With a welcome break in the stormy weather it was time to start leash training Special's puppies, and to refresh their collar and leash training. They have been vet examined twice, have had their vaccinations updated and microchips recorded and will soon be on their way to their forever homes.
They have already visited the busy shopping area, where they sat on a blanket while we enjoyed coffee at an outdoor cafe. Of course they were the centre of attraction and reveled in the admiration and pats that came their way! We were very proud of the way they observed the traffic and big trucks roaring past, with no sign of fear. Good little bubs! Their early audio and visual socialising has set them up beautifully and all is on schedule.
Here are a few pictures of the babies during their leash training, with Becky and six year old Gem, the second youngest of the Kids Team.
When I received an invitation to what I was told was to be the last SoCal Malibu Romp after twelve successive years, I just had to make the quick decision to fly to California to have a last meeting with my 'grandbabies' some of them ten and twelve years old, and their lovely families! As always it was a fabulous event hosted by Sharon and Philip Steele and Princess Hana Doodle who is now over ten years old! I was hoping to catch up with another of my grandbabies, ten year old Djinn Djinn, and his mother Barara Eden, but Barbara and hubby John were on location and out of the country.
There would have been at least two hundred people there and as many Doodles, so it was a doodle feast in the very essence of the word.
Well, here we are again! I can hardly believe that it is so long since we've blogged, life has been so busy though fun! Puppy time is always my favourite time, they are so irresistible and I love getting to know their new families, especially when they share their adventures with us. We introduced the puppies the other day to the puzzle treat dispenser and it was a hoot watching them work out how to slide the little covers back and forth with their noses and paws, to get to the treats inside under the lids of the compartments. I hope you enjoy the video!
