    After our sad loss of our darling Busby I am pleased to say we have another little addition to our family. Brodie is a Flatcoated Retriever and is absolutely adoreable, typical of the breed with his ever wagging tail and lots of kisses. Here are some photos, one of which is the whole litter, 6 boys and 5 girls. A friend of mine commented that the one of him sitting in the garden made him look like a garden ornament :D He and Toby have got along great since the moment we brought him home, I think Toby is missing Busby as much as we are but he gets a bit worried when Brodie gets a bit too excited but he will learn to cope with that I am sure and probably put Brodie in his place :-D

    So glad you've found another dog to fill your heart. Toby is a good guy to accept a pup so willingly. That is one adorable puppy!

    Our largest flatcoat stood about 26" at the shoulder stratsmom so they are quite big but really beautiful in their prime and a very happy dog. You may have already seen this photo of our Busby in his prime.

    Hi Pat,
    delighted to see you are jumping in the deep end once again, :) ,..what a little beauty is Brodie,..poor Toby will be tormented for a spell until Brodie settles down,..i reckon you will be seeing Busby in little Brodies eyes,..and that will be a good thing.

    Nearly two years have passed and I thought I would post the latest photo of Brodie. He has grown into a lovely dog, but the naughtiest one we have had. Having said that, the breed are known for their naughtiness :D This photo was taken on one of his runs where there is large lake, which as you can see he has been swimming in.

    Gosh Pat it doesn't seem as though two years have passed already!! Brodie is a really handsome lad and is obviously enjoying life to the full. :-D
