Lots of photos of the dogs out having fun, if you click on the link and scroll back enough you will also find kitten photos.
The last couple of days has seen a real improvement to Judith's eye :-)
Poirot is now available again as his new family are now expecting a baby, and quite rightly don't feel that this is quite the right time to bring a new kitten into the home. I welcome enquiries about him, but visits will now be after Christmas .

Toto has now got a wonderful home waiting for her, where she will be joining a very special 3 year old toy poodle who is recovering from cancer treatment, hopefully she will be a real tonic to him.
My standard girls are not playing ball with regard to coming into season! Audrey and Dollar should have come into season in October, they both have lovely boys waiting to whisper sweet nothings in their ears, so I hope they hurry up (though not over Christmas please girls)
Dime went in for hip score xrays today, they looked good to me but I have to wait a few weeks before her score is evaluated. I have also decided to DNA test some of my dogs for various genetic conditions, this will be done in January and the results will of course go on my website

It's been a tough week for poor little Judith, after her 1st visit to the vet she deteriorated and stopped suckling from her mum, she was obviously in a lot of discomfort, despite me syringe feeding her she lost a lot of weight in a very short space of time, needless to say I was very worried. Back to the vets we went and she is now having daily antibiotic injections, these have worked miracles and she is a much much happier kitten, we still have a way to go with her eye but I now feel much more optimistic about her :-)
Both litters of kittens are now homed, but Toto is still waiting to meet her new family. She is now 7 weeks old and is quite simply gorgeous! She would suit most family situations as she is so confident, she would probably make a good agility dog as she is not going to be a tiny toy (though she should stay under 11"). She is already clean in her pen overnight and we have started putting her in the garden to 'powder her nose'.at regular intervals, she is a good eater and not at all yappy. I really need to find her a wonderful home soon as the longer she stays, the harder it will be to let her go, and with 2 litters of standard poodles coming soon (I hope) it really wouldn't be the sensible thing to do!
