The Graduate!



Congratuations to Farlap Bargain.....aka "Eden" who lives in Cumbria. She has just completed her 6 week puppy course and graduates this week! What a proud Granny I am!

Clearly all that effort is hard work for a girl as you can see from this photo of her relaxing at home afterwards.
Living in such a stunning area means we get to see lovely pix of her on the beach and mountains......heres my favourites from this week, enjoying herself at the beach.

Day Tripper





Weve had 2 lovely "day trips" this week with some of the hounds. Todays was to visit two of our puppies who live in East Devon, Farlap Constant and Farlap Bartholomew, and I took Baffle, Issy and Gert along to have a romp with their half brothers/cousins.

Ten and a half and going strong!

videoA few people have asked how "Fergus" is recently so just to prove theres life in the old chap at ten and a half, here he is on our field walk earlier this week. Still a puppy at heart, and still more than capable of flattening his mum with the video camera!
Our "scouting" software that we use on the www.farlap-photography.com site also runs on the bloodhound site, and image theft, by downloading, saving , copying etc is taken very seriously and there will be invoices going out this week to the recent download thieves. You ARE tracable and the first invoice this month will be sent to the RVC (IP address) that recently downloaded two puppy images from the blog. Remember that all images on this site are protected by copyright, and any form of downloading, reproduction or transmitting is illegal.

Imposter


technically there really is a bloodhound in the photo, you just have to look a bit harder! Having just one surving pheasant chick, we felt a bit sorry for him/her, so decided to pop one of the puppies toys in and see what happened.....chick is now completely obsessd by it and thinks it is its mother!! I hope that he/she doesnt think the same about the real bloodhounds or there could be a disaster!
Its been an eventful couple of weeks since I last wrote the blog. Sadly we lost our Czech hound Cythar after a brave struggle on his part. His character really took over when he arrived in 2007 so hes greatly missed: although Bas has now appointed himself "King Pin" in his absence.
We went to the club Championship show at the weekend, and although not very successful in the ring (Gerty won her class, but Bas and Candle each came 3rd in theirs), it was great to meet up with "Miss Bliss" (farlap Blissful), whom we havent seen since she left us at 8 weeks old, and she had some fun with her brother Baffle. Also saw Gracey again, who improves each time we see her......rather like michaels handling :))
