In uncertain times which non of us have ever encountered before, we must think carefully about going out and mixing with others. Breeding dogs is something we do not take lightly and I have considered not breeding this year however dogs need feeding, dogs need veterinary and they still cost thousands to keep each year. So with this in mind we will still go ahead with Brooklyns litter and just take it from there.
We have decided if we do not have enough people wanting a puppy when she comes into season then we wont go ahead. But if everyone still wants one who has contacted me then we will go ahead.
But sadly we will have to put in some measures because I am the Carer for my mother. The care team cant do it now because of covid 19 so I am picking up the rest and she’s 87 and lives with us. So the measures I’m going to put in place is rather different to what Ive ever done before.
We are going to do a video calling appointment, where I can show you the house, where the pups will live, mum and dad and the relatives. If you have FaceTime I can do this, if not then download what’s app, which I will be sending photos on, and we can video call. You will get updates as the puppies grow up and feel part of the family, and I will set aside time for everyone to video call as we cant have anyone in the home unfortunately.
So anyone wanting a puppy whose contacted us before, let me know your waiting still. The moment she comes into season which is now until May we will then arrange a video call.
I will put on hold any other litters until we know how things will be going in the world.
Having a dog during this crisis is actually wonderful as they give us some reason to go out into nature, we have someone to focus on instead of misery. It can be the best thing to boost morals, especially for those families with older children. Dogs are great healers of spirits, and they can be a life saver for depression. We have sold dogs before to couples who have had terrible depression and they have contacted us years later to say how the dog actually got them out of depression, because they simply have to care for the dog. I know, I’ve been there, hence why my dogs mean such a. Lot to me. Having fibromyalgia isn’t easy on a daily basis. Pain never goes away, and the dogs are my life savers.
Now remember if you have rung me and spoken to me before you do not need to ring or call me again. But text me or email me to say your waiting for a puppy. Soon as she is in season I will then message you. I will arrange a video call. Any new people then yes you need to contact me for a chat on 07584279384 however only between these times 10.30am to 2.30pm weekdays. If you text between those times then I can arrange to call you back or you to call me. Texting is always best to catch my attention as I do not carry a phone, and I am outside with the dogs a lot. We have acres of fields and we spend a lot of time out there together. All private land where we wont come into contact with anyone.
