    Beautiful photo of both pups. Molly is looking positively regal and Keir is a blissfully happy little guy. :heart:

    I’m in the midst of all our ‘lasts’ with Mollie. Today was her last visit to the garden centre.

    She goes to Big School on Tuesday and will have her spay while she’s there.

    I will miss this lovely, crazy, excitable, clever, loopy, loving girl so much.

    Yes of course you will @Boogie and we will miss hearing about her and seeing her in photos. Who looks after her at Big School? Is Big School a home? Gosh, she is going to miss you all.

    I bet you go out of your way to make all those "lasts" extra special, though. She will be sorely missed. x

    Here is a photo of Big School, we go there for puppy class and on Monday I let her have a good sniff round everywhere. Each trainer has three dogs to train and they are lovely people. There will be about 50 other dogs training at the same time. She will go to a nearby family home for evenings and weekends - the dogs get delivered in the morning and picked up at home time, just like school :)

    How come she can't stay with you during school as well (unless it is far away)?

    Yes, I’m an hour from there - too far for the commute, school starts at 8am each day :)

    Thank you. Not selfless, I get the pleasure of a lovely puppy every year!

    And Mollie is more than ready for new challenge and harder work - in fact she’s champing at the bit. I really don’t have enough challenge for her now. I will miss her terribly, but at the same time I know that she’s ready for the next stage.

    :)

    Just catching up. Lovely you get her for a little longer. You have given her a wonderful foundation.

    I adored the birthday present video! I’m curious about your floors - we were always worried about Snowie running on our wooden floors. Not that we could stop him!

    Ours gallop around on the floor - no harm done. Gypsy once sprained her paw running under the table and catching her paw on a chair rung o_O

    Aww...happy and sad that Mollie is going to Big School next week. I hope you can enjoy all your "lasts" and will be thinking of you. :hug:

    Well, the day has come, we are taking Mollie in to Big School tomorrow morning.

    I’m going to so miss this lovely, cheeky, cuddly, clever girl :(

    Bless her, she’s really ready for school and the next chapter in her journey.

    Goodbye sweetheart, work hard and play lots xx

    :heart:
