Our litter of pups, born to Abbie and Cap on November 20, are now eight weeks old. They are quite lively and healthy.
Olive was the first to leave the litter and went to Missouri, where her new young owner is a nursing student. She is a dear friend of our veterinarian and a fine dog trainer. She will introduce Olive to both agility and herding.
Target (the French pronunciation, of course) is now called Sian (a Welsh name and pronounced “shawn”) will be going to a fine herding competitor who lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
We will be holding on to Hector and Betty, so the one we call Bart (for Black Bart, since he is the blackest of the five pups) is up for sale. We have had an offer for purchase from someone who wants him as a companion dog, but we would much perfer to place him with someone who will work him on sheep.
