Amba - Subessen Bit of a Cheek

Amba made her appearance into the world 2 hours after her sisters and brother, last born of Jess's second litter but from then on we knew we had her!!!! Bit of a Cheek certainly suits her. She was named Amba in memory of Bertie whose affix was Jambalaya. She very quickly settled into our family and became Blaze’s constant shadow.
There are pictures of Amba as a very young puppy on the "Bit of ......... gallery", but here are a few more of her as she grew up.

      my present

Amba made her first appearance at ringcaft when she was thirteen weeks old and after a couple of weeks was quite happy herding her half-brothers around the hall.

Amba practiced the "aren't I lovely" pose, so by 4 months old, she had perfected it!
 
    

 

                      
 She also liked to play with her mum Jess.

    

and at that time usually won !!!
 

 
Her first Christmas was really exciting for her.

 In January 2010 Amba went to the park, and played, and played in the snow until she was made to watch the others.
