Spring is in the air, the snow has all melted, and my youngest son is building me a new walk path to our house!
We had stepping stones that kept getting grown over with grass resulting in a very bumpy and undefined path, and it was time for a clearer walkway.
My husband scored these bricks from the chimney of an old farm house that sadly burned down. My boys meticulously cleaned them and today is the big day to get them placed in the pathway.
The cats, Bumper, our big orange cat, and his sidekick, Black Kitty, are watching the whole process come together.
But this is not the only new thing happening around here!
We have new puppies! Scarlett had a litter of F1b puppies a couple weeks ago and today is our first look at them! I will be putting up their litter interest link with all the vital information in the next blog post.
Then Pearlie had a small litter of just two pups, a dark solid sable girl and a black boy. I will post their litter post soon.
And then we have Paige. Today might be the day, or more likely in the middle of the night tonight, but she is ready in her whelping space and I can’t wait to see what is inside this huge belly!
She looks very uncomfortable, but she hasn’t started digging yet. It should be very soon!
After this, we’ve had a few more dogs breed, so we are looking toward a very busy spring!
Also, my mom is back home. She stayed with us for 3.5 weeks and everything went very well. I spent some time with her and my sister, which was long overdue. Here’s a quick snap of the three of us at my mom’s house.
Tell me, are you interested in hearing more about my personal life in this blog? Or should we stick to just dogs? I do have a personal blog but it would be easier if everything was all in one place! Let me know!
PS, the path is almost finished!!
I’m no longer on the wait list but I still like reading your posts, and I think this combo post of personal and dogs was great! Having had two children, I totally sympathize with Paige. Man, the end is tough! Best wishes to her birthing!
Kristy, Enjoy your pictures. I am moving up the waiting list (66), and judging from the last couple of litters, I may be close to getting to choose a pup. I am interested in a male on the larger size of the spectrum, e.g., 18 pounds or so? Are the Scarlet’s F1b’s apt to be on the smaller side? Any pregnant mom’s that are likely to have pups on the larger end, or is it possible to know before they are born? I’d rather get the right pup than rush my decision.
My wife and I were the ones who were going to come out for a visit last fall when we were in Spokane to visit friends, but we missed connecting with you.
Thanks very much, John Byrne
Keep the news coming! Love hearing how your world is going! Thanks Kristy.
Kristy, I love hearing about you and family. Bentley just had his first birthday on 3/24. It has been a fun 10 months with him! I have found a dog who adores me, is soft and cuddly and sleeps always on my bed, he is a constant companion and always wants to see me, he is bigger than I expected but perfect for me. I didn’t want a 10 pound dog and he is a healthy 25 pounds. He gets attention wherever we go and people stop to admire, pet, take photos, and get your name. Thanks for bringing this adorable companion into my life. He is much loved.
Hi Kristy, We love your personal updates! We are currently on the wait list and it feels great to know that our future puppy is coming from a loving home.
