• It’s not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

  • Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

    It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..." _Hermann Hesse

Pupper Update #1 – Morgan Litter

Pile o’ Puppies – Day #4

Morgan is doing well and proving to be a great mother.
The Puppy Pile
As you can see, there is some real disparity in size between some of these puppies. We have three that are decidedly smaller than the other four.  The two little girls and one little boy have been on supplemental feedings to help them keep up their strength and gain weight. They seem to be coming along, but these first days are critical – they’re just so helpless at this point.
What about those tails? OK, we know that the U.S. breed standard says that this is a breed in which the tails are docked, although this is no longer done in the U.K.  But these are never going to be show dogs and the three little ones were weak enough that we just couldn’t take the chance of stressing them with unnecessary surgery on day #3 when tail docking is done.  
Therefore, we will have a mixed bag with this litter. Four had their tails docked, three will keep their full tails.  Based on our previous experience in placing Pembrokes with full tails, there will be adopters out there who will be absolutely thrilled to have a dog with a full tail.  Believe me, we will have no trouble finding homes for them – and their tails!
Here’s the smallest male, Puppy #4, getting some extra nourishment. 
Please send good wishes, prayers…any and all. He can really use the help!
Even the “big” ones are still pretty teeny. 
Here is one of the biggest males, Puppy #1.
Puppy #2. One of the two small girls with a tail.
And this other “big guy” is puppy #3.
Puppy #5 – a nice big girl!
Puppy #6 – the other small girl.
Puppy #7 – a robust male.
Next to do: Figure out some names for these pups. Stay tuned to see what their puppy names will be. Our theme: Cities and Towns in Kansas.
