Speedy arrivals

They’re here!!

Well Rocky decided enough was enough, and she didn’t need me!   I’d been in constant contact all day while at the show, checking in for any signs of impending labour…and there were none.

At 7:30 I called to see if I was safe to stop for dinner…and Chris said all was quiet on the home front.

As I left the restaurant the phone rang.

“Where are you?”

“Just leaving the restaurant”

“Well don’t kill  yourself getting home, but there is one brindle boy!”

From nesting to delivery in less than 1/2 an hour.  I’ve never seen that before.  In 3 hours, 5 puppies, 4 boys and a half-faced girl 🙂

Here are their first photos:

The theme I’m considering is “repeats” or “repetitions”.  For example one boy will be Sam – Yasashiikuma Play it Again, or I’m thinking “Echo” for the girl 🙂

Now that the theme is decided…suggestions are more than welcome!

What’s in a name?

We are officially into countdown mode with Rocky now, and Robyn is here to assist with the upcoming birth.

But I’ve run into a case of “Brain Drain” and can’t seem to come up with a theme for this litter that hasn’t been used before or actually has some good names associated with it.

So if anyone has any good suggestions, I”m open to hearing them!

Mom is Rocky aka Yasashiikuma Scirocco and Dad is Hunter – Merrymoon Firestorm.

Rocky came from a “Wind/Storm” litter (Eye of the Storm, Tornado Warning, La Mistral, Scirocco, & Zephyr).  The Fire theme was just done so that rules out any plays on “Firestorm”.

For Rocky’s first litter we used “Mountains”.

Other than CARS (and somehow “Volare” or “Impala” don’t tickle my fancy), I’m at a loss for a fun theme.

So have fun folks….. Can anyone come up with anything creative?

Too funny!!

What celebrity would your pet be? I'm Gwen Stefani! Find out at Dogster.com

This is Rocky’s!

Wow, your dog is Gwen Stefani!

Gwen Stefani
Style & Talent

A stuff-strutter and a trend-setter, Rocky is rock star Gwen Stefani!

There’s no doubt that Rocky was born to entertain—her vintage look mixed with her modern style keep her public (not to mention her owner) coming back for more. Her jaw-dropping looks may mean that she’s a common occurrence on the PetStar Magazine 50 Most Beautiful Pets list, but a player she is not: Rocky is as loyal as they come. Despite the amount of attention she receives from devoted fans, it’s not hard to see that underneath that well-groomed rock and roll coat, Rocky is, after all, just a girl.

However….People magazine says….

Gwen Stefani and her rock star husband Gavin Rossdale are expecting their second child, Rossdale’s father confirms to PEOPLE.

Is now an appropriate time to mention that Rocky and Hunter are expecting their second litter, due June 2nd?  😀

Yes, we have repeated the breeding we did last year of the Mountain Litter and puppies are due in 10 days.
