Winding Down

 
Puppy chores will be winding down soon. Two weeks ago we did microchips, last week we did BAER testing, this week it's vaccinations and Vet checks, plus three stool checks and worming along the way.  Visitors every day this week including two groups today, and one tomorrow.  On Friday Jess and I will get together to do puppy pictures.  On Saturday Feeney will head off to his new home, and Summerset will leave the next day.  Two pups will fly out to their new homes next week.  Puppy booklets to finish up, literature to print out.  Books (puppy raising and raw feeding) have arrived, registration applications are back from AKC and I have collars for everyone.  Whew!  How did I manage this when I was working full time?
 
Time to go through my list, and decide who would make the perfect owners for Dallas, when I finally decide to let her go. Sigh...
 
Fern is enjoying just being a dog again.  She and Max have been wrestling, playing keep away with Fern's beloved pig, and she's been nagging me endlessly to throw the darn thing for her.  Yesterday we went down to the river, and she had a chance to splash in the water for the first time in over two months,  She certainly enjoyed it!  Fern came through the litter in great condition, and we hope to go for her Grand Championship next Spring. This winter Fern will do an obedience class - she's exceedingly smart, but often has her own way of doing things, so it should be interesting.

It must be extra hard to let the special ones go. I know you will find the perfect home for little Dallas, what a cutie.

I have so enjoyed reading about the progress of Fern and her puppies. Best wishes to all of the pups in their new homes, and to Fern in her obedience class!

Where are you located? My husband and I have been searching for a female dalmatian for awhile now but can't find the right one for our family. I've read your post and your dog's are very beautiful. Is there another way I can contact you?
