Date of Birth
Joules & Dennis produced 10 puppies in Litter 'P' They were all amazing, huge puppies but sadly 8 died during the C section to deliver them. We were left with 1 boy and 1 girl. I had not planned on keeping one from this litter but I just could not part with the girl as she was beautiful. We ended up keeping her and I was so glad I did when a few months later we lost her mother, Joules, who died suddenly from a suspected blood clot following the C section. It was a great loss to us but we hope Purdey will continue in Joules' footsteps, although she will be a hard act to follow.
Purdey is a very confident young lady and we look forward to showing her. She has passed her Puppy Foundation course and has now passed her Bronze. She is proving quite difficult to train as she is so independent and prefers doing her own thing rather than what she is asked to do.
Purdey's training is ongoing and she is steadily improving. She enjoys having something to do and does not enjoy sitting still and watching others.
