June, 6th, 2012: News from our Border-”children”
Ok, our puppies are now 8 weeks of age and we didn’t took new pictures of a long time, because we have a litter of Rough Collies, too and all of them need our full attention.
ur border pups are gorgeous. Around the 8th week there is a lot to do: vaccination on June 18th, examination of the eyes a day later and on June 20th control by the club. The puppies did very well and the results of the eye examintion were good, too.
After 4 months without a dog, Carola Lampe, who with her family always had rough collies, would love to have a border collie. They were very often here to watch the development of the "children". They supported us a lot and we are very grateful - Little Sunny (Rosegarden Always My Sunnyboy) as well thus he knew his people already. Since today he has been rehearsing the revolt in the house of Lampe. Thanks Carola and Klaus for spending so much times with us and the puppies in so many shops and different places. All the luck of the world with Sunny!
Little "Rosi" (Rosegarden African Summer) will move to the Kammacher familiy on friday. They had a border mix before but Lotta passed away at the age of 15 years. Especially the kids are not used living without a dog and therefore they all are very excited.
Well and after 8 weeks thinking about little Rosegarden Amigo Mojito will move to Deryn. Deryn would like to show him and of course doing Agility, like she does with Sunshine. It was a hard decision because she would like to keep both, because Rosegarden Absinth Sunset is doing very well.
I would like to mention, that this 8 weeks was a lucky time for us, that we enjoyed every day - even the trips were pure fun. No negative comments, all people loved our puppies and it was ok for them, that Deryn pushed the bags with the food out of the shelves so that the babies got used to the noises. Just perfect.
26.05.2012: Another sunny weekend, where nobody had to work.
Friday: Manicure and pedicure for the little ones,
Saturday: Descovery trip on the terrace - enjoying the fresh air, getting to know the cats, feeling the gras under the paws and a lot of new impressions. Food tastes better outside as well.
While a marching band passed our home, we fell asleep.
Sunday we relaxed, because now we are already pros in the outside. We spent the day eating, playing, sleeping...
..we bit into feet and legs, destroyed shoes, annoyed our mother and stole Deryns handy case and learned biting into feet and legs causes screams and incomprehension by the bitten. Destroying shoes isn’t easy and takes too much time. That is why it is boring and we have postponed it to a later date.
Annoying our mother is fun, she got stamina. But also has a stamina. Nothing is too much for her and she plays a lot with us, takes care of us and brings us all together again when we are too far away. In addition, she warned us that steeling the handy case might be no good idea. However, Deryn could not have left it on the lawn just because she wanted to take photos. But don’t worry, the case is still alive and so are we.
A day open air is great, a night in the warm house unbeatable.
Then came monday and we where weighed again. Now we weigh between 2800g and 3100g and everybody is satisfied with that. We were not satisfied getting another disgusting worm cure - already the third and certainly not the last. However we were told that when growing up it will become less. So we licked it up quickly - can’t take so long growing up.

Since saturday (May 12th), our puppies are fed with beef tartar and they learned immediately how delicious meat is. The whelping box now is surrounded with a play ground, so that the puppies can discover the world.
And after a meal with beef tartar we agree to a photoshooting together.
The girls are fed up too and ready for a posing together.

He is preceded by the development of siblings.
