Tour De Sand Spring With Nellie~#AmericanJourney

Tour De Sand Spring is featuring Nellie today for her American Journey from Chewy.com.

Nellie tour begins with a taste test from Chewy’s new line only sold through Chewy.com which is American Journey Just Turkey Jerky.

A nice size thick chunk of turkey jerky.

Product Description

American Journey Just Turkey Jerky is the ultimate high-protein dog treat. Made with 100% turkey from USA farms and no artificial ingredients or fillers, they’re sure to satisfy the most carnivorous appetite. While other jerkies and chews have a long list of ingredients that are chopped and then formed into jerky shapes, these treats are simply whole muscle white meat cuts of turkey sliced into strips. Just Turkey Jerky Dog Treats can be enjoyed by dogs at any stage of life and are terrific for training because they can be easily torn for multiple servings.

Hurry up woman and give me the jerky!

Key Benefits

Last week I got my order delivered from Chewy. Of course Gambler thought this big order was for him, you can watch the video to see for real.

The puppies had their first chewy photo shoot. They thought this nice big Chewy box made a nice bed.

Stay tuned to see the puppies use their new Kong tunnel and in a few weeks they will be trying out the Zuke’s Mini’s.

Andis Deshedding Tool~Thanks Oz And Andis

A while back – so this post is long over due (sorry Oz) I won a give away over at Oz The Terrier’s place. He was reviewing the Andis Deshedding tool. I couldn’t have won the contest at a better time as my gang was shedding big time.

Nellie was the biggest shedder so she got to test it out first. She has a thick curly double coat.

She has a thick curly double coat.

Glory thought she should check out the excitement.

The excitement is this Deshedding tool by Andis. Andis is actually a company from WI, and the owners of the place where I work know the owners of Andis so we get to use their clippers for shaving our surgery patients. We don’t have any of their other grooming tools so it was nice to get this and try it out.

Brushing Nellie.

It really gets down through her thick coat. Has a nice soft handle that is easy to grip and use.

Lots of hair removed.

Easy to remove the hair.

Hi mom look at at the hair I got rid of!

Even the cat thought she should have a try at it.

Brushing MK.

MK thinking about being sassy.

MK not thinking and really being sassy and biting me.

Lots of hair removed from MK.

The birds will enjoy this hair.

So thanks a lot Oz and Gina for this great tool, we really like it and it will come in handy with 3 adult dogs shedding twice a year.

And of course I couldn’t have a Monday Mischief post without any mischief now could I?

For the past two months it’s been Gambler and I each Wednesday and Friday for hunt test training. We get up, go train with our friends, I go to lunch while Gambler waits then we both go for ice cream. Can’t beat that can you? You all know we had a horrible day on Tuesday so I was in no mood to go training so that meant Gambler was taken away from his normal routine. Gambler knew what day it was and this is what I walked out to after letting him outside to go potty.

My bumper bag, bumpers and umbrella stand spread over the lawn with the bag all ripped up.

Umbrella stand. Which must of been connected to the bag.

Hi mom it’s Wednesday lets got train!

The whole gang got some bumpers thrown for them. Glory thought it was nice to take a break from raising her puppies and retrieve a couple of bumpers.

Gambler will be back to training this Wednesday so hopefully he doesn’t have to give me a big ole hint of which day it is!

Wise Old Grandma~Black And White Sunday

Wise Old Grandma was having a talk with the yellow puppy. She was giving her all kinds of great advice. Then the puppy started laughing at her…..I wonder what Nellie was telling her?

Nothing But Norman #107

 

 

 

 

Happy Saturday All!

Project16 - Copy - Copy - Copy

When Norman was near any water of course he was in it, he loved the water. He also loved to stroll around the banks and look for sticks and tree roots, he would find them and then either pick up the stick and bring it to you to throw or he would grab hold of the tree root and pull until he broke it off so he could bring it to you to throw. All he had on his mind was what he could get to bring you to throw. He loved to retrieve!

Swimming For Fun And Fitness~FitDog Friday

A much needed lake visit was in order yesterday so Gambler and Nellie went along for some swimming for fun and fitness. Even know it was just for fun as both dogs were retrieving their puller toy, jumping off the pier and just swimming around at their leisure they were burning calories and getting fit.

Puller fun.

They had some lily pad fun.

Ended with some pier jumping, even 10 3/4 old Nellie jumped off and had fun doing it.

Today Gambler and I are off training once again. He has missed it all week. John and Gambler will be going to another hunt test this weekend and let’s hope he passes so he can get his title and end his weekends for AKC hunt tests this year.

The puppies have a hugh thank you to give out! Yesterday they received their first overseas mail. The package came all the way from France and it came before the puppies went to their new home. It was from the one and only Easy Rider! He is such a caring guy and his staff is pretty great also mailing this stuff out!

 and as you can see Easy the black puppy is starting his disrespect early! That’s your favorite.

I would also like to thank each and everyone of you for reading my post yesterday and for all your sweet comments. I read them all and it really helped me out after this tragedy. You all are great and I’m glad to call you my friends!

From 9 Toys To 8

If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook you know I have been on cloud nine and been on a buying spree, I have been buying puppy toys when I’ve been out shopping and of course been picking up 9 one for each precious puppy to go to their new home with them. I made a joke that I had an addiction and needed help that I couldn’t stop buying 9 toys. As of Tuesday afternoon I have to stop buying 9 toys as it has went From 9 Toys To 8.

The little dog lay curled and did not rise
But slept the deeper as the ashes rose,
And found the people incomplete.

Richard Wilbur

This is a post I never dreamed that I would need to write and let me tell you it is one I never want to write again. Today’s post was suppose to be on the next phase of Where Are We At With Glory’s Breeding. Well today the next phase is moving on after a death of a 18 day old puppy that was growing good, eating good, moving good that showed no reason to pass away. The little girl was doing good in the morning and a few hours later when they were looked upon little red had passed away with no warning, no signs, no nothing, just laying peacefully sleeping never to awake again. This little girl never got to enjoy her first bout with mush food, never got to fight with it’s siblings, never to go go to a new home and live on for a long happy life. It’s live was cut short but for those short 18 days this little girl knew the love of it’s fur mom and human mom. It was hugged each day, handled each day, kissed each day and told it was loved each day hopefully all those days of love will be carried with her for the rest of her life up above in the big blue sky. Once again I truly believe things happen for a reason, there was a reason that I will never know why this puppy died, all I can think is that it happened now instead of later to save the new puppy buyers the heartache that I am going through right now, my heartache will fade but it will never go away.

Whoever said breeding is a piece of cake and all fun and games of playing with cute little fur balls all day long couldn’t be more wrong. Maybe it is a piece of cake for those who don’t take the time to research the breed, do the proper tests, get the proper titles, find the right stud dog that will complement your dog and hopefully produce great puppies and it doesn’t stop there. The time taken to make sure the pregnancy takes, and that the mother is getting the proper nutrition and exercise to be able to deliver a healthy litter without intervention from anyone. There is the stress of the delivery hoping that all goes well and your bitch and puppies thrive, there is the stress and worry that comes when a puppy(s) are born dead and then those that pass days or weeks after being born when you think you are out of the woods and then BAMB a kick in the face, a punch to the gut when you have to make that dreaded phone call to a potential puppy buyer that they will not be getting a puppy that they have watched grow for a short period, that they have named already, that they have bought toys for already and told their children that one day soon they will be getting a playmate. This is now the hardest time in a breeders career, I thought it was hard to call the people and let them know the last pregnancy didn’t take well let me tell you this was much harder as now there was a living being. Maybe this wouldn’t hurt so much if I wasn’t such a caring person and just in it for the money and what happens happens but that is not me nor will it ever be me. It’s not about the money, it’s about producing healthy strong dogs that will be there to give their owners many years of love and companionship.

God Speed little red may Gpa Norman take you under his paw and show you the ropes up and over the rainbow bridge. My sympathies to the puppy buyer.
