Crazy days so far, for summer...


It's been so long and a lot has happened since my last blog!  Lucy and Boogie had their puppies on the 18th of June--to start...  They had two girls and two boys--none blue!!!  So weird to see her with non-blue puppies...  In the past with Chico, she has only had blues and one black tri (but Black, Blue & Chocolate are all the same color/gene) so not to see a single blue, black or choco in her litter is just plain strange.  It's as if she is being a surrogate to these pups that do not look like they belong with her!!! Sorry, kinda of whacky--but that is just me...

All my human kids are off for the summer--and that has been exhausting!  Trying to keep everyone busy and happy.  We are also actively selling our home and showing it--which is also exhausting when you have a house full of kids and dogs--the cleaning can get overwhelming...  To top it off, I have had to sell my beloved horses--which has me broken down, for the moment...  Taja my Arabian Mare went to live with a family that has 11 yr. old girls that show in 4H--and she is doing quite well at their home which is on 5 acres and has other horses...  But, I miss her terribly... India, my older Draft/Tennessee Walker mare is still here and I trying to find her a good home where she will be used very occasionally...  She is an old lady that deserves to be retired for the rest of her life.  It is so sad to see her alone and looking out and calling for Taja, which was her pasture mate.  It's heartbreaking and too much for me at the moment. 

Nini and Chico's mating did not take.  Nini had a very strange heat cycle a couple of months ago.  So, it was sketchy from the get go...  She came into heat immediately after her last boy left our home and he was only a couple of months old???  She usually comes back into heat 4 months after her puppies leave her side--so, it was a questionable mating.  But, she is fine-just a little chunkier from my feeding her as if she were prego...  But, she'll lose the weight now that we know there are no pups...  She may go at it one more time...  We'll see. 

Daisy and Boogie are like two lovebugs--inseperable...  Daisy will be mated with Boogie when she is ready.  That combination will be interesting, no doubt...

The heat in Central Florida has been unbearable!  Honestly, what are looking toward in the future???  Heat index is at an average 106 degrees--crazy... and dangerous... 

Lucy's pups turned 10 days today...  They are chunkers and growing fast!   Soon, they will open their eyes--which is always so exciting!  Have to say they are so interesting in color--they are all tri colored (Red, Black & White) and have black masks, for now...  Lucy is being the phenomenal mom that she always is...  And life is a bit complicated, sad and anxious for us at the moment--but, Life Is Good--nonetheless...
