We are going to be parents again !

The first photo is the litter of Silky Terriers, two boys and two girls. Our little girl is the one with the green collar. They are two weeks old at the moment,






This is what she will look like when she comes home at 8 weeks -







And this is what she will be like at around 12 weeks old -

Mrs Nick these are adorable little dogs! My Mum loved them, so I was around 7 when the first one came home to live with us and we have had them ever since. Jenny loves them and so do our boys and grandchildren. They can be a little yappy like all small dogs (they don't know that they are small ) but if you're firm with them in the start the yapping won't be a problem.

They don't shed hair! and are hypoallergenic and NEVER have a doggy odour!

Silky Terriers and their smaller cousins Yorkshire Terriers have become really popular in the last decade. When I was at school and the kids talked about their dogs, no one knew what a Silky was. They are also long lived and can go to 15.

Sorry, if I'm talking Mr Nick into one, but just think of all the steam engines he buys  

(Congratulations on your wonderful new addition to your family as well - Jenny)

Thanks Geoff.

This will be number 3  

Bit of a size difference between the two Silkies and Blue.

Now your Millie, she must come in as a heavy weight on the Vet's weigh in scale!
