Time for an Update

I have been a bad blogger and very slow to update on a regular basis!  Funny how having 5 dogs, two of them puppies, can keep you so busy.  I don't have a yard, so we do ALOT of walking with the dogs.  I have had a lot of fun with my girls, Millie and Paris, but I am also ready to just go back to 4 dogs, and only one of them a puppy.

They are both doing very well with their training.  Millie still has some house manners issues that we have been working on since she came to me, but her work and behavior in public is fantastic!  Paris is such a sweet pup who settles down quickly when we go out in public.  She is hyper still in the house, but will ignore food and doesn't ever try to get on furniture.

Tomorrow our entire club is going to a baseball game with all of the pups (Parsons, Millie, Jackson, Paris, and Elvis).

Here are some pictures from weekend adventures over the last month.

Sterling hanging out with his new 'dad' and sis Deso.  (Sterling is in the middle).
Marley, my "Wasatch Mountain dog".  He blends in so well with the rocks that at times it can be hard to pick him out.  Even when he is running through the brush I have a hard time seeing him. 

Marley LOVES water.  When he can be in the water with one of us it is even better!
Millie showing her patriotic side on the fourth of July.  Calender worthy maybe?

Our club did a recent outing at an outdoor market.  Here Millie is, less than thrilled at being outside when it is HOT!  She was the only black dog and so I tried to keep her in the shade as much as possible.
cc'd Pup Foxboro watches all the going-ons.
Bracken enjoying one of his last outings before heading off for formal training.  Unfortunately he was medical cc'd.  He may go to Dogs for Diabetics or the Hearing Dog program.
Giant pup Jackson hangs out by a big water bowl.
And then passes out in it!
All my pups patiently wait for their food.  And yes, that is drool all over Millie.
And finally...two weeks ago I drove  4 hours to pick up a mamma dog and her 5 pups who were running out of time in a rural shelter.  Here is one of her pups enjoying life at their foster home.

That little pup is so cute (as are all of your dogs!). I'm so glad that you were able to help out the mom and her litter.

I can already see Millie's photo on the July page of the next calendar! No wonder you haven't been blogging--you've been busy! I don't know how you manage with so many dogs!

Sarah, regarding shirts, I don't think I have your email address. Please email me at, and we can talk shirts!

Awww, it sounds like that baseball game will be a great outing for your club! Our club was planning on going to one, and then the field got rained out! =P Paris and Millie are absolutely adorable and it sounds like they are doing well! =D

Sounds like you're having fun with the dogs, although 5 really is a lot! We recently had 5 in the house for a week, and it's just a little too much :)

Do you know why Bracken was medically cc'd?

Becky said...

Yes - busy ... five dogs two of them puppies says it all! Fun to read your update - what sweet dogs.

I will try and get some better pictures of Presto! I've been distracted because I ended up puppysitting another pup for a few days on top of Presto... so I feel your pain and am constantly walking dogs and rotating dogs in crates! At least the extra pup is 15 months old and much easier than the little squirt!

Oh, and Marley's camouflage is amazing! All the pups are looking great too!

Ellie's mom said...

Great pictures, especially of Marley on the rocks. What camouflage!
I lived in Park City a few years ago, but because of jobs we left.
