Howard Kirby, for whom I work at Mullenscote Dog Training Centre, and I are both buying puppies from the same Ettinsmoor litter in Kings Lynn, pictured above. He’s having a little boy whereas I’ve opted for a little girl.
I promise you that we chose the names independently for our pups: Howard chose Billy, I went for Tilly!
So, Billy & Tilly will be arriving in their new homes on 17 April, but they will be seeing a lot of each other, as we both will be using our pups to demonstrate training techniques at Mullenscote and to star in our shows providing the “Arrrrrr!” factor.
Howard and I have already started to compete as to which pup will be better! Not that we’re competitive of course, but Howard has even promised to leave my pup in the live pheasant and rabbit pens so that she has no chance of ever being steady!
Tilly vs Billy – bring it on!
