It was a whirlwind of a weekend...puppy pickup started on Thursday and ended Sunday afternoon. It's almost an empty nest..Ms Orange is still with us.  It was great meeting the families in person - seeing the joy in their faces as they were all makes sense in that moment why I am a breeder.  It is a process I love from start to finish....I'm often asked if its' hard to see the puppies go.  Yes, in simple terms.  However, I am a realist and know that at 8 weeks the puppies need to start their forever life.  Seeing them go to good homes and knowing they will be loved does make it easier.  Jayda was a bit puzzled by the process of puppies leaving...think she is happy she still has one puppy.  I should be able to put some weight on Jayda - she is 62 pounds...another 5-8 pounds will look good on her.  I am also looking for a caregiver home for Jayda - for more information on what that entails - send me an email and I'd be happy to explain.
