We know it was a surprise to most of you
when we announced that Carrleigh
had a beautiful litter of puppies.

But you have been there with us
through it all.

The (yawn!) 4:00 am feedings


You even named the puppies for us.
Just a recap -
Hamish is now Sir Bentley
Angus is now Bailey
Dugan is still Dugan
Finlay is now Murphy
Henry is now Ruairi
Scarlet is still Scarlet
Jazzi is now Finleigh
Ciera is now Tori
Snickers is now Becky

For all of the daily activities -
bed changes,
painting their toenails.....

And too soon,
the time came for them to leave us
and go to their forever, loving homes.
We so look forward to seeing emails
and pictures from them.

And now we have sent
our little Ruairi
off to Puppy Kindergarten.
We hope he doesn't get his leash
tangled up in his kilt!!
Soon he will be the best educated dog
on the place and maybe he will teach us
a thing or two.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

What a wonderful montage of puppies from birth to proud Christening (so cute!) and all the way to puppy classes! You should be so furry proud of this beautiful litter of pups - we know Carrleigh is! Gorgeous!

How fast time flies... Just read your "remembering Java Bean" post and the tears that were bottled up yesterday were finally shed. We are indeed spiritual beings, having an earthly experience.

Your pals,

Petey, Mica and their weepy Mom

Sue said...

Have you really sent him off or are you attending class with him?

TwoSpecialWires said...

We've got some serious catching up to do. Do they teach dogs to read in puppy kindergarten? We're realizing we can't depend on Moma these days to read TO us. Let alone paw out comments to you, our friends. We hope you know we think about you all all the time and are looking forward to this summer! Hang in there with us, okay? We miss you!

Love, two of your wirey friends,
The very dependent Jake and Fergi

Puppies!! They grew up!! How fast that went! Puppy kindergarten sounds like fun!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

ScrapsofMe said...

Oh! I loved Puppy K. I loved it so much, I got to repeat it! I just loved talking to all the other puppies and not staying in my seat and playing bitey-face when I was supposed to sit/stay. It was one long snack time to me. I hope Ruairi has as much fun as I did! Well, except for the timeout part.



Lilo, The Great Rock Eater said...

The puppies grew up so fast!!! Can't wait to see updates of their new adventures!!



Mack and Mia said...

Growing up stinks! Our momma is in a funk about growing up...and a little bit of denial...tee-hee.

Everyone looks fabulous and we hope they are doing well. Can't wait to hear more about how they are all doing.

Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia

Oh that picture of the Dogfathers has brought a such a big lump to my throat.

Abigail said...

Hey soul sister, we are working on a show for Roanoke!!

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Wow! They grow up so fast. Funny, because it seemed like FOREVER between the time Mom told me Abby was born and the time she was ready to be picked up. We loved the pictures - and hopefully updates from the wee ones as they start on their new adventures!

*kissey face*

It has been an amazing experience for us to watch them grow too. We enjoyed every post and wish it didn't have to end. We hope you will share a few pictures you get as pupdates.

Oh my, Kindergarten already?
They grow up too quickly.
We can't wait to see the cool things he learns at school, and Buddy says he will help Ruairi with his homework.

Yes, time flies by way too fast.... The babies are all grown up, but still oh so cute!! We rarely see the unique cream/white colouring Scotties, and yet all of the babies are white/cream coloured!

Love nibbles,
