Noah at Woofstock

Hi Don
This afternoon, Noah went to Woofstock to participate in the CKC Legends
exhibit featuring the Canadian breeds. Although it was very hot and very
crowded he wS a good boy and we had lots of fun!
They had a booth set up showing all the Canadian breeds and people get to
see them and can talk about them.
Then they had a display on the main stage where a CKC rep described each
breed and he was actually very knowledgeable lol then each one of us got to
talk about our dog and what we do with them. Then of course people came up
to meet them as well. Noah just loved that.

Hi there, Nya is 31 lbs now and she started loosing her puppy teeth (2 so far).  She’s doing great.




Hi Don,

I see Dot/Puck are at it again! Very cute :)

Ireland is good so far. A healthy mixture of NL and the Cabot Trail. 60km hiked in 3 days - Merlin would have loved to hike with me. TONS of farms, there are more sheep than people! Weather is holding its own. Here are a few pics.

Nya is doing great!

Nya at 14 weeks


Pat/Storms litter at 48 hrs

Only two left, a yellow female and a black female.

I have no explanation but whenever there is a litter of two colours, they will most often separate themselves by colour!! They can’t even see but they surely can. What is even more remarkable to me is that they even want to.

All happy, hungry and healthy!

Top 10 Dog Poisons

From WebMD:

Last year, there were more than 100,000 cases of pet poisoning in the U.S. Many of these were caused by household substances that may seem perfectly harmless to you. But just because something is safe for people doesn't mean it won’t hurt beloved pets. Some of the most dangerous dog poisons are foods and medications we take on a daily basis..
