Hawkeye... our little Wolverine wannabee

Hawkeye was in the mood for a little movie magic on the weekend, so his family obliged and took him to see Wolverine. Nice!

He was a pretty good boy, but at one point in the movie he let out an appropriately timed hhoowwll much to the delight of all those in attendance.



Of course there are other things that must be done on weekends besides chilaxing at the movies... grocery shopping. Nice picture guys!

Some classroom comments from the gallery

These photo's are from Puppy class @ Waggin Tales on April 24th. I find it amazing how much these little guys already know.

Hawkeye


A very good down stay.


It's just a little distracting...

Sgt Chris and his faithful puppy Hawkeye

Hawkeye's puppy raiser is one of the good guys! He recently got his 10 year service award. Here are the guys being handsome and adorable!

EDIT... It's the 20 year service award!!! Sorry about that Chris.






Hawkeye, the shredder

Tough day at work. Time for a nap.

Not an "H" Litter hound, but one of ours none the less

Some of the families

At one of the earlier puppy classes I took some photo's of the puppies and their raisers. We're missing Hydra in this batch, but I'll be sure to get a picture of them later.

Hudson


Haven


Hawkeye

And now for some pictures of Hudson

Hudson is a sweet, laid back little fella. Although... his puppy raisers might have something to say about that, at times anyway. He is quite content to relax and take it easy. He can also let loose. When he is with his brother and sisters, look out! These puppies know how to play and wrassle.


Stretched out for a nice snooze


Hudson and his buddy sharing some cuddle time


Am I cute or what?!


But it's a good place to catch a nap in the sunbeams!!!

Hawkeye's adventures thus far

Hawkeye is quite the little character. He loves to play with his 2 big brothers (1 - 2 legged and 1 - 4 legged) and his little sister (the 2 legged variety). He's totally cute and loveable. Here are some pictures that prove it!


Hawkeye and his hippo. Quite the twosome.


Enjoying what is hopefully the last of the snow for awhile...


Grocery shopping... too bad about having to stay in the cart... fun could be had by all if... : )


Chris & Hawkeye taking in some bowling


Jacob, you're just too funny!


Hawkeye and his bro' Pika


Shopping with his brother & sister and wishing he could escape from the cart!

Hudson being a very good puppy

When I was puppy sitting Hudson last week, I took him up to the General Hospital to visit a very good friend of mine, Betty. She is pretty much bed-ridden so really appreciated a little TLC from Hudson.

Hudson was very good. He gave Betty some lovely kisses and then proceeded to lay down next to her and have a nap. Nice!

Puppysitting Hudson

I had the honor of puppysitting Hudson during the day yesterday and today while his puppy raiser was taking a course at West Edmonton Mall (WEM).

Hudson was VERY happy to see me!!!! He likes me, he really likes me!!!

We spent some time visiting with the morning walkers. They all thought that Hudson was very cute and wished him well growing up. Then we spent some time at my house. Mostly napping I might add. Then it was off to the DWW office to visit and play with Jet.

On Thursday we also visited a friend of mine in the General Hospital. Hudson was wonderful. He gave Betty some kisses and then laid down beside her with his head on her leg and had a little nap.

After that we went to McDonalds for lunch. Hudson was on his best behavior and we made some more friends, although some people looked at us like we were aliens.

Then we went back to WEM to meet up with Hudson's puppy raiser. Hudson was very, very tired and I had to nudge him more than once to wake up.

Today was just a 1/2 day.

We made more friends at WEM, had a nap at my house and then to DWW to play with Jet a little bit.

Hudson and I talked to LOTS of people about Dogs with Wings AND about the kind of jobs that he may grow up to do.

Here are a few pictures of our adventures.



Auntie Marsha is taking pictures again! Somebody save me!!


This is a nice one by the ship.


This is Hudson (on top) and his buddy Jet westling at the DWW office.


Here is Hudson being cute.


And another one of Hudson.

Last evening with Amanda

By now, the puppies are all checking out their new homes with their new puppy raising families. Sigh... I can hardly wait for the first class to see them again! Anyway, I took some video of all of them last night. Yikes! Were they ever rambuncious. By the way... at the end of the video... that's what happens when you give a puppy a chance to operate a camera. I'm glad I bought a sturdy one!

Enjoy puppies at play.

PS It might take awhile to load. It's a BIG file!
