Happy 1st Birthday!

Happy 1st Birthday!

It is hard to believe that it has been a year since I was in the car going home after Franny had her C-section and was listening to the vocalist sing. This litter was definitely the highlight of our year. We are so very proud of each and every one of the puppies. Thank you so much to their humans for providing such wonderful homes!

Faith is such a sweetheart yet such a mischievous girl. We think she is cuter than cute and love her to pieces. We are hoping to have her in the show ring this coming year.

Finnegan’s (fka Ringo) mom had this to say about him: “He is an active boy and he and Loki are best Pals. He has chosen to be my hubby’s shadow. We adore him.”

Pip (fka Phillip) stole my heart from the from the beginning. He had colic really bad and I would give him baby gasx and put him on my shoulder and rub his back. Even now, when he is unsure or wants comfort he wants to go to my shoulder although he is too big for that now. He is a very sweet, smart and energetic boy. This last weekend in Coeur d’Alene he was reserve to a major and we are hoping to have him in the ring more this year.

Riker’s (fka Jagger) mom had this to say about him: “he is such a curious but sensitive guy. He is so friendly with other dogs and wants nothing more than have someone to play with anywhere we go. In fact he loves dogs so much he’d gladly follow any of them home if he could hahaha.”

Simon’s (fka Tyler) mom had this to say:”Simon is doing well, and changing every month, as growing puppies do. (I’m missing him so much while I’m out of town)! He plays with toys well by himself better than ever (when he came to us, he wasn’t quite sure what joy toys could bring him that sniffing in the yard could not!). He’s very into sticks on walks, and will collect as many sticks as his mouth will allow. He’s very snuggly when the temperature is acceptable, and then goes to lie on the bathroom tile (when it’s too warm we make an effort to keep the house cool, of course!). He loves other dogs and most people. Simon is so wonderful, and we’re so happy to have him in our lives. Thank you for the best pup for us!”

Four Months Old

Four Months Old

On Friday the Franny x Tristan puppies turned 4 months old. It doesn’t seem possible, I guess time really does fly.

Faith, she is such a smart, sweet, mischievous little girl,

Finnegan aka Ringo. He loves playing with his new siblings and still likes to “sing”.

Joni aka Carrie. This is a picture of her and her new brother Jack from a few weeks ago. I should be getting more pictures today and I will post them when I get them.

Pip aka Phillip. He is a very loving, eager to please, laid back, but loves to play.

Simon aka Tyler. He just graduated from puppy kindergarten. The second picture is from yesterday when he got to meet his cousin Whiskey from our Lucy x Chapel litter.

Riker aka Jagger. He is very much loved and likes to be Kyria’s foot warmer when she works.

Bye Puppies!

Bye Puppies!

I am sorry, I should have done this earlier, but the last week was really busy here. Last Saturday, the puppies left for their new homes at the specialty in Richland. It was a whirlwind of a day with the puppies leaving and their great uncle Pilot winning the specialty at the age of 10 years old. Congratulations to Mandy and Carolyn for this big win! It is always hard when the puppies leave, but knowing what good homes they have and how happy their new people are make it better. The reports are that all of them are being good puppies and are doing very well with their house breaking.

Tyler is now Simon and is now living with Jordana and Chris. His registered name is Stormridge Hold On Magnoloa.

Jagger is now Riker and is now living with Kyria and Clarke in Canada. His registered name is Stormridge Further North Than South.

Ringo is now Finnegan and is living with Rebecca and Tim and his new cardi sister, Loki. His register name is Stormridge Here Comes the Sun.

I don’t have a picture, but Carrie also went to her new home. Her name is now Joni and she is now living with Louise and Gary. Her registered name is Stormridge Both Sides Now.

Thank you so much to the new puppy owners for providing such good homes and for loving these very special puppies.

9 Weeks old Corgi kids…

Well, now at 9 weeks, wow, seemed like yesterday we were waiting for eyes to open. Well, their eyes are open and legs are working just fine thank you. Do they like to play? What do you think, cripes I am not sure they sleep. No, they sleep, but they love to play a lot. Time running with momma in the yard is a highlight, man can they go.

Now for the stars of our show…
Carrie soon to be Joni.

That’s nine weeks old, I don’t know if we will ever have a litter with such adorable pups. Each pup is so very special, when its time, we sure will miss them.

This afternoon I had the chance to take some pictures of Faith, Ringo and their Grandma Clem. They all thought it was great fun.

Ringo is such a fun puppy. He is always on the move and usually has a big grin on his face.

Sometimes Clementine likes to be the fun police.

Pretty Faith. I love her light ears and the dark face.
