Still under construction . . . . (we've been working at this construction project for the past nine months . . . ) the puppy barn has a new addition - with a new non-skid floor surface and more room! Of course, being an artist, there are new colors too! While our Golden girls don't mind the sights and sounds of our continued work (walls and ceilings to finish - electrical, trim, internet, and some other small comforts yet to add), they are really loving the enlarged whelping areas.
We added an additional 50% space for each of our moms and growing puppies! Our unique and personally designed whelping areas convert into growing areas for our young pups. (More photos to come soon.) And by 4-6 weeks (depending on our Iowa weather and the season), pups get an additional 120' ft to romp and play, directly outside their puppy door(s). Though this outdoor space is available anytime puppies desire (weather permitted), we also take our puppies out for new experiences as we work with them on the grounds here at Snitker Goldens. So I guess you could say we are in a constant state of updating, looking for ways to improve what we do for your puppies. It truly is our heart to create a home environment with a myriad of stimulating experiences for the puppies to grow and develop for their future families. More on this in a later post . . . .
And a special Thank you! to Hannah, our special puppy handler, who commissioned an artist to make this new plaque for our puppy barn, which now hangs right above the puppy scale and counter where we do all our weights, trim toe nails, and just overall puppy-business. For several puppy seasons, Hannah read this hardly legible verse, scrawled by me on a piece of plain white paper and taped to this wall. It was a reminder to me to keep going, even on days I would feel discouraged or exhausted from all of the work that goes on in this almost sacred space. Surely, God has used this puppy barn to challenge and grow each of us and receive blessings, too. So thank you, Hannah, for this sweet gift and reminder how God provides what we need at just the right time! ~ rhonda
