The latest puppy update


Dogs by the stream Gosh where do I begin? To continue the ongoing updates on the new puppies, they’re now 5 months old; chewing their way round the garden (I gave up trying to right the upturned flower pots in the end!).

Daisy and Gracie the two little chocolate Labradors are now not so little – they're roughly just over half adult height.  They’re taking their lead from the other dogs and learning to love the water!

There’s a stream on our dog walk, and they’re building up courage to go wading like Holly and Patch do. In this pic, they’re all resting after a paddle – can you see Holly still at it in the background?!

Shame the weather’s turned again recently, the rain has stopped them going outside to play – they’re just like kids!! Hehe. They’re going stir crazy here in my kitchen as I write this. In fact, Lauren’s just come home and is playing with Gracie – they’re picking up actions now too!

Gracie learns 'down' and 'over'

I'll be sure to keep you posted on their latest antics soon.

    The trio look wonderful sitting in the grass, we have had Gorillas in the mist, now we have ‘Labradors in the Grass’.
    Might not be the greatest title in the world but I’m sure it could start your creative juices going,how about a childrens book with these gorgeous ready made principals as the stars. Its a once in a lifetime chance to remember this lovable group
    I thought your evening show with Glen was really funny tonight,do you think he will ever get you to remember all his fashion rules?
    I hope not, you stay as you are Debbie.Give Patch a pat and an extra biscuit from me.

    My friend at work has asked me to look after her chocolate labrador for the weekend – can’t wait! Not sure my cat will be so keen as it’s a long time since she had to share her space with another animal … I can see trouble brewing. Should make for an interesting couple of days…and nights!

    Ahh – bless you Marg I will – poor patchy was off her food this morning, even refused her ‘joint-care chew’, but did succumb to a (small) chip at dinner time from our dinner – so she’s probably on the mend! Little madam Gracy is struggling a bit with her running too, but am sure it’s nothing major – will be getting them checked out again on the next vet visit which is next week so will keep you informed!
    Yes being on with Glenn was a joy – he’s such fun! Glad you enjoyed it! You should have seen the face he made in the break when he told me to take the red belt off the black TSV cost! hehe! I’ll learn…one day! lol

    Karin – how old is the lab? How did it go? Did the cat leave home? 🙂 x

    Hi Debbie,
    Big disappointment as Hope, the chocolate lab, didn’t come after all due to change of plans – but another weekend of dog sitting is on the cards soon. Gypsy (the cat) very relieved I think! Sorry to read that your puppy has not been well.
    Was reading your blog on the Broom Cupboard days – was listening to Andy Crane on Radio 5 talking about it the other night. He said that he still gets people coming up to him saying how much they used to enjoy watching it – must be nice to have been a part of a show that is so well remembered.
