Alchmys Absolut Pleasure
(formally known as Pink)

Goes to live With Diana & Jay and Elly & Dancer.  Rush is going to live an amazing life as a beloved family member and an agility Poo.  Dancer is Rush's Auntie (and Nickel's Sister).  Both Elly and Dancer are already accomplished agility stars so Rush has some mighty big paws to follow.  If you'd like to learn more about this talented family you can follow this link:  Flying Poodles

Pink was chosen for Diana because he was a perfect small package made for agility.  He has the structure and temperament to fit the bill.  He is an energizer bunny with non stop energy and determination.  He's fearless, eager to work, strong toy and tug drive and athletic.  On top of that he's a snuggle bug :)

Nickel has a feeling something is up

Getting ready to leave... I think Nickel has something to say to Diana!

Ironically,  Pink Puppy has been the first to leave in every litter....

This Video says it all......

July 10 Day 60

Faces were shaved and Finally!  I am able to tell everyone which puppy their getting!  What a hard decision.  I had to keep reminding myself that I couldn't keep them all...Dang.  There's always a part of me that has a hard time believing that the time is coming to a close.  Here are pics of all the beautiful babies... oops... two don't have their faces shaved yet ;^)

Pink (he has a face somewhere under there!)

Robyn, Bob and I had the brilliant idea that we'd get the puppies sitting in a row for a final family picture.  ha ha ha.... It was a rodeo trying to round up the puppies.  At one point we tried to coral them in the blue tunnel but the faster they were shoved into one end they were escaping out the other.  

July 09 Day 59

t's been a ridiculous week since I last posted.  I have been incredibly busy working with the pups.  Up at 430 and to bed at 10pm.  Instead of writing, I've been working with the puppies getting them socialized and crate training them.  They have all been out on their own many times.  I've brought them to hardware stores, supermarkets, parks, etc.  They are all bold and confident making the work well worth while.  In addition puppy owners have been coming to the house to visit.

Finally had some hot enough weather to get the puppies playing with water but not warm enough for them to attempt swimming.  To be honest, I've never had success getting puppies to play in a kiddie pool but it was fun to watch them try to figure out the sprinkler and at least see that water is more than something to drink ;)

Little did they know... a Real water adventure was just around the corner.....

July 4 Day 54


Mica's sister, Rhodi came into 'season' so I took her for a few days.  It was a lot of fun to get to have her 'back home.'  She didn't skip a beat feeling at home with the Pack.  It was quite amazing to see her and Mica together.  If I didn't know better I'd never believe that they were siblings!
Later that evening Mica went to stay with his Auntie Cat.  We didn't want any Oopies  happening between the two.
That night she slept on the bed with the rest of the Gang.
