It is always hard to say goodbye. Every litter the time passes too quickly. We find at 8 weeks of age, the pups become little dogs. Then, it is apparent they are ready to travel to their new families to commence the family bond and training.
This last week was particularly interesting as my husband went on his bi-annual non profit Guatemala trip while I wo-maned the fort with 14 Barbet and 1 Chihuahua. It was hard work but fun as I devoted all my time with the pups and adults.
Cleo and George’s litter has been a treat. The combination of Polish/Canadian and Dutch/Finish Barbet lines were spectacular in their similarities. We are very thankful to Biscay Water Dogs in Canada and Quaciendas in Holland for Cleo and George. Below are their 8 week portraits along with what cities they will reside.
Gaston Georgii – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Garnet – Michigan
Georgia on my mind – Racine Wisconsin
Garrison Henry – Berkley, California
Gallifrey Mabel – Richmond, Virginia
Grey Stoke Gigi – Louisville, Kentucky
Gaia – Minneapolis, Minnesota
Galena – Texas
Lady Grantham Gaia – Indianapolis, Indiana
