Water Dog Revisited

I found several videos that I hadn't posted. Apparently you need to know how to use a Blackberry better than I do. Indulge me please, these may be out of chronological order. One is of Star discovering the garden hose, Dixie playing keep away and Lucky mopping the floor are the other two.

Dixie Playtime

Its Playtime!

Lucky and floor cleaning

Lucky can run (with) a swiffer. How many puppies do you know that can help clean the floor?

Lucky Fetch!

Pardon my lack of camera skills. Here is video of Lucky working on his retrieving skills. They are so commical - ears flopping, tail going and literally pouncing on the trainer! Its hard for ME to concentrate.

New Kennel

I came out to take a photo of the puppies new kennel and puppy house (note the smaller door). However they got chasing and wrestling and it was more fun to watch them!

1st time in snow.

The 4 legged team went out into snow for the 1st time this morning. They were so surprised! We had to dig a squillion holes in the slush and eat huge mouthfuls of snow. Once they got cold and wet there was a stand off over who got to claim the bench for an umbrella.

The Good and the Bad

How many puppies does it take to load a dishwasher? Just a few weeks ago they were IN the dishwasher. Now they have learned to sit somewhat patiently, even with the fabulous smells from dirty dishes. Lucky looks like he is using laser vision to get a food bowl to fall out...
I noticed our Ninja Girl fussing at a blanket she had buried a chew toy under - didn't think too much of it. Turns out she was after the puppy kit I keep made so buyers have supplies when they take a pup home. It WAS on said blanket, on top of a crate. I'm unsure how she got it down but I suspect the rest of the demo team will let her take the fall...

Big Kids Now!

Here is Winda with Lucky eating from their new table. We put legs on the dish holder to get their food up to chest level. They went to eating twice a day and are packing away 1 1/2 cups of kibble at each meal.

4 Pups to choose from 11/5/2010

The 1st 2 photos are of Winda (Hunter), she is the whitest of our females. She has the mascara and black muzzle many owners look for. I took a side shot to show how she stacks nicely. (She also held still long enough for a 2nd shot...)

The 3rd picture is of Zuri (Beautiful). She tips the scale at 20 pounds. Zuri is light yellow, almost beige and has the exact mannerisms of her mother. She seems to be the leader of the pack today. They sort of take turns right now.

Next we see Mpita (Traveler) in stalking mode. Our little black Ninja has a strong prey drive. Here she was about to jump on her sister!

The guy with the silver collar is Sudi (Luck). Lucky is our lone boy. He is a really easy puppy. Lucky is content to let the girls wrestle and fight over a toy. Then when they aren't looking he will dart in, snitch the toy, and hide it in a kennel. There just may be a life lesson to be learned from Lucky!

North Dakota Trip

Take a look at Walter! Walter was our white male puppy. Here he is on his first official hunting trip! What do you suppose is going through his head?

North Dakota seems to agree with Walter and his buddies!
