Here we are patiently waiting for the puppies to appear, not yet, but as soon as they 'turn up' we'll let you know on here. When in whelp if the Mother suddenly stops eating then something should happen within the next 24 hours BUT Libby just demolished a full bowl of food!

We lost our Allez today 29th August 2014 through pyometra http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/pyometra-in-dogs/915 .She was due to return to the vets today and have an operation performed which would give her a chance but it seems it wasn't to be. We have lost a very special dog who was very gentle and smart in everyway, we will miss her dreadfully, especially at her favourite place - http://www.darevalleycountrypark.co.uk

Following a scan on Libby today there appears to be 4 to 5 puppies evident. She has another scan next Wednesday, we will report back then. This is a repeat mating, same parents as our Griff's (Morgold Magwitch) litter.

Our Griff (Morgold Magwitch) was entered in the Minor Puppy Dog class at Southern Counties Championship Dog Show today and in a class of 6 dogs he came FIRST!!
We are very proud of Griff but he has (and me!) still got a lot of ringcraft training to do...although in his defence he was the youngest in the class at 6 months and just 1week old. - GO GRIFF!

Quote from the British Veterinary Association "Hip Scoring should be considered along with other criteria as part of a responsible breeding programme, and, ideally, breeders should choose breeding stock with hip scores WELL BELOW the Breed Mean Score (BMS)", for Golden Retrievers that BMS is at the moment 18. Libby has just had her certificate of scoring back from the BVA and her score is 12 - well below the average of 18.
