A FOND FAREWELL ON GREEN BANDANA DAY

Last year,
the day before our first pup
left us,
we had our first annual
Rocky Creek Farm puppy show.

This year we decided
to forgo it in light of the fact
that the Porties
were celebrating
their
Annual Bandana Day.


Since the color of the year 2011
is green, we decided to give the pups
a chance to play a bit -
so they got their first chance to dig
in the grass and the dirt -
you might notice
as you go through the pictures
that there are a few dirty noses
and mouths full of green grass.

We bid them a fond farewell
as they start their departures tomorrow.

And now we introduce them
with their new names
and their destinations.



(#1 - Jazzi)
Miss Jazzi
might just keep her name.
She will be moving to Washington, DC
and her people really like the name she has.
She will tell them if she wants it changed.



(#2 - Lynzi)
Stirling
will be going to live
in
Eastern Virginia.


(#3 - Bonni)
Sophie Scott
will be leaving us
to go live in Vermont.


(#4 - Jock)
Todd
will be going to live
in
Northern Virginia
and
he will share a blog.


(#5 - Fergus)
Liam
(named in honor of Sweet William)
will be living
in
Central Virginia.


(#6 - Mackie)
McIntyre
will be living
in
Maryland
and he will have a
black Scottie brother
named McGee.


(#7 - Kilts)
Parker will be going to live
in Northern Virginia.


(#8 - Guthrie)
Arlo will be going to live
in North Carolina -
he will have a
black Scottie sister
named Abby.


Ivy
will be staying
on
Rocky Creek Farm
but
she wants to award
all of the puppies
with the title of
"Best in Show".


We'll miss you all.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh, Ruairi, Ivy
and
Their Peeps

Oh, how we so did not want this time to come, but isn't it wonderful that all the Sweet Babes have homes waiting for them. And knowing your Mom, every one of those homes is fabulous. We will miss them terribly, but we look forward to lots of fun adventures from Ivy.

Have a good weekend.

Oh well maybe Ivy can stir up enough trouble for 8??? :)

They all look so adorable. How nice that most of them will be relatively nearby. You can have a reunion sometime. What fun that would be.

Fairly Well you lads and lassies!
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May your forever homes be blessed.

Lovely Post. They all have been and we have enjoyed every posting about them. The pups look great in their farewell bandanas and the names are great (specially like 'Fergus') but why Sophie's peeps not keeping Bonni!!!! LOL. Only joking...lol.

My life is going to be quiet without them...but less work too!

Why are you keeping little Ivy or have I missed the reason being only part time and all?

We are sending special thaughts to you this week, cos our hooman's eyes leaked each and every time a puppy left us (even though they going to good homes).

scottishdogs said...

Hi There me again
Just wanted to say thank you for explaining about Ivy. How stoopid does our hooman feel - course she not a Scottie....

Hope all the farewells are happy and fond.

Hi Lynn and Pups,
I love Ivy!! Have I said that before?? We all are going to miss the Puppies so very much. They all looked so cute!!
Thank you Lynn for your kind words about me losing Bambi. I miss her so much. I didn't want her to die. I was in shock for days. I know she was tired of her old body. She was ready to go. It is just so hard on me!!
Thank-you Lynn.
xx, Fern

scottiechronicles said...

Oh me. Time goes by so quickly doesn't it? Those are the kew-test little pups ever. Hope their new homes are full of love and laughter. (Wonder if any of them will be near where I live in big 'ole River City??)

That Ivy. What a pistol!

Thanks for sharing their lives with us.

ArrOOOOOOO! Stuart

They all look so adorable in their green bandanas.

Canyon Girl said...

I will miss reading about them here, but I know that Todd is going to Kim's at just the right time. He will add so much joy to her and the older dog's lives. Well, to her hubby's life as well, I should add.

Oskar said...

What a bittersweet time for you. The pups look perfect as always!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Lynn, I am catching up on your sweet family here....I have just been swamped here with stuff....

I have so enjoyed watching your precious little Wheaten family grow and will miss them so. They are just the most adorable bunch. Todd is going to enjoy all of the attention! For sure.

Ivy is too cute. I can only imagine that Java is somewhere there coaxing her on how to do the things he did.

much love to you and yours....
xxoo
Becky

PS: I would love to have one of your babes someday!!!
