Well, here's the last puppy dispatch from Tricia Macpherson with the Clan Cusidh puppies all together. Thank you so much for all the great photos and your help.

Week 16 - The pups are now out and about enjoying all the amenities that Fife has to offer. Having a lead on doesn't seem to be a problem at all for these puppies and they're off straight away - quite unlike their mother!

Many thanks to Tricia Macpherson and family who have survived their Cusidh pup photography mission in more or less one piece. Here are Tricia's latest photographic dispatches.

Week 13 - Well it's been no fun for the toys as you can see.

But Claire's hat has fortunately been finished off once and for all!

Well I have recently been embedded with the Clan Cusidh puppies on their ongoing Craigend missions. Here's their progress so far.

Week 8 - An attempt was made to capture the whole family together. This required reinforcements in the name of Peter Grant (next to Claire) and Stephen Patrick. Stephen with his wife Lesley (nee McQueen) owned the lovely Fearnwood Scottish Deerhounds. It was their dog Fearnwood Sound of Ryan who was mated to the foundation Cusidh bitch Ardkinglas Pattie bred by Miss Noble. Stephen is holding the father Cusidh Homecoming (Ronan)  and mother Cusidh Perchance to Dream (Rashie) whilst Peter and Claire face an uphill struggle to keep hold of their four puppies. Needless to say the capture plan ended in failure!

We thought this was such a lovely photo that it merited a front page slot. The photo is of Ronan (Cusidh Homecoming) who is currently enjoying fatherhood without any of the hard work! Thank you Tricia Macpherson for this great shot.
