Do Come And See My Puppies
No, I'm serious ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 31/10/2017 @ 8:00AM
Every three years or so Julie, my wife, breeds a litter of Labradors. Our first dog almost 30 years ago now was a chocolate Lab named Bow and from her, we bred our first litter ...
Here's a little video of Magic with her pups suckling not that long after they were born.
Bow was named so due to Sir Thomas Reynes (he of Clifton Reynes where we live) being buried alongside his dog Bow and there they are, still up at Clifton Reynes church.
Whether the dog happened to pass on at around the same time as Sir Thomas, or they waited for her to die, or indeed they kept her body until Sir Thomas had gone one wonders, but there we are.
"That's why our first dog
was named Bow."
Basically, we have kept the line of Bow going and still have her offspring. The current bitch (yes, we are allowed to use that term in this case) is called Magic, and she is the mother; and a fine mother she is too.
This litter are all black as the father is black, and both his parents were, so that was the dominant gene, and there are three bitches and four dogs. They are four weeks old now, so people are coming round to view them.
We're not keeping one this time, as we already have three, much to my daughter's protestations, but we will keep a bitch from the next litter whenever that may be.
So, my friends, if you are interested in a fabulously bred Labrador (and my wife is noted for breeding fab dogs), many of whom still live in and around Olney, (the dogs, not my wives) then get in touch and come round to see them in our kitchen, where they live, growl and generally buzz around looking for mischief.
The only advice I would give, as it's my wife who is the expert, is if you are only vaguely considering buying a puppy, don't bring your young children round to see them, as the chances of you leaving us without having bought one when young children are around is ... what's the word? Oh yes, negligible.
"So, do come and see my puppies."
My number is 07879 414110 if you are serious about it (as they are very popular, do get in quick) and I will give you my wife's number to chat through it fully.
Until next time ...
