I have thought a LOT about the right theme for this litter's registered names. My other two litters have been based on my favorite things - my favorite actor (the Robert Redford litter) and my favorite TV show (Seinfeld One-Liners). Keeping with that overall idea, the theme of this litter is my favorite song - Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic" - it is very personal for me.
Since this litter is co-bred with my dear friend Judy Fletcher from Sawmill GSMDs (Judy bred River's mother, Oakley), every puppy will also have Sawmill at the end of their names. Here are the registered names - with a couple alternates in case people really don't like what I have chosen:
Fireside's Born Before the Wind v Sawmill - this name is already reserved
Fireside's Bonnie Boat v Sawmill
Fireside's Smell The Sea v Sawmill
Fireside's Feel the Sky v Sawmill
Fireside's Let Your Soul and Spirit Fly v Sawmill - this name is already reserved
Fireside's Sail into the Mysic v Sawmill - this name is already reserved
Fireside's When That Foghorn Blows v Sawmill - this name is already reserved
Fireside's Rock Your Gypsy Soul v Sawmill
Fireside's Back in the Days of Old v Sawmill
Fireside's Coming Home v Sawmill
Fireside's Younger than the Sun v Sawmill
The puppy homes I have chosen have all been notified. Unfortunately, there are a lot of great people who won't be getting a puppy this time. I'll decide where each puppy is going after the temperament test and conformation evaluation the weekend of January 24th. Puppies will be going to their homes between January 31 and February 8. As of right now, they will be spread across the east coast, as I always prefer to have them stay nearby, selfishly. A few will be in New England near Kristin, Mark, and Sally (Barrett's owners).
Here are some pictures from this week - we had some very special visitors this week, and we're going to have some more this weekend. They are all very graciously putting up with my germ-prevention protocol, so thank you!
