Therapy puppy Stormy

Stormy's puppy raiser and Nancy took Stormy and her great aunt Bridget (Animal Assisted Therapy Dog with the Indiana Dept of Mental Health K9 Response Unit) to Purdue University's Day of Healing after the recent campus shooting.  Stormy was a hit, doing what Golden Retrievers do best.  She even made the local Channel 13 and 59 news.

8 weeks old

Outdoor fun
The pups are growing up fast, soon will need to separate the pair and launch them into the world.  They have had multiple outdoor adventures and have met numerous guests.  They even had their first gig as therapy pups, visiting a senior care center in east Indy.  The report was that they were quiet for their first car ride - good puppies.  At 8 weeks of age, Twister weighs 13 lbs 4 oz and Stormy weights 12 lbs 12 oz.

6 weeks old

Yesterday evening, a friend and I went over to Sandy's house to visit the pups.  They are engaging, outgoing, rambunctious puppies who are thoroughly enjoying life and all the attention they are getting.  Plans are for Riley to move back over to my house to see if she is willing to help nurse Juliette's pups since Juliette has not had adequate milk.  Sandy did a great job last week keeping the pups' weight gain under 1 1/2 lbs.  Twister weighs in at 9 lbs 7 oz and Stormy weighs 9 lbs 4 oz.
