And Then There Were Three...

All the Brody x Phoebe puppies have gone to their new homes and are in the process of settling in. All of course except the three that are staying here at Braebrook, and here they are just a few days shy of twelve weeks.

A Harrison Update

I thought it was time for an update on Backbone Harrison Ford, the puppy I imported and co own with my friend Michelle Rowton. Michelle has been busy with our boy, getting him out to a few shows and she tells me his temperament is impeccable, very confident and steady which I'm thrilled to hear.

Harrison is just eight months old and has only been shown a couple of weekends but is already major pointed with multiple best puppy in specialty wins and multiple best in sweepstakes wins. One of the sweetest things about this already impressive record is that he is owner handled by Michelle who you can see with him here.

Here is a picture of Harrison with Elaine Hopper who stepped in to handle when Michelle was called away.

The future is looking bright for this young dog who will only get better with age and maturity.

Brody x Phoebe 10 and half weeks

I can't believe the puppies start to go to their new homes next week. It will be much quieter around here but I will miss them, they've been a charming bunch. 
I decided to go with a Beatles theme for this litter and the names have been really fun, everyone was happy to name their puppy after their favourite Beatles tune.
I started the stacked photos outside and finished them inside...right around the time one of the lights in my dog room burnt out and we then had to move into my husband's garage for good lighting. The red collar puppy has a distracting background but we then found some wood to cover it up. I think it's most likely you're focusing on the puppies anyway but I like things to look clean and not take away from them.
Heads are pretty hard to judge from the side in these pics, because as soon as I push their cups forwards they get wrinkly little faces. They are pretty though as you've seen in previous posts.

Here they are at 10 and a half weeks:

Braebrook's We All Shine On "Lennon" formally black collar - staying at Braebrook

Braebrook's Love Me Do "Khaleesi"  formally yellow collar - going to a performance home with Errol and Toni.

Braebrook's From Me To You "Dante" formally blue collar - going to live with Ryan and Jennifer.

Braebrook's Revolution "Ryan" formally red collar - staying at Braebrook

Braebrook's In My Life "Rhea" formally pink collar - going to a show home with Robert and Laurie

Braebrook's Eight Days a Week "Friday" formally white collar - staying at Braebrook

Braebrook's Here Comes the Sun "Lyric" formally green collar - has gone to a performance home with CJ.

Thank you everyone for choosing a Braebrook puppy!

Brody and Phoebe puppies at eight weeks

Here we are.....two months after they were born...cropping is booked for next week, I can't believe how quickly that time passed. Puppies of course are a full time job, but it's one I love very much, and minus the constant poop scooping duty getting down to the time when they leave to their new homes is tough. They have these amazing individual personalities and waking up to those little faces every morning is such a treat. Having said that I also know how much joy they bring to their new families, and just how wonderful those new families are...very deserving of having a member of this amazing breed. Thank you for choosing me as your breeder, and don't ever feel like some question is too trivial or that I wouldn't enjoy every photo and update you think to send my way. I love and welcome them all.

Here are the little nippers at eight weeks:

Braebrook's We Run the Night "Havana" at three months

Havana is growing up nicely and she is such a showy thing. I have never had a singleton before but it makes sense that they think they own the show...everything has been all about them since the day they were born!

I think she is a lovely blend of her parents which is what you always hope for when you do a breeding and she's a very fun dog. I see a bright future.
