All grown up at nearly three

I received a few pictures of some of the puppies from this litter. First are the flower girls Daffodil and Magnolia. they have grown up to be beautiful liver girls. It appears that Magnolia likes to chew on Daffodil's ears. I have seen other dogs do this and for some reason the dog getting her ears slobbered on really seems to enjoy it. Unfortunately it discolors the ears.

Below is Daisy one of the three LUA girls in thia litter.

My First LUA /NUA Champion

On June 26, 2010 Lila became a UKC Champion!!!!! Recently the UKC changed the Dalmatian standard to address a major health problem in our breed. That problem is deafness. It has long been known that the number of deaf and unilaterally deaf puppies born can be reduced by a few simple breeding practices. Don't breed blue eyes or unilateral deaf dogs and do on occasion breed patched dogs. As you can see Lila has an ear patch and I do believe she is the first dog with a patch to finish her championship since the new standard revision.

It doesn't seem possible that the Topper - Gambit puppies are a year old already. Lila had a very nice day beginning with a broiled boneless, skinless chicken breast for breakfast. Then she spent a good part of the day playing with her new wabba toy. She shares very nicely so her best friend Bizzi had a lot of fun too! She also managed to dig a few holes so you will see her nose is very dirty. Here are some pictures of Lila, Daffodil and Magnolia. I am hoping to get some current pictures of some of the other pups now that they are all grown up. Lila

Lila at 6 months

Today I took Lila to get her microchip and while we were there LaDonna snapped some pictures of her. She was very happy to get to see lots of dogs and people.

Here is Sydney one of the three NUA girls in the litter. She is growing into a stunning girl. She is keeping her new family busy but they love her and she manages to sleep in someone's bed every night! This is Daisy another one of the NUA girls. She is turning into quite a hunter. She recently caught a rabbit much to her new Mom's dismay.
Below is Magnolia graduating from her first class. Daffodil also graduated!
The picture below is very special to me because it is Norman with his big brother Floyd. Floyd is a Sawyer (Ch Rim Rock's Country Spirit) son and he looks so much like Sawyer did in his old age that this picture brought tears to my eyes when I received it. Floyd was the only puppy that survived from his litter so I got quite attached to him.
