Home at Last!

Where does the time go!  The puppies are 7 weeks old, and boy are they BUSY!
We ventured off to the Finnish Lapphund Nationals last weekend in Regina, as you know Gossip our Lappy had a litter in October and her puppies were all in the show!  I was lucky to get to show Jameson, the boy puppy owned by Mike & Laura MacDonald in Michigan.   What a great little boy, he picked up WD the first day out, and second day he took WD, BOW,  BOB & BPIB over several lovely specials in the booster sunday!  I think he's at 6 points, with that being his first day in the ring in Canada!  His litter mates, Thyme & Rowdy also did amazingly well!  Thyme picked up a WB at the National & a  Best Puppy In Group (and now has several) Rowdy also picked up WD BOW & Best Puppy at the National and Monday a Best Puppy in Group!
What a amazing weekend!  Thanks to Gloria Beaudin for deciding who Gossip should be bred to, and managing the litter so well, while i had my own at home with Lexi.

So onto the Diva & Rush babies.   I took them to work on Friday, had a visit with lots of employee's and customers, they got to spend some time outside with the noise of a busy industrial shop, and planes, trucks and sandblasting going on on top of that.   Then off to the Vets for shots, and check ups after work.  Everyone had their shots and hearts, eyes all look great!     Next morning (Saturday) Gloria & Pat came over to help with the Temperment tests, and getting the puppy fix!  Many visitors of friends, new puppy parents, and then Dale and i did some pictures to end the day!   

  Here are the boys!

And all the girls!

So were ready to leave tomorrow morning.   Jackson, Frankie & Rush are ready for the big flight into London Ontario.  Our Good friend Brenda Campbell will pick us up at the airport, a quick trip to her house to pack and were off to Ancaster!

Ill post these pics of the babies from the weekend.  Wow how fast they have changed.   We are busy busy, eating mainly puppy food now.   Mom goes in twice a day to feed them and keep up her motherly activities.. playing with them and teaching them some manners.  :)
