A very belated Happy New Year!!

Posted by Borderpride on February 19, 2011 at 11:50 AM

Well as the title states, wishing you a very belated Happy New Year!!  I don't know where 2010 went (although I was glad to see the back of it!!) & I can't believe I've not posted in the blog for soooo long!!


In many ways 2010 was a fairly quiet year at Borderpride.  We started the new year with puppies & ended the same way after Wish had her first litter in October.  Unfortunately we didn't get to very many shows at all due to ongoing problems with my health including my back which included a stay in hospital in June.  My thanks must go to my best friend Siobhain who dropped everything to come over & stay looking after the dog's then staying on another couple of week's once I was home ~ Siobhain you're the best, an absolute star!!  Lots of thanks too to many other friends who stepped in to help throughout the year.


Many other Borderpride's however were out there flying the flag in the obedience ring's, flyball, agility, cani-x & the show ring ~ congratulations to everyone on yet another successful year, I'm so very pleased for you & of course very proud of all the Borderpride's.


Hopefully 2011 is going to be a good year too & hopefully a better one for me!!


Twist became a Daddy twice in January!!  The first litter were born on 11 January to Jess, all bitches & at 5 1/2 week's old they're looking great & their owner is over the moon with them :)  The second litter were born on 21 January to Leoti, 5 gorgeous dog's & a beautiful bitch who are also looking great at 4 week's old.  The common comment is how forward the puppies are for their ages which I'm not at all surprised about :)  There are puppies available from the litter's, have a look on the "Litters by Twist" page for further information.


It's soon going to be time for Crufts again so if you're going along then please stop by the benches & say "hello" :) 


Finally, I recently had to change my mobile number, I've tried to let everyone know but if you've not received it then please drop me a line either via email or by using the "Contact Me" form on the left.


Good luck to all the competing Borderpride's this year & I promise I won't leave it so long before the next update!!
