The Mystery Revealed

Hello everyone - Caoimhe here again. Well you may remember that Magic whispered to me in her last post about that strange message on the chocolate Santa. The chocolate Santa is no more as Leigh has eaten him! And she said human chocolate is very bad for dogs so we got none of it :-( ....but I do know what the message meant and I'm going to let you in on the secret while Magic is out of the way.

If you could read the Santa's message OK it said DARKSPRITE and that is the name which the Kennel Club have said Leigh & Judith can use as their 'breeder's signature' or 'affix'. They are going to breed miniature schnauzer puppies now and again so they can have their own to show and good healthy puppies for other peeps to have as pets. Here in the UK if you are a good breeder you will register the puppies with the Kennel Club and they ask you to choose an 'affix' which will be part of your dog's Kennel name. You have to offer 6 choices and Leigh & Judith got their 5th choice just before Christmas. Me and Magic are 'Silversocks' girls at the moment because that was our breeder's affix.

Oh just checking that Magic isn't on her way back - 'cos there's more to tell! Magic was too shy to say but she's the one who may be the mother of the first litter of pups. Judith & Leigh have found a smart stud dog for her to meet and hope he may be the one for her :-) Oops I think I hear her coming in and I wouldn't want her to know I've told everyone her secret. She may not mind and perhaps she will tell you more another day - otherwise I'll have to just sneak on the computer and let you know myself!
 And just so Magic doesn't catch on what I've been telling you, here's a picture of another bird that visited our garden over Christmas:

It's a greater spotted woodpecker and it really loved the peanuts! Will keep you posted on other news...!

  9. Nice one! I like DarkSprite, too. Does it have anything to do with those bottled drinks? Or is it like a fairy thing?

    I can't wait for the cute puppy pictures you guys will be uploading.

    Well, now I know you guys are from the UK.

    Huggies and Cheese,

  11. Congratulations on the affix. :)

    I know the process of picking out preferences... I, luckily, got my first choice of 'Leema' - but I was running out of options by the time I got to my 7th and 8th preference... My 7th preference was 'Overalls' and my 8th was 'Chair'.

  12. Happy New Year, Magic and family! Thanks for sharing this exciting news.... can't wait to see puppy pictures.

    All the best in 2012!

    Your friends,
    Momo & Pinot
