Some of our Previous Litters
In that last step of preperation, before the puppies go to their new homes, I like to capture them all in one last moment together. There is only one moment in their lives that they are eight weeks old, a photo not taken is a moment lost forever. I occasionally do other fun photos with my puppies, because I'm a camera junkie...
I hope to bring a smile to your face!
Buckles X Nathan Litter
Born December 23, 2017
This was the "Big Band" litter. This litter was this first time I bred back to Nathan. I always thought Buckles & Nathan were a good match for each other. I wasn't disappointed! We kept them both...Meet Trumpet & Bugle
Trumpet & Bugle: 8 Weeks Old
Trumpet 3 1/2 Weeks Old
Bugle 3 1/2 Weeks Old
Zappa X Bacchus Litter
Born June 17, 2016
This litter was the "Oop's" litter. Not an Oop's breeding...lol This litter was surgically implanted frozen semen. The Oop's part is, via ultra sound, they said the breeding didn't take...Oop's, they were wrong! Two lovely puppies were born, One Red and one Black/Tan. Meet Brittani & Dunkin
Lexi X Tigger Litter
Born April 2, 2015
This litter was Co-Bred by myself, Zack & Heather Helmer and Susan Carter. Yup, that's an International Truck in this picture. Our neighbor had this in his shed and was gracious enough to let us use it.
Can you find the " just a little Tigger"
These are just a few of the extra photos we took as the puppies grew. It was beautiful weather and I couldn't resist myself...
Zappa X Harvey Litter
Born April 7, 2014
This was our second International Litter. With Harvey being the sire, we decided to repeat the theme. This fabulous wall was located in Homer, Illinois. It was the remains of a building that burned down and left beautiful markings on the building that shared this wall.
Brinkley X Hollywood Litter
Born August 28, 2013
This beautiful old wagon is owned by a neighbor of ours. He was kind enough to let us use it. It fit right into our litter theme "Rodeo". The fields had already been harvested of their corn, but it shows our big sky's.
The making of a shot. It takes a lot of hands!
Baby Buckles fell asleep on the job!
Boots a couple days old
