Seanna's transition to her new home here in Australia, has been fabulously successful, where she will breed special puppies some of which will be trained as Diabetic Alert Dogs and Assistance Dogs. A picture is worth a thousand words!
Here is Sennie, daughter of Seanna, Pictured this afternoon, with a knowing look in her eyes. She is cycling! And will be bred to Kelby by the end of this month. Exciting news for everyone waiting for a puppy from this special litter!
Sennie is the living image of her mother and we are soooo looking forward to her babies!
Monkey and Solly's 'Rutlands Raindrops On Roses' (Rosie) shows them how it's done at Puppy School in Finland!
Rosie was today at the puppy school for the first time. The teacher had only superlatives to say about her; She is a really quick learner, calm and her concentration ability is excellent. I am so proud of my little, beautiful girl!
Her eye contact is an innate feature. When other puppies at puppy school have to be trained to get it, she does it without training. Rosie was the last time an example to other dog owners about what kind of eye contact and walking must be on a leash. She is only 13 weeks and the other puppies 10 months old!
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 so much already!
Thank you for the wonderful feedback! It is the innate features of eye contact and intuition as well as being so easy to train are all important features of the Australian Cobberdog. Thanks again for posting! :-) Beverley
Beverley, Flo Nighty is the happiest, laid back and most confident puppy. We LOVE her to pieces. Thank you for the amazing start you gave her...she is all Rutland breeding/raising that's for sure x
Flo is from my foundation breeder in Australia www. RutlandManor.com run by Beverley. Where Siggy and Alfie were born and raised . She's the same perfect temperament in fun puppy, chocolate form!
Day in the life: went for a shower after a great workout at #crunch and felt bad for Florence (puppy) so took her with me to play on the floor while I showered.
A first for me: the Puppy got in the shower too! She took her shower in multiple phases and then ran around the bathroom to dry off with an open shampoo bottle in her mouth, only stopping to pee on my fluffy, clean white towel and my slippers. Just finished clearing up from very hilarious puppy mayhem. Must be time for some retail therapy
Thanks Jill for the hilarious feedback! Beverley
Thank you a MILLION times for all that you do with these fabulous little puppies.
Bubba arrived this morning in great shape. He showed absolutely NO signs of distress whatsoever from his long travel. He comes when called and walks beautifully on a leash. He understands that he cannot do everything that he wants , and is easily redirected.
It is VERY evident that he has been well cared for. You have put so much work, effort, and attention already into this little guy. Thank you so much.
Here are 2 pics of little Rutland's Bubba Watson III.
Know that all your efforts a very much appreciated.
Tribute to Sweet Olly, a beautiful flatcoat who passed to the Rainbows Bridge just short of fourteen years old in August 2014
Olly was Suzanne's breeding female whose flat silky coat did a lot through her puppies in earlier years, to refine and thin the super heavy dense coats on the Australian Labradoodles, that were so hard to maintain. Suzanne loves to hot balloon and Olly was a familiar figure at the days held by the club, quite unphazed by the noise and strangeness of the huge floating sky balloons. May you rest in peace sweet Olly.
I am contacting you with sad news today. My beautiful girl from Rutland Manor, Olly, went for her final visit to the vet in August 2014. She would have turned 14 next month.
She had developed a pinched nerve in her lower back which was causing difficulty for the last year, and in the last two days she has let me know that it is time.
Beverley, I wanted to thank you for Olly and all the joy (which by far outweighed the frustrations) she has given me over the years. She has retained her unique "Olly-ness" up until the last week.
Her sense of humour and timing have been amazing, along with her sense of speed (she knew she was not allowed to put the electronic windows in the car down over 80km/h but once the car reached that speed I would hear her stomping on the window winder button if I had the childproof locks on - otherwise, the window would simply be put down). Her capacity to bark to get her own way had only deserted her recently and her garbage seek-and-destroy habits along with her penchant of stealing any food she could reach only left in the last week. Her gentleness with adults and children, friends and friends-yet-to-be-met has never deserted her. Her gorgeous smile will live on in many memories and hearts.
She will live on in her puppies with that lovely fine coat that I know she infused back into the breed. I still have owners of her puppies contacting me with updates on their beloved dogs.
I will continue to have Shirley here with me after Olly is gone, and we will be a one-dog household for a while at least. But I know that at some point in the future I will be contacting you for a new household member.
Kindest regards Bev, and many thanks again.
Do you think they are supposed to be in bed sleeping?

I miss you my darling Seanna, but it's so good to see you so happy and settled in such a short time. Thanks Gail for the ongoing updates, you're a treasure. :-)
