(Music: Cher's "All or nothing" -how Rambo got his name!)

 

On the 13th of January 2007 Rambo was put to sleep.

It was the hardest decision of my life.

I can't bear to write more about it yet.

FROM PUPPYHOOD UNTIL NOW:

(See him be born and up until 8 weeks HERE)

7 weeks

11 weeks old and the ears have grown quicker than the rest of the body!

With mum Ripley

12 weeks

Being taught the down (almost 14 weeks)

And very importanly, being taught to STAND!

Got to get those ears up though!

And the sit!

I've had enough!!

4 ½ months old and still not quite big enough for my ears

Rambo LOVES to play tug with tea towels

Simba wants to join in!

I'm tired now.

6 months old and starting to look less like a puppy

Maybe a future brace at shows?

So far, Rambo has had a great show career. In his 4 shows with breed classes during 2005, he

was Best Puppy in Breed each time.

(And no, he was never on his own, there was always competition!)

Also gained one Best of Breed, one Reserve Best of Breed and one Pastoral Puppy Group 4.
