Chester Out and About

Posted in C-Litter on January 30th, 2011 by Peter

The Blue collar dog is now called Chester. His new owners will be picking him up in a couple of weeks. He is now nine weeks old and weighs 20 lbs. Here are a few pictures playing in the yard with the adult dogs.

Sleeping Pippa

Posted in C-Litter on January 29th, 2011 by Peter

It seems like the puppies are keeping there owners busy. Here are some comments from Pippa’s family.

” Pippa is doing great.  Thought you’d enjoy these pictures of her sacked out; she often ends up in some pretty funny positions when she’s asleep!  Funny girl.

I have to tell you (and I hope I’m not jinxing myself) that she has been AMAZING with potty training.  Over the weekend she started ringing the bells that we have for Henry to let us know when he needs to go out.  I thought she was just curious of the bells, but I now realize she is in fact ringing them to alert us that SHE has to go out!  I am not exaggerating by saying she has only had two piddle accidents in the house since we got her (both were on my husband’s watch –  I don’t think he recognized her cue).  This is a very different experience than my previous puppies…  she seems to understand already that inside is not the place to go.

… I hurt my back, but my kids have been a huge help, and Pippa has risen to the occasion.  When nobody else is here, I am able to get up slowly to take her out, but I cannot pick her up again yet.  She makes it all the way to the door, waits for me there and then goes right on cue outside.  I think she’s going to be a breeze to obedience train!

She is also sleeping through the night (11-6).  

What a great little puppy….thank you!!!

Lily at Rest

Here are some comments from Lily’s family:

“… more photos of Lily resting on snow boots and my black fleece jacket.  It’s much harder to get a photo of her when she is awake. She is doing so well with very few accidents in the house.  We are having a great time with her!

Lily’s Ride Home

Posted in C-Litter on January 24th, 2011 by Peter

I try to remember to air each puppy before sending them home. Here is what can happen otherwise.

“Hi Peter! She is a delightful puppy! We are having a blast with her. We ended up back at our friend’s house in McLean for a few hours yesterday because she had a poop explosion in her crate a few minutes after we left your place. We hosed down the crate while she ran around with our son in the yard and got more familiar with us. We had lunch and then set out for home.”

Sorry Banks Family!

Here are a couple of Lily’s pics in her new home.

From the Kennelly family which adopted Pippa (white collar girl). It didn’t take long for these two to become BF for life.
