Tuesday 18 October
A big Happy Birthday to Herc's mum, Legacy of Parnassus, daughter of PB and Penelope. Legacy is the proud dam of 22 ridged puppies from 2 ltters. She is 8 years of age and just recovery from a mastectomy, for what turned out to be a benign growth on one of her mammary glands.
Friday 14th October
Well today was the day I have been waiting for for almost 2 years. I tookdelivery of Am Ch Hercules of Parnassus when he arrived at Brisbane airport.
After a glitch with the computer system at AQIS and Customs, Herc sat in his crate at Brisbane airport for 3.5 hours before Customs decided they would release him to me. By that time, he had been in his crate for around 9 hours after travelling from Christchurch! I put a collar on him and got him out of the crate and he gave me a kiss, gave himself a shake and headed for the nearest bush to do a huge pee!! Then he jumped into my car as if it was the natural thing to do and he has not looked back since. He is gorgeous and his temperament is amazing.
