 Lucy with Annette at Paignton Aug 2011


 Lucy was the first of the girls to be born,so was called Beauty. She proved to be a leader of the pack and introduced her brothers and sisters to the art of splashing water everywhere!

1 day old                                                                  emptying a bowl in 10 seconds!!


We were delighted when Annette Colwell asked if she could come and see the litter and then said she would like to take Beauty home. So Beauty left us on 26th May and soon afterwards became Lucy.

In August we met Lucy at the Midshires Championship show when three of the pups watched while others went round the ring.
