Anna went to the Y10 tourism conference at Harrogate today and there was some clips on a short advert promoting Yorkshire. Anna was sure she saw Molly my English Springer spaniel in one and one of me walking with the fox red Labradors over the grouse moor at Dallowgill. No doubt she will put her Inspector Morse hat on until she finds out if it was . As far as I know I am the only one who was with fox red Labradors at Dallowgill. More later..

A year has gone by very quick and here you can see Tara the yellow Labrador and Hidi the black one. Today the first day of Spring and it is their first birthday . They were born on a sunny day and here they are sat out enjoying the sunshine again.
Their sire is FTCH Leadburn Viceroy and Tina- Jakoranda Moment is their dam. The genes of these two have created two well conformed,intelligent dogs and I am so pleased with how they are coming on. Tina is enjoying a rest after a busy season picking up and I guess Viceroy will be doing the same.

Here you see two of the fox red bitch pups finishing off their breakfast before Simon Tyers came to pick them up for their onward journey across the Atlantic . They are the first pups we have bred that have gone to America. We are looking forward to hearing that they have got there safely and settled in to their new home. It is nice they are going to the same home and will travel together in first class style on the aeroplane.

These pups are coming on nicely and are not afraid of water and look as if they are into gardening too as they are pruning the plants round the pond very well -much to Anna's disgust.They have already started carrying twigs about and wont be much longer before they are all carrying pheasants.

Here are Mays pups at 6 weeks old. In between dog training with Rollo,Tara and Hidi and puppy feeding -they are up to 5 feeds a day now I have been busying sawing wood up as we are hoping to get another wood burning stove put in. There are so many on the market but think we will go for a Jotel like the last one.Anyone with a better suggestion please let us know
