On Tuesday they went to the vet for their visit which included their 1st puppy shots, a weigh in, a second worming and another nail trim. The heaviest pup was Indy who weighed 10.9 pounds. The lightest is Slate who weighted 9.5 pounds. The pups were pretty-well behaved at the vet's office and did not even squeal when they got their shots. They did not like the Bortatella nasal spray and certainly did NOT like the ride to the vets. Slate and Cobalt screamed all the way there and back.
Four of the pups will head south to their Forever homes this weekend. Sarah moved to her new home in Thousand Oaks earlier this week. The 3 other pups will be staying with us for a bit longer. After having them with us for these last months and seeing how close they are I know how they are going to miss each other. If you have been watching the puppy camera you have seen how rough, tumble and loud they can be, but you also see them sleeping together in a tight knot. They do love being together, but now need to move on to get the love and training from others, both human and canine. There is a sadness within our family that the pups are leaving us and each other but a relief that we were able to get Sarah from the track when we did and give her and her pups a bright future. It has been a magical, being part of their birth and watching as they have grown into a most beautiful group of greyhound pups. Alan and I look forward to seeing them all again and hope they can all get together like the GreySave 6 did one year in Solvang. Today as we move them we wish them a wonderful life.
