Yesterday the puppies were very busy. We went to the vet and had a check up and first set of shots. Then we went to Ames while Kim had glassblowing and tried to find a park that wasn't flooded to play in. It took about an hour to find a nice dry park to play.
This is Princess Libby. Libby is the only puppy from this litter still looking for her forever family.

I uploaded about 100 pictures of the puppies playing at the park to our photo album. They are not labeled because it gets hard to tell them apart.
The puppies have been going out side for short periods of time because it is just soo hot, and we were only able to play at the park for about an hour because of the heat, so I thought it might be a good time to tell everybody a few tricks to help keep your puppy or dog cool.
My Favorite hot weather treat is a
soda bottle filled with water and then frozen.
Puppies and Dogs can lay next to or on top of the bottle to cool off, they sometimes will chew on the bottle as well.
A Frozen Damp or wet towel
By soaking a towel and then wringing it out and tossing it in the freezer (in a plastic bag or box) gives your pet a cooling blanket on the really hot days.
Some dogs just love to chew on Ice but others just like a really cold drink when it is super hot.
Of course our adults just love the AC and only go outside for short periods of time. We keep lots of cold fresh water available at all times and have been giving the grown ups and puppies dry food soaked in water to give them just a little extra hydration during this really hot weather.
Thank Goodness it is supposed to cool off a little next week.
If you have any questions about our puppies, please feel free to send us an email at
Have a great week and stay cool!
