Ryan's new agility dog

We have been thinking for some time now that the time has come for Ryan to get a puppy of his own to train from scratch. This past year he has tried really hard to learn as much as he can about training dogs . His relationship with Tippex particularly has come on leaps and bounds. He has also been working other dogs which various people have been kind enough to lend him.

Enter Scribble - After a long hard battle and a lot of help from Lian she finally joined our family last Sunday. Everything was fine until last Friday(the morning we were leaving to go to the KC festival) when I woke to silence which was very unusual as she is a vocal puppy to say the least!!
Scribble had been very poorly in the night and had suffered with vomiting and diarrhoea, she was lying in her cage lifeless. Now we had arranged for our good friends Thelma and Tim to look after her as she was too young to travel to the show they very kindly said they would take her straight to the vets . I was so torn I felt I should stay with her but Ryan had his finals that day at the KC and I didn't want him to miss out either.So off we set leaving her in the capable arms of the vet. She was kept in and thank god started to show improvement that afternoon when she was allowed to go home to Thelma and Tim by the evening.They did a fantastic job of nursing her back to a full recovery and we will be eternally grateful to them.

She will be 9 weeks old on Monday and has settled into our madhouse very well.She is a truly naughty puppy and is keeping us all on our toes.

She is absolutely gorgeous and cute! You are looking after her so well. I hope she continues to bring happiness to your family especially to Ryan.
