In the Post

At this time of year the postman is busy and arrives almost every day with Christmas cards from friends far and wide.
Delighted I was  to receive a envelope containing a letter telling me I am a finalist in the Ryedale Business Awards  and a ticket for the breakfast and ceremony which will take place on Jan 24th 2017 . I had to tell Rievaulx that I wouldn't be able to pick up that day . I guess the dogs wont mind either as they are working 6 days a week at the moment and with a 300 bird day yesterday and only Rob and I picking up but not such a  hard day today as there was 3 of us picking up. It was nice and frosty this morning but ready for a sit down shortly.

International Help

Recently we had a young helper here ,she was great with the puppies .Don't know who loved who the most. Ede has a  Brazilian mother and a father from Finland but has lived in China must of her life. She was out with these pups every spare minute she had. She would sit playing with them and in turn they can to be cuddled and then fall asleep. Never before have we seen such a sight . And I guess these puppies will understand instructions in more than one language as Ede spoke Portuguese,
Finnish,Chinese and very good English

Busy Bank holiday weekend

Bank Holidays are usually just busy places on the road but we were busy here too. Puppies to walk ,young dogs to train and the addition of a grand litter of Labrador pups the result of a lining between Rollo - Copperbirch Winnebego and Young Ab who is Leadburn Mabel's daughter. They both had a good season picking up at Rievaulx and now they have a litter of very content pups. We know 7 is not a large litter but would rather have them all ok . There was only one dog in the litter and the other 6 were bitches. 4 of them are already spoken for -we are keeping 2 ourselves and the other two will be home within England.
