Wednesday and we hear from Enid who is reporting for Wales today
Maureen is good with a pair of shears as well as scissors!!!
Hello from South Wales where the sun is shining for a change. We went to visit Diane Herbert to see her puppies. They are three weeks old and Ecco is the Dad. Luck was on her side for once because she wanted a girl for herself and another for a lady who has been waiting patiently, for a year, for a blue bitch. Misty had two blue bitches and Diane was very pleased because she didn't have to worry about finding good homes for any other pups. They look really healthy and have really thick coats. I'll let you know how they are progressing. I've had a lot of emails from the people who had pups from Fizz's litter and they are all getting on well. Crispin, in London, is going to puppy classes and is great friends with a Labradoodle called Rufus. Vernon is going to ringcraft and obedience and Les will be pleased to know that Melvyn is doing very well at Agility so Louise has got her hands full.Big Mo has found another use for her scissors - topiary! She has given me this conifer and has started the spiral pattern so its up to me to keep it up. I wonder if anyone has clipped a shrub into a Bedlington shape? I wouldn't mind having a go. I suppose you would have to make the shape with chicken wire and grow something like box or privet around it -over to to Trevor- I need professional advice! We could have a topiary competition next year and call it "Best in Shrub".Elwyn has two medical appointments this week, one for his shoulder and he is having his other cataract removed on Friday, so good luck . Maureen is going to wait this time because by the time she got home the last time the hospital was ringing to tell her Elwyn was ready to be collected. At long last the fur on Fizzs' back has started to grow after the allergic reaction to a well known brand of flea prevention. I think she will have a big area of black guard hairs so we'll have to call her Patch instead! I eventually got around to counting up Ecco's points at Open Shows and he has now got his Show Certificate of Merit.Hope to see some of you at LKA,
Thanks Enid well done to Ecoo for gaining his Certificate Of Merit. What fun "Best In shrub" competition besides Big Mo I don't think there are too many green fingered Bedlington owners to make a good entry! Now there's a challenge for our professional bedlington Gardener " Trevor" he would have the skill to grow and sculpt a bedlington bush! Good luck to Elwyn on Friday, it is great for him to have the operation done during the winter when it is too cold for caravan fishing trips! What lovely puppies Diane must be over the moon to have two bitches and not have to worry about finding homes. The stalk somehow always brings me little boys!!
