Puppy Visitors

Today the puppies had some smaller visitors and they all had a great time together. The girls remarked that this litter was very friendly and didn't bite as much as our litter last fall :)

Miss Madison

I stopped by to visit with Madison, a 9 month old puppy from our last litter (Hickory Tavern Dior On Madison, Claire x Obie). She is a wild and silly girl who is really growing nicely. Next month she'll be going to the Premier dog shows with us in Kalamazoo, MI. It will be fun to show our puppy!

Barbet Claire and Her Grandchildren

Claire loves her new role as doting Grandma to the puppies. Of course Solene is never far away, but she seems very pleased to share the puppy duties with Claire. Claire is in heaven, spending a lot of time laying with the babies, grooming them, and gently playing with them. So sweet!

Dinner Time!

Here are the pups having their dinner tonight. Usually they stand in a semi-orderly fashion around the bowl, but tonight two of them are laying in the bowl while eating. They're making it hard on the rest of the crowd. Silly pups!

Nessa's Latest Best In Show

Last Friday evening, Nessa and I traveled to Ohio for the inaugural United Black Russian Terrier Club's All-Breed shows. There's something special about night shows, and Nessa was extra showy! She performed beautifully, and won a Best In Show and a Reserve Best In Show! The large size of the shows meant that we didn't get home until almost 3:00 am but it was definitely worth it!

Messy Food Faces

Today we went out right after the puppies had lunch so they are a little messy with food. This is the first time that they were all out together, and it was so beautiful and warm. Lots of fun today!!
