Rosie and Basil are looking good. I especially like Rosie, she looks really much like our Molly, even the white socks - and since Molly is 1½, it is fun to see how good she will look at the age of 11 ;)

They are so beautiful. Love that ruby face!!

My ruby girl has a lot of Turretbank in her pedigree. Her paternal grandmother (who's the one with the strong Turretbank background) is a BT who's still doing well at 11.

They are both beautiful.

oh i hope my ruby looks like that when she gets older. The blenheim is lovely too.
But the ruby is just stunning. and so healthy looking.

They both look fabulous for their ages Bev - I especially love Rosie. I too have a Turretbank Ruby, we will have to compare notes and see if they are related!!

1st April 2008, 06:49 PM
I'll hunt her pedigree out Nicki and we can compare. Will be interesting so see if/how they are related.

That's why I asked too. We have a turrettbank grandsired bitch too! They are so alike.

Basil has the Monty look, Bev. Is it the effect of the lighting or is his white head hair growing faster then his red ? That's the case with my big boy, but he's only just showing his age and he is 12 +. A few white hairs, heart meds because he's borderline, and slightly milky eyes, but he can still see what he wants and is, in fact getting bouncier.

1st April 2008, 10:30 PM
Barbara, his white hair grows a lot faster than the red - he can sport a great tuftie when the mood takes him. :D

His eyes are clear as is his heart, but hoo boy - the poor lad is a tad hard of hearing, as is Rosie's

Oh I forgot that bit, but Monty is only deaf when asleep. Before Christmas, he gave David a real fright, as he didn't get up when the others did and didn't respond when David called him. He began to say'Ohh Monty,'' when up he jumped and bounded off.

That happens here regularly too Barbara, sometimes I go and gently shake them with my heart in my mouth - the oldies really do seem to go into such a deep sleep, I stand and watch for them breathing! :eek:

I asked the vet about this, last time he saw Monty, thinking that older dogs perhaps sleep more deeply, but he said that it's because they are slightly deaf, so arn't disturbed, thus enjoying a good sleep. This could be why Monty is more lively when awake. He sometimes bounces round like a rocking horse.

This is him

Barbara, Monty is really looking great! You would never say he was a day over 7 looking at this picture!!

3rd April 2008, 10:25 AM
Monty is looking great Barbara.:) I must take some pics of Basils litter brother and sister Lily and Barney. They are 11 in a few days time.

3rd April 2008, 10:52 AM
They are lovely Bev - really beautiful i especially love your ruby girls white socks, I soo want a Ruby but will wait a few years as 2 is plenty enough for me right now:D

3rd April 2008, 05:49 PM
Her socks aren't white Nicki, they are just a bit lighter than the rest of her (must be her old age) ;)
