Pup-dates from theB litter

Weve had some great photos and emails from some of the "B" litter this weekend.
Monty (Farlap Bertok) in Somerset is clearly superior......every photo seems to involve him lording it on the sofa or overlooking his country estate! Miss Eden (Farlap Bargain) in Cumbria on the other hand seems to share her time between cuddles on the bed and the very serious job of tracking. Finally Bertie, who has completely taken over the sofa.

Well done to George (Farlap Guesswork) in Russia on becoming a full Russian Champion this week, and winning his group as well! We are so proud of you and your mummy Maria.

The Life of Brian!

Those who remember "Brian" who was the biggest character from the recent litter (and who went on to become "Farlap Bran") will be glad to hear hes having a really fun time in his new home.
His "mantrailing" tuition has now started, and with the help of another police handler, hes been doing quite difficult tracks (in terms of the conditions underfoot). Here he is at work, and also showing that even top Police dogs have to relax sometimes!!!

A lovley surprise arrived today in the form of this stunning photo taken by the talented Amelia Siddle, and showing Candle entering the group ring at WELKS. Lovely thanks Amelia.

Wedding? what wedding?

On bank holiday Friday I took Candle up to West of England Ladies Kennel Society (WELKS) and was thrilled to get the CC with her, and then also BOB under breed specialist Ken Miller.
After hanging about nearly 6 hours, and Candle getting very bored indeed, we finally went in for the group........and couldnt believe it when we were shortlisted into the final 6 and was nearly struck dumb when Zena Thorn Andrews pulled Candle out 2nd in the group. Someone said there was a big wedding on the same day but I was so wrapped up in my own "fairy tale" I never saw even a glimpse of it on the telly!!!
