update on the little man of the house...

Well, most of the time, he can be found here....


Or here......





(He's grown hasnt he?...how handsome??!!)........

But sometimes bunny comes out to play!.....

Ted, LOVES bunny, she used to make a boing noise when you squeezed her but today, she just had to be washed, and now she no longer makes the noise but i dont think that'll make a huge difference to him. On saturday we had our first training session, there were about 8 or 9 other puppies and just did some basic retrieving and whistle work. Bunny came with us, and true to form Ted couldnt resist racing after her and bringing her back to me. I was really really pleased as our trainer said that shows promise with regards to picking up birds on shoots. Now we have homework of working on some basic whistle work, so far so good, so with lots more practice im sure he's gonna make me proud!



This evening after a long day, someone decided it was time to swap beds......

It wasnt Murphy....

He's an absolute sweety!Looks like he is going to be very easy to train bless him. Bella has a toy duck which she loves called 'Mallard'...but last night she got carried away and now he has a hole in his side and a bit of stuffing has been chewed.She's nearly three and still chewing!

Wonderful pictures - I am going to have to show my spaniel-mad mother. She casually threw into the conversation on Friday that they are thinking of getting a second, a friend for Nell. They usually do have two and it's a few months since they lost Monty so I'm not surprised :-)

But Humphrey rabbit got a bit upset when he read the post, he felt there was a spot of bunny abuse going on, lol!!!

Love Charlotte

Oh I love the top picture of him lying in the sun, while the rest is all shady - excellent!

Ted is SOOOOO cute! I don't normally like dogs much but I will make an exception for him, he looks so cuddly and good natured.

He's going to be a right old fluffy bunny isn't he. Just scrummy ! Good luck with the training. I'll be on to Grade 2 this Spring (fingers crossed). Archie, being a rescue, does have some issues bless im .. but my trainers said he had huge potential. Hmm ... we'll see x
