Seasonal Greeting from Helen and Hope. Hope is from Ernest and Rosie's litter of eleven pups.
Here is a little Christmas update from Hope at nearly 8 months old. She is such a lovely pup. We are having a few better moments between her and Eowyn, the cat, she even let Eowyn steal her food last night and didn't try to jump on her. However, Hope's idea of play is not quite the same as Eowyn's so we are still having to keep them separate most of the time.
She is very good with work and will settle under my desk, or in the van for a large part of the day, although she is very energetic when she wants to be as well. I am hoping to start agility with her next year, which I think she'll excel at.
We went swimming a few weeks ago at a hydrotherapy pool near Leicester. Considering she doesn't like walking through puddles she did very well. She wasn't brave enough to take the plunge and step off the ramp or steps herself, but when lifted into the water she was a very fast swimmer.
She is now around 7.3kg, and I expect her to be just over 8kg when fully grown. She is not obviously coming into season yet, although she has had a couple of boys very interested in her over the last couple of months - must just be that she's so beautiful!
I hope that all of you at Poundlane have a lovely Christmas, and that all goes well with Blottie's litter in the new year. You do breed such wonderful dogs.

“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
