05 December 2018Goodness, how they've grown!
I never cease to be amazed at the rapidity of puppy development but 'Bea's Babes' seem to be especially forward at just six months.
Wendy Fielden writes that Teddy (below) has completely outgrown her lap and takes a keen interest in everything around him. He and Wendy's horse have become great friends and Teddy enjoys supervising the stable work as well as keeping an eye on the sheep...........
Kerensa Mckie's 'Harper' (Brambledale Bounce, above) is having great fun learning the basics of agility. She certainly looks to be a keen and nimble girl....
My own two, Bliss (above) and Brady (below, with Bliss) tower over their mum and are actually much bigger than they appear in these photos, which were taken six weeks ago. If it ever stops raining, I will replace them with new ones.
The fifth member of the litter is Fergus, who featured in our previous news item (below) at just four months old. Maura tells me that his training is progressing very well. On a recent training exercise she thought that he was mistaken about the direction of the scent trail and was very impressed to find that he was right and she was wrong!
03 October 2018Congratulations to Maura and Fergus!
Maura Cottey writes to say that young Fergus has been selected for training in ground scenting to find missing people.
She says " We spent Sunday on the crown estate near Ascot for the assessment in woodland. Fergus scored highly in everything!"
A remarkable achievement as Fergus was just four months old on the day he qualified!
And Maura adds
"He is a fabulous little dog and full of fun."
I look forward to following his progress.........
01 October 2018Happy Birthday Gwen!
Alex and Hannah Arthur write to remind me that today is Gwen's sixth birthday. A daughter of my Hanner and Glen, Gwen is as full of fun as ever and makes sure that her people include her in whatever is going on.
And below is Vicky Hassell's Rafe..........
Vicky writes: "Thanks as ever for our Birthday Boy - and of course his brother too!"..............and you can see older brother Finn emerging from the tunnel underneath!
Our best wishes to Gwen and Rafe and all their siblings.
