RUBY'S PUPPIES

We were delighted with the arrival of Ruby's litter by Blaze on the 18th June (the day of Royal Ascot) as this was the happy result of a plan made some time ago.  Naturally-reared Bearded Collie stud dogs are still quite a rarity, especially second-generation ones, and we tentatively hoped that Blaze would be an asset to our NR breeding plans, reproducing the good health and vigour which is his trademark.  Ruby carries some of the precious old Wellknowe lines which are increasingly hard to find, and this is her second and final litter, a unique pairing.

Aged three days. The one on top has his father's trademark blaze marking. He was the last to arrive and gave us a couple of anxious moments!

When they snuggle up like this is is hard to tell when one pup ends and another begins!

Spread out a bit so we can see them better- two boys in front have almost identical markings and can only be told apart by their current size difference!
Bliss!
