Well, THAT's Done!

All the pups have homes and by this time next week I'll have just one still at the house. (She's not leaving until the 28th so I get to spoil her rotten for a week!) Outside of the confusion this week with getting paperwork done and ferrying pups back and forth to the vet, groomer and their departure points, it hasn't been terrible. It HAS been a little more trying and stressful than normal because of the numbers AND because Cotton's pups all looked like clones of one pup, but all in all, a pretty good experience. For me, having Virginia Woofs' pups here was interesting because I got a chance to compare the two litters. Cotton's gang was and still is very pack oriented. It will take them a little longer to settle in at their new places... especially if there are no dogs around for them to buddy with (and get assurance from.) Kate's pups are more people oriented because there were less than half as many AND because I suspect JB's daughter spent a lot of time handling them. Plus, they were already uprooted once... when they were brought to me... and have that experience under their belts. Wish I could say I was going to miss the buggers. But truth be told, I can't wait to clean my bedroom and get the wet newspaper smell out! I've never been able to figure out why pups have to DIG in their water bowls and splash water all over the floor!

BUT in a month or two I'll be looking forward to the next litter. And that's probably a good thing 'cause it looks like that's about all the time I'm going to have....
