Our eight chocolate puppies out of Clue and Vaugo continue to thrive. While one male has clearly emerged as the "meatier package" (we call him "Chubs") and another boy as a less hefty member of the pack (i.e., "Gaucho"), for the most part the litter is fairly even in size distribution with one female challenging several of the boys in weight: affectionately we call her "Ziggy." We have, of course (because doing so is part of the fun :) temporarily named all of them-- two nearly identical males we call "Bartleby" and "Basil"; a male with a very discreet white star is, appropriately, "Starburns"; and, the other two females... "Penelope Clearwater" and "Margaux."
The week has been a fun one as puppy personalties are beginning to manifest, and the whelping box is bubbling with play growls and loud demands for nursing. Some of the pups are a bit zestier, squirming and talking when held, and others are more peaceful and silent. We look forward to watching their natural dispositions evolve and finding just the right homes for each temperament.
With the excellent parentage of Windancing's Zhivago and Small Paws Sweet Kahula, the litter is already displaying the hallmarks of English Labradors: heavy coat and bone, blocky heads, and thick tails: anyone of these pups will develop into beautiful adults reflective of their parents and ancestors-- proven producers of healthy, attractive and intelligent progeny. With the choices of two males and two females claimed, we have three males and one female as of yet to be placed in homes. For more detailed information about the parents, the pups, pedigrees, ancestry, and purchase details, please email us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com or call/text me, Eve Farrell, at 901.338.4321.
Please enjoy this slide show of the puppies. A few are pictured twice in order to illustrate profile. Next week's blog will contain individual, identifying pictures of each pup when, perhaps, they'll feel a bit more like standing for a fashion shoot. Best regards,
Eve and Christopher Farrell
Under the expert care of their mother Clue, our current litter of eight chocolate puppies out of Windancing's Zhivago seems to grow bigger by the hour. With the largest male weighing in at 2 pounds and the others close behind, the puppies trundle, feed, and sleep :) aggressively throughout the day.
We are giddily happy to report that the Clue x Vaugo litter whelped Sunday morning before last, and we have a litter of week-old beautiful puppies. Clue smoothly delivered in the middle of the night and has proven herself again an excellent mother. We have great hopes for this litter as we look to the quality of the ancestry, which includes lines from Keepsake, Kelleygreen, Endless Mtn,, Carowby, Borador, and Rocheby.
Both parents demonstrate very well the AKC standard of proper conformation, coat, expression, and temperament. Vaugo is a very laid-back, gentlemanly dog, and Clue, an affectionate and obedient companion.
Of the eight, two males and a female are spoken for already. If you are interested in pedigrees and a digital, picture brochure showing ancestry, please email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Check back at the end of the week for more up to date pictures. Regards, ef
My family got our first Labrador when I was eight. I wanted a cat. Despite my initial reluctance and deep desire for a feline, our first Labs-- Spike & Princess-- brought great happiness into our household and marked the beginning of my lifelong love for Labradors. Eventually I got my cat, but with 35 years of experience with this breed, I am grateful for the beauty and joy of my family's Labrador heritage, and thus, I dedicate this page to the very first ones of my childhood.
