Merry Christmas

Well hello again Beauclarke fans.  Wow oh wow have we got news for you!!!  As you know, the Beauclarke Bunch had their ranks swollen by the addition of little Daisy Rox a few months ago.  Well they have swollen even further by the addition of Pixie's husband to the ranks!! WELCOME to Khatibi Angus Macaotup at Edenloch aka Bailey.  To cut a very long story short, Bailey's owner decided that the time had come to find him a new home and so he was offered to mum and the rest is history! Bailey has settled in really well and is now a fully fledged member of the Beauclarke Bunch. We are waiting for Pixie to come into season (anytime now....) and then hopefully there will be some puppy eggs for us to blog about.  Mum has been quite busy honing her ultrasound scanning skills on her Pregnant Paws clients and so will be keeping a close eye on Pixie following mating with Bailey for any sign of little new lives growing in there! No doubt mum will become a better blogger if Mother Nature decided that 2013 is the year of Beauclarke Pups!!
Daisy is growing at a rate of knots and has a particular skill of 'shuffling' on command (well, when Dad asks her too any way!). She is a pretty little thing and LOVES her cuddles.

There is some sad news in that we had to say goodbye to BONGO one of our outside stray cats that we have been looking after for a few years.  Just one remains now, POGO, who we hope will be with us for a long time yet.  Bongo is at Rainbow Bridge along with all our other furry friends that we have loved and lost over the years.

Enough chatter...more pictures!

wow posting so soon!!

Well you can tell mum's on holiday, we're blogging again already!

Pixie is doing well since her ops and is going swimming with Charlie again now, so hopefully we can get that leg of hers built up nicely.  Emmy is doing well too and Daisy has settled in really well. She has quite a few toys but her favourite 'toy' by far is Charlie! And Buddy is the best climbing frame ever!

Mum is EXTREMELY proud of herself as she has been on a training course and can now use an ultrasound scanner to detect pregnancy is cats and dogs.  Our lovely grandparents, Nannie Jean and Pa have lent her some money and she has bought a scanner of her own, a very posh Landwind C-30Vet. There is a great website she has set up at www.pregnantpawsscanning.co.uk.  (And a big thank you goes to auntie Vicki for help coming up with the rather clever name of Pregnant Paws Scanning! Lilly went along (as moral support for mum) to the scanning course and when mum scanned her she found out she had some bladder stones again.  So off we went to the vet complete with the scan to get a diagnosis confirmed and so we can start treat Lilly and hopefully avoid surgery.  Its brilliant to have been able to spot something before symptoms appear and hopefully now Lilly will not need to go under the knife again, as she was really sore after her last bladder surgery so mum and dad are keen to avoid that ever again!

Daisy started her puppy parties at the vets this week but she'd had rather a busy day chasing Doug the Chihuahua around so all she wanted to do was sleep! Doug goes home today though so she should be more lively for her class next week!

So here are a few more photos and video clips to sum up the last couple of weeks...enjoy.....

 Can you spot the puppy???
 Did you guess right?  She's tucked up behind Lilly's bum and Louis' front leg!
 No idea why this is the wrong way but its all 6 Cavs. Daisy is such a little dot!

I know, I know, its been awhile!  But we have LOTS to tell you and some new friends to introduce! The furry family here at Beauclarke Mews has grown.

AS you know Pixie has already had 2 surgeries on her knee....the first to repair a traumatic dislocation, the second to repair the repair as she had torn her internal stitches. Well unfortunately the knee continued to dislocate after the second surgery and so she had to go in again for surgery number 3....a tibial crest transposition with trocheaplasty....basically they break the shin bone, realign it and pin it and cut a deeper groove for the knee cap to sit in. OUCH
Here she is with Penny on the left and Lilly on the right just after op number 3.  She came into season in between ops 2 and 3 and obviously with a dislocated knee and further surgery needed she did not go to see hubby Bailey.  Hopefully she will be recovered enough in January/February when her next season is due to go see him then.  I say hopefully because she has since undergone a 4th surgery as the pin that was put in started to work its way out and a further surgery was needed to replace the pin and put in a second one to try and stabilize the fracture further.

MUMMMMMMMMM Charlie's in MY crate!!!!!

Unfortunately she seems to be suffering from awful cramps following her 4th surgery and isn't herself at all.  She is seeing the vet on a regular basis and we are managing her pain the best we can. The pins can come out in September so she is getting plenty of TLC for now.

We said 'Hello' to a new kitty sister recently too.  There were no plans to add to the feline family but we couldn't ignore this kitty plight and stepped in.  A neighbour came over to see if we had lost one of our cats as she had seen a cat hanging around her house for a few weeks.  Well, no, we hadn't lost one of our feline friends, but mum and dad went to take a look and found a badly dehydrated, emaciated but very friendly female cat.  It was obvious that this little creature needed to see a vet and so mum and dad adopted her.
So welcome EMMY, so called in honour of her amazing Emerald green eyes that flash like opals. They really are stunning!!  Emmy has hyperthyroidism ans will need medication for the rest of her life. She is about 12 years old and gaining weight VERY slowly but surely.  She will be very much loved and cared for here at Beauclarke Mews.

We have also added a new little sister to the Beauclarke Bunch.  Meet Daisy Rox.....a tiny 7 week old black and tan female.  We'll let the pictures say its all........

The Olympic Flame

Not wishing to brag or anything but I HELD THE OLYMPIC TORCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  My best friend Nicki was chosen to run with the Torch at Droitwich on May 24th, and we had some pictures taken.  Here they are....watch out for the new hair!!!



About time we blogged!!

Its been awhile.  We have had some birthdays.....Buddy turned 9 on April 14th, Charlie was 3 on April 26th, Louis and mum had their birthday on May 6th, Louis was 3 but mum won't tell us how old she was!  And Pixie had to have knee surgery for a traumatic dislocation, Charlie had to have knee surgery for his other knee...and Pixie has to have her knee repair repaired because she's such a live wire she has burst her internal stitches!  Pixie has a season due end of June/early July but it all depends on her knee as to whether or not she goes to see her hubby this time or if we wait until 2013.

Here are some pics and clips to sum up the last few months.

Mother Nature says NO

Today we had Pixie's scan. We were so sure she was expecting as she is ever so clingy (beyond her normal cuddly self) and her coat so lustrous! But there was not a single puppy to be seen on the scan. We will rescan in a couple of weeks just in case she was a little later with her ovulation that was indicated on the Idexx test, but its not looking good. Never mind, it just means Bailey will be getting another visit from his 'wifey' in a few months!

We hope you are all having a good New Year so far!

Watch this space for more news from us soon!

The Beauclarke Bunch! xx
