I have video and pictures but I’m so tired right now that I need to sleep for a week. The short version is that we all had an amazing time, I felt so surrounded by friends and support that it made me get teary totally apart from the puppies leaving, and here’s the list:
Puck, Quince, Bosco, and Sebastian are still here. Thank God. I desperately need the transition time.
Oberon and Bernard: Went home with Sarah to live with their dad, and will be shown and do everything else that Sarah does with her dogs.
Iggy: Off to Minnesota with my dear friend Sue to be a quadruple-ring dog and live with Great Danes.
Felix: Leaving on a jet plane with Leila to be an agility star.
Peaseblossom: On an overnight visit right now; if things look good I’m very excited for her. More info as it comes.
Moth: Going to Dave’s to live with her aunt Harper and take over the world.
Bridgid: Going out West to be a service dog and hopefully get her toes wet in the show ring too.
Hedwig: Home with Alison and her husband; she gets to stay local and that makes me SO happy.
Titania: Home with Emily, her husband, two boys, and a Great Pyrenees. She will be small but mighty. Also local (yay!).
Zeno: Home with Nancy and David and loved within an inch of his life. Also local (oh my gosh, yay. I am so thrilled with my local buyers).
Thankfully, aside from a rather sobby moment when Iggy left for Minnesota, most of my puppy-related tears have been from laughter. I know these kids are going to be SO loved.
Tomorrow I will be a little more coherent, post new names and new pictures, and also introduce you to a Very Charming Lady. It’s all very exciting!
