Faith is in line to earn a trophy for “best mom”. At this point in time, most moms have long since abandoned the notion of nursing their pups due to each one’s 28 razor sharp teeth. Not this gal. She selflessly obliges them and is always at their beck and call. Once in their presence, they seem stuck to her like Velcro.
They were impervious to the cold and the wet snow which dotted their furry coats. It was as though Faith’s brood was training for the winter Olympics and you couldn’t find a happier group of youngsters. An epic outdoor festival from start to finish, the gang played chase, practised ski jumps, tobogganing or luge, went hiking and exploring or worked on the igloo that their mom was desperate to have. Ever the good sport, Faith spent the better part of her time providing the group with libation. The little ones were tireless as they raced around and even gave us a workout as we attempted to collect them to put everyone back in their whelping box. Once they were nestled in the warmth of their little shelter, it didn’t take long for everyone to drift off to sleep….including mom.
The Family Day long weekend afforded us many opportunities to spend time with each puppy – one on one. Not only have they bonded with their mom and their littermates, the pups relished every moment that they spent being fussed over and cuddled by their human admirers. They are all immensely curious about every little thing. There was no shortage of kissing, nibbling and cuddling and there’s nothing like the trust they demonstrate by falling asleep in our laps.
As our time with the puppies draws to a close, we cherish every moment we’ve spent with them and find comfort in knowing how much happiness they will bring to their new families. They have given us so many kisses and memories that we’ll treasure always.
So long, little ones. We wish you all the best in your journey, but most of all, we wish you love.
P.S. We’ll be looking for your picture postings on Instagram! #regalgoldensfamilytree
That concludes this edition of “Puppy Tales”. See you next litter!
