Final regular post

John and Rosie are a bit depressed with the empty kennel until they realized that this meant some one-on-one for Rosie and her man.

This is the final regular posting. It's been quite a ride since Michelle started posting the results of taking Rosie's temperature on July 29. The first post was "Rosie is about to have puppies!" We've ended with Sam, Rumsey, Tucker, Murphy, Sophie, Sophia Rose, Josie, Abby and Maeve all in wonderful homes.

We will continue to post as we get updates from our nine families but I expect those will be every couple of weeks at best. So those of you who have been on this blog every day (or even multiple times a day, I hear) you won't find much new. But all the postings are still up so you can browse through for your favorites anytime.

Thanks to everyone who has joined us on this adventure. We plan to do it again in the spring so check on us periodically for the occasional new postings and for news on a second litter.

Here are links to some highlight postings for those of you who may have missed the early ones and for those of you that want a trip down memory lane.

We're all ready!

Our last two families

Our last two puppies, Maeve and Abby, are now with their families.

First to be picked up was Maeve. She had a nice nap on her trip home and is happily settled with Elizabeth and Matt.

The last to leave the nest is Abby, our fancy collar/orange toenail little girl. She was very excited to join Challi, baby Logan, Ariel, Jared and Alora last evening. Ariel and Alora are at least as excited as Abby! Logan slept through the whole thing!

Final play time with Rosie

Our time with puppies is fast coming to a close. We got these two clips of Rosie playing with the two that were still with us on Saturday. Maeve (love that Irish name!), formerly known as the little pink collar girl, and fancy collar girl will be with their new families by the time I post again.

Sophia Rose Heads to Her New Home

Brittany, Amy, Amanda and Rebecca have now taken Sophia Rose home. The report from this morning was an excellent first night and it sounds like a soon-to-be-spoiled puppy! The girls are all smiles with little Sophie in this first pic. (It looks like Ron is now outnumbered 5 to 1!)

In the other pics, Sophie is sporting her new collar as she comfortable settles in.

Pink Collar Girl Has A Home!

Our little pink collar girl has a family to join! She turned on the cuteness for Elizabeth and Matt when they visited and the match was made. She and her two sisters have a couple more days together before heading to their new homes over the weekend.

A Couple of Doodle Videos

Just three little girl doodles here now. It is certainly better than TV to sit and watch them play. It's hard to get the funniest antics on video. We'll keep trying. In the meantime, here are a couple of videos that give you an idea of what they look like now. The first video is just a short one of little fancy collar (chased away by little red collar). By the way, little red collar is Sophia Rose. The second is Sophia Rose with Rosie. She is joined first by fancy collar, then by Tucker.

Tucker goes to his home!

Tucker (red collar little boy), our famous singer, got a nice bath before Laurie and Jenna showed up to take him to his new home. Tucker was quite pleased to see his family again and should be happily adjusting by now.

More Pink Girl

Any of you that are looking for a doodle, please don't think this little girl is a "leftover." You can ask any of the other families that chose a puppy and they will tell you how much alike they all are. Our pink girl is now beginning to show the doodle curls and has a lot of spice. She knows right away when we are picking them up to take them inside (as opposed to cuddling them) and moves right to the back of the pile. She loves to play and looks irresistibly cute when she sits and gives the "please pick me up" look. Here are a couple of photos from yesterday.
