The "Blue Litter" turned 8 weeks old, two days ago and to mark this monumental occasion I was up at 6:00 am. and I loaded all six puppies into travel crates and stacked them on the back seat of my truck. We were off to catch the ferry to the Lower Mainland. Fifteen minutes later we arrived at Duke Point and lined up for the 7:45 ferry sailing. I immediately jumped out and moved all six barking, howling, yelping puppies into the canopied box of the truck. It is hard to fathom the amount of noise that six 8 week old Aussie puppies can generate.
After the two hour sailing we drove straight to the animal hospital where the doctor prodded and poked, looked and listened before giving the litter a clean bill of health. A vaccination each, followed with an oral dewormer and we were headed back to the ferry arriving home in late afternoon.
It has been an interesting summer but with the exception of my son's wedding in August we have not left home. Marva's recovery from surgery and meeting the growing demands of the Aussie litter saw to it that not much else has been accomplished
In mid August, Lynn Rogers and "Booker" came for a visit and to see the puppies he sired. "Booker" looked, sniffed and then proceeded to ignore his offspring but appeared to be happy to see "Tilly" and myself.

Introducing the New Owners
Tilly says "I just don't care".
It is my hope that each of these puppies brings as much joy and love to their new families as Tilly and the puppies have brought to me.
