Default The secret may be out...

We have decided, out of the blue, to have a new addition to our family. Betty is 12,5 and slowing, Carys is 11,5. Betty is slowing down a lot and Carys has a history of the C word. We didnít want Lulu to ever be an only dog.

So we will be welcoming ďOut of the Blue of Tintagel WindsĒ at the beginning of September. Iíve just driven a 1000 mile round trip to take a look and select two that might be.......MR Right! A black, whose mum is a half sister to Betty.

It was wonderful, my first solo trip for years, but I did it! Spent a few hours chatting with an amazing lady, learnt a **** of a lot and met a whole bunch of incredible labradors, several of whom I could happily have smuggled home, not to mention 9 puppies!

Hopefully I can attach a video of turquoise and royal blue who might become Mr Right. Call name currently under discussion.

I spent a fabulous few hours chatting with Felicity and learnt a lot about DNA testing, got to meet her boys and girls..just my perfect type, probably not necessarily yours though. She has several Charlie offspring born by AI from frozen semen. A miracle in itself. One really fabulous boy from a litter born in January 2017 who never got sold but has grown into magnificent lad. Well out of my purse range though.

My very first boy, Iím so excited.

How exciting. I had to smile when I heard the other dogs being told to be quiet, so many of the videos taken in my house include me doing the same. You can never travel too far for the right puppy. Have you got a short list of names?

I met her at Crufts some years back. Felicity was standing outside the Gamekeepers ring and Kira had a dog in the ring, saw us both and introduced us.

Actually itís a very English accent, Felicity is British through and through despite living in France for donkeys years. Funny how it sounded French to you, maybe she does but I donít notice. The dogs barking were the two Mummy dogs barking at the wood delivery man who was in their yard, so quite justified.

Names are still going round...we have Myson, Merlin, Junior, Max

You have to listen very closely to pick up a little French accent in the voice. Actually I think her daughter sounds more French than her.
