Puppies – Friday 6th July 2008

The puppies are getting used to the boat yard routine. At 6pm on Friday they walked over to Steve’s car, ready to go to the pub.

I’m glad that Fern is staying – she and Molly seem so happy together.

The Boy took this picture of ‘nose to paw’.

Fern is also clearly happy to be with Steve.

[Apologies for the qualities of these pics. My camera ‘phone takes very grainy pictures when flash is used.]

The Puppies’ First Walk to the Queen’s Head

The Boat Yard pups had their jabs yesterday and celebrated by walking to the pub. As you can see it was rather tiring. Fern (the puppy previously known as ‘no name’) has elongated somewhat.

Here is Molly showing off her new lead and chunky paws.

[In case you’re wondering, they had a lift back to the Boat Yard]

Puppies Ahoy!

Yesterday, I ambled down to a ‘secret location’ in Eynsham, to see a couple of 8 week old collie pups. This is the ‘shy one’ – she is going to be a surprise present (lucky recipient!)

This is Molly – the larger, more outgoing pup. She is going to be a bargee hound.

Here are the two of them. They are beautifully soft…they move around to fast to photograph if you put them on the ground!

“All right Mr. De Mille, I’m ready for my closeup,”

“I want to run around and play…”

Which Puppy for Anastasia?

Huw has finally caved in, and the delicious Anastasia is going to have a dog! However, she has a problem. Which of these five delightful puppies should she choose (there are two photos of each on the linked page)?
Adam likes the black and tan one; I, naturally, have homed in the slightly hopeless looking black and white one at the bottom.

Post your vote here, and I’m sure Anastasia will let us know which puppy she finally selects.
