FEBRUARY

Saturday 27th February -

Today we travelled way down south to the Southern ESS Society Championship show, I must admit this is one of my favourite shows of the year and of course the day we all get to see our fabulous yearbook. I was really ready to get back in the ring having had a few weeks off and thankfully Reggie seemed to be too.

I was delighted when Reggie was placed 2nd in his first ever Limit class, with him doing so well towards the end of last year I was really hopefully the rollercoaster wasn't going to be taking a dip and my Roo Roo once again did me proud in some very good company.

The puppies continue to thrive and today begins the messy task of weaning Gracie's litter - baby wipes at the ready and lots of them!!!!!

Nothing much happening really other than watching the puppies grow stronger and bigger every day. My girls have been super and I'm so very proud of them both. Another week or so and the work will really begin when weaning begins on Gracie's litter, I'm just enjoying the calm before the storm, so to speak. Added a few more pics to Gracie's litter page and up dated the Dwarf's Diary. Need to start on Reggie today the massive furr ball who by next week will (hopefully) be in full show jacket for the Southern ESS Champ Show.

Great news, Babs's puppies have arrived, like Gracie she simply couldn't wait until a Monday when Mummy was supposed to be at work so she delivered a little early on Saturday. What sweet girls I have timing their whelpings over a weekend.

Things didn't go quite a smoothly as with Gracie but Mother and babies are all doing well. More news and pics to follow soon on what we have named our "Valentines".

I can't believe we nicknamed Gracie's babies the Dwarfs - they're are simply enormous and getting stronger (and nosier) by the day. Gracie continues to be a fantastic Mother, very attentive and gentle.

Well the puppies are now a little over a week old and blimey are they piling on the pounds (well ounces really)!!! Gracie is still being a very good Mum which makes life so much easier.

Shock horror struck yesterday when I realised it's only five weeks to Crufts, decided I simply must bath Reggie and at least start thinking about getting him back into "show condition" - I think this may take some time - lol, exploded mattress doesn't even come near.

Babs is looking rather matronly now, she seems to have hidden her pregnancy well right up to the past week where a distinct waddle has developed.

New puppy pics added to the litter page
