It has been a while since I have been on here. Again, I haven't really rode much in the past while. I went out and rode my arabian/QH cross Smokey for the first time in 3 MONTHS. He did great. We lunged for about 15 minutes, then we rode for about 15 minutes. just long enough to make sure he remembered how to do it, lol. I didn't get any pictures of me riding but..
I have more puppy pictures!
All three puppies are 7 weeks old coming Monday! They have each been claimed, and they all have their names!! They will be going home at 8 weeks once they have their first set of shots. They are using the puppy pads like pros, and have gotten to where they eat dry puppy food easily, though they still get soft puppy food a couple times a day to make sure they get enough to eat. Hershey (momma dog) is still nursing them once a day, but it's hardly enough to even count as she has almost dried up all her milk. Which is good. I like it for my momma dogs to wean their puppies when they are ready. They each have their own unique personalities and everyone is soo excited to get them when they turn 8 weeks. :) All these pictures are from 4 weeks to today.
First is my puppy Nugget. I named her nugget, like chicken nugget (lol) because her little black ears remind me of them. Or maybe it's because all my small dogs have been named after food? (Hershey, skittles, and now Nugget, lol) Nugget is a bit of a scaredy-cat. If she gets around something she is unsure of, she backs up as far as she can and just stars at it. She loves to play and wrestle with her sibilings, but it takes her a while to get used to playing with a person. P3111545.jpg P3220151.jpg
Next is the only boy puppy, Monkey. Monkey is going to my Aunt who has 3 grandkids, so he is going to be very very loved. At first Monkey liked to play by himself, and didn't have much to do with his siblings or his humans. But in the last week he has learned that it is much funner to play with someone instead of being by himself all the time. He has also learned that toes are VERY fun to chew on!

Last, but not least is Miss Kay! Miss Kay goes to my mom as a birthday present from me. She was named after Miss Kay on the Duck Dynasty show that is on TV now. Miss Kay is the most playful pup of them all! She has started out being a playful pup and forever she will stay that way! She is also the largest of the puppies, and is very very fat, eating all the food she can get a hold of. She loves to play with her siblings, her humans, her toys, the blanket, any socks that may be in the floor, and she loves to chew on my recliner. But in the last week she had learned it is just as much fun to sit in someone's lap. :) P3111549.jpg P3220035.jpg
