On his way into SLR with Caroline as I type. Caroline will update later. Now nearly seven weeks old and off to the vets tomorrow for a check-up, this little chap and his 3 litter brothers are coming into SLR today. Caroline is fostering two of them and two will be here. Their owner made the decision to part with them a tiny bit early as she was being asked by not so nice people whether she had lurcher pups, and she was frightened for their safety, and wanted to make sure that they got the best possible homes. She has done an incredible job. These little darlings were the result of her 9 year old rough coat bitch lurcher (never had a litter before) being got at by her daughter's puppy Labrador. All are cream, one deffo rough coated and all beautiful. Well done mum. Mum piccie
I've started toilet training in the garden - the moment they are let out of the crate I encourage a big run for the back door - only problem is Sandy and Penny want to join in too!!
Little Bob is a real cutie, and growing by the day. We've had some big juicy dead worms since we wormed on Friday!! He loves his food and living dangerously - he tried taking Penny's chew off her earlier
Bob's new mum here typing with one finger as Bob is having a cuddle on my knee. Good journey back with not too many tears. Bob is settling in well. The cat is keeping his distance but hasn't left home yet! Will post some photos soon.
Bob now Monty has been settling well at night with the assistance of a warm hot water bottle and a Cai look-a-like soft toy which he cuddles or chews depending on his mood. Will post some photos (have taken quite a few!) when I have a minute.
We've had a lovely update this week from Montys mum Christine
I picked up Monty's first collar yesterday and was amazed to think he could ever have been small enough to wear it. Prompted me into wanting to let you know how this beautiful dog is developing before he gets any bigger (which doubtless he will). He is now 5 months old and weighs just over 16 kg which I know from Macey's Mum is the same weight as Macey. He was smaller at the outset so has clearly caught up. He has lost all his baby teeth and his adult teeth are almost all through. As a result he is wonderfully calm and doesn't want to chew everything in sight. I am told it will not last! He is quick to learn and responds well to training. He is admired by all who meet him and we count ourselves very lucky to have him. He has brought tremendous joy to us all. Hope to meet up sometime with Macey for a walk. Am looking forward to seeing them play together. From the sounds of it they are very much alike. Have just gone to the garden and taken lots of photos.
