The puppies in Chummy's 2nd litter of one boy and 5 girls are now all settled in their new homes. They arrived safely on the morning of Tuesday, 23 February 2016 - this was a repeat of her first litter born in June 2014 by Rufus (Overdene Cumhai, bred by my sister, Merriol Haselden).

Chummy is a very sweet-natured, pale golden girl; one of two bitches in her mother Honey's last litter born in 2012. Further information about her can be found on her page; she has a hip score of 3:3 and clear eyes under the KC/BVA scheme (tested August 2015) see results of health tests. As both her parents tested DNA clear for GR_PRA 1 and GR_PRA 2, Chummy is "clear by inheritance".

This was also Rufus's 2nd litter. He is a very laid-back, darker gold boy; happy, friendly and well adjusted. He has a current clear eye certificate under the KC/BVA scheme (tested April 2015), his hip score is 6:7, and he has been DNA tested "clear" for GR_PRA1 and GR_PRA2 (see results of health tests on Rufus's own page). As a result, Rufus and Chummy's puppies are "clear by inheritance" for GR_PRA 1 and 2.

As usual, the puppies were raised in our home with access to our garden once they were old enough. They left for their new homes with a puppy pack, which included pedigree, KC registration documents (which we always endorse "progeny not eligible for registration" and "not eligible for the issue of an export pedigree"), diet sheet, information leaflets, copies of the parents' hip and eye certificates, worming record and a sales contract, signed by both parties. The puppies were also microchipped when they were six weeks old.

We always look for permanent, loving homes for our puppies; we are very happy to offer a lifetime of support, and will keep in touch with those who have our puppies for as long as they choose to keep in touch with us. (We never send puppies to homes overseas and in conjunction with this, all Dirnanean puppies have their KC registrations endorsed "not eligible for the issue of an export pedigree".)

Thie time, we have kept a bitch puppy - Winnie (Dirnanean Sister Winifred) will shortly have her own page.
