February 22, 2014
The night before the puppies Gracie and Jazz were resting on the couch.
Friday morning Gracie decided it was time to get into the whelping box.
She had us watching and waiting until Saturday morning for puppies!
You can’t rush these things. Patience, patience, patience.
We were playing dress up while we waited for the puppies to start.
Tina and Sally are in the front row next to Sammy Sweetheart.
Angie is in the back row with Kayla.
Why do we have to wait out here?
The Peanut Gallery has been exiled. This happens every single time.
They get too curious and the new mom kicks them out!
Two pups and counting…………..
Not finished yet!
Look very closely and try counting……..
7 black puppies and 2 yellow puppies. Gracie did a great job!
Tina is learning to listen to the noise her collar makes
when she gets too close to the flags along the boundary line.
The trainer from Ridgefield Pet starts slowly with Tina and is very patient.
Tina gets her new collar and continues training.
Boundaries are very important.
Tina hears the noise from the collar and stays inside the yard.
All of our A Family Farm Labradors are trained on the
Pet Stop containment system, which keeps our Labs safe.
Tina gives positive feedback to her trainer from Ridgefield Pet.
She enjoyed her training today!
You did great Tina!
Tina is wearing her new collar now.
She is exhausted from all of her training today.
Tina will now be able to run around with the big dogs
instead of being walked on a leash.
Tina Bit O Sammy is loving the snow. Labradors love winter!
Tina and her Aunt Francie Pants out in the snow.
Sammy Sweetheart watches her daughter Tina as she eats a little bit of snow.
Sammy Sweetheart likes the taste of snow.
Zigging and zagging outside!
Angie is working on her favorite rope toy.
Sally is teaching Tina to play Tug O War with another favorite rope toy.
Gracie Clementine and Sally have the rope
while Tina is trying to get in on the game.
Everyone is in on this game!
Sammy Sweetheart and Sally resting up for an inside game.
Hot chocolate would be good. Is that for me?
When you have lots of rain, you have lots of wet dogs.
It is a lot of work, but the dogs sit still while Margaret dries them off.
We have a lot of “dog towels” for times like this.
Sometimes they actually “cut” the line to get wiped again!
We try to get one dog at a time, so Angie is waiting patiently outside.
Sally has the towel on. Tina is curious and Kayla on the right is already dried off.
Angie is soooooooo wet!!
Angie was the last one in so she was soaked!
Gracie checks on Angie while she is being dried off.
