Puppy Pictures from December 2017 UK Litter

Puppy news

We are delighted to report that in the early hours of 23rd December, Janie and Steve Poole’s Fiore whelped 6 healthy pups. Sired by Enzo the litter comprises 4 Females (3 merle, 1 black) and 2 males (1 merle, 1 black) and all are thriving and feeding well. Fiore is an excellent, natural mum and has settled into the current daily routine of feeding, playing, cleaning and sleeping whilst her fur babies have opened their eyes and are learning about the big world they have come into. Fiore is extremely proud of her pups and even before they were born, she would roll over onto her back to show you the ‘babies in her tummy’.

This is a long-planned for litter between 3 year old Fiore (Alp Angels Bella Fiore Dell Albera of Bellezzalana) , who was bred by and imported into the UK from Jeanine Dell Orfano in the US and 5 year old Enzo (Calshair Rannock) who was bred by Chris and Alasdair Walker and who is owned by their son Rikki Stout and his partner Kylie Paynter.

BOFF Open Day 2016

A fun time was had by all at the 2016 BOFF Open Day. The dogs and their people enjoyed a walk in Cannock Chase before having a picnic lunch. Reyna hosted the AGM where Chris gave an update on the club including news about the breeding program (look out for the minutes soon). We rounded off the day with a fun dog show, with Toby winning best in show!

Last month, Channel 4 came to Little Revel End agility club to record a feature for an upcoming show. Our very own Toby Marsden was filmed being put through his paces on the agility course and was also in a piece to camera with the presenter Mark Evans. It was a very exciting day for him, showing off for the camera and playing with the other dogs. He was very well behaved even with the distraction of Ariel the pretty Spinone bitch.
The show is called ‘Dogs: Their Secret Lives and will air on Monday 15th December at 8pm. Toby may not be featured very much but do look out for him if you get a chance to watch.
