How does one year
go running by so fast?

It seems like it was just yesterday
that our Mom miscounted
the number of puppies at our house.

Remember how we had
to paint their toenails
to tell them apart.

We just loved seeing
those puppy piles
and sharing them with you.

We held them
close to our hearts


they grew up so fast.

Snickers aka Becky Bluebonnet
led the pack
in opening their eyes.

Soon after that
they all got new collars -
blue for boys,
pink for girls.

Most of the time,
they were so sweet and loving
with each other.

They quickly learned that when they heard
"where's my puppy - wuppies"
that food was on the way.

And as soon as they got
their tummies full,
they fell asleep-
sometimes in their food bowl - hehehe!!

They loved having
Aunt Lilly jump in
for a visit -
she was so patient with them,
even when they
pulled on her beard.

And pretty soon
they outgrew their basket.

And before long,
they were outgrowing
their puppy box

And too soon,
they left us

to go to their forever homes.

But what wonderful homes they have!!
And what fantastic Peeps!!
Here are some of their
"befores and afters".

Angus was the most popular
suggested name for a boy puppy.

But we absolutely
love the name he has now.
This is the puppy that
you named Finlay -

He's a big boy now -
Murphy Rushlow -
not only does he have his
own motorcycle and driver -
he also has his own Facebook page.

Our little Henry,
we knew from the moment
his Mother put him in our Mom's hand
that he was destined to stay
on Rocky Creek Farm.

We just had a hard time
picking out a name for
Ruairi Coinneach of Rocky Creek Farm -
aka "the handsome red king" -
doesn't he look just like his Father
in this picture?

The smallest of the puppies -
by 2/10 of an ounce -
our little
Snazzi Jazzi

Miss Finleigh McBee of Signy's Cottage -
and she is sporing her signature bow!

This little gal
was named Ciera
by our Irish friends,
Clive and Murray.

You probably remember
that her name is now
Lady Victoria - Tori for short.
She, too, is enjoying
the Winter snows.

And Miss Snickers
who is now
"the hostess with the mostess"
and is celebrating
on her blog.

For a chance to win some spectacular prizes
go by and wish a
"Happy Birthday"
Miss Becky Bluebonnet.

Happy Birthday
to one and all -
it has been a fun year
and we are already looking forward
to seeing what year number two
will bring for these special puppies
and their peeps.

We also want to thank all of the puppy parents
for the updated pictures that they have
shared with us.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi
and their staff

A year ago ? Surely some mistake. You must mean yesterday. Anyway, they all look like bundles of fun.

Oh yes, how time flies! Don't you just miss all of them! We have a litter of 5 last year too and now at just over 8 months, they are bigger than me, in size.
