A Statement from The Webmaster

Contrary to earlier reports, direct from the whelping box, of seven girls and two boys, it seems that we now have six girls and three boys!!!!!!!! Some of you may be thinking that this overnight transformation a miracle akin to turning water into wine, it is not!!!

Various lame excuses have been proffered for this "oversight!?" by the two midwives involved; "we were tired, it was the light, had the wrong glasses on" etc etc etc. Ladies, it seems to me that there is one very simple explanation. Not only have your marbles been banging against the perimeter fence they are now trundling off down the road, YOU’VE LOST THEM!!!!!
