Poor Tarnish has had to have an operation today to remove several rather nasty tumours that were growing in her skin. To try and protect the stitches a little, shes now wearing a sparkly pink t-shirt, tastefully arranged over her ears!

A lovely surprise in the post this morning ,it was the official certificate from Warsaw, from The Polish Kennel Club, to confirm that Isabelle is a Junior Polish Champion now.
How sad and disapointing that the KC of GB refuse to recognise this accolade. Thankyou to lenka for campaigning her in Poland for me as a puppy.

yes some of the pups are now over 5 pounds in weight and their appetite for solid food grows each day (good news for my feed rep!) and despite the sleeping photos, they really are running around quite well now.
We have had a busy week with visitors, every day, coming to see their puppies, and one staying with us a couple of days as they are visiting from overseas......we have had a lot of fun and laughterthis week and these pups are certainly going to some fantastic homes!
They finally got named today.....more on that later..... and Ill try and update the blog with some further puppy photos this week .

There will be another small informal bloodhound training day, here , on Thursday Feb 24th for those Farlap hound owners who wish to learn how to get their hounds tracking/hunting.
All Farlap hounds no matter how young or old , are invited to come along and have a go.
All you need to bring is your hound and some energy!
Those who are already hunting their hounds are also welcome to come along and have a practise line.
Provisional plan is:
- morning coffee
- Some hunting training
- a light lunch
- more lines/ sheep training in the afternoon.
The adult hounds had their daily sing song this morning and to my amazement the babies heard them singing and decided to join in....have a look at the video......some of them are even doing it in their sleep!!

Well their eyes are opened, focusing is nearly complete, legs are working....but of course they are still sleeping! One or two troublemakers have now sussed out how to lever themselves out of the box onto the floor......whereupon they shout loudly for assistance!
Meanwhile Tennants feeling rather neglected with all the puppies gettting the attention so thought I should add a photo of him and his daddy, taken on the last day of the woodcock season, thoroughly enjoying themselves!
