Poppygold Aniseed Twist for Cuckmere X Cuckmere Magical Miracle
Honey safely delivered her puppies between 6.43 pm & 1.03am on 15th/16th April. We have 2 gorgeous girls and 6 beautiful boys. They weighed between 395g - 565g.
We repeated the mating of Honey with our own Jaffa (Sweetest litter) as we were so pleased with the puppies. Shirley hopes to keep a bitch to stay with Honey, her mum and auntie. We decided to call these puppies the ‘Wedding’ litter not only due to the Royal Wedding but because both Shirley and I have sons getting married this summer.
Scan shows she is carrying a nice sized litter

This is Molly - she will be staying with her mum, grannie and auntie
She’ll be a playmate for Shirley’s grand-daughter Imogen - although she’s not too sure about Molly at the moment...
