Welcome to the Dentbros Dogs Advent Calendar!

Border Collie puppy
Busy and Quin

18th December 2021

I think it’s possible that this is the moment I started to fall in love with Quin, even though I wasn’t expecting to keep him. I do always have a favourite puppy (or two!) and one I wish I’d kept. Busy was the puppy I had to keep and it turned out that Quin was the same. They are so sweet when they are this small aren’t they?

Up until Christmas every day I will publish one (or two!) of favourite photos of dogs and puppies I have taken in the past year. I hope you like them!

Donation request

I am doing this dog advent calendar to celebrate my dogs, but also to politely request that you consider donating to Canine Concern. This is the charity that supports me going into school with my dogs and supports hundreds of other volunteers around the country, visiting lots of other places.

The charity is run very simply, by an extremely small team, with limited resources, but it does a huge amount of good. The volunteers are incredibly valued wherever they go, this year more than any other.

Thank you for your support.


Please CONTACT ME if you want to know more about me and my dogs?  And feel free to COMMENT if you want to tell me what you think.

  1. An absolutely beautiful photo! As a dog owner (of two American cocker spaniels) who bought my puppies from a breeder I so wish I had photos like this of my dogs with their mother when they were so young and little. I have thought about this scenario quite often (especially when I first received the pups at 8 weeks old and felt sad I was separating them from their mother) as it’s a moment of their lives I was not able to experience. So thanks for posting that, it’s so sweet and beautiful. 😊

    1. Thank you for your comment! It is lovely watching them when they are tiny and seeing them grow and develop. But please don’t worry about them leaving their mum – she is glad to see the back of them by the time they are 8 weeks old! Good breeders usually provide plenty of ‘pupdates’, but not everyone has the time to do this.

      1. Oh that’s such a relief to know that the mother is happy for them to move on! I didn’t know that. The little puppies are always anxious and nervous when they leave their pack so I thought it was the same in return. My breeder did thoughtfully provide some little videos of the puppies through their development stage but there was 8 of them and I couldn’t tell which one was mine! Hahaha!

        Thanks again, thoroughly enjoying the advent calendar and also the newsletter training information. The videos are particularly enjoyable and helpful. 😊 Merry Christmas to you, from Melbourne, Australia.
