This is the puppy barn. . . yep. . . it's purpose is pretty simple - it's our HOME for a good portion of puppy season. While there are plenty of home-like comforts in our puppy barn, it's the sleep we're short on during puppy season! With our newest litter of 13, nights are full of checking on puppies, feeding mom, and positioning puppies so everyone has an opportunity to eat.
And while most of our construction is completed for the puppy barn, there's still a little work to do on a few whelping pens and the wash 'n groom room. I find myself saying, "We're almost there!" just about every day now . . . . lol. And in the early evenings, after all of the main work has been done for the day, a little relaxin' and an episode of The Andy Griffith Show is about as exciting as it gets here. :)
We love what this "Home Away from Home" provides for us and for our puppies - plenty of space for work to encourage puppies with challenges in this home environment. Though some days we are downright exhausted, we feel pretty certain all of this effort to build the puppy barn has been worth it!

And here's the latest on the newest litter. . . They've all been weighed, and marked with nail polish on their back right foot. . . AND a little mark on the tail top for this litter. With this host of puppies in one bunch, we can more easily identify who is who. We like to use nail polish instead of something tied around little puppies' necks to avoid the risk of strangulation. It takes a little more time for us to do this, but we feel a lot better about our puppies' safety.
So there's the latest. . . a beautiful baker's dozen of puppies! Lovely coats in an array of shades! Can't wait to see how they grow! ~ rhonda
