Last evening, and again this morning we had a visit from one of the puppy buyers.
Trish bought a puppy from my 1996 "A" litter. He was a much loved companion for 10+ years, but she lost him last year, followed shortly by her elderly Australian Shepherd.
When she emailed me last year to let me know that she had lost her "B boy", I told her about my plans for Penny, and she let me know right away that she was interested in another puppy.
She and her hubby were here to visit with the puppies and meet Penny. It was a special time. I got to look through her photo album of the pictures of her Braxx, and heard many stories that showed clearly how very much he was cherished and missed. Needless to say, this is a lucky puppy that will be going home with them. *grin*
I took a couple of photos while they were here, and also got a couple other shots that I think you will enjoy.
She REALLLLLLY loves this puppy. I explained to her that he might not be the one to go home with her, but to tell the truth, I hope it works out that way. He came straight to her the moment she walked up to the whelping box inside last night, and did the same thing this morning out on the patio.
I caught Toby playing with and carrying around the leather utility scent article that I have had in the box with them. He might be a future obedience star. He has also been observed carrying around a piece of newspaper he tore up from the potty area as a prize, picking it up and taking it with him while repositioning several times.
And I really don't think this one needs any explanation at all. This is Bruce, ladies and gentlemen. *grin*
