Growing Up Fast

It is hard to believe that these little babies are seven weeks old tomorrow! It makes me so sad to think that in just over a week I have to let them go, I have grown so attached to them Crying face Each one has their own personality and they are such little cuddle bugs but to know they are going to great new families does give me some peace of mind. I know they are going to have great lives and I will get to see at least one of them on occasion and maybe even a couple of them. I do hope their new families will stay in contact with pictures and updates.

Today was a very big day for them, one of my friends from church stopped by to see them and she just loved them. Later Grandpa Dave and Grandma Michelle (sires parents) over at Dusty Rose Chesapeakes, came over to play with them and brought another duck but they were all played out by then so not much action. They also had their HomeAgain microchips inserted today, which I really was not looking forward to, it really doesn’t hurt them but just the thoughts of my babies having a needle put in them  Sad smileIt went very well and for the most part they didn’t make a sound…well at least most of them.



Meet Albert

I talk a lot about Riva and the babies but I haven’t said much about the sire of the puppies so without further ado I would like to introduce

This was a 5 point major win for Albert

You can see why we fell in love with this very handsome boy but it isn’t just all looks for Albert he has the most wonderful temperament, just a big ole teddy bear. He can be a little bit of a goof ball sometimes but we like that. He is absolutely stunning to watch work in the field, he really moves! You can see more of Albert over on Dusty Rose Chesapeakes blog. If you take a look at male puppy #2 here you can see how much he looks like his daddy Smile
