Times a ticking

Time has almost come.  A few more days and the golden nuggets will be here.  So excited.  The 90 degree weather can go away.  Hula said no thank you to that.  Heres hoping for a normal and safe delivery.

Here we go again

It has been over two years since we have had puppies in the house. Prayers that Hula hangs onto this pregnancy and does well. She is no spring chicken. Though she thinks she is!

Farewell "A" Litter

Today was a day filled with lasts. The last dinner, the last picture, the romp around the dining room table. 8 weeks have flown by. The puppies have grown by leaps and bounds all weighing in well over 10 lbs and a couple reaching 15 pounds (sorry raisers no carrying these chubby wubbies).

With each litter I always think it is going to get easier (NOT), giving them back to begin their future is the next step in the process. Doug and I are excited for what lies ahead of these golden nuggets. They came into this world as 8 tiny reindeer and now are leaving us as future assistance dogs. They are ready. They have experienced multiple surfaces, from hard wood, to beaten down baby gates (yes beaten down by them), carpet, krinkle paper, dog litter, you name it they have felt it. They leave us with solid poop ( ok don't laugh but that is a big deal in the puppy world and it took awhile to get them there). They are sleeping 5 hours straight at night ( a few prefer to sleep in their crate). They have been introduced to collars and leashes, eye contact and the basic manners that if you sit in the whelping box you are the first to get out (Arnie is best at this). The 2010 "A" litter has been visited by close to 100 people, 92 to be exact. Wow that is alot but oh so good. They have had their first photo session and are the perfect models. The 2010 "A" litter is ready.

Doug and I want to thank you for taking the time to watch the puppies on the web cam, for following the blog and being interested in Paws With A Cause. We both know that you all wish them well and will prayer for their success. Success whether it be a Paws Assistance Dog, or whatever they choose to do. You all will be a part of their lives. You have enrich Doug and I with your encouragement and excitment about the puppies.

We both want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. The puppies destiny is yet to be deteremined but we know what ever it holds will be filled with wonderment and love. Tonight can slow down and give us our last moments with the puppies, the last hug, the last puppy kiss, the last clean up of poop and pee (an oh have we done alot of that). The last giggle and the last puppy pile and fighting for our attention oh yeah tonight can slow down. There will never be a last goodbye as these littles one will always be a part of our hearts. Our love and thoughts go out to the raisers that are going to conitnue on with their upbringing. We hope that you fall as madly in love with these guys and girls as we have.

Last but not least I would like to leave you all (for now until placement pictures that is) with the 2010 "A" litter names. Not telling who they are yet but I will give you their names. Welcome to the world of being a Foster Puppy, wear you back pack with pride and do your best, make Doug and I proud of you. Arnie, Atlas, Adell. Alley, Atti, Aggie, Amber, Alpine. Rock on A litter!

Happy Birthday

No not the puppies but Hula. Momma Hula turned 4 today. We didn't do anything special but hang out with her and let her play and sleep to her hearts desire. The puppies threw a little party bash, ok it lasted about two seconds just enough time for me to catch the photos and then well the party hat was off and destroyed in a matter of nano seconds.

Happy Birthday my sweet girl. You are one in a million. 4 years old and still rockin the dog scene!

I am ready for my close up "Mr Overbeek"

Ok not the original line but it fits for what the puppies got to do on Thursday night (which is why my entry was alittle lame last night). Overbeek Photography out of Holland (Michael and Angela) have been so giving and have offered to take pictures of all of the litters that Hula has had. Ok lets give a little back ground. Hula is IN love with Michael from the moment they met it was Love at first sight for her!! Angela and Michael raised Peyton, Hula's first baby! They are very close to our hearts and I can't thank them enough for giving of themselves and their families time. It sure was fun

I thought I would give everyone a sneak peak of one photo that was taken.. Gotta love it. They were ready for their close ups and more.

Tag you're it!

As the puppies get bigger, Hula is playing with them more. She can teach a might fine lesson when the puppies get a little big for their britches. Though in this video there really isn't a correction it sure is cute to tell mom "Tag you're it" and then run like mad!

As some of you are aware the puppies were out of the office (errr their whelping box) today. They spent the day at camp PAWS. So since it is late and we arent home yet we will post pictures tomorrow. We are pooped out.

Oh by the way the slackers will be out of the office again tomorrow. SORRY! See you on Wednesday night after nine!
