We keep this pup as Anna had hand reared it as its mother didn't have enough milk for the whole litter. It did very well raised and is now ready to go to its new home.Should you know anyone who is looking for a grown up pup. She is very affectionate and will walk on a lead. She now lives outside but was housetrained when she lived inside so would not take long to get back into that mode again. we are looking for a loving permanent home for her.Maybe you are the right person to have her or know someone who is. I took this photo from the other side of the fence as she was very curious and think she wanted the camera for herself
Well our litter "hatched" around 3 weeks ago. A very even numbered litter 5 girls and 5 boys.All like peas in a pod but puppies in a kennel. Mother and babies doing well. They have just started their weaning programme now and don't have to be shown twice where the food is. For now it is just sleep and eat and her you see Rubi-Sue and Martha checking to see they are ok. Martha was so excited to see them she didn't see the water dish and got rather wet
Here you see 2 of our Labrador Youngsters chilling our in a rare moment of sunshine. And who said 2 aren't company. They are top mates - brother and sister. FTCH Ernvale Maud of Tudorcourt is on both sides of these pups pedigree. Maud was not only a FTCH but was the top retriever in Ireland in 2008. It will be interesting to see how these pups turn out . For the time being they are happy to chill out.
Anna headed north to Aberdeen taking Tara - Cuckavalda Touch of Gold. Looking for different blood lines we had found Roddy McBains FTCH fox red stud dog. After driving up through the night and a couple of hours sleep Anna and Tara landed on Roddy's doorstep rather early. A lovely morning and the sun shining down on Stonehaven but didn't have time to go fishing it was back on the road and back home for a late lunch. Tara was lined but it will be a few more weeks before we know if she is in pup. This photo doesn't actually do the sire justice but if you google him he is a very handsome dog.A lot redder than this photo but it is the only one we have.
