Flyer pictures as he grows up

We've been growing out the tri male, Flyer, so I wanted to add a couple photos of him at 11 weeks. He is 10 1/4" at 11 weeks so considered safe for size.  His sire is NBISS GCH Syringa Treasure Trove x Lacycreek Clouds of Silk (GCH Belmark Shake Down ROM daughter).  Flyer may be available to a show home.  Photos are untouched and he has only been brushed out in these.  He is standing on the table without a leash (of course, I'm in front of the table with a treat lol).

Tri male above at 7 1/2 weeks.  Looking for a home that is interested in showing.  I think he will be a moderate male.

Some quick pictures



We had a couple nice days so the puppies got to do a little backyard exploring.  We have hawks here so they spend time in a double xpen with a cover over it.

Puppies are growing. 2 1/2 weeks old


I took this picture this morning - puppies at 2 1/2 weeks old.  Puppies are still just eating and sleeping with very little playing.  That will change within the week.  Eyes and ears are open now.  The two tris are smaller than the blues.  In this picture the two boys are  the middle left for tri male and the blue between the 2 tris in the center is also a male.  Woke up this morning to 3 of them out of the box so will have to fix that.

Litter born June 14th

We have a beautiful litter of 3 girls and 2 boys born on June 14th.  They are just a week old today.  We have 2 blue girls and a tri girl and a tri boy and a blue boy.  The sire of the litter is BISS GCH Syringa Treasure Trove aka "Loot".  He is a beautiful tri dog who won Best of Breed at the 2016 ASSA National and he also won stud dog at the Nationals.  We are so happy to have this litter by him.



The dam of the litter is a beautiful blue merle, Lacycreeks Clouds of Silk,  aka Sil who is sired by BISS GCh Belmark Shake Down.  She is a very sweet, calm girl with striking blue coloring.


Puppy pictures coming soon!

New Puppies - all sold

Do you see the cute little bi blue female with the blue eye on my front page?  I called her Sophie as a puppy.  Well Sophie went to Montana to live with Sandra and is now known as Liesl.  She grew up into a smart little agility girl who just had a litter of 4 puppies!  Some of these puppies will be available from Sandra in early June.

This handsome boy is Ch Mejimo Chip Off The Old Block, and is the sire of the litter.





Liesl is shown here with her 4 puppies, 2 bi black females, 1 bi blue male, and 1 blue merle male. I will try and get a better picture of her later.  Will know later which puppies are available to companion homes.

7 Weeks Old on Sunday! We still have some available!

Puppies are 7 weeks old on Sunday!  There are still a bi blue male available, a bi black male available and a bi-black female available.


Above is the bi blue male.  He would make a great performance dog and possible show dog.  Fabulous temperament and very steady.  He is 8 1/4" at 7 weeks.





The  bi black male above is very striking with a fabulous temperament, steady, and sweet too.  He is 8" at 7 weeks. Really hard to get a good picture of him, but it was a dark, cloudy day so we did the best we could.


 This little girl is a real love.  She's got spunk too!  Guessing she will be on the smaller to medium size.  Loves to give kisses.  She is 7 1/4" at 7 weeks.






The bi blue female has gone home with co-breeder of the litter, Dawn, and is settling in at home in Fox Island.  They named her Ellie and here is a picture of her with the lovely Olivia.  They are both adorable!


This beautiful bi black boy went home with Lainey and her husband in Sammamish  (and their mini Aussie!!).  Looks like he has settled right in with the family.

Wanted to share that the sire of this litter, BISS Grd Ch Sea Haven Etched in Silver, ROM, was the 2015 ASSA Sire of the Year!  "Sketch" has 17 American Champion offspring and many Canadian Champion offspring.

Puppies are six  weeks old today!!  I visited them yesterday and they are  so much fun.  I've attached a picture of two males that we are going to place.  Aren't they adorable!  The plain faced male is super sweet and carries himself like he's all that.  He doesn't have white on his face, but he has a full collar and full white legs so he's very flashy.  The male with the blaze is the alpha dog in the litter.  He's a bit more independent in nature but is still a sweetie.  He has full markings also and will have a white pinstripe through the center of his face when mature.  These boys have the blackest coats!  Just love them both.

Happy New Year!!  Puppies are almost 5 weeks (1/3) so I thought I'd add a photo.  Their visit is almost over and I will miss watching them play and develop.  A couple have figured out what the paper is supposed to be used for and are getting pretty good.  It's been too cold to even go outside for a short visit (30 degrees or less) so they haven't gotten to explore as much.  Thankfully the weather is suppose to warm up.

The two girls are on the left.




I will attempt to add a video below.
