Pablo left this morning with Ruth and her daughter for their home in London. I have just received an update for Pablo and it sounds like he is already settling in well.
Just a note to let you know that Pablo slept all the way home. He had a bite to eat when we got home and he’s been out in the garden a few times for the toilet and a mad run around. He’s asleep now in his bed. He’s met my daughter’s dog too. I’ve attached some pictures for you and a video.
I’ll update you again tomorrow after we’ve been to have his vaccinations.
Thank you so much, we’re all very excited to have Pablo join our family.
Sue just sent me an update for Rocco as he settles into his new home.
It was lovely to meet you and your husband today along with Rocco, and his mum and dad.
As I said in my text he didn’t even whimper in the car. He was in the crate but I kept the crate door open and sat next to him, when he had finished with his chew, he was happy to fall asleep on my hand which I kept in the crate.
So far he has done all his toileting outside.
After a busy couple of hours exploring and his lunch he put himself back in his crate and slept most of the afternoon. Photo attached with him in the crate along with the toy that has a heat pad and ticking heart. Though he hasn’t needed that to sleep this afternoon!
I want to say a big thanks for such a lovely puppy. It was really kind of you you to pack him such a lovely goodie bag.
Coco left us yesterday and Janet has sent me a couple updates. The first one of her settling in to her home with Janet last night.
Thought you might like a photo of Coco settling into her new home.
Best wishes Janet Janet Rowse"
And the second update about her visit to the vets today.
Just back from Coco’s first check up and vaccine. The vet was delighted with her - said she is the “perfect puppy“ - very healthy, confident and very friendly - she is going to put her on their Facebook page!
Thank you again and hope today’s hand over goes well.
Took this bit of video (below) of Dotty for Susy's family, as our video call got cut short due to bad connection. I caught an interesting moment as Dotty (the smallest of the litter) crossed swords with Teddy (the biggest of the litter). Showing she might be the smallest but she ain't no pushover.
Coco left us this morning with Janet who lives in Somerset. Sweet little Coco who I wish Janet all the best with. Janet emailed me to say they had got home. I did warn her that travelling in the car, she had been a bit noisy to start with, but does eventually settle.
Coco is now home and asleep snoring on my feet. She howled and shrieked all the way to Taunton and then went to sleep But she ate some lunch and is settling in slowly.
Thank you so much to you and your family for looking after her - she is beautiful. Already my house looks like a tornado hit it and it’s lovely!
Blottie's puppies start to leave us this weekend, so busy doing car trips to prepare them for their homeward bound journeys. The first to leave are Coco, Rocco, Pablo and Rory. So we have been busy getting those four out and about.
The beginning of next week we concentrate on Lara, Dotty and Flossie when they start leaving on the next weekend and the week after that we concentrate on getting Teddy, Laika and Bingley ready to leave us.
Pablo went for a trip in our car today and although at first whimpered a bit. He soon settled down and unlike most of the pups he did not go to sleep, but kept an eye and ear on what was going on.
Rory went on his first car trip today. After an initial bit of whimpering, he settled down and went to sleep.
Blottie's ten pups were all microchipped today. All went well and they hardly noticed it being done.
This morning we had snow on the ground, so the pups got to see their first snow. Before I get an email, I do realise in one of the videos I call Rocco, "Coco". Sorry about that, I seem to have some sort of mental block with the name Rocco and Coco.
Teagol has just come off heat, her first heat after having her first litter back in August. When on heat it is the only time we kennel them outside. So today she was glad to be back in the house to help her Mum Blottie with her younger siblings. The first place she went, when back indoors was to check them all out and then lie with them. She is a chip off her mother's block.
In this video Dotty shows no interest in the football, but after taking it and then doing a video call with Susy, who is having Dotty. Whilst on the video call and her siblings were all sleeping she had a good play with the ball.
Rocco yesterday went out for a little car trip to start preparing him to leave us.
And then later on yesterday, when I went to pick one of my children up from work, we took Lara for a trip in her carrier that Kathy sent me for her.

“Humans are aware of very little, it seems to me, the artificial brainy side of life, the worries and bills and the mechanisms of jobs, the doltish psychologies we've placed over our lives like a stencil. A dog keeps his life simple and unadorned.” Brad Watson, Last Days of the Dog-Men: Stories
