Leaving Home - Saying Goodbye!
Actually, we have never had puppies at Christmastime. We usually prefer to have them in the spring when they can go outside. But dogs only come into season twice a year so we decided to breed April to Hardy and have winter puppies. It turned out to be a lot of fun, having them right off the kitchen so we could play with them all the time and they could see what is going on. Being right next to the laundry room, they should be able to do their own laundry by now!
CAMBRIA AND MARLA HARPER - Cleveland, Ohio
So, last week first Marla Harper came and picked up her little girl. Marla was referred to us by our long time friend in Keeshonden, Carol Cash. Marla got a beautiful show girl, who will be named Foxfair Cambria. Call name not yet determined. We had a very nice visit with Marla and her sister, also a dog lover par excelance. It is always comforting to have puppies go to families that understand dogs. Marla's sister has Pomeranians so her tolerance for canine behavior has to be very high!
Marla and Cambria will be going to puppy class at Cleveland All Breed Training.
KUMA AND DAWN AND SCOTT NOVICK - Seven Hills, Ohio
Next to leave was our big boy, who will be called Kuma by his new owners, Dawn and Scott Novick. Kuma means "bear" in Japanese. Kuma joins his half brother, bred by Debbie Hodges who is also a Hardy son - his name is Jake. Jake is not quite sure what is going on at his house. He was under the impression he was an only dog. But he watches the puppy carefully and Dawn reports that when the cat hissed at the puppy, Jake stepped in to protect him. Kuma likes lots of attention and will be going to puppy class at Cleveland All Breed.
SKIPPER AND MARY AND ALLAN MAC VICAR - Nova Scotia, Canada
An update on our Nova Scotia boy. It seems that Mary and Allan Mac Vicar ran into a snow storm on their way home. They had to get off the highway in Pennsylvania and stay overnight. Then their plane couldn't land in Halifax and they had to be bused a couple of hours home. But, they report that, Skipper, was a trooper. Never cried on the plane, just stuck his head out of the Sherpa bag to be petted then went right back to sleep. No grass at the bus station or the airport - but paper training came in handy!. They put papers down in the bathroom and then off they went. Skipper is adjusting well to being a Canadian and it seems that his "Aunt Glady" will be having a get together to introduce him to the other Canadian Keeshonden and their families.
