This year began very badly, with the sad loss of Kristopher aged 4 from liver disease.
We were all heartbroken, especially Daddy who had been training him to work as a gundog.
Then 2 weeks later, one of my granchildren, Della, sadly passed away from leukaemia aged 3. Mummy was so sad that she has let our Scarlett go and live with Sue and Brian as they were missing Della so much.
In March, I turned 11 years old. Mummy bought me a new sparkly lead and collar from Crufts, its bright pink leather with a big blingy brooch on it and I love it!
At the beginning of May I became a great grandmother again, my grandson Gorgeous George has just become a daddy for the first time to a litter of 5 puppies. We are going to see them soon and mummy has pick of litter if she wants one.
One of my great grandchildren, Buttons has qualified for Crufts 2013, we hope that his brother William will qualify this weekend, along with my grandchildren George and Cherry.
1st June 2012
Well, I have good news, both my great-grandson William (Yankeetank Sweet William) and my grand-daughter Cherry (Yankeetank Dirty Dancing) qualified for Crufts last weekend. William won both the Junior and Novice Class and Cherry was second in Post Graduate Bitch. Both were handled by mummy, who bred them both. Aunty Wendy and Uncle Keith who own William were really pleased. So thats both of my great-grandsons now going to Crufts next year, with their mum Cherry. Just got to get George qualified now, he just missed out by one placing.
Mummy and Daddy have seen George's puppies, they are now 3 weeks old. Mummy is going back to choose the pick of litter in a few weeks time. Don't know if I will have a great-granddaughter or grandson coming to live with us yet.
