Puppies on the way
I’ve been busy trying to study for mid-terms, when right in the midst of it all, my girl came into season early. I’ve been wanting puppies from her line: Winning show dogs with amazing personalities. Also, they are very smart, which though challenging, makes for great field and obedience dogs. I would really like to start one of the coming puppies in agility as well. This will only be my third litter in some 16 years of owning and showing pure-bred dogs. Several months ago I announced the planning litter, and a few good homes came forward to express interest in a puppy. If my girl has about six puppies, I’m good for homes, but if she does like her mom did and there are 11 (or more), then, I will do what I need to in order to make sure they go to loving homes.
I try very hard to spend equal time with all the dogs, but since my one girl has to be kept separate for this time, it’s hard to not spend just a little more time with her. I don’t want her to feel as if she’s getting punished just for being a girl. I have a TV in her room and we’ll sit on the bed together. She’s constantly trying to snuggle just a little closer.
The other girl and the two boys all race to get on my lap first when I leave the girls room and sit on the couch. I usually end up in the middle of the couch with a brother on either side and my older girl standing in front of me licking my face. This situation makes studying for school complicated, at best, and impossible most of the time.
I’m really looking forward to the new additions to the family. I’ll be busier, but having just as much, if not more fun.
