They've arrived! Here are Bonnie, Casey (M) and Annie, three days old.
This litter is a 10 rated VGL breeding and both parents are fully health tested.
There is lots of information about Reba on her own page here.
Freedom is a 4-year-old import from Croatia and sire of Reba's 2019 litter. The pups will be either black like their Dad, or blue like their Mom, Reba.
Freedom loves to play ball. He is quick to learn and ever so loving. When I first met him, he instantly brought me his ball and was insistent that I throw it for him, and so I did until I could throw it no more.
Both Freedom and Reba love people. It seems they have never met a stranger. They are both highly intelligent and learn things astonishingly quickly. These traits have been passed on to their children. At one year of age, their daughter Abby already had a Champion Trick Dog title, and at 16 months, she was a Grand Champion Trick Dog. Not an easy feat.
COVID has not been easy on puppies. Socialization is so difficult, but my puppies have seemed to cope reasonably well compared to many others. Why? Because they had so many visitors in their first 2 1/2 months of life and lots of life lessons. They played with toys that challenged them, teeter-totters, ramps, climbing on boxes, or into boxes. They listened to tapes of gunshots, cars backfiring, train whistles, babies screaming, children playing and played with empty water bottles and in a pool with water and bottles. They slept through the night alone in a crate, went to the door to go outside to do their business, and mostly had lots of visitors, including their Great Grandmother Jessie and Great Uncle Justice. This year this litter will be able to meet their big brother Billy. I'm not sure who will get the most out of that visit…. haha
You will find a photo of Billy on his Page of this website and Abby on the following YouTube page. https://youtu.be/s1VNlpflGcw
