Arrival Story: Bella came to us from a breeder in VA 2 1/2 years ago. I had been looking for a blue female but I saw her and fell in love instantly. I don't regret it for one minute!
Bio: She has been the best dog we have ever owned. She is very sweet and dainty and very intelligent. She has been evaluated and approved for therapy dog training; we are now just waiting for the training to begin. She has also had obedience and agility training. She gave birth to 12 beautiful puppies last year. Unfortunately they didn't all make it, but those that did, are all in loving homes and doing very well.
Well, the house feels lonely now. There is only one puppy left, Apollo. He will be leaving on Monday and joining his new family in Boise, ID. He will have 2 other dogs to play with and 4 kids. Hades went to live with a nice and active young lady in VA. He will be living close to his sister Artemis and they are planning play dates. Poseidon went to Atlanta, GA as a gift for a nice young man from his girlfriend. My human and the girlfriend had planned it as a surprise and boy, was he surprised. Poseidon's new name is Barrett and he is now here on Dogster along with his new brother, Lawson. Finally, little Aphrodite was adopted by a nice family with two boys, 15 and 11. They live near Philadelphia so she is the closest of all my babies. It looks like we will be moving next summer so I don't think I will get to have puppies next year. While they were exhausting and I was not myself from the moment I got pregnant until just recently, I do hope to do it again. Stay tuned...
More the half my babies are gone. After Ares flew to Germany, Athena went to live with a nice lady in NH, Artemis went to live near her dad's in Washington, DC and Zeus went to live in NJ. Today my little girl Hera went with a nice couple to live in Brooklyn. Only Poseidon, Hades and Apollo are left for sale and Aphrodite will be put up for adoption because of her medical issues. I do hope the boys find homes soon because as they get bigger, they get into more serious scuffles with each other. They are good boys and will be great friends to someone. I am sad but it is definitely time for them to go. Hopefully the next time I write, they will all be in their forever homes. Bye for now...
Today is a sad day for me - my first pup left for his new home. He is on a airplane on his way to Germany where he will join his new family. They have two young boys and a female Thai Ridgeback to keep him busy. I know he will be happy there but we will all miss him. He was the biggest boy in the litter and has the most beautiful needle ridge on his back. His coat is nice and short and a rich cocoa black color. In two days, one of my littlest girls will be going home with her new mom to NH. Then on Saturday, my only two blue puppies will be leaving as well. The boy will be going Hoboken, NJ and the girl will be going to Washington DC. As sad as I am that my little birds are flying from our nest, it is time. The nine of them together certainly could get into some mischief, usually instigated by my NJ bound boy. There are a few people that are interested in the remaining pups but haven't made a commitment yet. The only one I am worried about is my littlest girl. We call her Peanut because she is so small. She reminds us of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree. She just needs someone special to care for her and we know she will flourish. You can see pictures of the puppies at www. sundancetrd.com.
