Emily's last moments with Blue, MistyTrails Bloodhounds.
The hard part of breeding is letting them go.... Novia is off to her new home. Thankfully we get to know about our new puppy owners, and she will live a wonderful life.
The snow made the Malahat Summit a dangerous trip over the mountain for children and puppies, so we took the safer alternate route, the ferry.
This way it was fun, with no snowy mountains to trek.
We are off to the airport to meet the new owners and a private plane.
Novia with her new family
Moca's Novia arrives at her home to meet the rest of the family. She has settled in very nicely.... I think they are going to keep her for sure...
Moxie meets her new owners who are VERY excited to take her to her new home!
Annie's new family
Annie will be a therapy dog, and now lives at a Lutheran church children's camp. This picture shows Thom and Annie out working around camp on the tractor.

Although this section is based on a whelping of an English Mastiff, it also contains good general whelping information on large-breed dogs. You can find more whelping information in the links above. The links below tell the story of Sassy, an English Mastiff. Sassy has a wonderful temperament. She loves humans and adores children. An all-around mild mannered, wonderful Mastiff, Sassy, however, is not the best mother toward her puppies. She is not rejecting them; she will nurse them when a human places them on her to feed, however she will not clean the pups or pay any attention to them. It is as if they are not her puppies. This litter is getting mom’s milk with major human interaction, manually giving each and every pup what they need. In return, the pups will be super socialized and will make remarkable pets, however the work involved is astounding. It takes one dedicated breeder to keep this situation healthy. Thankfully this litter has just that. Read the links below to get the full story. The pages within include a wealth of information that everyone can appreciate and benefit from.
