These puppies all have homes.
This is Ffi's last litter. Her previous progeny are doing extremely well and many of them have been placed in and won sheep dog trials. Ffi herself has been very sucessful on the trial field considering she has to contend with a novice handler. As well as representing Scotland at the the International in the Young Handlers class, she has won and been placed in Open trials with large entries and has run in the Scottish National 3 times already, all being well she is well qualified to run this year too and every year until she retires. Ffi is also a reliable and honest work dog and tremendous outrunner. There is more information about her on her page.
Chance is a good young dog who has proven himself to have everything I desire in a dog. He has plenty of power and guts and has a nice way with sheep. He is a geniune dog with an outstanding temperament.
These puppies are genetically normal for CEA/CH and TNS. They will be rough coated and should be prick eared. They will all carry the brown and tan point genes from their father.
These pups are bold confident pups and the photos aren't great because I hardly had time to point the camera before they are at my feet!
Today the puppies had a special treat. We went to visit my parents, who happen to have 1/2 and acre of manicured lawn to run around on. Mist's pups will be going there tomorrow as they are going to the vet, so I thought I'd take Ffi's with me today.
Firstly, they were very annoyed about being put in the van! Wee Lad particularly complained the whole way there - and back!!
Chance making a sharp exit - wise in view of the amount of noise his children are going to make. I think Ffi just broke the news to him that he'd fathered 7 pups, he isn't as keen to face up to his responsibilities as Ghost is!!
You can run but you can't out run us AND take photos, ha ha!
