I’ve received a few updated pictures of the “C” litter of Mae and Sam’s that just went home at the beginning of the month.  I can’t believe how fast they are growing!!

I’ve been receiving some unusual updates from the owner of “Whiskey” out in Nevada, who is two years old and from our “A” litter between Sam and Sue.  “Whiskey” is a serious hunting dog and the current star of the “Puppies” page on this site.  I will let the e-mails from Deborah tell the story, this one is dated February 17, 2012:

Just wanted to let you know that Whiskey has a very special gift.... He can smell/sense tumors... I have no ideal how, but he knew that our golden retriever had a tumor (we didn't understand his behavior at the time, but understood it after he died) but now he has successfully predicted another tumor in our King Charles Spaniel.... It is truly amazing! He is so incredibly caring and sensitive! I had a episode of low blood pressure a whole ago and passed out... Whiskey wouldn't leave my side for about an hour before it and stayed with me until I felt better...he knows when any of us are sick and he stays with us until we feel better..... Whiskey continues to surpass any of Pete's friend's dogs that Pete hunts with, no matter how old or experienced, and he is the most remarkable family dog.... We could be more thankful and blessed that we made Whiskey part of our family!! Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful pup you created!!! We are forever grateful!!!! Deborah

This is the most recent update I’ve received on his powers is just dated recently, on May 23, 2012:

Whiskey has proven his extra special talent again.... Our daughter Andi loves to raise chickens (which we have been doing for 3 years now)...A couple months ago, she picked out 5 chicks at the local feed store.... One of the chickens seemed to us to be slightly retarded (even for a chicken!) but Andi still loves it... We raised them in our tack room in our barn until last week when they were old enough to go outside in the chicken pens.... We now have a total of 12 chickens and Whiskey has never paid any attention to them (it took a while to train him not to bother the chickens, but he finally gave in and accepted that) until now.... He only pays attention to the one chicken that seems retarded.... He goes to the pen and whines and tries to talk to only that one chicken....He's not aggressive, he seems to be very concerned about it... Every morning, he darts over there to check on that one chicken.... He is sooo awesome! He never ceases to amaze me with his loving, caring personality.... Just thought I would share that with you..

Puppy Watch… Again!!

Sue should be whelping in the next week or two, but she is still up and around and doing well.  Time to set up the whelping box again and get ready to start the process all over!  Of course, the kids are excited for more puppies!
