Poor Ink!!

Well off we went for our walk this morning and all of about three minutes later Ink comes back hopping on three legs with blood coming from one of the nails.Back in the car and off to the vet where she had to have a small operation to sort it out.Thankfully nothing too serious but no exercise and certainly no agility for a while.Tonight she is still feeling very sorry for herself but I imagine hopefully by tomorrow she will be back to her normal self although she won't be too impressed with the no exercise rule!!

New Schools

Yesterday was Ryan's first day at High School.Off he went on the school bus very excited and very early( 7.30am) on his own! I found this very hard but he took it all in his stride. He loves his new school and loves being independant.I can't believe my 'baby ' is all grown up.

What a handsome young man

Today was Ailish's turn, she was up and dressed very quickly this morning couldn't wait to be going to school with Sian.The teacher was waiting to see all the new children starting and Ailish was holding my hand very tight but when the time came gave me a big kiss and off she went with a smile.She had a fantastic time and really enjoyed her first day lets hope it continues.

Two smart girls

Tears at Trent Park

Wasn't sure if it was the right thing to do but decided that I should go. I wanted to say a special thank you to all my friends that gave me great comfort on the loss of our little Scribble. I did spend a lot of the day in tears and quite a few of you cried with me ,for those of you that met her knew what a special little pup she was. I did pass on your messages to Ryan and the girls and we are beginning to come to terms with it all now, THANK YOU.

Ink ran her best and won the grade 3-5 jumping and also along with my pairs partner Wendy Fassam with Bod we came 3rd in the Eukanuba mini /mixi .This was our first attempt as both dogs are just babies and have just started competing! Roll on next year!

A very sad goodbye

Not quite sure what to say.This week has been a extremely emotional time.We have had to let our adorable Scribble go.She was taken ill on Monday and was rushed to the emergency vets and then transferred to our own vet on Tuesday morning.After a series of tests we were advised that the kindest thing to do was to put her to sleep. She had severe liver problems and the prognosis was very poor, we didn't want to put her through any more pain.

She was with us for just over two weeks and everyone that met her fell in love,such a cheeky little madam.Her short time with us was filled with fun and laughter and we have lots of lovely memories but for now a big hole in our family where a beautiful,bouncy and playful little puppy used to be.

Sleep well my little one.
