Always amusing and always a huge mess is GOO😳 I usually wait till three weeks but it was taking so long to bottle feed all ten I decided to see if they’d eat goo. I was half right, they wear more than they eat. Grace and Lyra do a good job cleaning them off. I so enjoy watching my girls mother babies that aren’t theirs. So sweet. The babies love other dogs because they had so many caretakers.

I love first haircuts 😍 Those adorable little faces get even cuter when you can see them😘 Being so young they are very compliant, every week ( next week front feet) they get a little more resistant. They are doing better eating and are playing with toys. So CUTE! I can’t stand it😍😍😍

Our puppies love kids! Harlee makes sure of that! Schools almost out so she will be here with us most of the summer. She’s a good helper and loves all the puppy kisses😀Mindy, Tom and Lexie went home so Rosie is sad.  Few more weeks and she can go too.  Her sister Rene and the other girls here will be mom to them all once I blend the babies together.  Gee the two months I have them goes fast😢

We do our best to expose the babies to everything here when they are little, so they are confident and well adjusted when going to their new homes. Grace and Lyra LOVE the babies😍 Grace begs to go see them, it’s so cute. I can’t wait for fall and her second litter. Even though I have Lyra I still want a brindle girl☺️ The plan is to co-own a Dottie & Horace boy as a husband for my Grace babies😀
Thanks to Mary and Doug (Savanah and Bentleys parents) I think I’ll have cement for the pavilion in a couple weeks!! I’m so excited!! I’d planned on doing this last year but didn’t have any extra money trying to build a house without borrowing money😕 So I’m not willing to wait anymore☺️

May 26, 2016 Pontoon ride!

The girls love boat rides😀 Lyra has fit right into our poodle family ( I should have kept her in the first place) she loves her mother and does SO MANY Grace things. Everybody adores her. I’m so glad I have Lyra kisses to mend my broken heart😢
Jay/Teddy is spending a few days with us and his visit didn’t start out too well😕 While chasing Lyra all over the park he got stung by bees and his eyes swelled almost shut. I gave him benedryl and put cold compresses on his eyes/nose and in a couple hours he was way better. We went for a pontoon ride and poor Teddy in the mad dash to get on the boat, got knocked off the dock and into the lake where he remained paralyzed unsure of what to do. Poor boy, I hope things improve so I can return him to Terry in one piece😬

Day two of eating from a bowl is usually worse😳 The first day they aren’t sure they like it, the second day they DIVE IN!! Thankfully after a few days they get better( but I’ve had some that never did😁).
We are trying to adjust to life without Parris. Everything reminds me she’s gone😭 First breakfast without Parris, first trip to the park without Parris, first pontoon ride without Parris. It’s a process 😥 She was pack leader so the girls miss her. We’re just sad and from past experience we’ll be that way for awhile😩

May 24, 2016 Goodbye Parris

A very painful day as I said goodbye to my beloved Parris😭 The vet called me yesterday and said she should be better after a month of the Cushing meds ( she isn’t) in looking at her last last tests he felt she had something else as well ( he suspected liver cancer) I was so hoping we had more time. Knowing there were no good days ahead I made the appointment 😭😭😭 As painful as the loss of a beloved pet is, they provide more smiles than tears. We have so many wonderful memories of Parris, always a perfect pet. She was my special girl who howled if we were apart😭 I hope she knows we’re not apart, she is here in my heart😭😭😭
