Through the Window

The "babies" Biscuit and Avery. I took these photos through a [dirty] window, and just love my "not puppies anymore" puppies! The weather finally cooled off, so the dogs spent much of this weekend outside.

Single Red-headed Female Seeking...

... lovely family to adore and spoil her as she deserves. Enjoys car rides, long walks, car rides, belly rubs, frapping, and car rides.
Beauty and brains, Breezy is a happy girl, and loves to have human companionship.

She is also very silly and playful.
Breezy is devoted to keeping the yard squirrel and vermin-free, and she's an excellent patrol for suspicious happenings in the neighborhood!

Duck toys beware, The Bee shows no mercy to waterfowl of any kind, especially Mallards. :-)

One of her favorite napping spots is under furniture. I finally gave her a bed under the chair. She's not hiding, she just loves a cozy den for a nap.

At the end of the day, after playing, and being silly and just plain cute, Breezy is a great napper, and a super, duper cuddler.
While Breezy has been posted to the CWCCA listings for a while, I thought I'd share her on the blog and also provide some additional photos. She just turned 4 years old, spayed, up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm preventative. She has also passed numerous OFA certifications (hips/elbows/etc.), and she's the mother of the four beautiful girls, Avery, Fran, Kitty, and Olive.
Breezy would prefer to be either an only dog with plenty of human time, or with boy dogs. She loves a big playful sporting dog to run with, and she is not specifically needing a Cardigan home. Her favorite buddies at home are not Cardigans. She loves Hawk the Vallhund and Big Nick the Shorthair/Lab mix. She'd like a home on the quieter side of chaos, and she has shown some good herding potential in the pen.

Happy 4th Birthday, Kingsbury Puppies!

Happy 4th Birthday to the Josie x Jake puppies.

Bella, Bo, Breezy, sweet Encore (waiting at The Bridge), Meme, Sydney, and Tater.

(in order left to right: Encore at back of pool, Bo, Bella, Syd, Tater, Breezy, Meme)
The first baby puppies to come live at my house (at 3 weeks old), this group was so much fun, and just a year ago, I had the adventure of having Sydney and Breezy's puppies, the first generation of Hurrikane puppies. :-)

I hope all the Kingsbury puppies have a great 4th birthday, and they get plenty of extra treats!

They Got to Move It, Move It

Who, us? No, we weren't doing anything... no rabble rousing going on out here. Really? Let's let the photos tell the story...

The cousins, Avery and Biscuit, have been separated for a whole week. You would have thought it was a year. When I finally let them play together Saturday, it was a giant frap & wrestling fest.

"Hey cuz, missed you."

Notice the Vallhund observers. These two were like line judges, keeping an eye on the game, but steering clear of the wild Cardigans!

You tell him, Avery! Love Avery's eyes and Biscuit's expression!

"Told you! You might be bigger than me, but I have skills!"

A Holiday Surprise

When I arrived home from work last night, I was surprised to find a gift from Andi, Breezy's "sister." It was a thank you for keeping Breezy a couple of weekends ago when the family was out of town. Inside was a really cute ornament, with all the dogs' names printed on it. You'll get a better idea of what the ornament looks like when you see Andi's talent in her artwork. :-) I enjoyed the card so much, I thought I'd share...

Here's the front of the card, with a lovely rendition of Breezy and Andi at the bottom.

And then here's the inside of the card. What a good artist, and a sweet message. :-) And that drawing looks exactly like the pretty ornament that was wrapped up in the package!

Exciting Stuff Going On...

Well, not really. In fact, this was the scene on Sunday, a room full of "speed bumps" laying around. I think it's really unfortunate that my dogs lead such a tough life. Biscuit wouldn't fit in the same frame, but he's laying right at Kane's tail, creating an uninterrupted (did I spell that right?) chain of dogs from one side of the living room to the other.And don't worry, the big kids are zonked out also, but they claimed the space (and the scrunched up blankies) on the sofa before any of the shorties did.
I asked if the dogs were doing some sort of Civil War battlefield re-enactment or something, but nobody answered. It does justify my belief that one can never own too many of the wonderful Costco dog blankets, though!
