It's about time I posted some current information about our life and Labs! We are continually amazed at how quickly time passes. Our family is expecting a new little blessing any day now, and because of all of the wonder that is involved in welcoming a baby into the world, we have taken a short time off of breeding. This will enable us to concentrate fully on enjoying life with our new precious baby. We are planning to wait until spring of 2013 for our next litter of puppies. That way we can enjoy the first few months with our new little one, and then devote our full attention the needs and training of the puppies when the arrive.
We had quite an eventful summer! The very next day after the spring litter left to go to their new homes, I was running very "pregnantly" through our yard and tripped over a root. How embarrassing! I ended up breaking my foot, and spent 6 weeks in a walking cast. This was difficult to say the least. Then, with family vacations, the start of our homeschooling year, and progressing further along in pregnancy, things only intensified with regard to busyness and exhaustion. So needless to say, I am so thankful that we decided to take a short hiatus from puppy rearing and training!
We are anticipating the birth of our son at literally any moment now... My due date was officially on the 7th of October. We are so excited to be welcoming a new life into this world and into our family! We are also looking forward to the future when we will again be experiencing the miracle of life with a new litter of puppies in the spring!
