Puppies Have Gone :(

Buck Strong's picture

Well, the last puppy is on a plane to Canada tonight. We kept one of the boys but it's still a little bittersweet not having a ton of puppy cuteness around the house. Their new families are just thrilled; one even has his own Facebook page. They were so much fun. I'm missing them.

On the bright side, the black boy that we kept is now called Dutch. He's super and loves to chew on everything. Be prepared for more pictures but of just this one guy.

Thank goodnesss you could

Thank goodnesss you could find good homes for the babies. It is so rough sending kids out into the world. Here's hoping Dutch turns out to be all you hope for. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Yup. We ended up with six

Yup. We ended up with six show prospects. Dutch and his sister (lavender collar) were the two top picks by the evaluator. We had another person interested in showing a pup but wanted a black female. Lavender Girl was the only black girl to make the cut. The other show girls were brown. Showing browns can be difficult as most judges prefer white or black. So, only two for show and the rest other jobs. One is destined to be a therapy dog and another an obedience dog for an obedience dog trainer. She will be the star of the class. The rest are just making a lot of people really happy.

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring-it was peace.

Dutch is a very cute name.

Dutch is a very cute name. Looking forward to watching him grow up! Maybe it will help with my own puppy fever. :)

No farewell pictures? NO link? No pictures of Dutch?

Empty nest syndrome can be rough - even when it's for the four legged kids.
