Puppies are Here :))

We are so excited about this next crop of Vispera Aussies. This is a litter I have dreamed about for a few years and they are finally here :) Rayne started whelping Friday night about 9-10 I could see that look in her eye. So, I pulled up the recliner and slept beside the my girl for the night. By Saturday morning things were happening! At noon the cutest little blue girl was born, then about an hour later the boy that I instantly fell in love with came into this world. Then it got interesting, about an hour later the third water broke but no puppy, I only waited a few minutes before getting worried and calling the vet, we made the decision to get Rayne down there and try to get the last puppy out. I was very scared but with the expert work of our vet we safely delivered a very big healthy girl! Another gorgeous blue girl :) So, I have 3 beautiful babies to love and cuddle....

Puppies are on the way!

I couldn't be more excited to welcome the next batch of Vispera pups at the end of April. Rayne x Derby pups are well on their way, I can tell by Rayne's ever expanding waistline. As well Rayne has experienced some morning sickness but luckily her appetite is strong and she is willing to eat anything I can stick under her nose. So she is now on 2 meals a day with added supplements.

We have some truly great homes lined up for these pups that I am so excited about.

Going to try the durawhelp whelping box this time around (ordered it last night) hoping it will work well for my new pups.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas ~ I sure did :) Time with family is most important and we had a wonderful few days. Above is a picture of Camryn, she was a blast this Christmas......

We have had some very unseasonable temperatures this winter and it continues into January... Yesterday was +9!! That is crazy to me.....I hear though that the cold weather is just around the corner next week...
I'm off work all next week so going to concentrate on my basement and get that organized. I want to make a sewing corner as well as a photography corner. Lots to organize but will be nice when it's all done.
Doing tons with the dogs ~ Rayne is continuing training in agility and I am so proud of her. She is a smart little lass and I'm hoping June she will be ready to enter our first trial together. I refuse to enter a trial until I can trust that my dog is confident enough.... too many bad things can happen and then need to be fixed by rushing. So we are just gonna keep training away and having fun. I constantly remind my students that the dogs did not choose to do agility, yes they enjoy it but they don't choose to pack up and drive to the arena so whatever they give us is all a bonus. So, even though I can get frustrated I always keep that mantra playing through my head and it keeps me focused on having fun with my crew!

Everyone have a great day!

Not only are we moving into December but our family is moving back into town this weekend. After 2 wonderful years on the acreage we decided a flip was in order ~ We sold our house and are moving back into town with plans to rebuild on another piece of land in the next year or two.
I'm looking forward to being in town and avoiding the winter driving across the highways, so far the weather has been very mild but I'm sure it won't stay like that till April....
So, I will be very happy next week when I'm all settled in our new home.

Headed to Cold Lake AB this past weekend for an agility fun day. Was great to get away with great friends and work the dogs. Rayne did pretty good ~ She has lots and lots of learning to do yet but I see so much promise in her......

Meg had an interesting day as Camryn decided she wanted to be out on course and of course Meg was called into duty. Meg was a trooper checking in with me after Camryn gave each command.... I felt like a puppet master ~ directing Camryn what obstacle to go to next and then making sure Meg followed...

I hope that Camryn stays in the doggie world and we can travel to many doggie events together....

Still waiting for my little blue doggie to come into season so I can get my Walker puppy.... dreaming everynight about the new additions :)

Another weekend of trialing :))

Meg was good as gold again... Competing in 6 runs and qualifying in 5 out of them ~ earning 3 titles this past weekend!! Now if she would only listen to me and come into season........ I am eagerly awaiting as I'm so excited for my next pup! And we have so many great homes lined up.......

Rayne has been participating in agility classes and doing amazing! She has impressed me so much and reminds me of her daddy in every way. She is smart and quick and is loving all the equipment. I'm very excited about our competition career together...

Spent last week packing for our big move back into the city, I'm sure not going to miss the drive in on the icy roads. Will really like not having to plan an extra 1/2 hour for the drive.... but will miss country living, but my hubby already has our next house built picked out so I don't anticipate we will not be in the city long.

Stay warm and have some hot chocolate :)

Agility Trialing Again!!

Well, after 2 years away from agility (doing a few demo's and practices here and there) Meg and I entered a full weekend of trialing. She is such a good girl, qualifying in almost everything and always trying her heart out :) I love this little dog so much. Looking forward to more trialing with my little blue doggie.

I find myself reflecting alot about Ice. I miss him so much ~ 7 years was not near long enough with him........ I think of my dogs now and truly know that every day is a blessing with them cause you just never know.......

Still haven't found a house ~ who knew there wouldn't be anything available!! Good thing the couple purchasing our home aren't in a hurry!!

Enjoy the fall peeps, days are going by fast........

Seize YOUR day
