Hearing Tests!!! (And seven week stack shots)

This has been a big week. On Friday, some puppy people came to look at the puppies and see how and where they were raised and also, to get an idea on what puppy might be theirs.  Then puppies, Karen, Jaime and I all travelled to Atascadero to Dr. Holstein's office to get hearing tests done.  Patti LaRose met us at the vet, we found out that all puppies are bilateral hearing. That was a huge relief.  Some, occasionally may suffer from selective hearing as many dalmatians do (at least that is what I have been told). Saturday, we will be performing the final temperament test on the puppies and there should not be any surprises there. Then, we will do final paperwork and contracts and finish determining who goes where (but we mostly know that now).

The seventh week is definitely bittersweet,  as I continue to socialize, clean and feed the puppies, I realize all I can do now is hope that the puppies make their future owners as happy as Carly and Henry have made me. On Saturday,  two puppies stay at Karen's house. On Tuesday, I drive back to Atascadero to drop Mr. Smith off and meet the Alaskan couple that are coming to pick him up. Between Wednesday and Thursday, Winnie, Wesson and Pound will all have new names and be going to their new homes, however, they will always be part of The Magnificent Seven.  Schofield is going to be a co-owned puppy we want to watch how she grows, she has the potential to be a show puppy.  Pepper is staying in Tulare to be watched and looked at as a show puppy when she is six months old.  And finally, there is Derringer the pick, she will be staying with Karen as a show puppy, however, she will spend time with Patti and also with me.

Here are some more photos from this week and some seven week stack photos.
