5 Weeks!

The puppies are now 5 weeks old and had their first outdoor adventure today.  We’ve also done our weekly photo shoot and photos of each of the puppies have been added to their web page (see “Puppies” page).  Here’s a peek at Mate at 5 weeks…

    1. Thank you to everyone who is patiently waiting for an announcement about available puppies from this litter. I should be able to make an announcement in the next two weeks. We’re very happy with the quality of the puppies in the litter which makes our decision difficult – which puppies will go to pet homes? Which puppies will go to show homes? A small factor that is important to us as breeders, but would not prevent a puppy from being a wonderful pet, may not show up until the puppy is 6 or 7 weeks of age, so we hesitate to make a final decision about puppies that are showing promise. That said, there may be no significant “fault”, but just subtle differences that force us to choose between one puppy and another. Those differences reveal themselves as the puppies mature and as they are able to stand and move properly. This litter was bred not for profit but as a continuation of our breeding program so making the correct choice in the puppy that we keep is important to us. For the remaining puppies, the most important thing to us, whether they go to pet or show homes, is that they will have safe and loving homes. I have wonderful relationships with the Talbot Hill families who have welcomed my beagles into my homes over the years and I look forward to new relationships with new families in the future.

    1. Thank you, Christine! This puppy will probably not be available as a pet. Please “Follow” my blog for an announcement about which puppies will be available as pets, probably around July 25. 🙂
