With the Fireweed going to seed, it is a sign that the first snow is six weeks away! The photo shows it has definitely gone to seed and it has been doing so for the last two weeks.
But, we have also had some beautiful, tranquil mornings and pleasant warm days.
It has been an interesting week working with the puppies and getting everything in place for the start of a new running season.
As you can see from the photos, the puppies are maturing quickly and are now weaned from Indigo. Indigo felt it was about time and was happy her feeding duties were over as their teeth are like needles.Indigo is back in the kennel, getting her shape back and getting ready to run.
The puppies are very active and devouring their food in a frenzy. This is a fun time, as they end up with plenty of food on themselves and then spend the next few minutes cleaning the remainder off each other.
There is a new video of them on the Puppy Page.
On Monday, Kira was introduced to the kennel and with her rounds out the balance of this years racing team.
Kira is a two year old Speed Leader that we need to proceed to the next step in a very competitive Sprint Circuit here in Quebec. She is from the kennel of Valerie & Laurent Gonsolin and is from France. Her father is the same father as Indy, one of the top breeders and race leaders of the Gonsolin Kennel.
I am very appreciative of Valerie & Laurent's trust in me to have such a great dog. There is more about her on the Profiles Page.
Last week the vet was here to vaccinate the dogs and complimented the kennel on how great the dogs looked.
I was very proud of that!
Until next week......
