“Love is in the air everywhere I look around
Love is in the air every sight and every sound
And I don’t know if I’m being foolish
Don’t know if I’m being wise
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I look in your eyes.”
(George Young and Harry Vanda)
Spring is here, and so are PUPPIES! Helping Paws welcomed two litters of pups this month…Chester x Karma, and Lambeau x Mare.
Making their second blog appearance, the Chester x Karma Labrador Retriever puppies are now three weeks old. The three girls and two boys, the Game, or G, litter, are thriving. Karma is on loan to Helping Paws from The Captain’s Labradors. The sire for this litter is Chester, also of The Captain’s Labradors. Much appreciation to Rob and Denise Babcock for their generous support of Helping Paws! Our caretaker family is the Slavins: Darcy and Joe, with daughters Madalyn, Emma and Sophie. What a great job they are doing as first-time caretakers! The puppy names, chosen by Madalyn, Emma and Sophie, are Bruno, Daisy, Duke, Lily and Dakota. Great job, girls!
Arriving two days early on May 19, the seven Lambeau x Mare Golden Retriever puppies are already showing their moxie, gaining weight and investigating Mom. This is the Hero, or H, litter – four boys and three girls. Their litter names are Braveheart, Loyalla, Honor, Charming, Trusty, Love and Patience, all characteristics of being a hero. Katy Shannon and family are the caretaker home; Katy trained Aida, and then decided to become a caretaker home. Lambeau’s owner Jessie Douglas has generously donated Lambeau as stud once again – thank you, Jessie!
