Just thought you'd like to know how your boy is doing. We were at the vet Wednesday night for his final shots, so he'll be ready to rumble with the big dogs pretty soon! In exactly one month, he gained just over 12 pounds - so he is a hefty 36.6 pounds now. I told the vet that that would be the last time I'm lifting him up on the table. From now on, they can come down to him!
I noticed last night that, even though he is only about half her height, his feet are the same size as Deline's - but at least he doesn't trip over them any more. His coat is coming in very coarse and dark and his markings are just beautiful.
He is truly a sweetheart, and my little cuddle-bug. Kodiak would never tolerate cuddling, and Deline puts up with it, but with her it's like cuddling coiled steel. Every night I lie down for a while on Tikhaia's huge bed, and he comes running. He immediately snuggles up against me, and we cuddle until he gets hot (which admittedly isn't very long). Then we both go off to our separate beds. (He doesn't sleep on the big bed - that's just his cuddling place. He prefers to curl up on the bare floor in assorted places.)
He has quite the sense of humour. Most dogs go under the dinner table to beg - he goes under there to steal napkins from people's laps. He is a terrible thief. In fact - this weekend, I have to find his stash, because a few things have gone missing and I'd like them back.
He has the best digestion and bowels of any dog I've ever had. Even after his Grandma sneaked him a big bowl of ice cream, (grrr) there wasn't the slightest upset...but...he is working very hard on convincing me that housebreaking is a dumb idea.
He and Deline have become very close, and she has pretty much given up any pretense of being the boss of him. If she shows her teeth at him now, he licks them. They wrestle and play and chase constantly. My house sounds like it contains a herd of wildebeest. It often looks like that, too.
He went to a meeting with his daddy (!) because "the ladies wanted to see him". I'm not sure what he did, exactly, but one of the ladies suggested we change his name to "Chainsaw."
He is psychic! I set my alarm for 4:40 am (sob) and he invariably starts to howl at about 4:39. It must be paranormal...there's no clock that he can see, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't have a wristwatch (although one of the things I'm missing is a wristwatch, so maybe....). Of course, this gets Deline going, so we have had some pretty spectacular early morning howls!
I hope Trace is doing well - I was delighted to see you have him up on your web site. Please keep in touch!
Our lives have been focused this past year on our newest puppy, dogs and attending dog shows- 2008 should be a busy puppy year if all goes as planned.
Christy and Chuck Mclean stopped in to update on their baby boy!
Well, the BIG boy Juneau is a delight, sweet, HUGE (60 lbs at 7 months), and a terror to any dog walking down the hall! He thinks he's tough, but our dainty little Siberian beats him every time (I think he lets her!). Except for the 2:00am "cuddles" (he misses me?), he has turned out to be another love in my life that I didn't even know I needed! Now I couldn't spend a day without him!
I am so glad Chuck found your web site, and that we were able to meet you, your dogs, and take home our beautiful baby. Thank you for trusting us with this special pup-a-dup!
Rain is the APPLE of Lesley-Ann's eye!!!!!!
I am the proud owner of Rain. Rain is one of Tawny and Breeze's most recent babies....you can see her with her sister if you click on Puppy pics...sooooooo cute. Tawny is awesome and I would recommend that everyone get a puppy/dog from her. Rain is a treat and I'm so glad I chose you as a breeder even if we live a few thousand km's away from each other. I would do it again in a heart beat. She is doing great and when I get a day off I'll be sending more pics.
Baffin goes to his new home in Ottawa- Looks like he fits right in....
The hometown crowd went wild. Not only did the Ottawa Senators win,
but Baffin was an instananeous hit. It was trouble to get everyone to
bed at 12:30 am so that I could quiet him down. He was overheated in the
crate inside the house, as we knew he would be, however, as soon as I
let him sleep on the kitchen floor, he was fine. We all slept fast.
He'll (OK we'll) adapt and find new ways to keep him in a crate at
He was very talkative this morning and really didn't appreciate the
fact that playtime couldn't go on forever. Jocelyn will spend the day
with him, so all is well.
Thanks again for everything, I saw you go back to see him one last
time.....it's tough to let them go....
Good luck with the show and we'll send some photo's when we get a
