CMT's Pick A Puppy and Concorde Ridge Leonbergers

It has been so exciting!!! We were asked if we would  be part of CMT's new reality show Pick A Puppy.  This show centres around one family's search for the "perfect puppy."  The family lists 3 breeds they are interested in  learning more about. The program  then tracks  the family  as they visit breeders and learn more about each of their selected breeds.  Based on their  visits the family determines which  breed  is the "right fit" for them.  Everyone must wait and watch the show for the final choice!What a great venue for people to become educated about different breeds of dogs!
The production unit arrived at the farm on Sunday and was here for approx 3 hours- our Leos and  baby bergers had a great time! Whether our puppy is selected or not- I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with the prospective family and am appreciative of having the opportunity to share information about my favorite topic!!!!

Pick A Puppy is going to be aired in the fall on CMT

Addie's puppies- 4 weeks

This is a great time for puppy watching!! The puppies are starting to see each other as playmates rather than just pillows! There is lots of wrestling and "waddle" tag.

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Enough Already!

You can probably imagine why Addie is wanting to spend less time with her brood!!! Fortunately the puppies are becoming much  less reliant on her as a food source and more focused on their "smoothies"!

Our First Day Outside

It was a "scary" day for the puppies!!! The feel of the grass on baby berger paws was a bit over stimulating!! However after a quick drink from Mom all was good with the world!!!!

Puppy Smoothies Rule!

It was a big day for the puppies yesterday , at 3 weeks old,  they finally figured out that the content of the puppy dishes  was actually consumable and not strictly for playing in!
As you can see the puppy smoothies ( goats milk , yogurt and cottage cheese)were delicious to eat as well as to wear! Addie had a tasty time cleaning up her baby bergers!

Addie's litter week 2

The puppies continue  to grow and are becoming MUCH more vocal during "awake time", Addie nurses about every 3 hours and always comes to get me just before she goes in the whelping box- bottle in hand we both feed the little squirmers! Addie's food has been increased to 3 times her normal amount in order to keep up with milk production.  All the puppies' eyes and ears are open now so it is a whole new world for them!

Chardonnay ( Donny)July 26 1998- June 24,2010

It is a sad day here at the farm as we said good-bye to our beloved standard poodle Donny. Donny was a homebred and devoted to our family. He was our white shadow- accompanying our daughters jogging, waiting patiently in the barn with me on "foal watches",welcoming friends to our home and dutifully warning off strangers. He had beauty as well as brains and appeared in the very last Eaton's commercial.
He was kind and patient with the many puppies we have raised and he will be sadly missed. Donny you were not a good dog, you were a great one. I wish you warm spring days, rabbits to chase and long car rides with all the windows rolled down. I will see you at the Rainbow Bridge my friend.
