More pictures from our day at Cate!

Here are some of the many pictures that Mary took last week. She got some really fun shots.
First is Mighty Mite racing around the outfield. Next are two red/white boys, chewing on a stick they found, followed by Mighty Mite chasing one of the boys. Next a rare shot of one of the boys not racing around, and then three of them racing again. Lastly the other red/white boy taking a breather.

Wedding Day

On Saturday, we went to a wedding. It was quite fun.
Creig's cousin, Ashley, was married at her house in Carpinteria. I made the wedding cake, haven't done one in quite a few years. It was fun. Katie was a bridesmaid, (she's the tall one). Our cousin Martha has a 4 1/2 month old daughter, Coraline, who was the "Flower Petal", she came down the aisle in a decked out wagon, pulled by another cousin, Kyle. (he's 4). They were so cute. Coraline was asleep going down the aisle, but woke up later. A very fun day.

Another Fun Photo Shoot!

Here are a few of the pictures that our friend, Mary, took on Tuesday morning. Three of the kids whose families live up at Cate School joined us and had great fun posing with puppies and helping round them up when they ventured too far from us. We had the whole outfield of the baseball diamond. The puppies loved racing around on the grass. Thanks to Keller, Kate and Eli for their help! The top two pics are my red/white girl, no name as yet. Next is the big brindle boy, and then the blue eyed boy. Keller and Eli's grandma has a Corgi so Mary took pics of them with the puppies to show their grandma, who lives back east.

Fun Times!

The puppies, Mom and I had fun up at Cate School today. They got to run around on the outfield of the baseball diamond, while our friend Mary took pictures. They also got to play with 3 of the kids who live at Cate School, and they enjoyed that very much. Mary will email me some pictures later today.

Corgi Fun Day 2010

We took the puppies to Corgi Fun Day yesterday, set up a pen and then spent the day talking to all the folks who stopped by to see them. They were photographed all day long, and petted and oohed and awed over.
Today they are tired, it was a long day for them!

9 Weeks Old.

The puppies were 9 weeks old yesterday. They got to play with Elliot, who is 16 months old. He enjoyed them, and they thought he was fun to chase. Elliot belongs to Brian and Beth, who are friends of my daughter, Katie.
I took the picture of them all in a row on Thursday, while they waited for me to bring them their lunch. They had been sleeping and I put the kibble in the bowls and that woke them up!

A Long Afternoon!

We are back home from Tustin. Everyone traveled very well, and they were all very glad to be back home!
Each and every eye was just perfect, not a problem in the bunch.
They charmed the office staff, and the other folks in the waiting room.
Now I have to remember to order their microchips so we can get those done, and we'll be done with all the "to dos".

Road Trip today.

We are off to Tustin today for a visit to the Eye Care for Animals office for CERF exams for the puppies.
Last year we had a really nice gal (Dr. Twitchell) do the eye exams, she came to Barb's house and we did Tina's litter, Salsa's litter and several other dogs were all looked at. Unfortunately, I just learned that Dr. Twitchell died earlier this year.
Hence, the trip today. I've also gone to the Eye Care for Animals in Pasadena, but they weren't doing a CERF clinic until late next month.
Took this pic a couple of days ago, in a quiet moment!

Finally, individual pics of the Puppies.

First, here is the little red/white boy, who is definitely a pistol (Pistol Pete?) and wouldn't stand for his photo initially. We did finally get him to stand briefly, but not on the happy legs that everyone else used for their side shots! Second is the big r/w boy with the kink at the end of his tail, which is getting harder to see, but still easy to feel. Last in this post is the big r/w boy. My friend Kathy took the pics and we borrowed her happy feet, which helps to get them stacked correctly. I needed to move it a bit for the big r/w girl so she looks a big stuffy in the pic. While we were doing the pictures they got to explore in Kathy's back yard, which they thought was very fun.

The Brindle Boys

Here are the brindle boys, the blue eyed boy is in the middle.

And the Girls!

Here are the two girls, the big red/white girl and little Mighty Mite, who is the smallest puppy, at 4 pounds 7 oz, but no shrinking violet!

A Busy Day

We took the puppies down to Woodland Hills today for their well puppy check-ups.
Dr. Jackson pronounced them all "cute as bugs". She listened to their hearts, (all good), checked their patellas (all good), bites (all good) and the boys all have their parts!
I ordered vaccines today, which will come on Friday, so we'll do them on Friday (they'll be 8 weeks old). We wormed them today as well. They were fairly good on their way down, a bit of crying from a couple of them, but they slept all the way home, and after they ate lunch they slept some more. It was their first car ride since we took them to Barb's to do the dewclaws, and they couldn't see or hear then. I took a box of shavings and each one went potty after the exam, which impressed Dr. Jackson. Such good puppies!
I took the outside pic yesterday, they enjoy going out to run around now.
