Isa/Skee breeding next week (The Thanksgiving Litter)

The lovely Isa and handsome Skee will "meet" through artificial
insemination next week. If we are successful, the puppies will
come just after Thanksgiving. Lucky for them, they will be whelped
in warm Orlando, Florida, and raised by Isa's co-owners, Stephen
and Ruth. Ruth plans to keep a little boy from this litter.
I will be helping at the whelp....already looking at flights.....and will
bring puppies to the Washington, D.C. area for placement when
they are 9 weeks old. That would mean the first week of February,
2015. The Florida repo vet is in place. A local breeder has offered
to help with temperament testing when the time comes. And I plan to
be very involved in mentoring Ruth and Stephen. I am confident that
Isa will be a great mom and a good whelper. The puppies should be
gorgeous. Pictures of both Isa and Skee are in previous posts.
Washington area families who would like to be considered for one of
these puppies should contact me to fill out an application at:

Shepherdstown Dog Fest August 2014

Seven Blue Run Porties participated in an event in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, which show cased rare breeds. Preparing to go down the red carpet were Honey Bear, Kojo (brown and therefore not a Blue Run dog), Yaya, Bacchus, Amber, Libra, Taffey, and Georgina. Our seven ranged in age from 7 months to 11 years in age and all behaved admirably. It was nice to have the participation of Blue Run owners in this event which was followed by a "meet and greet" in the park.
