The little puppies think they are big dogs now. We leave the shed door open during the day and they are free to roam around and explore.
They love bounding through the dead leaves and running over the hills.
They quite enjoyed the rock pile and playing King / Queen of the hill.
Megan arrived last week and has picked out her favorite puppy, this little black girl who looks a lot like Molly.
I am happy to report that all ten puppies now have wonderful new homes. We ran an ad in the papers down in Everett and Seattle and met some very nice people. I did screen the callers carefully and told quite a few ” I don’t think this is quite the right puppy for you.”
On the last day when only two of the puppies were left, we took them on the loop walk with the big dogs.
They were very excited about their new adventure and ran and played like Molly and Grizzly do.
By the time we got out to the back pasture they were lagging a little behind the big dogs, but they caught up. Everyone had a favorite puppy and this one was Rick’s. A male with very definite blue heeler markings.
His new owners named him Toby, which was the name of Rick’s first dog many years ago. Seems kind of fitting.
So all the puppies have gone to their new homes. Some are going to be delivered by Santa on Christmas morning. It has been an adventure with the puppies, and mostly we enjoyed it. Now we are back to just the two we started with.
