What a Summer , we have had a horrid time the house has been flooded twice. After the first time we had major referb to do, new skirting boards decorate and new carpets on the ground floor. We had worked really hard to finish had new carpets fitted then 2 weeks later it happened again! Chris and I were devastated we have lived at Catherton for 24 years and never had a problem. Jas continues to grow she is a joy as are all her litter mates We have had numerous photos sent , thank you all so much , and as soon as Chris has finished digging our moat ,to prevent further flooding they will be put on the website for you all to see . To be honest the website has been bottom of our priorities lately but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy seeing the pictures so keep them coming . Jas has been to a few shows initially not doing as well as I had hoped but she did go through an ugly duckling stage, so bum high it was ridiculous. Her front end is catching up now, so her topline is improving and so have her placings. So much so that she has qualified for Crufts 2013 so she will go with her mum who has also qualified. Crumpsbrook will be well represented there next year something I would have only dreamt of.Cassies brother Oscar will also be there with Holly and her mum Mandy.Hope to have time to write my blog a little more frequently weather permitting !
The other important news is that my training and behaviour part of Crumpsbrook is being seperated and will be called Mannerly Mutts. I am now a member of The Guild of Dog Trainers and continue to study for my degree . I adore the behaviour side of things trying to help families improve their relationship with their dogs is such rewarding work .My classes are as popular as ever I continually have a puppy wait list and currently do 6 classes a week. Poor Chris is trying to build that website as well ,but do keep an eye on it ,I hope to put some useful articles on there that I have written for my degree,concerning dog behaviour.
