We went to the vet yesterday and today, split into two groups.  Here are the new weights:

1. Alpha Male:  13 lbs. 4 oz.

2. Male 2.2:  12 lbs. 12 oz.

3. Male 3:  12 lbs. 11 1/2 oz.

4.Male 2.1:  12 lbs. 5 1/2 oz.

5.Alpha Female:  12 lbs. 4 1/2 oz.

6.Female 2.1: 11 lbs. 1 1/2 oz.

7.Female 2.2:  10 lbs. 11 oz.

The sun came out after a rainy visit to the vet, so we took a walk out in the forest.  These walk shots are difficult because I have Sue on a leash in one hand and the camera in the other.  I was completely shocked when I downloaded the pictures and found one of Alpha Female doing a perfect point.  That was complete luck.

A funny story from yesterday.  I turned the pups loose from the kennel and they went barreling down into the forest, as usual.  When I finished cleaning up the kennel, I went out and called for them and they weren’t coming back like they normally do (they are getting pretty good at responding to the whistle and also the command “kennel”).  I saw a big puppy hubbub over on the other side of the property line, on a very muddy slope, in a big patch of nettles.  When I made it over there, I discovered that my neighbor had a failed meat smoking experiment and had thrown a whole pork shoulder into the forest (he throws bones out for my dogs all of the time, so I wasn’t worried about poison or anything).  The pups had “hunted up” the pork shoulder and were all gnawing it.  By the time I got the pork away from them (I gave it to Sam) and the pups back into the kennel, I was covered in mud and nettle stings!

New homes, here we come!
