Ditto/Chase Puppies Pupdates

All of the Ditchas have now found their new homes! :-)
Mr. Topper (a.k.a Tater) found a lovely show home with Kathleen McCombs in Waco, TX. Topper had been staying with Penni in New Mexico for the last 2 & 1/2 months until we could find him a home.The show season had ended for the year there, so he flew back here on Friday. He was a real trooper for his approximately 8 hour plane trip. I took him to the dog show in Alvarado after work on Saturday because Kathleen had expressed interest in seeing him. He went for a sleep over that night to see how he would do with her pack. Tooper made himself right at home and acted as if he had always lived there. Needless to say, Kathleen and her husband were smitten with Mr. Personality. I look forward to seeing him at shows and getting to watch how he grows up. 
All of the other puppies appear to be doing well in their new homes. They seem to have adjusted easily and are helping to heal hearts. Riley, Rango (f.k.a. Vance), Torch (f.k.a. Yancey) and Topper will be starting their show careers in the next few months.

Riley The Clinic Dog

Riley has been thoroughly enjoying her time up at the clinic with me. She gets loved on and spoiled by everyone! She also has the best time on our lunch breaks to the pet store or romping in the park or creek.
Riley will graduate from her puppy kindergarten class this coming Monday and will be receiving an AKC Star Puppy Certification. We have also been enjoying handling classes. She is an all around smart girl and is very willing to learn new things. It is hard not to be anything but in love with this little dog. She has totally stolen my heart and the hearts of those she meets. :-)

Riley making sure everything runs smoothly

Riley likes to be a back seat driver too :-)

Riley says "Being the boss is hard work!"

Riley also helps with the dishes :-)
