.....and then there were two

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Saturday, March 26, 2016,
 Nearly all of our puppies are now in their forever homes. It's so sad to see them go but I'm excited for the next chapter of their lives.  There is so much more that you can do for them now, than what I was able to do for entire litters of puppies. They were well loved here, and as many of you told me, very well fed. I believe they all came with great socialization skills, an enduring playfulness, and an intelligence that you will find surprising.  They should be very easy to housebreak if y...

Five Have Found Their Forever Homes

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Wednesday, March 16, 2016,
Puppies are leaving at a rate of one per day.  Jack O'Lantern and Sky left Friday, Purple left Sunday, Monday we said goodbye to Daffodil, today Pumpkin flew to his forever home, tomorrow Red is leaving, Thursday Blue is leaving and one a day after until Monday, when three are leaving.  One would never think that 17 pups in a pen seems empty, but I can feel the loss.  It is so nice to know they will have the one on one attention and training that they deserve, which I cannot provide.

We still ...

A Lazy Saturday

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Sunday, March 13, 2016,
Today was our last quiet day for two weeks.  We decided the pups needed more space and kennel experience, so we enlarged their area and gave them three open kennels they can lay in.  They like the extra space.  A family sent me a picture of a play structure for their pup and we loved it, so off to Home Depot we went this morning.  We spent an hour making them an adventure box, mostly out of recycled materials and they love it.  Wish we would have seen this year ago.  We saw as many as 9 at on...

They Are Leaving

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Saturday, March 12, 2016,
The puppies are beginning to go to their forever homes.  It is sad to see them go, but I realize they really need the one on one training now and 8 weeks is the easiest transition week for a puppy.  It only becomes more difficult after this week, as they start to become more dominant or submissive with litter mates.  

Today, Jack O'Lantern and Sky went to their new owners.  It is going to go fast in the next two weeks, but they are more than ready.  They have been weaned for two weeks now, Mom...

First Vet Visit

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Friday, March 11, 2016,
We took 12 to the veterinarian yesterday.  We decided to wait on the late pickups, as the flight certificates are only good for 10 days after a vet visit, and then it is back to the vet for another checkup before flight, sooo.... we took the first 12 that are leaving in the next 9 days.  They all had great check ups, all but one was quiet for the doctor.  Most were real champs, a couple of them were nervous and all went well.

On the way back, one threw up on another one, but no clues were rema...

Thank You

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Tuesday, March 8, 2016,
Thank you for all of the pick up information.  I am slowly getting around to responding, as you successfully inundated me with texts and emails.  I appreciate the information and it will take me a day or so to respond to it all.

Tonight was a fun night with the pups.  Here are a few stories:  Snowflake is my little Houdini.  She escapes from the pen a dozen or more times a day.  She loves playing with the older dogs and today, when I arrived home, she was sleeping on a pair of Uggs that I had ...

Please Send Pick Up Information

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Monday, March 7, 2016,
Even if you have already, please resend pick up information.  I discarded all of my text messages in an effort to make room in my phone to send you videos.  I have information on about 30% of the pickups at this time.  Thank you.

Pictures Are Up

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Sunday, March 6, 2016,
New pictures are up.  This was an 8  hour process today.  I miss playing with them when I am downloading, resizing, renaming and uploading pictures all day.  Yesterday was a house cleaning day and showing pups to a family, so it has been all about puppies again this weekend.  They are fun and I will miss them when they are gone.


They love to play and don't realize that if they are awake and another is asleep, that the puppy who is sleeping, might not want to play.  Everything is free game for ...

Seven weeks

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Sunday, March 6, 2016,
Time has flown by.  I can hardly believe my little bundles of joy are 7 weeks old.  They now play more than they sleep, but they sleep all night. When I awaken at 6 am they are generally playing with each other.  No barks, no whines, they play quietly until we come downstairs whether it is 6am or 8 am.   I generally feed them and most pups in the past bark and whine so loud that it awakens everyone.  23 puppies and they all just watch me while I prepare their meal with just a few whines.  Blu...
