Three Months Today ..

.. and Ross has had a trip to Pets At Home for his weigh in and to get a few treats. He weighed 12.6kg and I make him 43cms at the wither. His weight is  Ok I suppose but I had hoped to hit 13kg. I guess if he was eating normally he would have done!
By 3 months little Loki had overtaken Kaiah and Kyle an he was 13.8kg .. they were 12.7 kg and 12.9kg. I didn't measure Kaiah or Kyle but I've recorded Loki as 40cms at the wither on the day, I wonder now if that is correct as in photos he looks as tall as Ross is now any day!
Ross is doing Ok with his food again today, with Tia's help he ate all his breakfast and ate half his lunch unaided!!!

Breakfast Success

Ross is still being a prat with his meals. The difficulties has now spread to all of his meals and I'm quite embarrassed of his streamline figure, but what can I do?
This morning I followed my normal routine, everyone had been out and had their breakfast and were waiting patiently in their crates as we had ours. I'd let Ross out again, as I always do, puppies are sometimes too busy to go to the toilet first thing and letting him out again means I usually get better house training success. His breakfast was untouched. As Ross is allowed to run riot  at this time I usually put his breakfast back in the cupboard to stop Jamie getting to it. Jamie really doesn't need extra meals, but this morning he'd gone in the living room so I left the breakfast in the crate. Ross was running in and out of the kitchen with shoes and toys, (he has a shoe fetish) and then he stopped and didn't come back. He barked once I ignored it, but when he barked again I went to see what was going on. I was just in time to see him evicting Billy cat out of his crate, Billy had found the meal and was having a feast! I stayed back out of the way for 5
mins as Ross tucked into what was left of the meal .. the bowl was clean!
How much did Billy eat? Well it can't have been that much can it? He's quite a little old man now, and cats eat much slower than dogs .. but no matter how much it was maybe a valuable lesson will be learned. If you leave your breakfast ... you loose it!
This morning I couldn't help but think of this photo and how a young Billy also "assisted" me with Louis back in 2003 ...  Louis was always willing to share!

Success For Kaiah At Flint


It's been a lovely run of shows for Blanik Jeevana. Three shows, three BPIB's. Starting with the most wonderful achievement WKC, then Merioneth and today Flint and Deeside.  Merioneth and Flint are open shows but Kaiah was also considered worthy in the groups by getting Pastoral puppy Group 2 at both shows. I'm really proud of my shouting Sheila. Sadly no photos today in the breed classes as we had no spare pair of hands for the camera, but a couple in the groups. Thanks today to breed judge Dave Miller and Group Judge Mike Vincent.

Some Boys At 3 Months - ish

Baby Mikey sure turned into a handsome dude didn't he...
...and Loki, Just look at him
 a few are eating their words about him now I guess!
I have photos of them all at different ages, but sadly a lot taken before digital cameras and too much effort to share! 
I wonder what this little guy's updates will look like in a couple of years!

Handsome Kyle

Doesn't he look amazing 

The Heather Is In Full Bloom

 Nico and Jezi
 Ziva, Asha, Sammi and Tali
 Kaiah and Loki

Naughty Nico

"Send the bugger back" I screamed. "This kind of behaviour is totally unacceptable, I'm so pissed off with him." Ross? Hell No!
 After the show on Wednesday I decided my hoodie and fleece body warmer would be Ok for Monday's show in the equestrian centre and I hung them both on the wardrobe door. "He" went into the bedroom at 10pm last night and when Steve and I went in at 10.30pm we found "he" has pulled them both down and shredded the body warmer from the pockets out! I guess "he" could smell where the fish treats had been and went looking for a morsel. "He" is now in the dog house ... again!

He'll Grow Into It!

The new "king Size" crate is up. He looks so little in it, but there was no point buying an in-between one was there. 

 Ross and Kaiah had a great time shredding the box with Asha supervising! 

The Puppies At 12 Weeks

Sammi - Standing but not stood! 
It's interesting to look and compare isn't it, well it is for me anyway

Do you see what I see? 
Another black spot at "Blanik" 

Ross' First Show

Ross had a fantastic day at the show yesterday. He was a pleasure to have around .. well mostly, he did have his moments. lol Thanks to everyone who took the time to say "Hi" to him, he just loved everyone. With all the attention he got it took us ages to walk from one side of the field to the other.  I really hoped he would be tired last night, but after an 90 min sleep in the van on the way home he was ready for action again! 
He is such a confident pup I can't help but be pleased. He was so happy to be there, mixing, socializing and seeing the world. The "Brown puppy" joke continued ringside, but there was only one person who mistook his breed and to be fair they were not too far out thinking he was a Malinois.  
His next big day out and next show is Bank Holiday Monday
Can't wait to show him off a bit more!
