The Oscar x Gracie Puppies: Week Eight and Nine and Heading to Their New Homes


Our time with these puppies has been absolutely fabulous. They are all such wonderful and precious individuals and we are grateful for the new families that will be welcoming them into their hearts and their homes.  These last two weeks with the pups are spend going over our notes, evaluating their different traits. Temperament, structure and breed traits are evaluated and with that information and with what I know about the homes waiting for these puppies, I make the matches between them and their families.  It's a responsibility that I don't take lightly as I want the very best for each of these puppies and for the families that I have come to know and care for as well.

This week the puppies went to the Luyendyk farm for an adventure. They did so well and had an incredibly fun time. They were very good on the long car ride there and back.  They were also wonderful followers when we took a walk down into the field.  I'm so glad the weather cooperated because several days this week were quite wet and rainy but we had perfect weather for this exciting excursion.

The puppies have been up on the grooming table several times and we do this so that we can better assess their structure and so that they can get used to being up high on a table. This helps to prepare them for their visit to the vet and it also begins to develop a positive association with the grooming table.

I wish all of these puppies and their families the very best and I look forward to hearing about all of their new adventures in their new kingdoms. It is my pleasure to introduce the Princes and Princesses with their new names, from top left to bottom right:
