    DeAnn took this great photo of the Chase-Shadow at the fire pit.  Once you see it, you know why the beautiful Scout has the hots for him.

    And here come Chase and Scout.  He did catch up with her.  Hopefully Janet will be whelping Chase/Scout puppies (those would be Scouchas) around December 17th.

  2. Congratulations, Nikki

    At six months and two days old, Chase/Magic daughter Wellshire Absolut Magic (Nikki) owned by Carolyn Tompkins and Paula Weller, was Reserve Winners Bitch to a 5-point major (in Boise).  I’d say that’s a splendid beginning to a show career.  Dad sends his congratulations from the rolling hills of Tennessee.

  3. Leidy – No News & The Litter Theme

    October 19, 2010 by myeye

    Leidy wants me to quit my day job and just watch her — I guess.  She gobbled up a big breakfast and is lying around asking me to stop staring at her.  She still wants to sprawl in the dirt outside, and, as a result, is filthy.  I need to give her a bath so her babies’ first meal is not grits.  Today is the 63rd day from ovulation based on the progesterone readings.  So — do I go to the office (45 minutes away) and check her on the puppy cam or do I sit and stare at her until she bites me for my rudeness?

    Leidy - day 63 - after bathI took a dust bath — why this?

    About the puppy cam:  It is up and running.  I can access it.  In the next day or so, it will be accessible to those of you that want to check in on the brood.  Use the email link on the sidebar and I will send you the user name and password — with this caveat.  Check in on the puppies and then PLEASE log out.  PLEASE do not minimize the picture — which leaves it live and running.  The puppy cam uses a tremendous amount of bandwidth.  If the link is left open for hours at a time, at some point, my ISP will become annoyed and shut me off.  I would be alone in the wilderness without internet access, and I would be unhappy.  You would not be able to watch the babies grow.

    I’m looking forward to puppies — it certainly beats my day job.

    Now, they are going to need names.  I have been hoping to use this theme and think we’ll have enough babies to make it worth while.  The theme is names of newspapers.  So, Times Picayune, Daily Planet, Wall Street Journal, Rocky Mountain News, Daily Mirror — etc.  I always appreciate suggestions (and if there is a call name the seems to fall out of the formal name, let me know that as well).  An example, Clark or Kent or Lois or Lane or Jimmy for Daily Planet.

    NOTE:  Carolyn has put up the link for the puppycam.  It is on the side bar under the puppy owner application link.
