I haven't been blogging very much lately to my shame.
But I do have a sort of a reason. We have not one, but three new arrivals to our home.
For a few years we have been showing our three, beautiful red smooth Griffons, and with our friend who also has two red smooths they've been the only Griffons in the local Open shows. One ring steward came up to me the other day and sais "Where all all the red roughs? I was looking forward to seeing some today".
This made me think that perhaps we should buy in a red rough. At a club show a friend said that he had a two-week old litter from a mating between a rough and a smooth that had produced three boys, Tom, Dick and Harry! I said that if one of them turned out to be a rough we'd be very interested.
Sure enough a few weeks later he emailed the news that one of the pups was going to be a rough and so "Hairy Harry" was created.
We then had to wait until Harry was old enough to come to stay with us, during this time the breeder asked if we would have two of his older brood bitches as well as Harry. I just love our oldies and of course we said yes. So last week we had three new residents to welcome.
