Time To Move On

Mariah & Patrick

Today I need to get things ready so that Patrick can fly out tomorrow.  Check up and health certificate done, as well as his first vaccination.  His new mom Michelle will take him back to Arizona with her, where he will meet Lucy, a Josie daughter and also an ear patch.  Patrick is a sweetheart, with beautiful black eyes and handsome spotting.  We had hoped he could go as carry on, but is just too large for that now and will have to ride in cargo as excess baggage.  Sounds so demeaning!  He will be last on, first off though, and pups handle shipping very well.  Patrick and Eddie are currently playing in the shipping crate, running in and out with toys, so he will be quite comfortable when confined.

Then we have to decide where Eddie goes for camp.  Will he go to Iowa and stay with my friend Lisen who is recovering from a broken ankle, or will he go up to Canada with Lucy's  family (this is another Lucy) when they go home from the dog shows this weekend.  Depends on whether or not Lisen is up to managing a puppy right now.  Stay tuned!

The pups have been really good in their pen in the basement.  They had a great time running around the basement several times a day, and coming up to play with Mariah and terrorize the adults.  They're no longer chubby little doughballs and have run off their pudginess.

Eddie continues to look good.  Quite a handsome little dude who actually looks more like grandpa Watson than he does like Argus.
