She is very laid back and has a super, fleece coat and very dark nose and eyes. At 10 weeks old she is very ready to leave home.
Puppy sales are much slower than they have been for years and the price the labradoodles command is nothing like it was. I guess it is the economic climate and more people breeding.
Our future plan with Labradoodles is to use a miniature or toy poodle as using standard can produce enormous offspring.
The rest of the managere is all fine. Life is so much easier with just 2 horses. The new horse if proving a bit tricky and as we found out recently he is very, very green so we are treating him like a 5 year old even though he is 14
I cannot wait to pick up our Rottweiler puppy. My boys are very excited about her too.
I am going to change some of the grills on the dog boarding to give a 5cm gap as some of the smaller dogs can walk through with ease :).
Christmas bookings are going well so far anyway.

At last the dog boarding is having a lul which gives me time to clean and prepare for our next busy time. The cattery, on the other hand is so busy. I don't know why and long may it continue.
My boys are very busy at school, working hard and preparing for GCSE's and AS levels so the pressure is on for them and I know they will do their very best so finger crossed they do well.

I had no idea concrete block was so porous. My dog boarding kennels is built in it and every time it rains the walls are damp. I am reluctant to put shelves for bedding up as it too will get damp.
My challenge for this week is to paint the outside walls!!!
It has taken me ages as the paint just disappears but I have almost finished the two ends of the building which take in the most being so exposed. I like the look of it painted in magnolia which is a bonus so over time will aim to paint the whole 33 metres. I do like a challenge. :)
