and am not taking any more names at the moment.

Young love
