We had a wonderful day saturday giving 6 puppies to 6 very happy new families! I think there may have even been some happy tears! I feel blessed that we have such great families giving our puppies their forever homes. I have heard all great things about the puppies and how well they are adjusting and learning things so quickly. Here are some of the pictures and comments I have recieved so far:
Red Boy's mom Stephanie sent a family picture (previous post) she also wrote the other day to say that they have named him Benham and that he hasn't had any accidents in the house and practically sleeps all night. She said that he is SO smart too and that they love him!
Below is Risley, purple collared girl. Her mom wrote to say that "she loves her kennel, slept pretty much the whole night and is getting the hang of potty training! We are having such fun with her :) Thanks for giving her a happy first 2 months :) "
The next two pictures below are of Buddy, the blonde male. He is getting to know his big brother Bogey and they are having fun together.
The next two pictures are of Lady Snow, our little blonde girl. She has a new sibling, Poppy, and they are getting along great! Lady's mom has a granddaughter that loves to spend time at her house (even more so now I think). Lady's mom wrote: "Madison, 9 yrs old, held her almost constantly for 24 hours. Lady whined a lot the first night but last night only in the beginning of being put in her sleeping crate. She's so smart and so adorable. She and my Papillion can both be in the big "playpen" area. Next I think I'll get gates, 2, so the dogs can be in the kitchen when I'm in there.
Anyway, all going well."
The next two pictures below are of Turner. Turner's mom wrote: "Turner is great, he cracks us up because he thinks he is a big dog. He walks on a leash and is pretty much potty trained."
Below is Kaia and her new human brother taking a nap together (Shannon's pink collared girl).
Kaia's mom wrote that "she is doing well playing with Luna our lab and the boys.
We started a fire and she passed out immediately:) "
It snowed at our house the night before heading over the mountain.
When we got home Ginny enjoyed her first big play in the snow!
It didn't slow her down one bit!
Below is Leo with her mom and sister.
Unfortunatley this family had a severe allergic reaction to little Leo and is unable to keep her.
Their hearts are broken as they had anticipated this day for so long.
I told the family I will find little Leo a wonderful home, I am currently waiting to hear back from a family that I think would be a wonderful fit.
I send my prayers to Dianne, Grace and family that their hearts heal.

Above is Lady being escorted in a bucket!
Above and below is little Rosie who went to her forever home today.
Luke and Dylan loving on Rosie before she leaves.
My niece Brooklyn saying "see puppies" sort of :)
Nikki (giving kisses above), my boys, my husband and I will miss Rosie.
We know she is going to bring alot of joy to her new boys and family.
Her new family has 2 boys ages 4 and 7. She should fit in great!
When we had our first litter I thought it would be a good experience for my kids. It has grown into so much than that! I love animals and I LOVE golden retrievers, they are so sweet, smart, dependable, and 100% trustworthy. Through our experiences with our puppies I have gained alot of knowledge and look forward to learning more. One of my favorite parts (besides getting to play and watch the cutest pups EVER) is meeting new people. I enjoy all of our new families and love that my pups bring joy, love and happiness into great families homes.
Today I recieved an email from Ashley in Portland, purple collar blonde girls new mom. Ashley gave me a link to her blog, her recent post about getting ready for the puppy put a huge smile on my face. Thank you for sharing Ashley!

The puppies found rocks to chew on yesterday!
So much fun!!!
Ginny exploring out back.
I have tried to get the rest of the pups to follow us so they don't eat my bulbs but they don't seem to want to leave the front yard that they know. :(
Above is Turner out for a run (yesterday)
Rosie is in front, Shannon's girl in back.
Lady loves playing with Macy (Above)
Above is Turner.
He went to his new home today. We will miss you Turner but we are so exicted to see you with all your new toys and to hear that all is well from your new parents!
This is the hardest part for me (except for hoping labor goes well) but the pictures I get from the new families make it all worth while :)
Thank you Don and Liz for the pics and update!
