This is just so good...I've got someone to play with & keep me company & better still it's my sister Maple...when we wos born & living with our Mum (Nattie) she was called Miss Red...I wos Mr Purple. Here's a couple of pictures of when we wos tiny:
Here we all are at 14 days old...Mum Nattie has got her leg
round Maple & I'm lying just by Mum's head!!
Here's my sister Miss Red...now Maple...at 6 weeks old!
Anyhows...Maple's Mum, Dad & sister (Caroline, David & Mimi) arrived this morning with Mapes & all her things - typical girl...she's got loads of stuff! Mind you I guess she might need it coz she's staying with me for 3 whole weeks while her Mum, Dad, sister & brother go on holiday to a place called Kenya - don't know where that is but I reckon it must be near 'Merica coz that's a long way away too!!!
After Mape's Mum & Dad left we went for a really cool walk to the New Forest - we met my mate Indy & his Mum & Dad. Here's a picture of the 3 of us looking very handsome...whoops, sorry Mapes...beautiful!!
From the left: Dad with Maple, me, Roger & Indy...
don't know what Maple & Indy are looking at - I must have
missed out there!
I'll keep you all updated with what we get up to...so keep checking out my Blog!!
I'm just so cute...butter wouldn't melt...yeah, right!
About our boys!
Radar & Rio are two very handsome, very lovable & very precious Hungarian Vizslas.
Radar was born on 26th May 2007 & was one of 8 pups. In the beginning he was known as Mr Purple - his first collar (which we've still got!) was a bit of purple wool!! His KC name is Kenazorora Kaetano...a bit of a mouth-full but pretty cool none-the-less!
Rio was born on 15th January 2010...bizarrely, he was also a Mr Purple...not that that influenced us in any way! He too was one of 8 pups & is in fact Radar's nephew...though we think of them as brothers! His KC name is Adolphustown Acorn.
Stuff we like doing
Walking - our favourite places are anywhere with water;
Eating - chicken wings & lamb ribs are the best;
Jumping - on & over anything;
Swimming - the river's good & the beach is even better;
Chewing - the bones that Mum & Dad give us...plus the occasional stick!;
Playing - games like "catch" & "find it";
Sniffing - there's some great smells out there;
Sleeping...but only when there's nothing better to do!
We almost lost Radar to this horrible parasite in March 2008 - we would hate any other dog to go through what he did (or owners for that matter!). Please be aware that it is now prevalent in the UK particularly along the South Coast. The signs & symptoms are many & varied but include:
A gradual onset of progressively worsening signs of lung and/or heart disease Chronic cough Breathing problems Exercise intolerance Loss of appetite Gagging Weight loss Swelling, bruising, fluid build –up in the stomach Prolonged clotting times Vomiting Seizures Loss of consciousness may also occur
French Heartworm CAN be treated and CAN be prevented but not by the usual worming treatments. If you suspect your dog is affected PLEASE see your vet sooner rather than later!
