The weather hasn't been great this weekend, but there was sun during the week so the pups had their first outdoor experience. The boys sure did enjoy the sunshine and even started eating some grass.
Today we decided it was time for the pups to be introduced to the older dogs. We have done a little time with one adult at a time, but this was the first time they got to explore the entire living room and kitchen on their own with all the dogs out and running about. Of course the adults were all great as they always have been, but we do have a few new additions since our last litter so always best to use caution.
We found out that one boy (Chachi) really likes shoes! I guess we will be doing the puppy shuffle for the next little while when they are out.
On a sadder note, I have been waiting to measure Frankie again until he hit one year old. At 6 months he was right at the top of the standard at 12 1/2" tall and he was sticking pretty close to that for awhile. Unfortunately he hit another growth spurt in the last couple of months and now that he has finished growing, he measures oversize at 13 1/4". While some breeders might consider keeping him as a stud dog, I do not like to use anything in my breeding program that doesn't conform to the standard and therefore cannot hit the show ring. So now Frankie is available to a loving pet home. Frankie is a wonderful red boy with the most amazing loving personality. He is incredibly athletic and graceful and would make a wonderful agility or rally prospect. He has boundless energy and loves attention.
