Dear Patsy and Stephen
Just wanted to say how special our visit was last Tuesday 17th July after the sad loss of our 11 year old Gunalt Rhett Butler. Meeting and chatting to you as well as having kisses and cuddles with the girlies lightened our hearts considerably.
Rhett was our first Weimaraner and from day one we were well and truly smitten. He was a village celebrity and simply adored by so many, it would be fair to say that my life revolved around him and as much love and attention he received he gave back by the bucket load.
He was a tall, majestic looking dog and drew attention wherever he was. Rhett was at his happiest when he was with us and from the age of 6 accompanied us to the S. France for up to 3 months a year. We would drive down and then Tony would fly home to run the business and I would spend a few weeks there with my very best friend, Rhett. We would walk in the hills and along the coastal paths together and believe me he knew exactly where every beach cafe put the doggie water bowl - year in, year out he was welcomed back and I always ended up buying so many coffees that I didn't really want !!!
As sad as we are that this era has concluded, I can say absolute sincerity that Rhett Butler will stay in our hearts and memories forever and we thank you for allowing us the privilege of becoming associated with such a 'star'.
Yours - Joanne, Tony and Elizabet Blakeway x
We would like you to meet Maharani Salmaroko (we call her Rani) who is our beloved girl now 8 years old. Her Grandfather was SH CH GUNALTH CARTER WITH KEAEK and her Great Grandfather was SH CH GUNALT BALMAIN.
She never had puppies, we welcomed her at 3 months old as a companion and friend, not for shows, but we are very proud that she is part of the gorgeous Gunalt family.
We would love to share pictures of her, maybe add one to your website if you would like to.
Thank you very much.

Some pictures of Leila.
She has settled in well, she thinks she is the boss and Suri just let's her get away with it.
Suri thinks she has to mother her she is always cleaning her and she will not eat until Leila has eaten first.
Just thought you might like a quick update on Wanda!
She has been an absolute star so far. She is going to the toilet outside on command and has only had one little accident (a wee) inside which was my fault as I didn't get her out quick enough after she woke up. She is very playful and getting on really well with my sister's pointer.
My nieces absolutely adore her and she isn't at all frightened of them, in fact she joins in with their
assault courses going through tunnels etc!
She is starting to settle in the crate but I am feeling a bit sleep deprived after the last few nights.
I WILL NOT give in though!
Hope all well and I will keep you posted on her developments. I have attached a photo for you.
Hi Stephen & Patsy
Thought I would drop you a line to know that I really like my new home and family, I had lots of presents waiting when they bought me back and they let me fall to sleep on their lap, so all is cosy here.
I am going to the vets on Friday for my second injections and to be micro chipped after which I can hit the BIG TIME !! I can't wait to go to puppy socialisation classes, that will be a riot !! but Mum says I may need to concentrate !!
Also I am looking forward to meeting all the doggies and their owners in the village and I hope they will like me as much as my very talked about predecessor, Gunalt Rhett Butler.
Think I will need to flash my beautiful blue eyes !
Lots of Love BB xx
Hi, its Sonny Esbach here!
I think I'm going to like it in Marple!
Thanks for looking after me so far, I'm trying to be really good and I love my new sister and brother!
Just thought I would let you know how Oscar is getting on up here in Bonnie Scotland!
Training at home is going exceptionally well! Oscar has got "sit" "down" and "paw" almost perfect within no time at all, I was so impressed with him. "Stay" is a what we will call a work in progress but he is only in his 2nd week with us! He starts puppy training classes on the 9th of Feb as well so I'm excited to see what we can learn there!
His relationship with the cat of the house is somewhat tense! He LOVES the car and is desperate to play but Alfie is not so keen about this "thing" that has invaded his home and has put him in his place more than once!
We cannot tell yo how thrilled we are with him and can't thank you enough for letting us have one of your puppies! Ian is even talking about the "next puppy" Hahaha....
Anyway I have attached a couple of pictures of our perfect pooch as requested and I will keep you updated on how well he is doing!
