We are delighted to announce that Claire is pregnant with at least 8 puppies!
Judge Lisa Day’s courses were clear and easy to follow at the Kingston and District Kennel Club Show in June. She did change a sign from continue to Halt for the second trial. I practised the halt, but blew right past it when we competed. MINUS 10 POINTS!
As she congratulated Rudi she whispered, you are a 100 dog. Your owner is just a 90.
Hello spring! The puppies are enjoying the warm weather as much as we are. The little black girl has a home, but the three cream boys are still looking for a wonderful family. Seven and a half weeks of total fun.
Puppy socializing is hard work. Socializing continues. Many visitors are coming to give back massages. Rub downs and cuddles.
Paper Training is progressing at an astonishing rate. At 4 and a half weeks they sometimes miss, but they are gaining accuracy.
We had two delightful boys over to cuddle the puppies. Their parents came along too. I explained the importance of their job. The puppies need to enjoy the experience and not be frightened. They took their job very seriously. Everyone enjoyed the experience absolutely. The next cuddlers come this afternoon. More pics to follow, check back soon.
Precious wee Scamp. It took him 5 hours after big brother Wally was born for Scamp to make up his mind, but he emerged very lively and eager to grow. He was the tiny one, but he soon caught up to his brother Laraby and sister Irena.
What an amazing first week it’s been. The “Wee Scamp” the puppy we waited for 5 hours for at the end of the litter, has filled out with determination and is now as big as his sister. He may never catch up to Wally (the Walrus!), who was puppy number 3. Claire is an amazing Momma, keeping the babies warm, clean and VERY well fed!
Stay tuned for eye opening celebrations which we expect any day now!!
Our first litter of cute and roly-poly standard poodles arrived on April 1st 2015…and the trick? Three gorgeous cream male puppies (and one little black female) are what came out of our beautiful black Claire, and her gorgeous blue baby-daddy Kingsley.
