Strange dog

Trinity is very much like her Grandma Kahlua. They are the only 2 dogs who walk(ed) and use the back of the couch as part of their environment. Part cat??

Trinity is actually supposed to be in a crate. She hurt her left front leg playing with her brother on the ice. When it didn't get better in a few days I took her to the vet. He concluded, thankfully, that it was a soft tissue injury and has confined her to crate rest for three weeks!  She's going stir crazy despite my best efforts at supplying her with safe chewies and treat dispensing toys. But this is what happens when I open the crate!  Sorry girl. Back in you go!😔

They’ve taken over the house!

The puppies are much too big to be confined to one room in the house. They pretty much have the run of the main floor now. My job is pretty much chasing after them all day with paper towels and vinegar. It won't be too much longer and they will transfer out to the new puppy building. We are just doing a few minor adjustments to the facility and they will head out there.   More room to build muscles and start to learn a little independence. Although they are all courageous by nature, nurture is extremely important too. Just like you could do terrible things and erase the courage, you can spend extra time to encourage it. Everyone has to remember that the dog you get will be a perfect blank slate and what you do with that slate is up to you. The amount of time and effort you put in in the next few months will be rewarded tenfold later!

Moving day! Almost.

The puppy play building is ready for its new tenants!  New floor, new shavings, new toys!  And tons of room to run and play!

Email Problems

Since February 9th, my email has been shut down due to invalid certificate issues.  Whatever that means.  I am working on getting things back up and rolling ASAP.  Thank you for your patience.

Was trying to sort out some of my pictures today and I often am told I don't have enough pictures of Nova on the site.  So here are some!  Note the non-English on the x-rays as they were taken by one of Belgium's top veterinarians.  Also, the pictures of the younger version of her were taken in Belgium.  I brought her over at 14 months of age.

Nova Breeding

Nova went into heat about 2 weeks ago but never it never really progressed into a full heat. Sometimes they can have a split heat which means they start, then stop, then start again in a few weeks time. I'm hoping that will be the case with Nova. If she doesn't come into a full heat I will plan on breeding Fia when she comes in. She should come into heat near the end of February.
