The S’s are Making Their Entrance

Sunday July 27th was the first due date from her first breeding to Gavin and right on schedule starting at 7:30 am. Three boys followed by a girl…..many more to come.

The first girl pup made an interesting debut. I have never seen or heard anything like it. There was a big pop and she came shooting out… like she was shot from a cannon. I actually was startled and jumped. Caitlin was here and also witnessed it, good someone else saw it as it was so amazing!

Final count 6 boys and 2 girls.

Does this look familiar???  The boys aren’t the only ones that carry big sticks.

The DNA has been sent in to AKC . I cannot wait to find out who the Daddy is.  Day after they were born I picked pink-camo and blue-flag to be Gavin kids, they have his head shape.  Kinda thinking Diva might be Gavin too. Lime-green and pink-purple I am thinking Vegas.  The rest I have no guess on.

First trip outside! They were so thrilled they wanted to sleep.
The two boys are on the left and wide awake, the stock coat to the far left looks just like Gavin to me, next to him is the dark long-coat male with the purple color, the next 5 are the girls:

Libby’s Herding instinct test

Libby was entered in the Rochester Collie Club Herding trial Friday and earned her 1st Q. She looks like she enjoyed it. It was funny that the judge had to go get her after I had her in a sit stay and we walked to the end of the line. Libby looked at her like-hey, I was told to sit here.

The notes from the judge said;

“lovely dog! Tends to want to stop movement by going to heads-what a GSD was meant to do!
