Everyone is growing up, yet we still have 5 pups at the house so we've decided it's time to give them 'real' names. Of course, each pup has their registered name, but so far they haven't had a 'call' name.

Blue is now Sky
Red is now Nova
Pink is now Faith
Yellow is now Monty
Green is for now called 'Africa' as there is a chance she may be moving to South Africa.

First Snow

Today the puppies got to experience snow for the first time, they clearly enjoyed it!

Blue gets re-tested

When we did this litter's hearing tests at 6 weeks old, the machine acted up when we tried to do Blue's test. The audiologist said "passed but questionable", so to be sure - we took Blue to NW Vet Specialists and had her re-tested by someone else, with more reliable equipment. Blue passed with flying colors! She's definitely bi-lateral. We were very thankful for these results as Blue is one of the nicest puppies in the litter and will make a beautiful show dog. Blue is still available to a serious show home - please contact us for more info if interested.

Purple goes home

Miss Purple headed off to her new home in Vancouver, WA today. She will get to live with another pretty Dal who is black spotted and about 8 years old. Hopefully she is welcomed into their pack with open arms. Purple was the quietest pup of this litter and should be pretty easy to get along with. We'll be looking forward to getting photos and updates from Purple and Jim as she grows up.

Final Week

This is a big week, all of the 'girl homes' have made their picks except the very last person who is still trying to decide. Friday the 30th the first puppy will be going to their new home, and then most of the others will be leaving over the weekend and following week. Everyone will be greatly missed, but the pups are ready... they need their own people so they can start learning like little sponges!

BAER Hearing Results

It's been so busy around here I haven't had a chance to make the big announcement.... all the babies have bi-lateral hearing accept little Red girl who is a uni (deaf in one ear). Red will make a great pet for someone and they will likely never notice that she's deaf in the one ear; you sure can't tell right now, she's full of herself!

Today it was finally sunny and warm enough for the babies to get to make a trip outside. For their first trip they only got their x-pen in the front yard, but we are hoping this week we will have more days were they will get to try out the big pen out back (20x20 grassed dog kennel). Today they got to be out front seeing that's where I was working on painting the outside of our house ~ I wanted to keep an eye on them. They had several visitors, as nothing attracts the neighbors like spotted babies playing in the front yard!

Purple, Liver Girl

Purple has been the smallest girl since birth, although she's within an ounce or two of the others now.

Red, Liver Girl

Red is our wild and wooly one! She has slightly longer hair then the rest of the pups (just like her daddy) and is so adorable. :)

Green, Liver Girl

After playing out in the living room, green couldn't stay awake any longer - the rest of the babies were playing around her, but she was catching some Zzz's.
