9 hours ago: The puppies after Ravensbank Holly (Holly) and 2UM2019 Squareclose West (Bosse) was seven weeks old yesterday. The are a lovely bunch - sound, happy and pretty puppies. We have chosen af black dog Ravensbank Ainsley (Ainsley) as if he should remain here. If you can offer this little fellow a fine home and have something to offer him, he can be purchased. There is a spotless health certificate from Wednsday 19-02-2020 and he has done the puppy test in flying colours. He is set to leave us on 26-02-2020. We may negotiate details around time of his departure.

11-01-2020: Ravensbank Holly (Holly) this morning had six large puppies - three bitches and three dogs. All bitches are yellow. One dog is black.

05:44 black dog, 520 gr. (Ravensbank Ainsley)
06:06 yellow dog, 476 gr. (Ravensbank Gordon)
07:04 yellow bitch, 514 gr. (Ravensbank Jennifer)
07:13 yellow bitch, 462 gr. (Ravensbank Clarissa)
08:22 yellow bitch, 440 gr. (Ravensbank Delia)
09:30 yellow dog, 556 gr. (Ravensbank Jamie)

Holly is a champion in the whelping box. She is calm and well balanced diligently taking care of her pups. She is eating normally and there is absolutely no fuzz about her. The puppies all appear sound and healthy, and although they are born really quite big, they are already growing in weight.

05-12-2019: The day arrived, where Squareclose Wendy (Nessie) had her debut as part of my picking-up team on a large estate shoot. She was the third dog in my pack with Ravensbank Bob (Bob) and Ravensbank Biscuit (Bibi) in front. To put it short: It was a huge success. Nessie had a good handful of fine retrieves. She picked marked birds, hunted down lost birds and took one fine blind on a line in the field. Spontaneous retrieves of wounded birds, good soft mouth, very powerful with style yet spotless at heel between drives. Above all, Nessie masters the most demanding of all, which is to remain calm and stay cool when she is not being asked to deliver her magic. I am so proud of my apprentice retriever.
