As everybody was at the wedding, the puppies had to go along too!!


22nd July - Today was sunny and warm like yesterday which was good as we were having visitors this afternoon to meet us and our dogs, we had the pleasure to meet Stuart and Donna with their two young children Jessica and Daniel. The children had not seen a Bernese before, they were used to dogs having had a Spaniel and Springer Spaniel, the last who sadly died one year ago, the difference in size was no problem to Daniel and Jessica. They both played with, cuddled and layed with all our dogs in our house, all the dogs had a great time with them and loved all the cuddles.

On their next visit Daniel and Jessica are going to do some carting with Geilo and take some of the dogs for a walk. Mum and Dad also loved the dogs and they all had an enjoyable few hours visit with us.

21st July - We left home early this morning for our trip to Norfolk to the home of Anna and Julian to see their puppies from their female Nala and Geilo, they were six and a half weeks old. Mid way through our drive we  stopped at the home of Janet and Ray, they are havining one of the puppies, we had six of our Bernese in their garden. We then continued our drive to Norfolk, this is a part of the country we have never been to. When we arrived at Anna and Julian's home again all our dogs had a good time on their large front garden, they were kept away from where the puppies are. We took lots of pictures and then went inside to see the puppies. They were on the back garden with two in the kitchen, we were very pleased to see Nala and the puppies, this was hers and also Anna and Julian's first litter. All the puppies had 100% temperements, they were developing their characters well, we took lots of puppy pictures. We will add a seperate page for Nala and Geilo's puppies over the next few days once we have them all downloaded, we are sure you will like them.

After spending a great afternoon there we had to leave for our drive home, again we stopped at Janet and Ray's for half an hour. As you know Bernese people have no idea what so ever of time so we sat in the garden on a beautiful evening with the dogs and cups of tea for one hour before starting our final drive home. Before we left they told us their friend had been on our homepage and had identified the bird on our page 'Staubach Country'. The bird is a Woodcock.
