Announcing THE "H" Litter's names.

So, the puppies have names now. There has been some discussion and some changes to their names over the last few days and the puppies have gone to different puppy raisers than originally intended, but all is well. YAY!

Names:


Red = Harlo


Purple = Hydra


Orange = Haven


Blue = Hawkeye


Green = Hudson

and last but not least...


Yellow = Tundra

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!

Puppy portraits... yeah right!

The other evening Amanda and I attempted to take portraits of the puppies. It was quite a job. We eventually got them all, well except for a really good one of Blue. These are a few of our attempts.

The finished pictures will be posted later with their names... : )


Yellow - maybe if I hide my face she will go away.


Waiting for a turn.


Orange - more cute pictures of us?!


Green - if I close my eyes...


Red - how not to sit still


Purple - making faces


Blue - ya gotta catch me first!


Pika making faces (Amanda's Dog and the Puppies fatherly influence). Now we know where Purple got her idea to make a face for the camera.


Pika being King of his domain


Blue - our 2nd attempt at photographing him.

Who let the dogs out?
