Brown puppies available

 These two beautiful brown puppies are coming to the Washington D.C. area for placement in July.

They are offspring of CH Blue Run's Resolved to Bring Joy and GCH Aquafortis Lorenzo Alexander Robel. Both are potential show prospects and need to go to homes willing to keep them intact for showing and breeding. If you are in the greater Washington D.C. area looking for a spectacular PWD, contact me to see if we are a good match. (

Mando at rest

One reason people like this breed is their
sense of humor.  Here is Mando sleeping off a
heavy day of play. Just looking at him makes
you want to laugh. Mando is and will remain an
intact boy, like most Blue Run boys. It's better
for their health and longevity.

Four families had a puppy play date reunion
this morning. I place locally so that the families
get to know one another and help each other out.
"It takes a village" to raise a Portuguese Water Dog!

Champion Blue Run's Resolved to Bring Joy (Luana)

I'm so pleased that Luana has completed her championship. 
She is being bred this month and we expect a lovely litter of
brown puppies in May.

This is Raven, a 5 month old puppy. I love the name! She is
a daughter of my big boy Nico and my little girl Diamond. I
can see repeating this breeding. We'll see how they look at a year.

Blue Runs Resolved to Bring Joy is a new Champion!

It isn't easy finishing a piebald Porty as many judges can't get past 
all that white in the coat. But Luana has finished her championship
 with 3 major wins and will be bred this spring when she deigns to
 come into season. All the puppies will be brown and wavy. Most
puppies will go to potential show/breeding homes local to
 Farmingdale,N.J. or local to Rockville, MD, exclusively.

Dia ready to get some points!

 Blue Run's Yuletide Diamante begins her show career this weekend

in Ocala, Florida. She looks pretty spectacular after her grooming by 

her handler, Liz Volz.

Naia is in the queue to be bred

My my my. What a pretty dog! Naia is going to be bred on her next heat cycle to lovely brown Renzi. Won't those be some pretty pups? Local placements to families open to having a show/breeding prospect and someone home most of the time, no toddlers in the home, will be the lucky owners of her puppies next spring.

Is there anything cuter than this face?

Nico can be a daddy now

Now that we have a test for Puppy Eye Syndrome, I can safely use my lovely boy
Nico, for breeding.  
Yes, his head really is that big!

Happy Birthday Taylor


Part of the Blue Run philosophy is that
 each dog's health and longevity are important to my breeding program and future breeding decisions. Here is Taylor checking in on her 11th birthday to let us know she is healthy and happy.

No August puppies available after all

I am so disappointed that Kali will not have a litter in August
as we had hoped. There are so many people hoping for a Blue
Run puppy this year and I had hoped for a nice big litter. No such
luck. As feared, God is laughing at my "plans".
