LATEST ARRIVALS AT CANIGOU!
SH CH CANIGOU CAMBRAI (BEST IN SHOW CRUFTS 1996) AND
SH CH CANIGOU LOVE ON THE ROCKS (9 CCs, BIS Cocker Club 2011)
HAVE PRODUCED 4 BLACK PUPPIES (2 DOGS AND 2 BITCHES)
BORN ON THE 3RD AUGUST AS THE RESULT OF AN AI MATING.
Nine hours after the birth of the third puppy, and after this photo was taken,
a fourth unexpected puppy came along! Here they all are, below

It’s difficult to photograph black puppies as they don’t show up against their black dam, so here they are, aged about 3 weeks on white Vetbed. From left to right (probably) Alba, Abby, AJ and Alfie.
Smallest puppy Alba drinks voraciously from her bottle
While the largest puppy AJ (Albert Junior) needs no help. He was a long time in labour and gave his mother some trouble. He was actually born in the back of the car outside the vets while we waited for him to arrive. In the event the car journey did the trick and AJ arrived before the vet did.
After three weeks it’s getting crowded in there
But fortunately the pups are on to solid food…
…Although there’s always one that has to be different. This is Alba, discovering a taste for Tricia’s breakfast porridge.
With the pups a month old, lead training has begun. Some are keener than others.
But the main business for young puppies is to eat and grow and, most of all, SLEEP!

Warning to those of a sensitive nature: You may find some of the following pictures unbearably cute!
Here’s Rosa before the event, wishing it was all over
Early days; tiny puppies getting a little extra help.
After a few more days they’ve got the hang of it. Rosa seems to be getting bored with it already though.
Wow! What’s that? Black dog puppy Jacob opens his eyes for the first time.
Golden bitch Ruby’s always hungry and loves her bottle…..
…..and her dried food! Pups about 5 weeks old here.
It’s a close-run thing in the cuteness stakes. Here’s bitch puppy Pippa with her attractive pale tan markings,
And her sister Saffron, a brightly-marked B&T, who obviously needs to chill out a bit more.
These puppies have proved remarkably calm and steady. Here’s Poppy having her first bath…..
….and Jacob, who doesn’t seem bothered by the hairdryer.
At nine weeks, the pups are now going to their new homes, where they aren’t being spoiled at all – honest!
Here’s Pippa, at home in Newcastle on Tyne with Rosie and Robin Hoddnett
On her first trip to the vets, with Rosie
This is Ruby, living now with Lisa Walton and Dave Watson at Tarvin, Cheshire
Saffron (now known as Hershey) with her new mum Emma Ryland at Penrhyn Bay, North Wales…
…and her new friend Dolce
Here’s Poppy, doing some gardening for her new mum Liz Pattison in Kent, playing with Oliver and having a rest afterwards.
This is Jacob, now living with Russell and Pauline Morse in Ripponden, pictured left with their grand-daughter
Poppy and below with grandson Harrison.
Spot the dog! Jacob’s in there somewhere, right, among the toys. Or in the garden.
