    It has been a busy day. Picked up Jake and gave him a good walk before taking him up to the breeder with us. He was good as gold for us, so glad he's known us for years so wasn't freaked out by it. I cried when we got him but the gentleman giving him up was very stoic.

    Finally got up to the breeder's home and spent a good hour and a half chatting with her, her hubby and her wonderful son, who spent last night sleeping in the puppy pen to help socialize the dogs. They also made sure to put down a towel we had left with them to get the littermates' scent on it, that is in Meadow's crate now and she has already taken a nap and voluntarily gone in it to sleep. :yes:

    She has a pen in the dining room where she can see into kitchen and living room, seems to work out well, the crate is inside the pen. She has gone outside and pee'd 3 times and did a poop as well. So far so good. She did follow Faith and Eli's lead just now, they pee'd so she did too. Good girl!!

    She had so much fun playing in the grass - that was new for her so the first steps were very tentative but then she really got into bunny hopping around - it was so cute. She has a wonderful energy level and temperament, we are just so pleased. She loves being held, but also exploring and farting around too.

    Breeder did do her ears, with tape and yarn to hold them up on her head. She thought it would last a good two weeks so I have time to get supplies and figure out how I'm going to do it.

    Here's a quick photo - more to come, just kinda tired right now. Faith and Eli don't know what to think! Meadow Day 1.jpg

    O my gosh, she's so gorgeous. It's going to be a lot of fun watching her explore the world.
    My girl;s ears are starting to creep up - need to read thru some threads to work out what to do - because using chewing gum with the two piggy girls around ain't going t o work.

    Sharon - Thank you for your little story,
    I think we have all been waiting to hear about your little Meadow.

    I can not help but think of Jake - how did he take
    the homecoming to your lovely breeder ?

    My heart just goes out to Jake and his owner. I am sure the transition was made a bit easier with you involved. What a wonderful and dedicated breeder!

    Meadow looks so inquisitive! What a darling little face and expression. When I brought Liam home he too took his lead from the other two! That certainly helps! Can’t wait to hear more and see more of little Meadow!

    So cute. It's a good thing there are no litters at Willow's breeder, Shetland puppies are nearly irresistible.
