Then There Were Two (Photo Added)

March 2, 2015

This weekend the baybeez were 10-1/2 weeks old.  We had a terrible (9.5″) snowstorm Friday going into Saturday.  I thought we were all organized to do puppy-pick-ups on Sunday because of the weather, but Rory’s people could not wait.  The drove up from Southern New Mexico notwithstanding the wretched weather.  The only bad thing about their early arrival is that we had scheduled the last puppy photo shoot for Sunday morning before people appeared.  So, no Rory (“Oliver”) photos in this batch.  Rory will be “Elyan Talking It Over”

Thank you, thank you to Pam Day and Arlene Bartels who helped with the photo shoot.  Arlene sacrificed her fingers to the cause.  Sabin is officially Sherlock (“Elyan Signs Along The Way”), and has moved to Mesilla Park.  What a sweet puppy he is.  He gets to go to work with his people.  Lacey has gone home with Pam.  We will co-own her.  She is inheriting a Cardigan brother and sister.  Her handling class will begin in a couple of weeks.  Pam is retired (though very busy) and Lacey was born to be someone’s sidekick.  Lacey is “Elyan White Lace and Promises.”

As soon as the east coast weather mellows a bit, The Mighty Quinn will catch a plane.  I am really going to miss that fat little face.  He will be “Elyan Before The Rising Sun.”  I can’s wait to see his glorious redness reflecting the sunshine.

Ultra (“Elyan A Kiss For Luck”) will be selecting a home before too long.  She needs to be in a performance home — athletic, energetic, agile, tuned in — she will make someone a wonderful partner for herding or agility or obedience or tracking — or all of those events.

    So adorable! Love, love, love Lacey! So nice to see our beautiful Tuli again. I agree that Quinn has a fantastic face! Ultra! What can I say! She’s fantastic as well! Sherlock was being naughty!

  2. Terry says:

    Oh, those puppy faces! All gorgeous! Glad they are all getting settled in; I’m sure you will miss them. I still love Sherlock, wild and wooly, and all. Please tell his new people how lucky I think they are.

    Hi Terry! Sherlock is happy and rowdy here with us in southern NM. He is very chatty and gives us a running commentary on everything. His older brother Cardi seems to be weathering the new addition with calm patience. The cats are not pleased. Sherlock is a doll and I am thrilled that he is so cuddly at this point in his life!
