Sleepy Puppy...

By Costy  
Earlier in my PF there is a one day old puppy. Unfortunately, I was without a PC for months and didnt get my camera out much, so I didnt get to keep you updated with our litter of guide dog puppies and their progress. This is one of them just before eye opening stage.

Also, if any of you have seen the advert for sponsoring a guide dog puppy... where the owner walks the dog onto the red bus in London? That was one from our litter Smile She has a little mark between her eyes, like a tuft of hair... we called her Ridge in private.

They are all now part way through their initial house training year, and doing well. Hope you like thie picture.

Super cute puppy, all the better for knowing that when he's older he'll have a useful life making someone's world that much easier.

Little does she know what an important job lies ahead for him/her - this is such a very cute image (they all look the same at this sort of stage - I mean we have had loads of Westie pups and they look like this - but to imagine them as guide dogs when they grow up (which they never do) is as scary as it is ridiculous.

Excellent image
