Monday December 16, 2013
We just found out we are expecting puppies!   We have been waiting a long time for this to happen.  We also have many families that have been
waiting along with us.  All the puppies will have loving homes and they are not even born yet!  Litter due to be whelped around the 11th of January.
We hope to get a rough idea of how many puppies around the 4th of January.  This will be a theme litter called the "Guardian Litter"  Many thanks to our
friends Bonnie and Bill, Lisa (my sister), Franky and Wendy's breeders.   
Three Guardian Angels make their way to Rainbow Bridge
January 6th & 7th, Wendy delivered her litter of 3 puppies 1 male 2 female (male was red brindle, both females were black).  Sadly all three
puppies were still born.  Very tragic loss..  All three puppies were taken to our state lab for necropsy to hopefully determine cause of death.   
Tentatively we are planing to do a repeat breeding of Franky to Wendy with puppies due in January of 2015.  We hope to  know more once
we have the results back from the state lab..  For now we are sadly dealing with this loss and caring for a very emotional mother.  We hope
and pray that our Three Guardian Angels never suffered and know how much we loved them.  
UPDATE Three Guardian Angels

Necropsy of all 3 puppies found them to be completely normal size and of normal physically.  No versus, no bacteria, no parasites.  It was
determined that they were dead long before Wendy started to whelp (labor)  Wendy has since then checked out to be also in excellent
condition.  Leaving us completely mystified and unbelievably sadden by this loss.  They were beautiful puppies and we do plan to try again
for a litter from Wendy.

rest... off he goes to show in the Hound Group.   Thank
you Mrs Bolus for recognizing and awarding Franky a
well deserved Group 3 placement.
