Linus Miniature F1b (update at 3 months old)
'He's getting on brilliantly. To be honest I can't believe how easy he is. He's just taken to every challenge we've put him to. He's crate trained, toilet trained, he's doing well on the lead in the garden, we start puppy classes next week once his final jab has taken affect. He's affectionate and plays really well, though we're having to be careful with play biting so lots of time out when he gets over excited.
I can't begin to tell you how much we love him, he really is our perfect dog!'
Noodle Miniature F1
'The 1st visit to the vets went really well, she was quite happy being there and I think it's safe to say she is just about fearless. She's doing brilliantly and seems happy and content.'
Einstein Miniature F1
'Einstein is doing fantastically. He has made friends with our big rabbits and rarely gets over excited at them. He sleeps really well and we checked in at the vets for his appointment next week.
I can't believe how many toys he has been given --- sooo spoilt! but it is wonderful watching him see and hear things for a first time. We have parakeets that are out in the wild down here - very noisy birds and he thought that was amazing, fat pigeons that simply look at him and when we watched him on uneven surfaces he fumbles once and then has it worked out.
He sleeps in a pen with the door wide open and all snuggled in a vet bed.
Clearly a water baby, the kitchen floor has never been washed so often so we gave him some plant trays with a little water to play in on the patio and he can get both paws, both ears, head and chest into a very small dish - glad it is warm so he dries off quickly.
In the evening we try to keep him awake until 10:00 so that he sleeps through but it is really tough some nights.
We have bought a harness for him to start to get used to indoors and he will be going to see the sea on Saturday to get used to all the sights and sounds there as well.
We are so grateful for this beautiful bundle of cuddle. As my mother in law said on Monday, he spreads an infectious smile to everyone.'
