Rest Before Travel

We can't do a play session outside before departure so we will wing it. Always good to do one before travelling. We are a half hour away from getting on the road. When I get back I have 3 dogs to wash and groom. hahahaha Then I get the area set up for Jeannie.

This is the last of our updates. As these are not our pups I will be archiving this area, giving it to Judy and taking it down in a week or so. Any of the owners who want an aerchive from this or Emmy's litter, just let me know. They say its doable. Will figure it out next week.

We will miss them!

Amelia went to bed with us and she will again tonight. Now to keep her away from any mud till she departs tomorrow. We will see how that works out.

Nike's New Family: Updated

Nike has departed and here is a gallery of his new family. The video will be coming soon. Amelia actually made sounds under her breath. It's tough being the last one. They do adjust quickly. 

Amelia is now out with the big guys playing like crazy. Come Thursday Saffron's crew will move into the big pen and the smaller one will be setup for Jeannie. When Saffron's pups are gone we will divide the large pen and remove the 3rd. We can then get my recliner back in. 

I do believe Emmy and Rowan will miss it around here. I know they had a lot of work with pups but they had an amazing amount of love and fun too. They adpated quite well. Though Cinnamon thinks she is the boss of Rowan. hahahaha

Gallery before Nike departed.

Here is a video before Nike departed.

Nike's Bath

His name is not pronounced Nikee but instead Nike, which rhymes with Pike. Nike goes home early in the morning tomorrow. How did he do with his bath? AMAZING and I mean amazing. He's a water dog for sure. Here is his bath's photos. 

Wow can't believe he is heading to his forever home tomorrow. 

Then Amelia, Rowan and Emmy head back to their home at Judy's Thursday. Friday we head out to the vest again for xrays. Oh boy!

Here is a gallery of Nike and Amelia before the vets. Plus here is a gallery of Amelia at the vets.

Changes and Plans

Looks like we are down to 2 Rowan pups. One Nike (not pronounced Nikee) will go home Tuesday morning. Amelia will go home with her mom and Emmy on Thursday. Amelia goes to the vet tomorrow to get her 2nd set of shots and Nike will get his with his new family. Life is changing.

Now till Thursday we will only be updating the Rowan blog as Emmy's pups have now departed. Today's Emmy's has an update as Fenton went home. Then starting on Friday I will start updating the Jeannie and Adele blogs. This area will come to a close unless I get an update. 

As the pups are now playing with the adults you will have to see the gallery in our main blog area to see the pups. They have no issue keeping up. They are 4 weeks older than Saffrons. Such a difference.

Pups are extra quiet. They have been dealing with a great deal of change. Change actually helps them build their coping skills. This helps them to be all they can be.

Here's a couple of videos:
