Retirement for Lizzie (Collison Risk)

Lizzie has gone to live with her daughter Mo (Feral Helen) at Mildred and Rons. She has settled in really well and seems to be enjoying herself.

Busy day at the Trials.

Took all four Pups to Addington Christchurch this morning. The weather was awful with a cold drizzle making it unpleasant for both dog and handlers. Gave Dexter and Dove their first look at the track and to be honest Dexter took to it well but Dove looked completely lost so will take her back for a handslip next week. The wide open spaces sometimes makes it difficult for some dogs to concentrate and this was certainly the case with Dove.
 The other two Daisy and Darth had a two dog trials with Ray Caseys pups and the all went inside grading time and broke the 18 barrier which was pleasing to see. Hopefully they will improve and the more experience they get running with other dogs the better they will become.

Kennel News

Picked up Dexter and Dove from Bruce Danns on Saturday. Pleased with how they have broken in. They will get a bit of rest now seeing that they have been full on for 4 weeks.
The other two Darth and Daisy had their first look of the wide spaces at Addington today. They were slipped and both chased hard and railed well. Their times were pleasing seeing that it was their first look at the track. They will go back in a weeks time.

Minnie's New Home

We just received this lovely email and these beautiful photos of Minnie aka Feral Hoki,  our kennel sweetheart, that was re-homed through Nightrave and Tracy recently. 

"Thank you so much to Minnie's trainer and family, for bringing up such a beautiful dog.  Her gentleness, friendliness and calmness blows me away every day!  She has settled in so quickly and she is just so easy to love!!"

Sat 29th April... Another day schooling

Took the dog and the bitch to the schooling track again today. Walked them through the boxes a few times and then put the lids down and gave them a blast out of them. Both took to them really well and Darth was a natural and came out very well. Both ran well with Darth showing a little more than Daisy but not by much. 

News from Bruce is that both the dog and the bitch are going good and will be ready to be collected next week.

Ben is now in the house and has already settled in. He gets on well with Charlie the Retriever and has not troubled the cat at all.

Busy day at the kennels today. Took 2 to the OTB trial track this morning. Always nervous when they are having their first handslip but both Darth and Daisy chased the lure which was great to see. Hopefully they will progress over the next few weeks.
Two other of the litter, the more mature dog/bitch Dexter and Dove were taken to Bruce Danns place to be broken in. 

Digby below before he left.
Talking to Bruce he reckons Digby who has been there for 2 weeks is progressing nicely.
