The Wee Beasties

Wednesday, November 05, 2014

Well, it's been a long time since I posted puppy pictures, and now they start heading off to their new homes in the next week or so. They're 11 weeks old today - time has flown! Now they're little terrors - but awfully cute ones!

This is Charlie (he was known as Boy #1). He has a wonderful home waiting for him.

This is Zipper, who was Boy #3. He has some people interested in him, but a final decision hasn't been made.

This is Opie (formerly Boy #4) who is staying with me, to be a show dog and a performance dog.

These are great little puppies . . . very brave and outgoing. I've worked hard to ensure that they're well socialized and I'm really happy with the results. I can't wait to start training Opie and seeing what kind of things he likes to do.

Thanks for letting me share my wee beasties!

    They are just gorgeous! I'm sure their new owners will be thrilled. I'm not sure which end of the country you are on - but I will be showing an English Cocker this year. Maybe we'll run into each other somewhere down the road!

    I'm thrilled you are keeping Opie. He has always been my favorite. Just love all of their freckles.

Family Photos

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Just over a week ago I traveled to my mom and dad's place to do family photos. Using a tripod and a remote shutter release I was able to both take AND be in the photos. Here are some of the best ones.

This is everybody

I'm sure that people walking through the park thought we were insane when they saw this one!

Time Flies

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

Well, the puppies are almost 7 weeks old now . . . it's been FAR too long without a blog post, but life has gotten in the way just a wee bit. The puppies take a LOT more time now, plus I brought home my kitten a week and a bit ago, so that has added to my load.

Without further ado . . .

This is LB, my 5 month old Persian Himalayan

The wonderful Farley, AKA World's Cutest Dog. He's now 15 years old and still ticking.

    You have your hands full for sure! I love puppies at this age. Opie's still my favorite though! lol! You have such great dogs, I love how patient Kermit is with all the youngsters. And that's quite the pretty little princess kitty too. She has that "I'm the kitty of this household" look down already.
Thanks for more great pictures!

Four Weeks Old!

Thursday, September 18, 2014

It's really hard for me to believe that the puppies are already four weeks old. It seems like just yesterday I was waiting impatiently for them to arrive. Not only can they see and hear, but they're up on their feet and barking and growling like mad. They're just so stinking cute now . . . and they love their Uncle Kermit, who returns the sentiment in spades.

First time outside

Happy 3 Week Birthday Puppies!

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Yesterday was the puppies' three week birthday. They celebrated by getting haircuts (not really THEIR idea of a good time, but they need to learn to accept the clippers) and playing a bit with the adult dogs. Boy 4 is definitely the most interactive - he is interested in dealing with the adult dogs, while the other two boys mostly just want to sleep. They'll come around, though, I'm sure of it. Now it's getting to the fun stage - they're much more fun when they bark and trill and move around.
