Today, I breathe a huge sigh of relief as our lovely Labrador puppies celebrate one whole week of life.
Their mum is a sleek-coated black labrador with a lovely nature and very easy dog to have in my world. I love walking her in the fields.
Their dad is a chunky chocolate labrador with a lovely affectionate nature. He pretends to be sleepy but you watch him if you throw a ball. He is the sort of dog that turns heads.
I have just one female puppy, a chocolate bitch. The rest are male, two rare pale yellows, three chocolates and a black.
The children adore them of course so I think we have a huge guarantee that these puppies will grow up to be very family-friendly.
It is lovely to have these tiny lives in my world at the moment. They eat, they sleep, they wriggle - they know just how to live life.
