Just when I thought it was safe to get my supper and get to bed Lisa rang to say that Fidget had decided to start whelping. She wasn't due until Thursday but she was such a size I think she had no option! Two pups had decided to arrive together and this was not going to happen so I had to manipulate one back to get the first one born. After that they came regularly and all were good strong pups. 4 bitches and 3 dogs and it looks like there are 3 greys. I had expected some as Fidgets' sister, Flic, is grey as is Bruine. It was a long night but lovely to see Fidget happy with her brood.
Training Tuesday and Wednesday with Cello and Crusoe. Cello blotted his copybook when he nipped off on the way to his retrieve to grab some yummy chocolate cake that had been brought to celebrate Davids' win in B. Joan makes the best choc cake and Cello just loves it--he did go and do his retrieve afterwards, then washed his cake down with some elderflower wine!
Crusoe is very laid back about his lessons and watches from an upside down position most of the time! (photo below)
