Hi Pam, Thank you. Although a lot a thought is put into which dog is mated with which bitch, a lot of luck is also comes into play. And we feel very lucky that these two knitted so well together especially as we own both the dog and the bitch. Their daughter, Orrin, was made up to champion last year and I still forget to put Ch. in front of her name when I enter her for shows. Fingers crossed (and everything else) that we can repeat it with Orrin's puppies. I hope Orrin's puppies can do as well as their mother and auntie. Their first show is next month and I am getting quite nervous about it. Sally

Thanks Bettina, Blunt and to the point as always. Can I pick your brains?
Both puppies had lovely tight, well knuckled feet and plenty of bone. Suileag (bitch puppy) has in the last couple of weeks gone a little down on her pasterns and her front feet have gone slack (she is teething at the moment). Is this normal during teething and is there anything I can do or give her to help her come back up on her pasterns and to tighten her feet back up? Both the puppies have a 100% sterilised bonemeal calcium supplement addded to their feed and have had so since they were weaned. I have never had this happen before (ears can go a bit haywire during teething) and I would like to think she will get back her lovely feet.

Ps. How are your puppies doing? Sally

They do go through these horrible gangly stages, I think this is better than a puppy looking like a mature adult at a young age

I would keep them of concrete

I would not let them run up and down steps etc etc, and not play for hours jumping and beating each other up

I would however encourage them to walk on gravel to help tighten feet, time is the key and a deerhound does need some spring in the pastern, just take a look at any attenbourough doc, and see the spring in the pastern of a lion, tiger etc etc , there has to be some give its very important to structure


And I would give them time

Thanks Bettina, Do you mean on or off concrete. They are on a concrete run. They don't run up or down steps but they do play pretty rough together. Should I split them up? Sally

Hi Sally
Thanks for your advice re ringcraft classes.

However what I was going to ask was, have you shown the puppies yet? Or is it just about to happen - if so all the best. If they have already been shown how did they do? How old are they?

Hi Vicky, The pups were 6mths old on the 2nd of July. Finnan (dog) has his first outing at Evesham Open show next Sunday and then he is going to East of England Champ show on 15 July. I am just about to do his ears for the first time (it could take a while). Suileag (bitch) won't be out for a while yet. She has been entered for some shows but she is not quite ready yet so she is going to stay at home for a while longer. She has come back up on her pasterns but her feet still need to tighten a bit more. Sally
