Dennis goes home tomorrow, his work is done.  We made five trips to the reproductive vet in Grand Rapids to ensure we got babies this time.  As it turns out Rosalie cycles five days later than average so we were missing her fertile days.  Through blood work we were able to track ovulation ( I know TMI) to ensure SUCCESS!! His next mission is Grace babies ( in about 12 days, her cycle is normal).  We’ll keep him busy then too swimming and playing at the park, he has a good time at poodle camp😊

Earl/Charlie Bou under went “man berry” removal today (gee is it that time already?) What a fabulous boy he is (Rene and Wally baby) so funny and SO SMART! He has the most wonderful dark red color! Rene won’t have babies till spring but sister Rosalie should have babies just before Halloween.  We are excited!! Can’t wait to see what colors she has with Dennis!! Phantoms for sure!!

The DOTTIE & WALLY babies could not be cuter! They have personality plus.  And so loving!! Dottie and Wally have had two litters and their families are smitten with their babies😀 their next litter will be Novemer 8 (give or take) like last time we got red and white parti and black and white parti! We are taking deposits from special people who will treat our baby like a treasured baby😍 we’ll be busy but when we have babies it’s all we do, we never miss daily photos of every baby and no matter how busy we are, every baby is treated like he/she is our only one.  We love this and it shows!!

Dennis wants to play.  So he puts his toys on the table knowing you will immediately throw them off haha.  He is so darn cute and will be happy to go home Thursday. He’ll be back for Grace babies😀 He likes her! Licks her ears and kisses her ( he lives with her big sister Doris/Shelby) she ROARS when she’s had enough and he scrambles to get out of harms way ( she loves her Ruben ROAR) haha.

It’s beginning to look like Rene, Dottie and Grace might miss the reunion they will be in heat and can’t come😩

Parker is our Nicole’s litter mate.  And beloved boy of Jeff and Cheryl.  I met Jeff when he got Claude from us in 1993😀 back then where we live now was our cottage and we’d haul the puppies with us every weekend, Jeff would come visit.  Claude loved Jeff SO MUCH! In 2000 they added Bonnie to their family.  When Claude passed I didn’t have any puppies but had just acquired Nicole and told them about Parker.  In 2010 after Bonnie’s passing they got Fifi/Blanche from the Shrek litter.  We are always happy to see all four of them at the reunions😊 our friends and fellow poodle lovers😍

Waiting for their pontoon ride! Mindy and Tom are in Lansing so the girls are here with us.  Since I don’t want Dennis to see her, he went swimming, she gets a boat ride.  The other girls get frisky with her as they are all about to start their heats.  Since Rosalie’s babies will be close to Halloween we changed the theme to HOCUS POCUS ( one of our favorite movies) Vet visit tomorrow hoping for good news about moving forward😀

Hahaha we had lots of laughs watching Dennis swim with the girls😀 he was having so much fun he didn’t know where to leap next!! He REALLY likes Rene and is doing his best to win Grace over.  I have kept him away from Rosalie so when they meet he’ll be excited😀 Another vet visit Monday to judge Rosalie’s progress.  WHOOO HOOO!! WE can’t wait😋
