Puppy day arrived on a very cold and snowy morning, so unfortunately a couple of our new puppy owners could not make it due to the extreme weather conditions, however, puppy day went ahead and we were joined by very happy and joyous new puppy owners.
At 2 1/2 weeks, Lucias beautiful babies began to fade...one by one we lost 5 puppies over the course of five days. To say that I was living a nightmare is an understatement....we have no idea why...we have had 2 autopsies and samples sent to the laboratory ...nothing has shown up. Internal organs were healthy and vets have only to say that it was a virus.
The remaining 5 puppies were completely unaffected and are big bonny babies who are in the process of being weaned.
I'm heartbroken beyond words.
here are the 5* puppies at 3 1/2 weeks
I am overjoyed to announce the safe arrival of Lucia and Hamish beautiful litter of 10. Mum and puppies are doing great...puppies are feeding well and lucia is relaxed and happy being a new mummy.
I was able to give Lucia a quick bath and blow dry whilst Karen came to watch over the puppies and take these gorgeous photos.
What a fabulous morning and what a spectacle to see....our 2017 Argentcymru poodle walk.
Our wonderful Argentcymru family travelled far and wide across Britain to come and join their parents and siblings in a few hours of fun and frolics at Tredegar House. As you will see from Karens photos and the group photo taken by Lewis, the true essence and character of the standard poodle has been caught and recorded at its best. Bright, energetic, mischievous, fun loving, athletic and incredibly happy dogs, the standard poodle just loves to be a part of where the action is.
it was so lovely when Peter and Helen contacted me to see if they could come and meet us for a walk with their lilly x hugo puppy (now 2 years of age) Jessie and of course I was delighted to be able to meet them down at Tredegar Park for an afternoon walk.
Jessie has the look of her mum and height of her dad Hugo.
Such a happy, healthy and sweet girl who loved the playtime with Sassy, Lucia and of course her mum Lilly.
After 10 years living in our house, we decided to change our syorage room into a groom room and in January i hope to be studying my city and guilds level 2 and 3 with Mathew in Neath.
I just wish we had changed the use of this fantastic outside room years ago, but better late then never.
I just love it!
our wonderful boy is now 8 1/2 years of age. As far as I am concerned, he just gets better and better, just like a good wine.
He has the most wonderful temperament, I have never known this boy to ever get into an altercation.
He is a true ambassador for his breed...
Thank you Louis for coming into our lives.
we just love Tredegar House and walk there as often as we can...on this afternoon a few of our friends and family joined karen and myself and as you can see from the photos everyone, including my 2 granddaughters had an enjoyable time.
its always great fun to visit Tredegar House with the dogs and of course my best friend Karen.
After all the fun, we settled at a table for some refreshments and the dogs enjoyed being the centre of attention by all that past by.
when puppies are 4 weeks old, we invite our new puppy puppy parents to come and visit their new addition....this we call puppy day.
on this day, we open up our home between 11am and 2pm where we lay on refreshments such as tea, coffee, cakes and buscuits and where new mums and dads can meet new mums and dads, ask questions and enjoy their time as an argentcymru family
just some updates here and there of our walks and the fun my poodles have on them. All the photos are taken by my very good friend Karen.
