I am officially back! After this past litter, I just needed a break away from blogging; next time I will make sure to actually tell everyone first though, forgive me for neglecting to do that! Things have been busy for the past week, and except for crazy rain and flooding in the area, it has been a good kind of crazy.
First up while I was away, this beautiful boy followed me home from a walk around the neighborhood, and I took him in; sweetest dog, well mannered, house trained, perfect with dogs and cats, just an awesome boy! After a couple days, finally found the owners, and to add even more of a twist to the story, they didn’t want him back! They said he had been running off constantly, (he is not fixed and now is when a large amount of dogs are in heat 🙄) so, they surrendered him, also informing me to watch touching his back as it had been broken after getting run over as a pup, making it sensitive for him. This crazy story does have a happy ending thankfully as he got adopted yesterday by a wonderful family who had been looking for that special dog for a few months, they clicked from the moment they met! Who wouldn’t fall in love with that face!? So glad I was able to give him the helping hand he needed to get a great family.
I have done some expanding to the outdoor portion of the puppy space, and am so excited for the extra room! Now watch the next litter be 14 puppies, but hey, I have been telling the family I have been wanting another large litter, (I know, I really am that insane puppy lady 😂) but seriously, I actually am looking forward to the next large litter, ever since Belle’s 12, I have loved the idea of having another one, it may be more work, but it isn’t too much for me. Things always seem to happen right before I need them, so we shall see!
First photo was taken about a year back, and the second was taken today; yes, the grass needs to grow back for sure, I have had non-stop litters since last July, so it never had a chance to spring back like it has in years past. Thankfully the grass is starting to grow back now, and if we get a pregnant dog or younger litter it should have time to catch up before the puppies are all over it. Honestly though, I am much more concerned with helping as many litters as possible than having grass in the run 😉
Happy March everyone! Am I the only one shocked that it really is March already? Crazy that spring will officially be here in less than a month, though we are getting an early start with flowers already beginning to appear and most days in the 60s, with one day hitting 80. I guess it’s making up for the cold winter weather we have had. Hope you all have an amazing weekend, and to start it off right, here is a cute face from my spring 2016 litter, enjoy!
