|Momma and pups had a wonderful time outside!|
“Nature’s Charcuterie”The weather here finally cooperated suitably for the puppies to get outside. While a little tentative for the first two and a half minutes, they wandered over to the milk truck, aka Chanel who provided them with a little snack al fresco, despite their twenty-eight razor sharp teeth. After that, there was a huge free-for-all. The pups ran off in groups of two or three or sometimes solo. As their confidence grew, they explored the yard in ever-widening circles. They scaled rocks and little mounds of snow and chased one another around a big cedar tree in a seemingly endless game of tag. When they were ready to wind down a bit, a sampling of nature’s charcuterie followed. This consisted of sampling a variety of twigs with a chaser of a mouthful of snow.

Most of their neighbours, namely the pups in Faith’s litter departed for their forever homes over the weekend. We used the opportunity to give everyone a bit more room by putting the five boys in Faith’s whelping box along with Mr. Marsala who is leaving later in the week while the girls remained in Chanel’s quarters. An interesting division of labour ensued whereby Faith nursed all the boys and Chanel nursed all the girls. Goldens have big hearts.
As our time with the puppies draws to a close, we cherish every moment we’ve spent with them. We’ll miss those little faces peering up at us and occasionally whimpering to communicate the need for a cuddle. That said, we do 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 our private Facebook group: Regalgoldens Family Tree or on Instagram (#regalgoldensfamilytree).
That concludes this edition of “Puppy Tales”. See you next litter!
