The two puppies I kept from the Brody x Phoebe litter are coming along nicely. This is generally the time of growth that you put them away and don't look at them while they mature. I refer to this in reference to showing of course, they are still much loved house dogs. Lennon is looking quite nice right now surprisingly, especially for an eight month old boy so I decided to enter him at a local show coming up. It's just down the road from me and will be good experience for him without a huge time/financial commitment which some of the shows that are a lot farther from home can be.
Friday is looking ok at the moment, a little more "stagey" (between growth stages) than her brother but I just love her bone/substance and her temperament is excellent. She will wait in the wings for the time being while Lennon makes his show debut.
In the meantime I will continue to give the youngsters (and the oldsters!) lots of free running both in the yard and out on the mountain trails as there is nothing like good old fashioned exercise to keep things tight and toned and the mind happy.
