The pups are in their new homes. Now I can concentrate on my PUPPIES! Yes I have kept two; I couldn't help myself. Little Itzy is so tiny and I just could not trust anyone else with her! I know it is not an ideal situation to keep two pups but at least I realize that and will work hard with both.
The first pup to go yesterday was Cutie Pie. I really thought for awhile that Cutie Pie was going to be the puppy that I kept. I do think you need to pick a puppy both with your head and with your heart. My head kept telling me to pick her but my heart wasn't agreeing. She was such a cutie but we just did not click together.
I think Karen is happy with her! Cutie Pie is now named "Yazoo" and her registered name is OBay Itz Fantaztic
Pork Chop was just something special. She was so friendly and had the waggiest tail. Unfortunately she had a small jaw problem with an uneven bite. This meant right from the start that I could not keep her with any intention to breed on from her. I tried really hard not to get attached to her even though I thought she had just the best working temperament and such a sweet personality.
Pork Chop has now gone into another sheltie home and will be living with Marilyn. (ARGHH I forgot to get a photo of Marilyn and Pork chop together! Hopefully she will send me one) Her call name has yet to be decided but her registered name will be
OBay Itz A Kinda Magic
So, yes, that leaves two! Chubsy and Itzy are mine. Or at least I think Itzy is mine; Dennis seems to think she is his. When she needs to go out; I ask him to take "HIS" puppy out!
Itzy Or Itz will keep her call name and her registered name is
OBay Itz Itzy Bitzy. She is so darn cute and fun. She likes to leap into the air with 4 feet off the ground.
Chubsy is now known as "Zaz" (a little bit of Zen and a litte bit of Tazz" aka "Zazzer a litte bit of Tazzer". Her registered name is
OBay Itz Got Pizzazz. She is an interesting personality; tough but with a little bit of sensitivity. She is not everyone's friend; but she has eyes for me and that is what I like. I cannot wait to start training her and seeing what we can do together.
Me and my girls.
After Pork Chop left today we took down the puppy pen and put away some of the many thousand toys. I did a little cleaning and generally tidied up. I took a deep breath and now thoughts turn to housebreaking, socializing and training!
