Nellie is 12 years old today! She is the dam of Johnny and Jane, and granddam of Winston, Clyde and See See.
I just found out today is Connie’s mom’s birthday too! Peggy has been a great puppy owner, asking lots of good questions and dealing with some really stubborn ears! Here are some pics of Peggy with Connie and family. Happy birthday to you too!
Thank you so much, Tiffany, for sending this great pic of Loosy! She looks so beautiful and well cared for. I love the way each puppy from this litter is unique yet resembles each parent or grandparent. In Loosy, I see her dad’s expression and her Grandma Nellie’s pretty long-haired soft looks. I’m also admiringContinue reading “Loosy!”
Connie’s ears gave us all fits. They were taped and taped again. They got better, she was teething, they came down, we tried the breathe right strips, and then tried it again, and finally that lazy ear came up! She is so pretty with her ears up! Thank you for sending the pics Peggy! GoshContinue reading “More success with ears!”
Mustang, aka Chief, the only longhaired male in the litter, had some real trouble with his ears as you remember from previous posts. With the assistance of the breathe right strips they are now standing nicely. You can see in this photo that the hair inside the ear we supported hasn’t grown back yet. BecauseContinue reading “Good outcome with ears using strips!”

Vets do ear cropping which is totally different than simply taping ears that won’t stand. I think the vet did a good job, but I would have liked for the ears toContinue reading “Connie’s ears, retaped”
Good news: Connie’s ears are up! After just 6 days of tape, the forms got a little dislodged, so her owner had to take all the tape off. And lo and behold, they look perfect! Yay! Bad news: They fell back down…. They had to be retaped. I don’t have a pic of the retaping.Continue reading “Good news Bad news”
I get to see Mustang every now and then because he lives in Richmond. His name is “Chief” now, and at almost 5 months, he weighs 60lbs. His ears look great, after some iffy up and down time. I love his nice dark colors and great substantial structure. Being a longhair, he looks huge.
At 8 weeks old, these puppies are the perfect age to begin the bonding experience with a new family. Right now, I have two puppies still available from a litter of eleven including one normal coat male. I call him Quarter (Quarterhorse), and he is wearing the purple collar that you can also see inContinue reading “GSD puppies still available!”
