We got word from Ciara's breeder yesterday that Rica had her puppies yesterday (8/2/2022). She also had a litter of 5 - 2 males and 3 females. We're down on the list for one of the females, who will be ready to go home near the end of September. She'll be arranging visits so we can meet the pups in 5 weeks. Needless to say we're excited.

Mom - Rica von Hena-C

Dad - Brick von Hena-C (the breeder says this is his meerkat pose)

We'll have 3 red sable females in the running for us. It all seems really fitting as "Rica" was our top female when we first got Caleb, and Aodhán was a black and red who we lost on DH's birthday about 10 years ago. The new pup would be coming home right after his birthday.

My old gang is looking out for us.

what a lot of squeaks! I'll find them cuter a week or two from now. I bet Johanna will, too. But oh my, time to get the house in order...

They are a little less than an hour from us here in NH - about 35 miles away, but anywhere we go around here you have to go around a lake or mountain, unless you're on the highway.

We think they're pretty cute already and I'm sure they will only get cuter over the next few weeks.

Love the video and the squeals - have you thought about names yet or are you waiting to find out more about their personalities when you meet them?

SRM,

I've thought a little about names, but we want to wait until we meet the pups and find out about personalities before getting too deep into a name decision. The only thing I told DH was that I didn't want another "K" sounding name. Caleb and Ciara - it was getting to where I kept calling one of them the wrong name. rofl2

Well, I'm not sure avoiding a "K" sound is going to solve that problem. The last set and the current one have very different from one another names .... & it still goes wrong every once in a while.... What's kinda amusing is that they respond to the correct name & not the incorrect one... I've mistakenly called BTE 2 by BTY 2 and by BTE 1's name. ... phonetically they are not similar names but they all refer to GSDs... But they don't look that much like one another either... You may have hope. You are quite a bit younger than I am!

Regardless of how confused you get on the names, I'm looking forward to more puppy pictures!

Agis responds to Xerxes's name... whistling

(We mix up their names all the time, all three of them - occasionally I'll even say 'Toby! I mean Agis! I mean Neb! Xerxes!')

I cannot wait to see more of your pup though Johanna!
