Well what can i say about Samson, we decided to keep Samson he is such a character, gets up to all sorts of things one has to be careful what we leave around he will retrieve anything for his own consumption so to speak he even took my sons mobile out to play with, not to mention my ornaments well i could go on forever, but whatever he does in our eyes he is one lovely boy, we called him Samson after his dad but adding the son bit so he is known as Samson. We have been taking him to Ringcraft hoping he will follow in his mum and dads footsteps he has attended a few companion shows and open shows where he has been awarded a first place, and second and reserve and also best puppy in show at one companion show we attended back in March 2010 where he was awarded a silver dish and also a silver cup the cup has to be given back after a year we are so proud of him,

Xante left us and joined Janet & Les back in February 2010, she settled in very well, lots of different smells different noises and lots of love and cuddles, when Xante was able to go out on the lead Janet took her to Ringcraft, where Xante has learnt lots of new things to do, Janet was going to use her for Agility but though that as she had shown dogs that she owned a few years ago decided to take the step and show Xante well she has done really well attending both companion shows and open shows has won a few firsts seconds etc and like her mum whatever show she attends she always comes back with a rosette

When the puppies reached the age of 6 months we had arranged for a puppy reunion at Longleat on the 13th June 2010 we did it at 6 months because we thought it might be nasty weather to meet on the 7th December 2010.
We had such a lovely day the sun was shining we took some food for everybody, all the dogs got on so well together we did wonder if they might have a few words to say to each other but they didn't they all got on really well. It was nice for all the owners to meet and compare notes on each others dogs progress, Kizzie their mummy and also Jane came along with Sam their daddy so that everybody could meet him and vice versa, we took a picture of them all standing in a lineup just like we did when they were still little puppies Watch this space for further updates as we are hoping to have another reunion next June 2011

Charlie left us to go and live with Sharon,Matthew & children, i think he may have been a little monkey at first settling in at night but he soon got over it, he loves the children and i think that he loves to go in the water in fact they cant keep him out of it.

Boris left us and went to live with Maureen & Graham, they have another Goldie so Boris loves to play rough & Tumble as puppies do but one day poor Boris landed awkwardly and unfortunately did something to his back leg but it is well on the way to being sorted out now and he is back to doing what puppies love to do, Maureen takes him to class and he is doing well.
