Tandy to visit!

We get Tandy for the long weekend this month! We have moved and are in a new home so it will be different for all of us. I will post pictures and stories after that weekend! So excited to see him again and see how he will react to seeing us again!! We pick him up on the 18th!

See ya later buddy.




Well dropping of Tandy was not the worst part of it and i even maintained to be tearless for that part. Its being home now, looking around and having no friend following me! When that passes i will be so excited to hear how he is progressing and in a few months i can meet him again and his forever family, oh how proud i will be!

Farwell my puppy :(



Well it looks as though this will be the end of project puppy raising blog, our year of puppy raising is up and Tandy goes back in two days. All in all the project has accomplished all our goals and much more. The children are no longer afraid of dogs, we all understand animal behaviour better and well we fell in love with a hairy gentle beast named Tandy.

The year has been fun and exciting and at times challenging but i would not change or give it up for a second. We learned the ways of dog behaviour, met a lot of awesome people while out with him and through NSD and had the companionship and love of Tandy through it all. While a year is not long and we have lived all of our lives without the company of a dog it will be a strange and sad adjustment living without a silent and beautiful companion whose only basic requirements from us have been food, love and walks. Which in return have been totally easy to give. So I write this with tears streaming down my face knowing that Tandy will soon be with his forever family who will love and need him far more than we ever will and know that in my heart we as a family have done a great and selfless thing for someone else. ♥ Farewell my puppy!

Happy New Year!


So its a new year and Tandy was supposed to go back to the kennel tomorrow, but it has been delayed a few weeks. So now we have him for a couple more weeks til there is room for him. Nice that we have a few more days with him, but now we don't really know when the day will be. We had a nice new years party and Tandy was well loved by everyone here. Last year we had a party and had only had Tandy for three days! How far we have come!

2 weeks to go




Nothing new around here, we put up our xmas tree and Tandy does not bother with it. Ha, i was a bit worried what he would do but he is great so he does nothing to it. He has been having fun running around the yard like a maniac in the snow. I refuse to go to the dog park anymore since my daughter and i got bit there and since it is slippery and the last thing i need is to get slammed over by a dog.

We have 2weeks and 3days left with this lovely dog, just trying to enjoy every last second♥

A blanket of his own


One thing that we were told would be nice for Tandy to have at the kennel is his own blanket that can be consistant for him when he goes away on weekends during training with his own smells etc, and since Tandy chewed apart his blankets that he had before (he was good til about 9months and he started chewing them!) i thought i would buy one at the thrift store and applique his name on it!

Festive dog!
