Carmine went to his forever home in Scottsdale with his new family of 7 kids and Carlos and Meg G.


After a lot of back and forth, I decided to sell her to Gail for $1600; pulled her from the ASCA trial; she will be picked up at Laura's place by Gail's friend.  Bye Pepper; love mom.


Monte went to his forever home today with Karen and her husband in Tucson.  He'll have a happy life.  They promised to come visit in the future.

New Owners

Pups had lots of visitors yesterday.  First, Jeff and his lovely family came to visit.  They even went to the Petsmart and bought me a bag of food(saved me a trip to Tucson).  Put down a deposit on their BMF Sheila.  Then, Erin and Andrew came from Scottsdale to pick out their pup(It was hard with 12 pups running around.).  They stayed for two hours and we all had a delightful visit.  They emailed me to let me know it was the blue male; lucky guy.  Wormed all the pups on their 6 week birthday; 2/11/13.  Took some photos of Stella for Nancy and Bruce.  This girl is getting some legs already although they do not show it in this photo.

Pups get visitors

Pups got a visit from The Tosts.  It was overcast all day and ten drops of rain.  Nancy wants the bigger BMF.  The other one goes to Jeff and his family who also live in Tucson.  Nancy brought me a dozen eggs; so sweet.


Got straw; moved 3 Tacori pups to kennels by barn.  Move Peppers 12 pups to the greenhouse.  Watch Phoenix Open.


Two new lambs last night from one of the older ewes.  Speckled colors.


Phil Edwards called today about Carmine.  Phil is a runner and lives in Tucson.  He sounds like a perfect home for Carmine.  Hope it works out(this is the second call from him on the pup).


Monique went home with ShanAnne Saturday.  Other BTF went home to Wadell with her young 4Her Sunday.  Today we had a lamb born.  Cold; wet; and expecting snow.


Puppies had 2 visitors yesterday.  They played on the floor with Sandy and she took their pics.  Cheryl is getting her new girl in a few weeks.  I am so happy to have these two great women in my life. 

2 new lambs

Two new lambs born to a Barb ewe.  It was cold today; only 25 when I went out to feed.  It has warmed nicely.  Cleaned puppy pen and now everyone is set.  They are growing like weeds.  Sandy and Cheryl are coming to visit; won't they be surprised?
