Okay, so I can't count!

So it appears that I'm okay with animals but not with numbers.  The actual due date for Indy is January 22, 2012.  Here's a few pictures of Indy/Merlin pups from a previous litter.

OH YAY! Finally some news!

Hello Everyone!

I'm very happy to say that there is finally something worth writing about!  (I'm not one of those who let's people know I went shopping at whatchamacallit and bought a thingamajig!)  Merlin & Indy have been bred and we are expecting puppies on January the 8th!!  YAY!! 

This has been a long time coming.  Merlin and Isis were bred in the early fall.  It looked like Isis was going to give us a litter of puppies.  Unfortunately, she had false pregnancy.  There were many disappointed people!  It is an honour to be able to say that all the people who had put a deposit on that litter, were willing to wait for a future litter.  To me that is the ultimate compliment.  I appreciate the trust in me and the confidence in my dogs. I do not take that compliment lightly.  I will do everything I can to provide you with a K9 partner for life.

Having said that, one of the families have opted to wait until next fall for their new puppy.  That will give one lucky person an opportunity to place a deposit and get onto the waiting list.  I will take only a total of six deposits but I will continue to take names up to a maximum of ten people.  The last four will receive a pup in order of the date I received their questionnaire.  So if you've been thinking about getting an "Angel".  Nows the time to speak up! 

I must tell you however, that I am not at home.  I've had to go to a family emergency in the US and I won't be home until it is time to leave for holidays that has been booked for 2 years!  Please be patient if you don't hear from me right away.  But also don't be afraid to send me multiple emails to get my attention when I get back.  Email is usually the best way to reach me.  I spend a lot of time at home but most of that time I'm outside with the dogs. 

And don't you worry about the dogs.  My assistant trainer and her spouse will be staying on the farm to take care of all the animals.  They will be well cared for.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful fall.  I'm very pleased that the snow has, for the most part, stayed away and allowed us to prepare for the winter.  There's always too much to do when you have animals! 

Stay safe, stay warm, and I'll talk to you soon.
