This is green

Below: 6th of September
 With mum Rona and half sister Ritzy

 Then we had a big adventure. We all had to go in the van and travel to the VET.

 When we arrived we were transferred to one cage and put onto a trolley.
In the waiting room waiting our turn.
The vet said we were all perfectly healthy and gave us a certificate saying so, with all our names and microchip numbers on. He also said we can start to go to new homes now.

On the 7th we all had a quick bath. This is Pink having hers.
Get me dry now please!

8th of September 2017 -the first puppy leaves.
Bye bye to Green, aka GOLDMALI ONE VISION.
This is how happy TARN was in his new home already the same day.
He has gone to live with two Border Collies and will turn his paws to a bit of everything.
 Same day. Maybe we should hide so we don't get sent away?

Food is on the go!!
 Then the bearded man came to visit. (John's son Richard.) He's useful to socialise pups with bearded people.

9th of September:
Bye bye to Purple; GOLDMALI ONLY YOU.
BARLEY has gone to live with her half sister Zelda (same dad) and will join her in scentwork trials. Here she is with her other new friend, GSD Foxy.

Then it was bye bye to Blue, aka GOLDMALI ON A MISSION.
MOOSE will indeed be on a mission as he is going to become a search and rescue dog. 
He has a Collie and a working Cocker as new friends.

Also on the 9th we said goodbye to Orange, aka GOLDMALI OBSESSION.
TYE has gone to live with his relative Jago and is destined for agility.
10th of September 2017; 8 weeks old 

Bye bye to Pink, aka GOLDMALI OBVIOUSLY. MALI had a long journey to Scotland where she will be living with a dog walker and have lots of friends.

Then we said goodbye to Black; GOLDMALI OPPORTUNITY NOX.
WALTER joins his half sister Rosa (same mother) who has a very varied and interesting life as her mum is a dog walker and trainer. Walter will also share his home with Staffies Brian and Suzy.

And then there were only Brown and Red left! 

13th of September:
 Last to leave was Brown; GOLDMALI ON FIRE.
SCOUT has gone to live with a lot of his relatives including his grandfather Luta, aunt Taima, uncle Aspen and more. He will have a very active life.
Red says "I'm hiding, I want to stay!"

14th of September:
And then there were one.
Red aka GOLDMALI OVER THE RAINBOW is staying here.
Her pedigree name is in honour of her great grandmother Ripley, as each time I see a rainbow I see it as a sign that Ripley is saying hello from the rainbow bridge.
Her pet name BAMBI is because that was what I really wanted to call Ripley -my first Malinois- but as I had a Dandy at the time it didn't fit in.

 So this is the end of this blog, but for the 8 puppies from Rona and Mats-

Then we have a lot of photos from the 2nd of September 2017; 6 weeks 6 days old:
 Red (with a leaf)
 In Sweden we don't say "Simon Says", we say "Follow John". Well the pups are 50 % Belgian 25 % British and 25 % Dutch, but I'm 100 % Swedish so maybe that explains why they Follow John...

 Let's get this tent down
 We found a bone
 Typical, no water again. Blue turned it over as usual. Poor Orange.
 Brown in the shade and below when the sun came out again
