Just tried to get a nice photo of Reggie for this blog with me. Started off not to bad and then Reggie goes for the lick and Henry decides to photobomb and join in. I'm not sure what you would call that photo, but I have got a very clean face now. Lol
Reggie became a Granddad around four months ago.
A couple years ago someone locally asked to use Reggie on a Cocker bitch and Darci below is from that litter. Wendy contacted me after getting Darci, wanting to know about Reggie, especially as she planned to breed from Darci. Around four months ago Darci produced a litter of F2's, as she used a Cockapoo stud dog and Ziva is who she kept back and is Reggie's Granddaighter.
Ziva weights nearly 5 kg. Is very good. Takes after her dad, stubbon, so I had to rethink the crate, she now sleeps under my bed next to Darci!!!!
She is as good as gold, no wees at night. I tried leaving her in the kitchen when I was out but she managed to 'climb' over the 3.5 ft gate!!!!! but as she doesnt chew or wee or poo. I have decided to let her have the run, she has a treat toy that she shares with mum that keeps them occupied for a while, then I think they just sleep.
They go to the moors for a good run most days, her recall is great she ignores the sheep which is always good, goes after a ball as long as its not thrown too far and is totally cute as a button.
I have trained her to recall to a whistle, saves me screaming against the wind on the moor, her reward for retuning is cooked garlic liver ( cheap liver, cut up small, covered i garlic powder, baked till hard in oven, keeps for weeks,) they do anything for it. Also a clicker, I use that at the same time as I give her the liver.
Hope alls well with you all. The other pics are January, she has grown quite alot since these were taken.

Thanks Wendy for the update on Reggie's daughter and granddaughter. Lovely to hear how well they are getting on.
