Teagol gives Rosie a helping paw with her large brood at fifteen days old.
Rosie's puppies all have their eyes open to some degree and each day now are getting more mobil.
Rosie this morning (below) suckling her pups. Will hope to blog later with lots of photos from the last couple days. Super busy at the moment with some other things I am trying to tie up before these little pups become mobil and the real fun begins.
Amazing to think that a week ago today Rosie gave birth to her pups. At one week old they are all doing really well and Rosie is proving to be an exceptional mother. In the next few days we should start to see their eyes starting to open.
Rosie and her pups are doing really well. Tonights photos I've labelled a few of the photos to show which are the three boys of the litter. The rest are obviously all girls.
Teagol with her Mum (below). Teagol is the same mix as Rosie's pups. She also shares the same Dad, so she is also their half-sibling.
At two days old, all seems to be going well. Rosie is so relaxed about it all and all her pups seem to be thriving.
As promised more photos of the arrival of Rosie's pups along with photos taken throughout their first day. Pups seem to all be doing okay and Rosie is being exceptional. Very laid back about it all.
For those contacting me at this time about Rosie's litter. Please read Getting A Puppy From Poundlane
thoroughly to know price for 2021 and how we do things. At this moment I am more concerned about rearing the litter on, than homing the puppies.
This morning Rosie gave birth to her first pup at 3.10 am and the last at 6.37 am. She has had an amazing eleven pups. Three boys and eight girls. No tricolours, three black and white with the rest Blenheim. I will blog later with more photos. The birth was very calm and very quick, and with a couple pups needing assistance to clear fluid from airways it was not so easy to take many photos during the birth, but I still have a far few. Rosie has taken to being a Mum, like a duck to water. Simple amazing with fingers crossed all rear on well.
We also have been struck by tragedy this week with suddenly losing Smudge on Wednesday and is why lack of blogging as we came into Rosie's birth. I will blog about the passing of Smudge, when I feel up to it.
One of our children caught this photo (below) of mother and daughter resting after they had been on an escapade. Someone had left our gate slightly open. They were soon found in the woods across from us. Both chips off Millie's (Blottie's maternal Grandmother) block.
A couple weeks ago I received the photo (below) of a rather wet Bella. Bella is from Casper and Blottie's litter of nine little Blenheim pups
Hi Jane Bella's looking forward to a haircut on Thursday - same day as us! But she's clearly not worried about waiting for warmer weather - only a few degrees above freezing and she decided to go for a swim. And then promptly ran into a mud swamp. I'm sure it was just so she could have a warm shower. Such an intelligent dog you bred! Judith x
Got an up date for Otto a couple weeks ago at four months old from Helen. Otto is from Ernest and Blottie's litter of ten again
I've been meaning to email you for weeks and weeks, apologies for not being in touch recently.
We do check your blog most days though and it's lovely to see Rosie blossoming. We think she is one of the most beautiful and striking bitches ever and wish you all the best with her pregnancy and litter.
Our darling Otto is just the most wonderful family dog, everything we hoped for and more.
He is so trainable and happy to please. He LOVES water and even when it is freezing, he loves a swim. Such a game and enthusiastic dog, he loves being outside as much as possible, which is handy, as we do too! We do a lot of mud removal and towelling off in our house!!
We are very lucky that even during lockdown, we have been able to get onto Dartmoor lots, as well as all the local woods and fields. Otto is the perfect joyful walking companion and his recall is 99% perfect (unless he spots a squirrel....).
We met up with Saffy and Lara recently and I have attached a pic of the happy trio.
Hoping to meet up with his other siblings and their humans this summer.
All the best with everything,
Helen, Al, Romilly and Otto xx"

From 2021 our puppies will now be £2000 due to massive rise in prices of puppies and our concerns that not putting our price up to reflect the market and discourage unscrupulous interest in our puppies, we put our pups at risk of being sourced to be sold on for profit. We also have had to factor in the rise of veterinary fees and general costs.
“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
