Shivaree Regina di Cuore means queen of hearts in Italian. Shivaree is my registration name for my puppies and the rest is Italian. We call her Ori and she is now 18 weeks. She weighs 21 pounds, so will likely be a big girl. She is almost as tall as my other girls, who are mostly middle to small in breed standard size. She got her first haircut last week so here are a couple photos.
So we had to retire our X-pen when Ori was able to leap over the edge. I have had a puppy who could climb over a pen, but Ori was just leaping high enough to grab hold of the top edge and pull herself over. This was an omen of things to come, as we have found her out in our front yard, meaning she has jumped over the edge of our porch. So now we install more wire!
With only two puppies to watch, we decided to let them play out in the dog yard. Mama Pesca and Auntie Giuditta helped them with some digging lessons. Everyone agreed there must be truffles in there!
Here is Trufas after his bath. Getting ready to meet his new family!
Two boys have gone to their new homes. Ezra (black collar boy) heads south to join a 5 1/2 year old boy. Big sister picked him up to take him home in the valley. He is named after Star Wars character.
Our red collar boy will live in Rimrock. He will join 2 Berger Picards in his new home. His new name is Trufas (Portuguese for truffle)
Here are the babies stacked (sort of) showing off how wonderful they look.
