An Outing with the Puppies

We have had several days of incredible weather; with temperatures we'd be happy to have in the summer.  I felt it was time for the puppies we are growing out to experience their first walk. 

I realized that at ten weeks of age the girls in the Inception x Jivara litter didn't have names and having nothing original in mind, decided to recycle names from a litter we had 13 years ago.  The little girl in the litter is now called "Jenny"

While not in focus I like how this photo shows Taylor's movement.
Twiggy left and Taylor right
Oops what is this?
First water rat...
Rehannah and Christie (white faced girl)
Christie and Taylor now at the puddle...that is now three water babies!
Eeeek!  Taylor isn't so sure...
Christie starting to go a bit wild!
Conner a bit tentative, but he got his paws wet too...a fourth puppy gets wet
He isn't really a fan.
Taylor trying to decide what to do...
Everyone is on the other side, so might as well!
Not convinced this is a good thing...
Jenny in the puddle...looks like she's drooling (but she's not).
Jenny doesn't look thrilled with the cold water either...
Christie on the other hand thought it was fantastic!
I think she likes it!
A natural water dog!
Even Rehannah got her toes wet.

This is the sister to "Twiggy" also by BPIS Ch Shelhaven Outback x Laureate Alinea (Juno) and co-bred with Pennylynn Woodruff.  She isn't as wild and crazy as her sister and prefers to take things at her own speed.  In the few days she has been here I've noticed she likes to be behind things (my legs) and underneath cover such as a crate or a chair.
So when I took her outside for the first time by herself I wasn't surprised when she ran for the bushes for cover (or so I thought).
The funny thing was, she didn't seem afraid or concerned.  She was out to kill that juniper bush!
I didn't put her there...she jumped in!  She was having a ball.
She is darling and today she got her name..."Juniper".

Twiggy's Taste of the Great Outdoors

I went to Pennylynn's last night to pick up our Juno puppies.  We brought home the two girls in the litter and will be growing out this little girl we've named "Twiggy".  She is outgoing and bold and had a busy morning playing with the older puppies and then upstairs with me, LuAnne and Foo in the kitchen.  The weather was beautiful today so I decided it was time for a taste of the great outdoors!
And taste she did.  She tasted the water in the puddle...
She tasted the snow (yucky)
Nommed her foot
Sat for a second
What's this?
Posing briefly
Found some spruce needles!  We are going to have fun with this adventurous girl...

Cocoa Pups at almost 8 weeks

It was snowing and blowing all day so I took the opportunity to snap some photos of the Cocoa pups.  Quite a lot of growing and change has happened since the last blog post and even the little hand reared puppy was finally ready to make his debut.
The white face girl loves playing in the tunnel, but gets even more enjoyment with the toggles. 
Looking very innocent!
The small girl on the left and the narrow blaze girl.  They are very nicely put together and have sweet faces...all three will be grown on as show prospects.
Here is the male in the litter that was hand raised.  He has been making up for his slow start and his growth has really started to accelerate.
