Catching up!

Hi everyone!  Today I dropped my boys off at school and came home to spend the entire day NOT running around doing errands or volunteering!  First day in a LONG time I haven't had a million things to do outside of my house :) Our Easter egg hunt was amazing!  We had around 120 egg hunters join us!  The weather was perfect and a good time was had by all!  My sister and I stocked up on after Easter clearance items and we are ready to do it again next year!

 Macy and Ginny aren't showing yet but we should start being able to tell around May 6th or so!  
We are getting excited!

Here are some pics our puppy families have been sending me, thank you for all the updates!

This made me tear up and feel so blessed these kiddos get to love on one of our pups!

Hi all!  I am hopeful and excited to announce that we are expecting!  We have changed our timing to make sure that we don't have a winter litter again :)  The pups and humans have so much more fun in the summer :)  We will hopefully be welcoming a litter from Macy on May 20th and (I know I'm crazy) a litter from Ginny on May 27th!  I am excited and a little nervous for the added craziness but will be putting a lot of the daily chores in my kids capable hands (great learning experience!).  

With that said I had to share these pics from yesterday of my family :)  Every year my sister and I put on an Easter egg hunt at my house.  We have around 100 kids (friends and family) that come to hunt around 4000 eggs in the sage brush, rocks and juniper trees!  It is SO much fun!

A family from Portland is coming over tonight to play with Buddy and possibly take him home.  I will update the blog when I know more.  

Calisee and I took the big girls and Buddy out today for a little walk.  Calisee got the tummy bug and we have been on the couch yesterday and today.  She is starting to feel better so I thought we all could use some fresh air.  Buddy was so excited to go and play!


 Keeping up with the big girls!

We are overly ready for spring and summer!

Buddy is ready for his new furever home!

Buddy turned 13 weeks old last Sunday.  He is such a fun puppy and is learning his manners well.  
He is ready for his new furever home. 

Here is a little background on Buddy:

Normally our pups go home at 8 weeks.  As for Buddy he got to stay with us a little longer.  
When he was a couple weeks old he ended up with pink eye from my son. YES....humans can give dogs pink eye!  This has been a learning experience for us :(   We treated buddy with eye drops from the vet and the infection went away quickly but ultimately we had to have staples put in his eye lids to keep them from rolling in on the bottom.  Because Buddy was so young when he got the infection his eye lids swelled and ended up rolling in, when they rolled in, his eye lashes rubbed his eye and more swelling occurred.  The stitches were placed a little over 3 weeks ago and we thought they would dissolve in 2-3 weeks.  I spoke with our vet again (we have seen our vet almost 2 times a week for around 2 months) and she said that if he is happy and healthy and his eyes look good it will take longer for the stitches to dissolve.  We do not want to remove the stitches, they need to dissolve on their own and could take another 3 weeks. The vet said this should NOT discourage us from finding a home for him.  

So now we are looking for a sweet family for Buddy to go and become a wonderful part of!

Please call me with any questions you may have 541-420-6936

Here are some pics of Buddy playing at the barn with the kids this past weekend.
