Puppy Party and After

Lowri - We had the puppy party yesterday.  Ms. Cathy came down and looked at all of my babies.  There were a bunch of people.  They pet on me and my babies.  It was great.  There was even food!  I didn't get much of the food (TM was watching), but I did get lots of scritches.

Kevin - I kept my eyes on all of my babies.  There were a LOT of people touching them.  Even Ms. Cathy noticed how I was keeping watch over them.  I was very, very good.  I only barked a couple of times.  TM said I was a good boy.

Here I am keeping watch.

Lowri - Today, my babies, the ones that didn't go to their new homes, got to be real dogs.  We went out and herded ducks!  My babies were awesome!  I was so proud of them.

Stacked Puppy Photos

Lowri - MC came up and took a bunch of photos of my babies - including Kevin and Fable.  She took 999 photos!  Seriously!!  It was the first time my babies were on a stacking box.  They were all fabulous.

Here are some of TM's favorites.

I got to go HERDING!

Lowri - I got to go HERDING!  TM and I worked with ducks first and then I got to herd sheep.  TM told me how good I was - a lot.  I did nice, wide outruns.  I stopped when TM told me to.  I put the sheep in the round pen and moved them through the chute.  I was brilliant.  Just ask me!

Kevin - I cut my pad.  It isn't bad, but I am limping a little bit.  TM didn't let me go herding.  I didn't get to do much of anything.  I consoled myself by spending the evening on TM's lap.

Lowri - My babies spent their first night locked in crates.  They did really well.  TM took them out to potty at midnight and then got up at 6:30 to let them out again.  I have noticed that they make a LOT of noise.  TM and PR agree with me.  TM keeps saying "One more week, one more week."  But everyone agrees that my babies are VERY cute.

Flying Saucer

Lowri - TM bought a saucer for my babies to play in.  I think it is a flying saucer, but TM says it is a snow saucer.  I think it has a better chance of flying in our kitchen than it has of being on snow in the kitchen!

The babies test drove it last night and really liked it.  I got to try it out this afternoon.  While it isn't quite as comfortable as a hammock, it is quite nice.

Kevin - We are back at the farm.  I get to go herding tomorrow!!!  TM took a picture of my babies eating some chicken necks.  I wish she would take a picture of ME eating chicken necks.  Of course, that would require her feeding me chicken necks <sigh>

I am liking this saucer.

Shots and a Snow Saucer

Lowri - TM bought my babies a snow saucer.  They get to play with it in the kitchen.  TM says she got it as a wobble board rather than for playing on snow.  She certainly hopes there is NEVER snow in her kitchen!

My babies also got their first shots tonight.  I was very proud of them.  Not much of a whimper from any of them.

Kevin - Not even a whimper from me either.  I got my 1st year booster.  I was very brave.  I wanted to set an example for my children.

Here is a video of them on the snow saucer.

Here are a couple of pictures too:

Romp in the Kitchen

Lowri - It was so cold tonight, TM didn't have the heart to put the puppies outside.  She puppy-proofed the kitchen and let the good times roll.

Kevin - I love having my babies here.  I love playing with them.  I did have to rescue my toys as the babies were playing with them pretty roughly.  After all, they are MY toys.

Here is the video, then TM posted some pictures, because my babies are just so darn cute!

While there are only seven puppies visible, there are eight.  One of the reds is hidden underneath the dog bed.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Lowri - TM has been really busy.  She says there is too much to do and not enough time to get it all done in.  Put the puppies out, clean up after them, feed them, put them in their pen, work, put the puppies out, feed them, video them, put them back in their pen, work, work, work, put the puppies out, clean the pen, feed them, catch two loose puppies and return them to the side yard, catch the four puppies that escaped when the two were brought back, snuggle the big dogs, put the puppies out, replenish the bowl of kibble, put the puppies back, clean the kitchen, snuggle Kevin, put us out, bring us in, crate Kevin (finally!), go to bed where I can snuggle with her all by myself.

Kevin - I am a movie star!  TM took a movie of me and my kids.  Hmmm, what should we call it?  Nine is Enough?  Kev plus Nine?  The Dirty Nine?  Those don't have the right ring.  I will think on it.  Here is the video...

Kevin Has More Letters

Kevin - I have MORE letters!  TM and I (and Lowri) went to Georgia for a herding trial.  Lowri and I had to wait all day - both days - before I got to go work.  But I got to work TWICE.  I was entered in both HT and PT.  I was the good dog!

TM <snort>

Kevin - Well, I was the pretty good dog <G>.  I qualified in both classes on both days.  Pending AKC agreeing with TM, my name is now CH Bluefox Elyan Mind Games, HT PT.  Officially, we will just use the PT, but this first time it is fun to see ALL the letters!

Lowri - I got to go for vacation.  I slept with TM (and Kevin) and just got to relax.  Being a mother of nine is hard work!

TM saw pictures of the babies that MC posted.  They are MUD puppies!  What a MESS!  We will go pick them up in the morning.

Herding Trials

Lowri - We are on our way to some herding trials.  I wonder what I am going to get to herd.  I am really looking forward to it!

TM - Wa, wa, wa. wah.

Lowri - WHAT???  I am NOT going to get to herd?  That is so wrong!  Just because I have been busy with puppies.  I am sure I could have led TM on a merry chase.  Oh, maybe that is why I am not going to herd.  Boo!!!

Kevin - I will get to herd TWICE each day.  I will herd sheep for the Herding Tested class and for the Pre-trial class.  I get to do that on Saturday and again on Sunday.

Lowri - TM just told me that a couple of the families that were getting my puppies have had to back away.  They have life going on and don't think it is responsible to get a puppy right now.  TM says we will have three of the little devils that will need homes.  We just don't know which three yet.

Kevin - I think I have to go get a job!

MC is taking card of the puppies this weekend.  She is getting some really cute pictures of my babies.

Garth is trying to play with Story.

Puppy videos

Lowri - I am so very glad I can hang with TM again.  I snooze with her in the recliner.  Kevin thinks he should sit with her, but he is wrong.  It is MY place.

Kevin - I have a very important job with TM and the puppies.  I go under the ramp and the puppy that is exploring there comes out so TM can get a hold of her.  Almost every time TM takes the puppies out, I get to help her corral them.  She says she couldn't do it with out me.

Tomorrow we are going to drive to Georgia for the herding trials.  Mama Cheryl is going to take care of the puppies for the weekend.  That will make TM's live so much easier!

Here are some videos of the puppies.

First is Carrie, Kellie and Reba - the redheads!

Second is Blake, Sara and Taylor:

Third is Garth, Tuli and Dierks:
