River Adventure with PUPPIES!!!!!

Hello, Your going puppies? As in plural??? Yes, I am happy to say Cassie brought her Daddy and brother along. Also since Finnegan goes home tomorrow he tagged along. Did you wonder about Wren?? Well, I would be a mean Mommy now wouldn’t I be if she didn’t get to go? All three pups did awesome. Oh, your wondering the adults??? Penny & Camilla ( Mommy to the pups). Loki is still recovering from tripping over the puppies so had to sit this one out. Today all the bike riders were basically friendly. One rude dog walker- she let her dog walk right up to the puppies and let them sniff it… Luckily the adult dogs didn’t see that! And we had a rather rude man literally float in and fish among the dogs. Photo included – photo of shame!
We all had fun. Luckily we made it back to the vehicles prior to a down pour- whew!
Well, enjoy today’s adventure with the now 9 week old trio.

EGADS! I am late on the Crew Updates!

The crew are doing well. Finally recovering after the loss of our Freyia and just a few short weeks later Annie Oakley kitty. Amazing how losing the cat affected the dogs who barely saw her the past two years. But, she was and will always be family.

Loki- our goofy old man. Still a rascal. Slowing down some. Loved the last litter despite them tripping him and spraining his leg!

Ozzy- scared me silly not long ago with a fever of unknown origin. He has recovered and back to his goofy happy self.

Ozzy was being difficult was lucky to get a mug shot

yikes I need a new photo of him!

Penny- Still a rascal who gets into mischief. Loves the puppies and can’t wait till she gets to play with them every day.

Willow- still sweet, goofy and hard headed. She will be next up in rotation for a litter. Hopefully December puppies.

Goliath- Sadly we had to shave the big guy again due to skin issues. He loved playing and interacting with this litter. He is in good spirits and still stubborn.

Titon- Still as sweet as ever. Gives me his daily hugs which are my bliss.

Joey- ah, my goofy boy he still spins on his food bowl spilling his food, now he does it on his biscuits. He was a proud papa of this past litter. He has calmed down alot. Still a bit of a spaz.

Joey being a squinty face

and it isn’t easy to get his mug shots taken always moving.

Ramses- AH, he is a chip off of the ol’ block…. escape artist! He was climbing out of his run, and we added an extension to 12 feet, and now he has taken to digging under. Sigh…. Good thing I love him.

Udens- Our Mush! He is so patient with our bratty girl Lady. She gets to wrestling with him and he just takes it in stride. Once in awhile he will sit on her to make her stop.

Lady- Our sweet, bratty girl. She is a pistol! She did pass her certifications so will be a Mommy hopefully in December- with Ramses.

Lady being a goof

Another one who won’t stand still for photos!

Myrie- Just need to redo her hip exam since her heat cycle made her fail. If she passes – puppies hopefully in December. ( I know your going three litters at once? Well, the odds are only one will have pups- two tops)
She is still a sweet quiet girl who loves playing keep away with her ‘sister’ Camilla.

Camilla- Our sweet girl. She was an awesome mother and an easy delivery. She has her girly figure back and is enjoying playing keep away from her ‘sister’ Myrie.

Looks like I need a more recent photos of her – that is a pregnant shot. chuckle

And the newest member of the family….
Wren! She is sweet, spunky, and loves to go on adventure. She loves visiting all the other dogs already and going for walks.

The kitties:
As you may of noted our Annie Oakley died a few weeks ago. I will say it again CANCER SUCKS! She went out with dignity in my arms. I do miss her. Until we meet again baby girl.

Matilda- having a rough time adjusting to being the eldest kitty. She misses her sister taking care of me and she is trying to fill those pawprints and it is playing havoc with her normal personality. I am not forcing her she is doing this on her own. She sees I am missing Annie and having her in my lap watching tv. Matilda can’t stay still that long in a lap. She tries and I love her for it.
She did her duty and helped train the puppies the rule ” Cats Rule, Dogs Drool” Or ” Bow, to the cat”.

Charley- the bratty little brother. After Annie passed he went off on his own to grieve. He has taken out his sadness on poor Matilda. Yet, he has shown more affection towards me. He did his job and helped train the puppies.

2 More Pups Have Left On Their New Life’s Adventures… Wild Bills Side Show

Today, two more puppies started their new life’s adventures.
First off was Cassie, it was hilarious. She heard her family came running in from the yard and in her hurry face planted and bounced off the expen panel over the door, jumped up and growled at the panel. I think she was excited to see them.

Next up was “Deputy” Whiskey! Not sure whom was happier to see whom! You will know when you see the photos.

Oh MY 6 PUPS left today… Wild Bills Side Show!

Today, I had 10 beautiful sweet mugs greet me this morning, this evening only 4. I have to remember to only count for four until tomorrow evening. Then we will be down to two. The last to leave will be doing so on Friday.
Ok, I am going to try to break this down per puppy I hope the media up loader works.
First to leave was Miss Olivia. The kids still didn’t know and found out later in the day. A sweet video was sent to me. First words out of the girls mouth – from Miss Ellee’s? Smart kid!

Next to leave was sweet little Hazel everyone’s favorite power napper. ( and lap hog)

Then the LONG awaited meeting of at least a couple family members for our boy Crocket. Who Made it up North and is already adored by the whole family including the canine set.

Next up was Gambit who took his first swim all on his own. Sadly someone photo bombed me and I missed getting a photo. But, all were so tickled to witness it.

Ah, our Rogue.. who thought ducking under the drip line during Gambits bath was a smart move. Of course he was in rare form today.

Neptune ah our sweet boy who was destined for Florida … alas, insurance companies suck… ones puppy fund dry. So, I had to find a new home. Interesting enough I have known this family for years, they knew My Neptune even. Well, they expressed a love of him when they went on the big walk. They had spoken about waiting for the winter litters… so, I contacted them. They were beyond excited. Turns out Mom’s Great Grandfather was a Captain of the ship/tug boat The Neptune…. fate.

And what would be a blog post without Penny or Loki or an occasional suprise?

Hey, how did I miss file the photo of Rogue’s family? Oh well… there it is.
Well I tired to break up the photos… too tired to insert in appropriate spaces… so here is the whole mess….

8 Weeks OLD!!! Wild Bills Side Show… and the exodus begins

Hard to believe 8 weeks have gone by already. Some of you will no doubt go through withdrawal after all the pups leave. Wren will try to entertain you.
Bethany has left the building!!!

Today, we had one last snuggle bash for the puppies. Cooper ( Willow’s brother/litter mate) brought his Mommy, Auntie, and ‘nieces’.
Gambit found out he loves to make water splash, he was too quick to get any good shots. I would jump in splash around run out act like a wet streak around the pond, and repeat the process.

I will admit… when we put the puppies up I kept thinking I was missing one…. forgetting Bethany had already left. 20 minutes of looking for the missing puppy only for my Mom to ask ” are you counting for the one who has left already”. Welllllll I was! chuckle. Sigh
Enjoy their last adventure before they all go home.
