Since blogging a couple days ago with my concerns about families being able to collect their pups from Blottie's litter come the time they need to leave, I have since contacted DEFRA and received this advice about Buying or adopting a pet which states 'Breeders and rescue centres should make arrangements to deliver your pet to you when it is ready to be rehomed. Where this is not possible, and it is reasonably necessary for the pet’s welfare, you may collect the animal. You should collect your pet by appointment only.'
As it is not possible for me to deliver the puppies at the distance some are from me on this litter due to commitments I have with family, animals and work, and it is reasonably necessary for a puppy's welfare to be in it's new home sooner rather than later. I believe this fulfills the criteria that a puppy from Blottie's litter can be picked up by the purchaser.
I have emailed all those who have contacted me so far on this litter who reside outside of the county I am in who have contacted me since my blog about my concerns. I am sorry to have caused any undue stress or worry. as you have all been patiently waiting and getting a puppy from me has been a long time coming for you all. Fingers crossed we are all back on track now.

“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

Why I don't export
Our breeding dogs are multi generational extensively health tested. With all our breeding stock having recommended and relevant DNA tests for their breed/breeds. We also have breeding stock annually eye examined on the BVA Hereditary Eye Disease Scheme for dogs, MRI scanned on the BVA scheme using the BVA chiari malformation /syringomyelia breeding protocol, and heart examined using The Kennel Club Heart Scheme for Cavalier King Charles breeding protocol
