Puppy available from "A" Litter

   BEAR and his brother  LICKITY SPLIT 


Both of these boys are absolutely charming and very striking with their black coats and blaze of white. 
Outgoing, curious and fun-loving they would fit well with any family as a companion, show dog or performance (agility) competitor.  Email us for more pictures and information: chaparral@sympatico.ca

BABY "BEAR" IS  JUST  RIGHT and shows great promise for the show ring.






 He is very attractive to look at, well balanced, excellent structure and movement, excellent natural tail and ears.

Keeping your cool


Kat's Pyr Shep, Nickel, keeping cool in front of the fan.

Happy Chew Crew

The dogs are a little restless today--too hot to go for a walk but they are still looking for something to do.   So I gave everybody a frozen marrow bone to chew on.   Annie, the eldest doesn't have many teeth left so I just scooped out a bit of marrow and some cut off some chunks of meat for her.  The youngest two, the black pups from the A Litter that are still here, had a great tuck-in with 'zest'.  This was their first "fresh" bone and I hope they don't get the runs.  They seem to have pretty strong guts.  There are plenty of old bones lying around but nothing beats fresh marrow and they all seemed content in the shade of the trees on the front yard. I always put down two extra bones.  Inevitably, at one point in time they all like to play musical bones and so if there are a couple of extras about there is no worrying at each other. 
The pyr shep that is boarding with us was the first to give up and walk away (maybe she doesn't get bones at home).  Old Teddy and the young pups finished up after an hour of gnawing.  Now, 3 hours later the rest of the crew are at the front door waiting to be let in.  It is suppertime so maybe they are looking for their supper as well.  Well, it gave me time to bake a cake and make a salad for dinner--for myself!

Hotdogs -- fun at the farm

A hot, hot week is forecast and the dogs are certainly enjoying their summer at the farm having free run on the property, going for early morning hikes and following me around with daily chores.  Always something new to discover along some pathway and when they tire there are lots of  trees that provide shade to lay under for their afternoon siestas. 



 
A dip in the pool a.k.a. "cement pond" is also a favorite with some of the dogs.  They don't care what colour the water is.  Cool is cool!
