Dinah, puppies and waiting..

Our starter female black lab, Dinah, (Bosworth/Gail) is set to graduate Dec 4th at the Oregon Campus..This makes 3 graduations in 3 months-we can't believe how well everyone in our club has been doing lately!!

Doug dog in in phase 2..We miss him very much..His sister, Deanna, joined him on campus this month, but is on breeder eval..We also had Dax (Bruna/Atrus) return for training this month from our club.

Our club will be getting 2 puppies on Dec 11th-a FBL (dylan/courtney) "B" girl and a MYLGX "V" boy..We can't wait to meet them!

We heard yesterday that Finese (the female Simon was bred to) is having 6-8 pups and due on 12/29..We CANNOT WAIT to hear when these pups are born..We are just sooo wanting another yellow Simon pup!!

Vona is settling in with us..She is an extremely bouncy, wiggly girl with a little stubborn side to her-she is learning the rules of our multi-dog household and is wonderful on outings. She is off to a puppysitter today who raised her 1/2 sister.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Crazy puppies

I finally got a photo taken of Vona--she is quite the energetic girl so photos ops are few and far between!!

She is a sweet girl who is trying to adjust to a busy house with 3 other dogs. She is a cute little 26 pounds and LOVES to chew on her bones.

On Saturday I got a new temporary foster puppy--a 6 yr old boy is getting a "wish" from Make-A-Wish and his wish....a female yellow lab puppy...the only issue is the family can't take her for a few weeks...The Humane Society that i volunteer for just got a litter of 8 wk old yellow lab puppies in, so I volunteered to take her for a little while...(Our house is set up so I can have occasional foster puppies in one side and GDB pups in the other part of the house)..Little foster puppy is a CRAZY, screaming, energizer bunny! Sadly, she may not work out for the little boy-we are evaluating her tomorrow..

All these crazy yellow lab's a good thing they are cute :-)

Missing Doug, Welcome Vona...Waiting for Simon..

Doug has been on campus for exactly a month now and he is still waiting in phase 0...Not unexpected since he went in on an eval then got put into a string, but a little movement would be nice...I miss that goofy guy and so do my dogs..

Last Monday we got a new transfer-5 month old FYL Vona--she is a David/Zante pup and a petite 26 pounds..We only had her for one evening though before we had to send her to a puppysitter due to our house being full of dogsitting dogs..We are looking forward to getting her back tomorrow and getting to know her..

A few weeks ago we heard that Simon was bred to Finesse..We can not wait to hear any news on this..We REALLY want another Simon puppy..We have raised Simon, 4 of his puppies and co-raised a grand puppy..He is an awesome dog and we really really want another FYL Simon girl!

2 pups in our club are leaving next week for training, Dax & Doug's sister, Deanna...We hope to get a few December puppies in the club so we aren't missing all of our dogs!
