The Green Family and Bailey

Becky is my husband’s office manager, the force that keeps us all sane. I KNOW Bailey is in good hands!

Hobbs, Jack and Uno are all scheduled to depart for their new lives this weekend.

Still available, are Robin, Batman, and Belle.

Precious, beautiful babies!

Risk and Grandpuppies

Grandma Risk. (She is the sire’s mother.) This is the most wonderful dog … she quite protective of our home and family, and yet so easy going with all other dogs. You would think these were HER puppies. She lets them crawl all over her, sleep with her, but draws the line at sharing her food with them, lol. Sweet, sweet girl. If you look VERY closely in the upper left corner you will see one puppy by a crate … that’s where Mama Molly is … puppies are completely weaned.

Mornings are a lot of fun around here … I tiptoe in to turn on the coffee maker, hopefully without disturbing any puppy dreams. Then, when it is ready, I pour a cup and open the back door … and puppies and I go forth to greet the new day! These photos were taken first thing today, in the morning cool. Enjoy!

If it were not for the tail, Uno would be just one more very handsome Aussie puppy!

The Bossies … July 8th

Jack

Jack is the smallest of the male puppies. He’s going to have heavy ticking on his front legs. Jack is one of the most people oriented puppies in a people oriented litter!

Jack

Splish

Splish is a GIRL! She is very mellow, smart, people loving and calm … although when her siblings jump her she comes up fighting! She is the fluffiest puppy in the litter.

Hobbs

Hobbs is the mellowest of the males. He had his stitches removed today … by my daughter-in-law, a human medical doctor! He was sweetly oblivious to the entire process. This is one SWEET boy.

Hobbs

Belle

Belle is a very social, people oriented, smart puppy. We have been litter training the puppies, and Belle ALWAYS goes to the litter box!

Belle

Batman and Splish

I took an absolutely awesome photo of Robin tonight, too, but it appears to have disappeared. I will feature her tomorrow, along with Bailey!

Oops! We Have Puppies!

The "Bossies"

INFO: A lovely female Border Collie on the 19th day of her season, and a beautiful young Australian Shepherd just over a year old plus ten minutes together equals an oops litter of nine beautiful “Bossies”.

This litter was certainly not intended, but it’s pretty hard not to enjoy puppies this beautiful. We removed front dewclaws but left tails on. Puppies are receiving ENS, the normal “Super Puppy” program here at Apropos of stimulation and socialization, and will be temperament tested. I am every bit as concerned about the quality of homes they go to as I would be if this were a planned litter. If you think you might be interested in one of these special puppies, email me for a questionnaire. Email addy is bvw1958@gmail.com. They were born Thursday June 7 and Friday June 8 and are two weeks old to the day in these photos!
