Labrador pups tucking in ...

....and not a Yorkshire puddings in sight. The weeks are flying by and the pups are gradually getting on to solid foods and depending less on their mother.We like to get the pups fully weaned at 5 weeks old . They will be then be fed 5 times a day before they go to their new homes they will be done to 4 meals a day.

Cuckavalda Red Caz and his sister Nelly

Just thought you may like to see the pedigree of our latest stud dog Cuckavalda Red Caz. He is already a proven sire to 8 pups born the other week .His pedigree is outstanding and very much up to date as far as names in the FTCH world goes. Billy Steel's FTCH Copperbirch Paddy of Leadburn who has been in the running at the IGLS for the last year is the sire. Paddy is half brother to Rollo our fox red stud dog .Their mother was the famous FTCH Ernvale Maud of Tudorcourt -the top retriever in Ireland in 2008. She features twice in his pedigree as she is also granddam on the dam side of Cuckavalda Jilly June's pedigree. We think it is easier for you to look and study the pedigree for yourself.Jack got a bit carried away with the red amrker but you can count at a glance 37 FTCH in the pedigree. Jill herself will not be having any pups in the foreseeable future as we are happy she is learning her way around the shooting field first before settling down to have some pups.
