A week ago today most of the puppies of our “G” Litter 2014 from Sam and BB went to their new homes. It was a big day for everyone. So big that I forgot to photograph both of the puppies and owners who went home to Minnesota. Gascon went home with Will and Gabriella went home with Brad, but I have no pictures! Hopefully, I can catch up with them later.
Here are the parting shots:
We enjoyed meeting everyone and sending these fabulous puppies home with them, but spending the afternoon with Charbel was quite a treat. He is the real “Most Interesting Man in the World” from the Dos Equis commercials and has had many adventures all over the world. Bluestem Freyja will be the first Wirehaired Pointing Griffon/Korthals Griffon registered with the Federacion Canofila Mexicana, the AKC of Mexico.
Tuesday, Gene flew to Texas to be with Colby and I hope to get a picture out of them as well. Charles and I are keeping Gallixe and Ginny will stay in Omaha with Gil and his family starting on Friday. So I have two puppies in my living room that I’m trying to keep from peeing and pooping on my carpet (that I am swearing I will tear out myself this summer, luckily, there is old oak flooring underneath).
Although it was almost 90 degrees here yesterday, today we are back down in the 40s and rain, so it isn’t quite time to put the “H” litter puppies outside yet. They are getting quite fat and their eyes are open. I took them outside yesterday to get some video and pictures of them. Today they got their silly names. Here we are, “H” Litter 2014:
And of course, the weekly YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prwTEPhu3Y8&feature=youtu.be
For those of you who are future “H” litter owners, I would like all of the puppies to go home between their 8 week birthday on Tuesday, May 20th and the end of Memorial Day weekend on Monday, May 26th. I sent an e-mail to that effect. If you have any problems with this timeframe, please let me know immediately. I love being with the puppies and look forward to puppy season every year, but I am already starting to dream about post-puppy adventures with my kids this summer.
This week we’ll be working on getting the pups up and moving around some more, as well as trying them on food mush. As there are only 5 of them, it isn’t as pressing to get them on to solid food as it was with 13. But either way, it will be time to stuff some puppies into an Easter basket or something next weekend, so keep your eyes out for that and check in with you then.
