The pups had a wonderful time at the ICDCA Specialty weekend in OH.  They got to play with new friends, 9 1/2 week old Gemari puppies.



Here are some photos of the pups playing at the show.  Most of these photos were taken by our expert photographer, Sofie.

We had a request to get a family portrait of the pups with their parents.  Well...it wasn't as easy as it would seem.  We first let everyone loose in the backyard and couldn't get everyone in one shot.  So, then we tried putting Simba and Libby on leashes and letting the pups come to them.  We will be taking more photos tomorrow when we go to get the puppy aptitude test done.

The puppies are growing and starting to show their charming personalities.  They have even started playing, growling, and barking.  Our kids gave the puppies baby names: Rory (short for Aurora Borealis), Neeka (in honor of Neeko, a raccoon in Pocahontas), Pooh bear, and Yogi bear.

The pups now have their eyes open and have started learning how to walk.  They are comical as they wobble around.  The photos were taken without flash so as to not bother the babies' sensitive eyes.
