We had an exciting Christmas and New Year as we had new Labrador puppies arrive on Christmas Eve. We were thrilled to see them ...

So I've included a couple of photos of them. The leader image above is mum Myrtle (for that is her name) happily letting the pups suckle, and the second photo below is her when she needs a rest. She makes it quite clear to the pups they should leave her alone for a while.

"So there are seven black Labrador puppies in total
Five bitches and two dogs!"

We are keeping one bitch as we always keep our line running and have done since 1987. However, the other pups are all available for sale. They do go quite quickly as my wife Julie has a great reputation with breeding dogs and as we tend only to breed every two or so years there's always interest. They're £800 each.

Anyway, there you have it. It kept us at home over Christmas and New Year as we take it in turns to keep a close eye on them for the first week or so. On my shift, I watched old DVD's of Rumpole of the Bailey and thoroughly enjoyed both the shows and the antics of the little pups.

Happy New Year and see you next week.

Until next time ...

About David Pibworth ...


David is the owner and Artistic Director of The Arches Theatre in Clifton Reynes near Milton Keynes. Productions are underneath some flood arches on the disused Midland railway line (Bedford to Northampton). It is equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. You bring your food, drink and chairs and enjoy the varied shows that are produced. This year - 2022 - there are 12 productions on throughout the season, from Shakespeare to Ripping Yarns plus a music weekend.

David has been involved in 'Light Ent' for many years, working with Ray Galton and Alan Simpson adapting the scripts of 'Steptoe and Son' and those of Tony Hancock to the stage. He has produced shows for Norman Wisdom (which makes him feel old), Al Murray, and Joe Pasquale amongst others, and also worked in the music business promoting and producing shows with Chas and Dave, Neil Inness, Kenny Ball, Acker Bilk and others of that ilk.

He is also the director of a film school for young people in his home town of Olney as well as supporting many local events.

He recently negotiated permission from Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to stage a short run of 'Porridge' on stage which proved a success.

This year the annual charity performance at The Arches Theatre will be the last of 'Ripping Yarns' by Michael Palin and Terry Jones, with the profits being donated to The National Brain Appeal' for research into dementia as David's father and uncle died of it, as did Michael Palin's friend and writing partner Terry Jones. Last year they raised an astonishing £10,000 and are hoping to get somewhere close again with the support of audiences and sponsors.

David also has a stage hire company and his wife Julie runs a livery yard, so they are surrounded by horses, dogs, light entertainment and and a 17 year old daughter.

He plays in a comedy jazz band and collects strange props such as the Spitting Image puppets of Denis Thatcher and Alan Bennett, the child catchers bike from the stage show of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and various other 'things' all of which he sells to raise money for the Arches Theatre, although he always finds it hard to part from these props. However as the theatre receives no funding at all, he is always devising ways to keep it going! Sponsors are always welcome!
