Remember these little squeakers?

Those of you who have been reading the blog for the last year or more might remember these little charmers...                                            
Fiver, 
and Farmer, the youngest ones, and...
Nettle...
 Nelson...
 and Nutmeg, our hound puppies from last year. 
 Nelson definitely had the most soulful eyes ever seen...
 and he and his sisters spent their first few days here under the watchful eye of Samuel.

 This was of course back in 2011, when the sun briefly shone...
 They were so cute!
Of course they grew very fast and were soon a bit more investigative...
And then they got so big we had a joint meet with Homer and Hopeful, who were walked at Kipscombe - and we decided the huntsman had given us magic beans instead of hound puppies... 
Fast forward a year (jeez, where has the time gone?) and we went to see them again - they are HUGE and just as cuddley, its just that now you need to be standing against a wall when they jump up...
Nelson, auditioning for Strictly with the master...
"Pick meeeeeee"...
"I'm in!"
"Tell you what - I'll practice my ear spinning..."
No-one can beat him - he's clearly top dog :-)
Fiver thinks maybe he should just stick close to those in the know and make sure his name is on the list!  He's turned into such a handsome chap, after all though it will be hard to tell him and his brothers apart out on the moor.
At least Farmer stands out - and Andy has forgiven him for being so feisty that he had to be carried home on his last scamper round Rockley because he wouldn't come back on his own...  
Here come the girls - gigantic and gorgeous - Nettle (on the left), Nutmeg (jumping up on the right) and their very smart sisters, Nectar and Napkin.
Roll on the next season, 2012-2013!
