An Update on the pups

Litter 2011 soon after they were born

Who could have believed that these helpless little creatures could grow up and become happy settled dogs in new families in a matter of four months!  Today I am doing an update on the pups to celebrate!

This is Dougal (Derbyshire) who was one of twins and had little grains of brindle around his little

ears and under his cute little butt.  We used to call him “Fiesty Green’ and then Brown Boy (when his collar fell off and he got a brown one (confusing?  Only to other people we found lol) He now lives with N. in Mansfield who kindly sent me an update yesterday.  Dougal M has settled in well and has learned lots of commands and follows N. when she is riding her horse (don’t worry they don’t do fast gallops and things).  Here is a piccy of Dougal sent by N:

Dougal with his ears standing up - as he is now!

N. reports that she is stopped everywhere by admiring peeps who just loves Dougal and he lives a country life with lots of pets and his big sister looks after him.  We think he is very similar to his mum, Bonny.

Then there is Max:

Max has settled in well with his doggie pal Sam who is a Westie.  Max was the first puppy to work out how to get out of the pen (if the bottom bolt was left undone) and he used to trot into the lounge (victorious) and spend time with us until he got tired.  This pair (Sam and Max) are a lot of fun together and his owners M and E sent these over:

Max and Sam know how to have fun and here they are supplementing their diets from a well used source:

I dont know why, but Max was the hardest to let go.  Maybe it is because he was so like Hector (empathetic) but I am delighted his peeps chose him, because he is having a great life.
Then there is Dougal (Southampton) who’s owners kindly send texts with updates.  Dougal S is doing well and he is now living with a Standard Poodle called Bella who is already fond of him. When he was little Dougal liked to know where his peeps were and would come in from the garden just to check he loved cuddles.  His best litter friend was Max.  We do not have any up to date piccies of Dougal S but here is one when he was little:

Now Izzy was the smallest puppy and we took extra care ensuring she got milk and food.  Little did we know, but Izzy became the most confident, boistrous and noisy puppy of them all!

Izzy used to cause havoc among the litter (stealing something, pouncing on someone unexpectedly or just being a general nuisance) and then run and hide under the sofa.  She is now settled and living in Burton with daughter’s fiance’s family. 

Finally there was the puppy we nicknamed “Big Girl” and she has gone to a breeder who lives in Derbyshire (and we got Lucy in exchange).  Big Girl loved digging holes (we still fall into them now) Everywhere! We are told she lives on a farm and has settled well.  Here is a Piccy of Big Girl the day she left us:

Watching the puppies grow up was among the happiest experiences I (Hector’s Hooman) ever had but knowing the puppies are all settled and well is just wonderful.  Thank you Puppy Peeps for taking these puppies and we wish you happy days and endless sun.

Roll on Litter 2012!*

    They are SO PRECIOUS!!!

    By the way, I saw your question about participating in the picnic. For you overseas folks, you will be able to participate in the dunk tank and sack race. Each will cost $1 and you will be able to participate via paypal. I think the directions will be posted on Frankie’s blog. There will also be lots of fun free activities – a flower show, bug contest, and a fashion show! For the most up-to-date details, check out Frankie’s blog. It is going to be SO MUCH FUN!

    Your pal, Pip
