Lovely update for Saffy and Lara from Kathy. Saffy is from Ernest and Bumble's litter of eight and Lara is from Ernest and Blottie's litter of ten again.
"Dear Jane and extended dog family
I don’t know where the time has gone but I am writing to update you about Lara - Blottie and Ernest’s last litter, and of course update you on Saffy. Not sure where to start - but what a live wire Lara is - playful, funny with an amazing jump and incredibly affectionate - and v v independent, which will get her into trouble or and a hole digger , looking for mice I think - has caught a few . So different from Saffy who is very quiet by comparison - but they both have the same sweet natures - Lara’s mission in life is to catch a pigeon (managed tail feathers only to date) or a seagull - getting v wet in the process and butterflies - which I think she eats. Saffy on the other hand is a squirrel chaser - but no chance there!
They generally get on well, increasingly so. I think there was some rivalry for my attention at first but now they play together happily and I am pleased to say that Saffy remains top dog even though she is smaller now. Both love the water, especially Lara.
Anyway I hope you enjoy the pictures. Maybe we can visit when passing by?
Thanks for your kind message on my blog on seeing Teagol is no longer with us.
I thought it would be interesting to hear about Lara compared with Saffy. Watching the bit of video above is like watching their Mum's together as younger dogs. Blottie has always been super confident, super agile and loves water, whereas Bumble is that bit more reserved about life. Both Mum's are super affectionate with Blottie maybe being a bit more demanding of affection than Bumble.
If you are passing one day. It would be lovely to see you all.

“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
