For those of you who have visited us in the past sorry for our lack of input. We do have good news. Maple 2 1/2 and Rufus 1 1/2 have done what they do on the Discovery Channel and we are expecting a litter of Puppies in late Jan / early Feb 12.

Maple was in to see the Vet yesterday and confirmed that she is expecting. The kids are excited as you can imagine. We will be up dating the blog in the weeks to come with the preparations for the pups to welp and onwards from there.

Introducing Rufus

Well we liked maple so much we got another Murray. Rufus is a cute little boy with a white chest blaze. Maple is in heaven having a young dog around the dog and Gromit has been busy ensuring young Rufus is in his place and keeps trying to herd the Murrays.

This Pic he is 10 weeks old He is 13 weeks now. The expression is "Whot you talkin bout Willis" The is fairly polite for puppy. He likes to be outside.

The Murray River Curly Coated Retriever Association


Well the Murrays finally have an association it only took over 100 years. It is
great to see it up and running.

training update.

Maple and I have been to obedience training since we got past the basic course. We are getting there. She is a very smart dog who wants to please yet she hates dropping and breaks after a short period of time. I need to work on that with her.

New Association

The meeting on 13 June 10 established the association. it is good to see it off the ground. now the hard work starts.

Training update.

This week at training we had a new trainer who does working dogs. The dogs seemed to realize that they were not going to get away with anything. Maple was pooped when she got home.

With the house cooling off in the evening we are giving Maple a blanket on her in her crate. but both dogs are up just before 6 am.
