Saying goodbye to 3 puppies in one day...

Today was an emotional day as a puppy raiser..On one hand we got to see one of our puppies (Tandy) graduate and meet her amazing new partner-everything we could have hoped for..

On the other hand we said goodbye to a puppy (Marina) that we shared the raising duties with along with 3 other awesome girls and I think I can safely say 3 of the 5 of us considered running away to Canada with this puppy..Saying goodbye to her as she heads off to in-home training was pretty disappointing, but she looked gorgeous and we can't wait to hear about her new partner..

Finally-yesterday we found out that our boy, Doug, would be headed back to campus today instead of next week. He is back on campus for his ongoing diarhea issues..We were very sad to leave him all alone in a kennel, but we hope he will enter into training or get career changed soon so he isn't alone in a kennel for long..
Doug at 10 weeks..
Doug at 14 months..We still come home home to 3 of our own pet dogs and a foster puppy, yet, we miss our Doogie Dog..The easiest dog we have ever raised--I have had a part in 10 puppies, Bethany 20 puppies and we both can't believe what an incredibly easy dog Doug was to live with for the past 13 months..

Our transfer pup should come in about a month..

Dublin got his recall changed, then changed back to the original recal for Oct 16th, I will be taking him back to campus then.
Dougie is still having problems? So sorry for him, he is a gorgeous pup too!
