I thought I would start today's post with a fun photo as it has been a little bit sad this weekend for me. Two of my pups have gone to their new homes - which is good really as they will have such a lovely life with their new families but I do miss them. As you can see from this photo the two who are left are not missing them as much as me! This is Trilby and Merlin having a good game of bitey face in the garden.
Trilby is my little girl (her kennel name is Darksprite Rosa Bud) and she was chosen to stay in our family by Judith & Leigh. Here she is smelling the rosemary. Her name is after the title character in a novel by George DuMaurier but everyone keeps saying she is named after a hat!
This is Merlin (Darksprite Solomon Daisy) he is one of my boys and the people who were going to take him decided not to so for the moment he is staying here too. If we can find a good home for him when he has finished his vaccinations he will go too ..and if not he will stay and maybe go showing with his sister :-) His pet name is Merlin because he is a child of Magic and so he is named after the wizard in the King Arthur tales. All the pups have kennel names from characters in novels by Charles Dickens as 2012 is the 200th anniversary of his birth. I have some very literary puppies BOL!
This is Caoimhe checking that Trilby is not getting up to mischief...
...and Aoife babysitting Merlin
and one last photo of my little boy who went to his furever home yesterday - Darksprite Barnaby Rudge (Smudge)
Have fun little Smudge - we're thinking of you!
