Now Playing: Update on Joy's litter

We have been growing.  Today we got weighed and we weigh about 15#'s. We are eating canned milk, with egg yolk's and blenders of Dry Food.

We also eat Kirkland's lamb and rice and chicken and rice biscuits once a day.

We have some new toys, but we like the old ones that our elder's played with instead of the new ones. There is a football, a huge rubber ball but so far all we do is watch mom spin it like a top. WE are still too little to get our mouths around the toys.  Mom is now teaching us to 'Kennel Up !" whenever she goes to the barn to feed the horses. When she loads up the wheel barrel with hay we are getting under foot, in fact we are not allowing her to walk without tugging on her pants legs, so she is now 'Kenneling us Up!" Our dog mom knows that command so we follow her into one of the kennels while mom feeds.

Mom has had a lot of phone calls from Orange County.  So it looks like we are heading for the Beach !! Oh boy!! Surf's up dude!!  I wonder if anyone will enter the surf contest in San Diego like  in the Maramaduke movie.  Of course, Marmaduke was a blonde or a Fawn.

We think she said someone down south wants to show us.  They have owned blue danes before.

If we all go south we can be in our own puppy class at the shows. The woman wanted to know if mom had any solid blue danes and there is one of us who only has about 3 white hairs on his chest. 

Another man wanted to know about ear cropping. Mom only cares that if we are cropped that the vet does a most excellent job. Our Great Grandmother and Grand Uncle were cropped. Their vet did all the after care, and their ears turned out excellent. It didn't take their ears a long time to stand up. Uncle Danny's stood up after 7 weeks, but Missy Blue Bayou's took a little longer because she liked to go outside and stick her head in the puddles after the lawn was watered. Our Great Grandpa is from a country where cropping isn't necessary to show. Either way, it doesn't matter as long as the cut is a long show cut, and that the vet does a good job.

I guess I should look up the rules on whether or not cropping is necessary for agility dogs, Companion Dogs and other types of events that the AKC sanctions.

It is getting cold here at night, so our house has a space heater just inside of the sliding door to keep us warm at night.  Of course we are still sleeping with our dog mom too.

Missy Blue Bayou.
