It Has Been Way Too Long….

I know, it has been way, way too long since posting and I barely know where to start to catch you up on all of the happenings here. It’s been a whirlwind summer in “Puppydom!” It’s been more than a lot of fun and more than a lot of work! I’ll never catch up but have felt much too guilty about taking any time to do one of my favorite things–writing–while most of the world is upset with me for not having their projects complete. So, I have resisted but will get back to regular posts very soon.

 

I have much to share with you, too. Not only all of the puppy updates, new family photos, etc., but also the winning photos for the calendar, and some very exciting news (but I dare not jinx it until it is a “sure thing”)! Just to tease you, it just might be a huge step toward what has been a dreamy-goal (that’s my word for a dream turned goal) for many years. 🙂  If it all happens, it will open up fantastic opportunities for folks wanting their Llewellin trained on wild birds in the Northwoods and more… much more. But I hesitate to say more at this moment… but I am dying to… but I won’t.

 

In other upcoming news, I will be starting a new training article series this Fall and am really looking forward to that–the training, the time and bonding with the dogs, and writing and sharing it with you. Very useful information for everyone with pups, older pups, adult dogs, and even special-needs dogs.

 

Well, I know all are disappointed the puppy cam hasn’t been live most of the summer and I apologize. I have an almost dead laptop and my good Web cam fell in the puppy’s water dish one day while I was rearranging things! UGH. I just haven’t been able to replace it and the other Web cam is just awful in lower-light situations. But, as soon as I can, I want to get another cam and show you Jenna’s pups! OH MY GOSH–they are really something else! Just two weeks old today, and they are zooming around the whelping box. I absolutely love this age–eyes are just opened and they can be in a super sound sleep and Jenna will ever-so-carefully step into the box and WHAM–the pups are awake and zooming around looking for her so they can chow! I don’t know, I guess you just have to be here (or on the Web cam…. if I had one… grrrr) to see this. All litters do this, but my gosh, these guys seem so incredibly strong and keen to her presence that it is astounding to me.

 

I know, I know, I haven’t even posted photos of these beauties yet! UGH, I am awful. I just cannot keep up with anything. Falling apart in my old-age, I guess! There are not enough hours in the day and I am (obviously) not super-human lately in even the slightest way.

 

Vet appointment today and Cree and Elijah are all set to fly out to their new homes Monday. I think I will be meeting Booker’s new mum and dad too. They are getting married today and getting a new puppy in a few days–what a life-changing week in many ways for them, eh? Darling Atlanta pup will be leaving for her new home Sunday. Things are hopping, to say the least.

 

I will be back very soon with more regular posts, photos, news, and information–until then, have a great day and hug your Llewellin!
