Kula's greatest achievement was to have a lovely litter of puppies in 2006. She had a difficult pregnancy - for me anyway, as almost from the moment she got pregnant she wouldn't eat anything that had the word "petfood" on it. I can only guess that she had morning sickness throughout this pregnancy and it was a real challenge to find things for her to eat. If I found that she would eat fresh fish one day, I would buy in lots of it only to find that after about three days, she no longer wanted to eat that. So we would go on to something else - steak, sausages cooked on the barbecue, chicken, leftover food from our meals, eggs, cheese etc - only to find that in each occasion, after one or two days she would no longer eat that food. And its not as if we could go back to the same food a week or two later. It seemed that once she had eat a type of food it was then marked as "never to touch again while I am pregnant". She drove me almost to despair when, at the end of her pregnancy she stopped eating totally for three days. I couldn't get her tempted at all and we watched the puppies seeming to get larger and Kula to get smaller. When she finally had the litter they were very healthy puppies and Kula, who was absolutely skin and bone by then, started to eat immediately, initially with half a pot of honey while she was in labour and then eating everything possible from then onwards. What a relief!

Kula is my only dog to have clicked with the retrieve "thing". She caught on at an early age that if she brought back the stick or the ball to my feet, she would have the fun of another chase - an achievement that sadly Phoenix and Shadow seem to have missed out on. Kula is now going to try to do a bit of obedience. I think she has potential but we probably should have started a few years ago. However, she is pretty clever at picking things up and we can have some fun along the way.

Such a hot day, the only thing for it was to swim up the river.
