CAUTION FOR THANKSGIVING WEEK END
Please keep an eye on your family and friends at Thanksgiving when all those tasty leftovers are lying about. It can be very tempting to hand out a special treat to your dog. But Lets Keep Thanksgiving a Happy Time!
UPDATE FROM BELGIUM NOV 2014
Dreamboat is winning hearts in Belgium. Thanks Pia for the great feedback. 'Dirkje' looks to be getting along beautifully with her big kids. We are looking forward to her being a big kid herself and seeing what gorgeous puppies she will produce for you!
Dreamboat is gorgeous!!!!
A bundle of joy, happy, not afraid at all, sleeping in her soft bag between my feet after eating some of the cooked chicken I brought, during the flight to Amsterdam.
In the car she was very calm. As if she is already used to be there her whole life.
You did a great job, thank you very much!
Dirkje is só adorable! She already shows her great personality, so wanting to be part of the family, assertive but immediately takes a step back when she needs to (specially when her brothers tell her :-) ).
And incredibly wanting to learn. We started the attention exercise which she does beautiful, today we try to teach her her name. It is very rewarding to work with her, she is like a sponge. You can see her little mind working!
The first night she wined for a while, which is understandable and went out at 3am and then again at 7am. Second night the same and last night she slept from 10.30pm until 5.30am!!
We are very happy to have her with us, we will keep you posted.
The pictures are a bit grey but that is because of the weather: raining cats and dogs all day.
We will send you more when the sun shines!
Pia and family
UPDATE FROM FINLAND NOVEMBER 2014
RUTLANDS RAINDROPS ON ROSES
Thank you Taina for the great feedback. We are so excited to follow Rosie's progress and one day to see her own special puppies!
The Border Vet said Rosie is a happy healthy puppy. My husband has not any allergy /asthma symptoms either, even though I have not washed her after the flight!!!
I have noticed that she is very sweet natured and so easy to train !!! she is also able to touch the soul in some special way that I can not explain. Our whole family loves her very much already.
I think she is quite a calm puppy.We all love her so much...In my opinion she is well angulated both front and back, and she has good compact body, beautiful coat, nice expression, just the right length muzzle. She is seeking also the human eye contact constantly, which is lovely. She is absolutely wonderful. . I am lucky to get a puppy from such a litter!
Hugs from Finland, Taina and Rosie
I wondered at times if ever these photos were going to get done at all! Computer problems, then camera and card reader failures, combined with the sweltering heat, were all a bit much! But today was D Day and both litters of puppies got their pictures all done. Thanks team member Suzanne! I couldn't have done it without you!
Today was a sweltering hot day with a strong hot wind. But thanks to team member Suzanne, all the puppy allocation photos got done and despite everything, each puppy was cool and comfortable and ate with a hearty appetite at the end of a long day. Thanks so much Suzanne, you're a trooper!
