Where has the time gone? These sweet, precious little lives that needed so much nurturing have turned into real, honest-to-God-little puppy lives that get bigger every day! The quest to keep them safe and healthy changes day by day as they grow and get bigger - it was a eye opener this week when we realized they were not going to be OK in the weaning box for much longer - so now what do we do? Holy Cow! AND THERE ARE TEN OF THEM! What was I thinking? We have been on a mission this week to find a small outbuilding that we can purchase and enclose with kennel fencing that will accommodate the pups overnight needs as well as Momma Stormy and the puppies need for space and play areas. Think we have found it and will post photo's over the weekend as friends of SCGSDR arrive to help us put our plan into action! Puppy personalities are emerging BIG time! We have "BUFFY" the Bottle Slayer :), "LINK" who continues to be the largest, heavy boned male and leader of the pack, "PENNY" who has stolen my heart with her trilling to her puppy friends at meal times, "AVA" who continues to be my biggest challenge at meal time, sweet, sweet, RILEY, ROSE. COWBOY and MISSY - they are the fluffiest - and so sweet and undemanding - I realized tonight that I am in LOVE with all of them - it will be meltdown on the mountain for sure as they all get old enough to leave Grandma (me) - Momma Stormy continues to improve - hard to say but she is so over her puppies! All she wants at this very moment is to follow me into the house and be part of the pack - I can't let her of course, because of the mange and the number of other dogs here - but am so looking forward to the day when she can be loved by her new family!
