Hi one and al!
I have my new keyboard which I finally managed to get connected and working! Bad news is that my plug in keeps disconnecting so I lose al connections - only happens just after the extended warranty runs out.
Mother is here, bless her, she has enjoyed the company as there are people in and out all the time. She is enjoying watching National Geo. which se doesn't get at her home.
I came back up from the stables to find that she had cleared out the under the sink cupboard - I fully admit that it needed doing but she could not put it back!
Whilst doing that I continued and did the cupboard where I keep all my cooking dishes. I knew she would move onto trying to do that one but wold not be able to hold the weight of the dishes!
Weather has been cold with heavy showers. I was working one of the youngsters i the arena when it started to rain. Of course, at that point Basil decided that it was time to go in. I had to work him through it by which time the rain was heavier. He was still arguing so had to continue, then it started to hail. I told him that if he just did two laps correctly we would go in! He did finally go nicely despite the weather, by which time I was white with the hail on me!
I went up to the hunt kennels earlier, giving Mother a ride out. The Puppy Show is next weekend and a pre-puppy show, Wednesday evening, when we will be bringing two bitch pups back with us. I picked out the two I liked after watching them play for a while. One is very feisty and will need firm handling. No doubt in my mind she is leader of her siblings.
I will say my GSD is very good as I took her over with me to where they are in the puppy pen. She jumped in with them and was allowing them all to swing off her legs and tail. She chose the second one by bowling her over and licking her so hard the poor pup was rolling over and over.
Must be mad but 13 dogs already two more do not make a lot of difference! It is if the later litters do not have walkers, we will take on two more.
I do love Foxhound pups, they are so naughty. Nothing is sacrilege to them so it does make us tidy. They will take anything and chew it to an unrecognisable mass. One lot got hold of a ball of garden twine and it was wound around everything - it seemed like two miles of the stuff.
I have tack on the three youngsters and not a reaction from one of them. They just had an arched back for a couple of strides and then went on as if they had been wearing it all their lives.
All are standing at the mounting block and I am fiddling with them whilst a lot higher than they are. They couldn't give a toss. All seem to be enjoying having something to learn.
Need to get on, Em took several cages of birds to the auction this morning. Haven't heard from her as to how they sold.
Better crack on, need to take hay out around the fields whilst it isn't raining.
