so quiet and lonely here without the babies.
have to break the puppy pen down and store it back in the barn, wash all of the toys and bedding, organize the whelping equipment and store it all upstairs to be ready for the next litter. then i get to re-oil my floors, move my bed back to be centered between the windows, put the bedside tables back on either side of the bed, bring the bench back from the great room, . . . .
but, in the meantime, i have been really busy. one of the key things i’ve done since LILA/MULAN left, now that gracie is over 2 years old, was take her to dr. powell in connecticut to have her hips x-rayed. the unofficial reading is that her hips are good to excellent!! today i have to order the two dna tests and make an appointment with the veterinary ophthalmologist in deerfield ma for her first annual eye examination . . . then if gracie doesn’t start her heat before all of the official results are in and they all are normal . . . more puppies in the spring!!!! if not then more molly babies next winter. i hope that the next litter is as sweet and good as molly and george’s litter was while they were here. just so much fun! i miss them all, but so glad they have moved on to such great homes. xxx’s and ooo’s to all of them.
be sure to follow bodhi, dewey, emily, lila and poppy’s pages to watch them grow up. the fun continues . . . .
