Lance is just the cutest thing you'll ever see! And he's a pretty good boy too. He did get a leaf that had been trekked into my car, but he's a baby so that's to be expected. He is right now checking out the area and walking all around the bed a sniffing. I got to pull out the puppy toys too! He just loves him his toys. He's just adorable. Pictures to come tonight.

~I'd just like to say that I spelled lingerie correctly the FIRST time. That's pretty amazing.

She is such a mellow puppy! She fell asleep in my hands and just allowed me to hold her. I mean she was sooooo mellow. This is a good thing because my step mom is probably going to hold her in her lap all day while she works. :)
She's also really tiny. She's so small compared to her bothers. I don't know if you can tell in these pictures but she really is TINY!
I got so excited today. While I was out shopping for some kitchen supplies for college I came across the dog aisle in the store. So, I bought two toy's for PrimRose. One is the stuffed giraffe that doesn't squeak, but it honks. What's really funny about it is that it is bigger than she is. :) Another is this cool rope toy that looks like an octopus. I love octopi! So I had to get it! :) It is also bigger than she is. It's been so long since I've been able to buy toys for a puppy without checking to see if it was approved first. Rosie comes home on the 12th of September.

On the side note of the surgery, he's healing really quickly. No whining or anything. You can tell he's a little hyper because of not getting to move for days, but he's also very willing to sleep. But he's acting like himself and is really just being a good boy. No popped stitches and no infections! WOOT!

No, you see, I got this email yesterday from Belle's breeder custodians. I really like Ken and Nancy. They're just wonderful people. I mean, I got a CD of pictures of Belle's "F" litter. A lot of the great little puppy pictures of Freya I have are from that CD. And when the "E" litter was born I expressed the want to have who would later become Epic. It might have totally worked out too if I kept my receive date the same. But this is only somewhat beside the point. The point is that they recommended me to the puppy raising department to raiser Epic. Of course I didn't end up with another Belle puppy this time, but I got the CD of their first 2 months of life all the same. So you can imagine my sadness when I get an email saying the Belle is going to be retired from the breeding program. So, no more Belle puppies. They had a whole bunch of options and opted to retire Belle right away with, I believe 4 litters. It might be 3, but I'm pretty sure she had one in between her "D" litter and her "F" litter.
So, no more Belle puppies for me. I guess it's a good thing and I am totally excited about it, but Mama Belle is a wonderful dog and I'm sad that her genes sort of stop here. Unless one of the "E" puppies is chosen as a breeder. I don't think any of the black ones are on breeder eval, so I guess that means our hope is in Epic.
I am a little sad because I would have loved to raise another Belle puppies, but it's time. She's almost 7 years old, so she's probably ready to retire.

I do not like the cone of shame.
He's favouring the fleece toy right now. And he's doing great with it so I'm letting him have it because I want him to be comfy.
Do you see his shave mark?

A really pretty view of the river we were camped by.
Me and Arwen the second day. I don't look that bad even though I'm all dirty and oily. :)
I like this picture of me better. The last one was better of Arwen.
I think Arwen really enjoyed herself.
She's such a pretty girl.
Look! She's got on happy ears and everything. I was worried that she would be too nervous to have fun, but she loved every minute (minus the first night in the tent) of it.
I think Arwen is the most gorgeous Golden ever! But I'm a little bias.
OK, so this one wins for my favourite picture of Arwen...EVER. It's hilarious. Can you see her wonky face?
Arwen liked playing in the River.
Look how happy she is.
See? So happy. At one point she went over to the river and laid down in the water. It was so cute!
Here's Arwen on the way back. I decided that I couldn't have Rocco at my feet again because he kept popping up and down like a jack-in-the-box. So we smushed both dogs in the back.
I think Arwen is so cute.
And now some of Rocco and me and Arwen probably.
Why is Rocco always licking me?
This is my profile picture now on facebook.
I like this picture of us.
There are a lot of pictures like this.
Another one. It took a while to get a good one.
Rocco, Arwen, and me in front of a little stream we found.
Another one. I don't know why I have so many of the same picture.
I don't think Rocco is too happy about all these pictures.
Them in the river.
They really liked this camping thing.
I love how Rocco looks so dejected.
It's like we never left home.
He loved the river and loved being able to get in and out on his own.
Can you see how sandy and wet he is? Oh they were sooooo dirty when I got them home.
Does he look tired to anyone else?
My pretty boy in the small tent.
OK, maybe this one is my favourite.
