Siblings, Sheep, Grandma Inca and Dad

January 16, 2011

A lazy afternoon here

Close quarters for Holmes and Nola**  Note crate door is open

Inca does like her granddaughter (if Holmes is not around)

Meanwhile, Dad’s at work — and it is cold

Hold the sheep to Susan so she can check them out

They can look — just better not move

** If DeAnn’s vet saw this photo, she’d be sure I was a puppy mill

    Just so you guys know… the whole vet clinic isn’t anti-dog breeding but they are a teaching clinic so get lots of new residents with their own agendas. I don’t want everyone to think we’re all backwards. I might send them the photo of Nola and Holmes crammed into that tiny crate…puppy mill fodder for sure. LOL

  2. I don’t think you can technically be a puppymill when your only intact bitch is under 6 months………………..



  3. Or when the only stud you’ve used is a CHIC dog…….


  4. Cheryl says:

    Personally, I’ve never heard of a puppy mill with the stud dog out herding sheep and doing the job the breed was intended to do. Nor one with just one little puppy bitch. Be sorta a pitiful little mill, wouldn’t it?

    Hummm, don’t think I’ve heard of one that actually does health checks either! Nah, don’t think you could qualify even if you TRIED!

  5. Susan says:

    Dang! Look at the reach and drive on that dog! Oh yeah, and that level topline. Also look how far off the dog is from the sheep…my kind of dog…
