Puppy News

We got an email this morning from the breeder at Taygold Kennels.

this is what Anne said:

“There are 2 females that I think would be suitable for you. They are both very people oriented, followed well, courageous , showing no fear of noise or sight objects, reacted well to a strange dog, showed good scenting ability, very biddable and willing to work well with people and showed no signs of stress. One is more energetic than the other.”

Looks like there is definitely a puppy for us!!

We will go meet them both on Saturday morning and then leave our girl with Anne and her dam, Abba, until Monday morning.

Since we are driving all the way to Ottawa, we have decided to do some touristy stuff and also give Rogue a chance to work in a new environment.

Stay tuned for some pictures and an introduction of our new addition.

New Puppy Pictures

abba’s puppies are now 4 weeks old!!

Three little golden retriever puppies. 1 is sitting, 1 is lying down and another one is walking around.

Two puppies sitting. One has it's back to the camera and the other is facing forward.

Six puppies in the enrichment area. You can see a tunnel, a dumbbell, a cement block, wood and various toys.

How much do you want to bet we end up getting the little girl with the pink collar who always has her back to the camera…

Anne says the puppies have opened their eyes and are beginning to walk around.

People can go visit the puppies starting June 14th, the temperament tests will be done on the 9th of July and then we can pick up our bundle of fur on the 12th.

Huib and I are getting really excited about the new addition. I wasn’t too sure what Huib really felt about having another dog, but now that Abba has had her puppies, he has begun to show some excitement about the arrival.

I will post more pictures and updates as they come.

Our Potential Puppy

I got an email from Anne at Taygold Kennels.

Abba had her puppies yesterday!!

Abba, a medium colour female golden retriever, lies with her 7 puppies who are just a few hours old.

As long as one of the females fits our needs and scores well on the temperament test, we will be getting our first breeding female in mid-July.

I will post more pictures and updates as I receive them.
