When I last wrote, I was expecting the arrival of Flick (KADNOOK WESTBURYS HOT DESIGN CCD CN NRA) to ‘Zac’ (KADNOOK ZACHARIAH’s) litter. I am pleased to announce that Flick gave birth to two dogs and six bitches on the 11th November. Being a first time mum at just over 5 years of age she took to maternal duties like a duck to water. While Flick was here at Westbury, Scarlett (KADNOOK SPIRIT OF THEDREAM) had a holiday with Brian and Joan as they needed to maintain their ‘dog fix’!

At exactly six weeks to the day, Flick decided that she was no longer going to continue to feed her babies and that was it; babies were weaned instantly! Flick is now back with Brian and Joan and Scarlett has returned home to Westbury.

All bar one puppy that I am keeping have gone to their new homes. By all reports, they have settled in quickly and bringing much joy to their new families. I can believe this as Middy, KADNOOK MUSIC TO MIDNIGHT (VCA pending) has such a wonderful, calm and attentive nature.

On the Retrieving front, not much has happened. I have accepted a few judging appointments in the state during the year and hopefully will be attending some trials with the dogs as my next litter is not planned until around Easter.

Terry and Steve Rose with Blaze has obtained two new titles and will now be known as KADNOOK BLAZE OF GLORY ADO ADM JDM JDO GD SPD  This goes to prove that Kadnook dogs have got it all - beauty brains and athleticism!.


Until next time,
