This is a quick update to let everyone know Lilly & Skippy had their puppies. I will post pictures soon. We have 2 beautifully marked sable/white females, that’s it. I am happy because the puppies are healthy and look nice and fat. I am super disappointed because we needed a big litter for everyone waiting to bring their puppy home in July. But it is what it is, and I can’t do anything about it.
In other news, Bella finally went home to Iowa. We had to try twice. Apparently, when the pilot comes to the aircraft, he does one final check of everything, including the hold where animals will travel. He discovered that the oxygen was not working on Friday’s flight, so Bella was sent back to the cargo office, and we picked her up from the airport. We tried again Saturday morning and Bella made it safely home to Iowa with no complications.
We still have Louis, our blenheim male puppy that is being Accelerated. His final home will be New York City! He went with me last night to the activity at my kids’ school, and got a taste of what life looks like with lots of people and noise and commotion. He did great! He will have many more opportunities to get used to the bustle of life as we are taking him everywhere with us. He slept in his crate last night as well, and successfully went outside this morning and peed and pooped. He laid with me on the couch for a while, then I crated him and went to the nursery to check on Lilly’s girls. When I got back, Louis had pooped in his crate. Bad Boy. So the process continues with some successes and some failures. It’s all part of the process. His special litter box came in the mail and I am going to set it up today and get him started on it. He will be using the Porch Potty at his new home, so we are training him to use the travel version now.
Princess, one of our Bichon girls is very preggo and should deliver Bichon Frise puppies in the next week or so. She is in the nursery and we are hoping for a great delivery with 3-5 puppies. The males from the litter will be available for adoption in July.
And finally, we have 2 black/tan Cavalier female puppies that will be available for adoption soon. They will be for pet homes only, so please inquire only if you plan to have them spayed. Stay tuned for photos of all this news. Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!
