|We love Spring and the great outdoors!|
Whenever the gang anticipates that it’s time to go outside, they’re ready to rumble! Like a bull released from its pen at the rodeo, the little puppies spilled out onto the living room floor, just steps away from the door leading to the yard. There’s no time to lose. The weather was great and there was so much to do….so many new adventures, so many games to be played. After the big squeeze through the little opening, they were outside and they scattered in many different directions. Some headed straight for the rock garden while others tore across the winter-weary lawn at top speed. What made some of these outings so much more enjoyable was that they were shared with Sierra’s litter as one giant play date! Bailey was her playful self and engaged all of the pups in various forms of play. Sierra shuffled around with a few pups in tow and even their “Aunt Whitney” joined in on the fun albeit the little ones were confused by Whitney as she did not appear to be equipped with a milk bar.
Mr. Curry is the poster child for the term “recidivism” as a repeat offender with multiple escapes from the whelping box to his credit. We observed Bailey on one or two occasions knocking out a slat as she jostled her way into the box. This allowed Mr. Curry to launch his body over the top and out into the living room. But what to do with this newfound freedom? The poor little guy propped himself up against the opening and whimpered to be let back inside!
The gang experienced their first car ride when they made the trip to the veterinarian for their check-ups. It wasn’t very long before the chatter in the back of the vehicle swelled up to make it impossible to carry on a phone conversation. Miraculously, once Bruno Mars came on the radio, the group settled right down to enjoy the rest of the ride. Everyone was well-behaved in the clinic and very brave as they were poked and prodded, received their shots and their “diplomas” for passing.
As our time with the puppies draws to a close, we reflect with mixed feelings on the time we’ve spent with them but find comfort in knowing how much happiness they will bring to their new families. We will treasure the memories and the kisses 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
