Cara's Story

CARA    (Jimbren Little Darlin)

Sire:   AM CH Araby American Flyer to Jimbren

Dam:  Jimbren Devil's Darlin

26th September 2011

 

It took nearly a year to find the right puppy, and many e-mails to and fro across the Irish Sea.  Cara is from Co. Laois, and is a distant relative of Juno.  Although she is from an American import sire, her dam is descended from Juno's grand-sire, CH Jimbren Royal Scot.  So begins another chapter in my dog-owning life,  the joys of house-training, chasing a puppy around the garden in the pouring rain because it hasn't learned to come back to you yet, rescuing my clean, freshly folded washing from the kitchen floor pulled off the kitchen table when my back is turned.  At least she hasn't eaten my mobile phone and glasses yet as Juno did.  And to think this all started with a £1 mongrel puppy more than 50 years ago.

 

UPDATE December 2012

Cara starts Dog Borstal in January 2013 - just don't ask!

 

UPDATE January 2013

Well the first session went well thanks to Tina at Dogwise Training School.  Cara has now been spayed, and once she's fully recovered, starts training in earnest!

 

UPDATE October 2015

Cara is now grown up, and much better behaved - and only forgets all she's learned occasionally!
