Miss Lou has been extra cuddly lately.
It's not very often the pups choose me over the kids...
No complaints here.
We spent a few days in a cabin this week! It was so fun. We swam, hiked, and just enjoyed being together. We had ZERO reception while we there. I snapped this picture on the first day and left my phone on the night stand for the rest of the trip. I'm a little sad I didn't think to take any pictures, but it was very refreshing to take a break from the technology that tends to consume us.
Tripp doesn't get a lot of recognition on here, but he is really the best of the best. He is what started our love for PWD's and every single time we're around him, my heart bursts with love. He is so sweet with my littles. He played hard with Thomas all morning and then gave him the sweetest goodbye when it was time for us to go.
It is 100 degrees outside. Lola is in heaven! She will play in this pool and the mud puddles it creates ALL DAY LONG! We are bribing her to come inside. She is a fish... a true water dog!
Livie is not a fan. While she loves water and swimming, (and even snow) when it's REAL hot, she wants an air conditioner! She sits at the door pouting during out nightly family time. A porch pirate, waiting for someone to open the door so she can make a break for it! Ha! Ha!
We had a busy week! We visited Doctor Brent at the clinic for our yearly well-checks, shaved down those long coats in preparation for the upcoming summer heat, and spent some time on the farm! We are all ready for a relaxing weekend!
And, an updated family photo, because it's been a while! :)
"Hello Friends! It's been over a week since our last pup went home! With 14 puppies and a pandemic, we really never left our house for those 9 weeks! It was so nice to spend so much time together as a family and the puppies were EXACTLY what we needed to keep us from going stir crazy!
Things are much quieter now and we spent the last week reaching out to family that we had not seen a while! We have received a lot of updates from forever families and it seems like everyone is loved beyond measure and doing well. We appreciate all the pictures and updates!
We are looking forward to enjoying this extended summer break! Keep checking in to follow our adventures!
Today's "adventure" includes: baths and haircuts!
Our pack is a little short today! The first two pups have already headed home and the rest will quickly follow!
It's been a wild day! We've had picks up and it's been raining off and on all day. Today's storms, paired with the rain from the rest of the week, have left my yard a flooded, muddy, mess! The pups don't mind at all and have enjoyed playing in the puddles, but they are DIRTY! Everyone will definitely be getting baths before bed tonight! On top of this, and completely un-puppy related- my sister had her baby today!!
The pups are all receiving lots of extra love, cuddles, and attention from the kiddos as we soak up our last few days with them!
Please forgive the poor photo quality. My camera is not doing it's thing today! :(
We're down to three, and the disappearing of litter mates has their energy turned up high!
I got a good laugh at the running pictures today. The crazy wind, combined with their own speed, made for some pretty funny pictures this evening. Ha! Ha!
It's been a bittersweet day! Full of laughs, extra cuddles, meeting new friends, and a few tears.
It's been a beautiful season for us.
We're so excited for these three to meet their forever families and we can't wait to hear about ALL of their adventures to come.
