Arrival of Hetty
28 June 2010 - first 7 weeks
We liked Ellie's earlier puppies Winston & Spencer so much that we
repeated the mating with Wandris Entertainer in April this year. On 28
June a single blenheim bitch puppy was born by Caesarian. It looks like
she will be staying with us - her pedigree name is Luphenex Let Me
Entetain You (we ran out of letters allowed!) and her pet name is Hetty,
short for Henrietta in memory of our beloved Henry.

8 days and the eyes are already opening
2 weeks old and she is up on her feet - this is very early, but we
suspect she is ahead of her age because she was late being born
