It's Mothers Day; so first let me say Happy Mother's day to all the Mom's out there. That means all you Dog Mom's as well. I spent yesterday after noon at Shoreline Poodles. I met Suzanne, the breeder last summer along with a wonderful litter. How lucky am I? I was invited to celebrate the first birthday of that litter. As well; several dogs from the previous litter who were celebrating their 2nd were in attendance. She is very pregnant at the moment; due in two weeks. This will be her third and final litter.
This is Angie; proud Momma of all the pups in attendance. How wonderful for a breeder to see all their pups at the age of one and two years old. Each family shared their stories with the others; it was a wonderful day. Every dog was very different; their lives all gone in different directions and yet they all came together to celebrate. This is how you do it; staying connected with the people who have taken home one of your puppies is another step in the "good" breeder standard.
This gal was celebrating her first birthday; what a cutie. I met these puppies at the age of 5 weeks and then again at 7 weeks, it was amazing seeing them all grown up.
This very big boy was there to celebrate his 2nd birthday with his younger brothers and sisters.
Just a sweetheart.
Another boy, this guy was celebrating his first.
These gals really came together; sisters but a year apart they were having a blast playing.
Another of the 1st year celebration pups.
Happy Mothers day to all of you wonderful Mothers. :)
