Yes, it is that time again: the time for remembrance and retrospection. It has been a mixed year of losses and gains for our friends; of births and of deaths. While we may have fared better than most, 2010 is still not a year that I will miss.
The losses have included:
Zipper in January
Porter in March
Fearna in July
Digger in July
Marcy-Bunny in August
Scout in August
Dancer in October
Cookie in October
Klark in October
In addition, tears for:
Megan’s Sidney in October,
Marianne’s Derri this month,
Kathy’s Elbee and Bobbie’s Merlin this week,
And for all of the other losses this year.
But then, there were puppies.
Pilot x Ell puppies in March
Chase x Magic puppies in April
Huxley x Clem puppies in October
Chase x Leidy puppies in October
Chase x Scout puppies in December
And most especially:
Wally x Hannah puppies here at home the end of May
I have always considered 11 to be my lucky number. So here is to a lucky and prosperous Twenty-Eleven to all of us.
Of course you may have seen them on Penni’s blog, but I want to show them off too.
Chase x Magic puppies born 04/12/10.
Bred by Eric & Paula Weller, Edmonds, WA.
Puppy count: 5 boys, 3 girls. One red boy, it looks like one dark brindle, the rest bright red brindles.
In other news, there are more Swedish Vallhund puppies. Hank x Nikki, born on Sunday 04/11/10. Two girls: 1 natural bob, 1 tail, and a natural bob-tailed boy.
I’m still waiting for pictures of them.
And in still more news, I’ve been alerted to a couple of purebred Pembroke rescues in Roseburg. They are at Saving Grace Animal Shelter. Both are girls: one is 5 years old, the other is 7. Click on each picture to go to her information.
