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.
Wooooo!! Seven weeks is a tough time for photographs! This crew loves to be outside. They have so much fun running through the yard, chasing each other, balls, and people. Their energy is contagious and we are loving every minute of having them with us!
In just seven short days, they'll be ready to meet their forever families! The photographs are fun, but we're so excited for people to get their hands on their new family members!
They are eating well, sleeping in their crates, and growing every day!
14 puppies, 4 children, 9 short weeks, probably close to 10,000 pictures taken and at least double that in memories!
Can you imagine trying to get four kids and seven puppies to look in the same direction at the exact same time? Ha! Ha! I wanted to make sure we had a nice group shot of all my babies this spring. And believe it or not, getting four kids to sit and look at the camera is actually MUCH harder than seven puppies! Ha! Ha!
SEVEN WEEKS OLD!
Many of these pups are just seven days away from meeting their forever families! This is such a bittersweet time, but we are definitely excited for these little loves to meet their new families.
Everyone is doing great! They are sleeping in their crates with minimal fussing and we didn't have any accidents last night! Hooray!
We have a vet appointment scheduled for Friday afternoon to get their first round of shots. We're looking forward to showing these babies off to Dr. Brent and his staff! :)
