Meet our new Nappyroots families….well some have been around seeing this isn’t their first Barbet pup from us All our ‘F’ litter pups went to some amazing homes and are all settling in very nicely. Some stayed in Ontario and others travelled to Alberta and British Columbia but overall everyone is living in Canada!
Introducing our Nappyroots F litter and wonderful owners….
First to go home was Fromage, now Kona, who lives not too far from us in Orangeville with the Grist family. She was our grey collared girl. The Grist family had been waiting a couple years to be able to add a Barbet pup to their family.
Then we had Fugeela, now Nessie, join her half brother Louis (Nappyroots Aloysius from our first ever Barbet litter) with Gail & Jim in Fonthill. Nessie was our purple collared girl and news is her brother Louis is quite taken by her!!!
Next we had our Alberta bound puppy Franco, now Guinness, fly with his new owners David and Megan who also waited a couple of years to add a Barbet to their lives. Guinness was our blue collared boy and he flew like a champ not making a peep on the plane This guy will be David’s fishing and hunting buddy in the future.
Our black collared girl Fatima, now Scout, took a road trip all the way to Ottawa with Alex and Michele. This little girl will be spending lots of time with Barbet Roo (our Nappyroots Brin d’Amour) as Michele is sisters with Roo’s owner, Renee. Can’t wait to see photos of this girl dock diving in the future at the family cottage.
Our two British Columbia bound boys both left with Kate and Geoff. Tan collared boy Fresh Prince, now Henri, will be living with Kate & Geoff and his half sister Edith (Nappyroots Cooey) on the island. Our burgundy collared boy Frere Jacques, now Jib, was graciously taken for Sharon who lives on the mainland and is neighbours with one of our already BC pups, Nappyroots Bilko, in Kamloops.
Dropping off Jib with his new mom Sharon at the Vancouver airport. The two boys were smooth travellers!
Lastly to leave was our white collared girl Fara, who is now Scarlett, and she is actually only about 20 minutes away from us in Kitchener and will be living with the Jones family. Scarlett already visited us the weekend before last and we enjoyed the Elmira Maple Syrup festival with her and the family!!! Look out for Scarlett in future months in the show ring….this pup can strut her stuff
Well it’s been an empty nest here at the homestead for two weeks now. Momma Madzia has kept herself busy enjoying the warm weather in the backyard and doing some retriever training with us at the reservoir. She’s pretty happy to have us all to herself, although she has periodically wanted to check in on the puppy room to see what’s going on. She’s adjusted quite well to her little ones going to their new homes. I think I’m taking it harder then her. Here are some photos of the pups the last couple of days with us while they were here getting all cleaned up for their new homes and us saying ‘see you later’ to the little ones.
