Dreaming of green grass, a longer coat for Quill and a successful date with Calvin to put puppies in her belly. I can't wait to reproduce Quill with those little pug nosed beauties. I just returned from participating in the whelping of another Australian Labradoodle. The puppies are overwhelmingly adorable! I can't wait to have Quill's. As soon as she has a date, sometime in April I hope, I'll post his picture. Spring is coming! Yes!
For the first time I had Quill clipped by a professional groomer. She cut her coat way too short. I was aghast! But it's only hair and will grow I keep telling myself. She still looks beautiful. Her coat now looks like golden brocade. You can't help stroking that soft glowing fleece.
