The Empty Nest

Well, all good things must come to an end.  No more seeing this first thing in the morning....

Or snapping pictures like this......

Instead there is only this..... waiting to be cleaned and disassembled.

I like to send the pups off to their new homes with a little package from Mom.  They got some treats, some toys (compliments of my friend Kathy, isn't the foot something?) and a photo of Mom Lindor.
I made a cute little tag to wish them well. LOVE the paw punch!

The pups actually starting leaving last Thursday but I couldn't bear to stop posting pictures of them.
Three went to Guide Dogs in a reciprocal arrangement that pays for the donated Stud fee. Goodbye Miss Pink, Miss Violet and Lil' Red. I hope you have a good life and successful career perhaps helping a blind person to live independently.
Mr. Kingsley also left the same day but he was going to NSD so I will see him again.
The rest of the pups left Friday to start a new adventure with their NSD puppy raisers. I'm not too sad because I will see them in a couple weeks. They start obedience classes right away and they all stayed local so I will not be missing them for long.

Now, I can have my life back and catch up on all the stuff I didn't get to when I had my babies to tend to. Stay tuned as I will keep updating our Crop progress as things move forward. Thanks for listening.
