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!
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!

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!
Oh my golly, everyone has been sweltering in scorching temperatures lately and we've had to postpone doing much for the puppies
First photo is of MAGGIE who is joining Tom and the Girls very soon. She has an incredibly sweet nature and the eyes of an angel, and I feel sure she will blend in beautifully with the other three girls at Tom's - two of them also Rutlands girls.

Everyone should now have received the letter from their puppy, to say that their suitcases are packed!
More photos are on their way tomorrow. Not long to go now!
Cheers, Beverley and the Rutlands Team xo
This afternoon, I took a video of team member Suzanne giving Rosie and Dirkje their first leash training lesson. We had a ball, and the puppies did too. Next week Rosie is off to Finland, and Dirkje to Belgium where both will provide beautiful lines to Taina and Pia for their breeding programs. I hope you enjoy watching these darling puppies learning their lessons as much as I enjoyed taking the video!
Final preparations are under way for these two lovely puppies and next we will be doing the same for the puppies heading off to the United States and to Canada in a couple of weeks. After that we will focus on the puppies going to Holland and the UK.
Stay tuned for more videos and pictures!
