Domino is now Marsten.

Sweet little Domino was the last one to leave.  His new family recently lost their dalmatian Rasmen and they have been very sad ever since. Domino will be traveling to the state of Indiana where he will live with Rita his new mom and several human brothers and sisters. His new name is MARSTEN.  this name comes from the first letter of each family members name, he is their 4th dalmatian, Mars is the 4th planet and he was born in Mars Pa.  How cool is that???  So creative!  This little guy’s tail never stops wagging and he loves to give kisses.  With him being the last to go, my empty nest syndrome is starting to kick in. 🙁  I was very sad to see him go but I know that his new famly will love him very very much.

Next to leave was Pauline

We are so excited that Pauline, now known as Hope, will be staying in the breeding program since she is a UU and her new mom will be LaDonna!!! Hope will join her big brother Gage and big sister Gia (who is also Ryder’s grandmother). She will have a very exciting life living with the King family on King Mountain. Not only will she learn how to be a show dog, I am sure that at some point she will join Gage and Gia and start visiting nursing homes as she practices to become a therapy dog.

Good friends, Cara and David picked up their new spotted baby, Baby.  Her new name may be Tilda but the jury is still out on that.

Baby will have many playmates on their farm. There is Willow an English Mastiff, Beau, David’s first dog, Abraham the English Bulldog, a few cats, ducks, chickens just to name a few. Oh – did I mention that Cara and David are expecting twins!!!!!

6, 5, 4….

It has been a revolving door of puppy parents today 🙂 The day started when Helene and Terry arrived mid-morning to pick up their new baby Lexie.  They hit some snow on the way here from Warren PA so Lexie’s new name might be Snow, but that has yet to be decided.

Not long after Lexie was on her way to meet her big sister K.C., who is also a dalmatian, Eric and Barb (Nana) came to pick up Arthur, who will now be known as Grand. Eric and Heather have a big surprise for their family.  You see, their two boys do not know that they are getting a new puppy.  While Grand was being picked up, Heather and the boys were at home waiting to go on a tour of the local firehouse. Att he end of the tour, the Chief of the firehouse will bring out Grand to the boys. I can’t wait to see the video! 

Eric and Heather are a very active family and Grand will be going running with Heather daily, and at some point, camping and anywhere and everywhere else the family goes 🙂

Next to go was Angel.  Lin and her friend (sorry I forgot her name ) 🙁 Arrived from Michigan en route to Florida to pick up Angel.

Lin lost her dear boy Sparkey this past summer and been waiting patiently  to add this sweet spotted double patch girl to her family.

I feel like I have known Lin for many years, as we exchanged emails and phone calls as she tried to find her new spottedkid. Well Lin, that day has finally arrive and I hope you enjoy your dear angel.  Angel’s new name will be Cricket and if I remember correctly, Cricket comes from believing that Sparkey has been reincarnated.  Lin, if you are reading this, please correct me if I am wrong.
