SantaPaws Came Early!!!!

Our Gralochs Blueberry Tart gave birth yesterday morning to 5 healthy pups, with a nice variety of colours and sexes. They are sired by Am/Cdn Apple Acres Expedition ROM/C. LinkWe've waited a while to do this breeding, and couldn't be happier with the outcome. Now the anxiety of watching them grow starts!

Merry Christmas Everyone! Hope SantaPaws is as good to you as he's been to us.

Tyme's Girl 7.5wks - Cocoa

Meet Cocoa, growing up here. She is from our Ch Shelamo Sugar Rush x Ch Shelamo Tyme Descends litter. She was named at just 11 days old by the girl we had here on the day, 'take a kid to work '. It's stuck!

Puppies - Bite Inhibition

In one of my previous posts I said I'd try and get pics of puppies play fighting and learning bite inhibition. They all start to learn this as early as 2.5 wks of age, before the puppy teeth come in.

Can we do rearrange this together?

Here's the Bliss litter around 4 wks of age. They've decided the way I made their bed needed rearranging. Yes, they thought this play time was fun, but they were also learning how much pressure was needed & physical force to move this item, which didn't yipe back at them.

Maybe I should train them to make our bed!
I got you~ no you don't, I got you!

Two of Tyme's girls in a play fight. At 6+ wks their teeth are fully erupted and their jaws are getting stronger.
Now I've got you .... nope, I got you!
Sheesh, all this learning is tiring.

Winter Grad Class ~ Lakeside

I teach dog obedience at 2 locations for the City of Ottawa. The 1st class graduated on Dec 2 at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Gardens. It was a Level 2/3 advanced class. I had a great time teaching this class as was small, and diverse enough that we were able to do all kinds of work. With the weather being nice, some daylight still available, along with a well lit area, for the 1st 5 classes we worked outside for 1/2 hr in a very distracted environment. I think everyone accomplished more than they had expected, with some AH HA moments. The students helped each other work through some of their 'kinks' too, which showed me they'd learned how to put small steps of achievements together.

back row ~ Java & Schnapps
front row - Shadow, GPS-Y, Harley & Taco

Aren't long downs great for photo opps!

As a side note, the 19th Annual Winter Garden Party will be held on February 26, 2012.
Great fun for the kids.

Merry Christmas To All

Tyme Pups ~ 5 wks 4 days

I'm tardy by 2 days in getting these pics up, but it just goes to show you how fast pups start to mature in their abilities. Tuesday was their 1st day of trying out running ... well it really wasn't running it was a hop, hop type of movement.

See the girl on the right ... she's just a hopping to beat the band and thinks this new found motion is so NEAT!
Their problem ... the back end doesn't always go where the front end wants to, especially when stopping or slowing down is required.
their 1st experience with chewies
and those orange things you see, they're Goldfish, the human kind ~ love them as treats
also the tops off the the brown paper rolls make good play toys ~ they're tough
play toys now have to be larger and more durable
humm ... I can now not only carry these sticks, but lucky me ~ I can squeeze them in half!
(sorry Linda ~ it was the day for some broken ones ~ gotta bring out the large ones)
and my day starts and ends this way
