Its been a wet week here in Devon and with the wet weather comes bad internet connection and finally with the clear skies we have today my connection is not flicking on and off.
Primrose's pups will be ten weeks old this Saturday and two will leave us this weekend being Archie and Maisy, so will have to get a final mug shot of each pup before Saturday.
The views have been quite spectacular from our home this last week with the Taw river twice bursting its banks and this morning as the sun awakened and its rays stretched out, Jack Frost had left a duvet of white frost across the valley which glistened from the suns light. Its been a bit of a struggle getting to work whilst the roads flooded, trying to remember the best route any where avoiding burst streams and rivers. We sit luckily high up but it is between two rivers the Taw and the Torridge and on Sunday morning getting home from milking which is normally a 20 minute drive turned into a 1 hour detour, as whilst milking the Torridge at Taddiport decided to burst its banks. I think with damage though North Devon has got of lightly compared to other parts of Devon.
Lets get back to the pups and have loaded up videos took the end of last week before the rain really came in. Milly takes a bit of a leap in one of the videos, showing not much fear. The poof she jumped off is not to high as care should be taken to not let them jump from to greater a height as not good for young developing joints.
I will get back on the email trail in the next couple days.
Finally I found out earlier today that our phone is not working. Last night the pups where caught chewing the cord to the phone. Did not think they had done any damage but earlier tried to use the phone finding it dead and on closer inspection of the cord could see it was damaged, so will hope to either find another cord or failing that I will get into town tomorrow on a hunting expedition for a phone cord. Normally this cord is not exposed but one of my sons had been fiddling around by the phone and left just enough poking out for the damage to be done. Pays not to be to precious about things with pups about. Lol
