Congratulations cuckoo, sounds like all is going very well.  Pictures would be very welcome if you have time  :)

On the subject of dogs in coats - house dogs in centrally heated houses do, so I'm told, now have inadequate covering to keep them warm enough outdoors, especially in very cold weather for any length of time.  I guess if they can run about enough they should keep warm, but not everyone lives where the dog can be off lead and racing around all the time.

When my collie had to be overnight at the vets, they said I'd better come and fetch him home, he was suffering from the heat in their kennels.

You can usually get your PC to save it with less detail; I use Windows Picture Manager, Picture => Compress => for Web pages, then Save As so you don't lose the original high definition picture.

Well done - and thanks  :thumbsup: - on uploading the pics.  They look lovely from what we can see... we would, of course, like to see more in due course...  ;D
