Well, it's been a few weeks since the last puppy left our home.  It is quiet...maybe too quiet.  If our mating of Duke to Jazz was successful, then we will have a litter of pups to tend to around December 1.  We are very happy that Duke was able to achieve 2 natural ties with Jazz...something has not done in the past.  We gave him 1 year and a half to mature and it looks like that was the right thing to do.  This combination should produce outstanding pups and I predict they will be on the larger side of the scale.  Duke's zest for life and clownlike personality, combined with Jazz's sweetness and gentleness should produce some extra special pups.  

This weekend is Thanksgiving in Canada and we have a lot to be thankful for..I hope you are able to enjoy some great food and fellowship this weekend!
