Advanced training has begun

As hard as it is to believe, two of Della's "C" puppies, Cyrano and Clementine, have turned in for advanced training already. I guess they just turn in early in South East Region. Cyrano's PR, Lybbi, was kind enough to get pictures of both pups at their turn in for me to share. Quite the handsome pair, if I do say so myself!

So I have now heard from all but 2 of Della's "G" puppies' PR's. They are, of course, scattered all over the country. However, this time there are actually 3 puppies staying in the Bay Area, making it easier to keep in touch, and I actually get to see them once in a while! :-) So, without further ado, here are the puppies' known locations:
Galen- (COC) Oakland, CA
Gaius- ?
Gordan- VI ?
Gillian II- Virginia
Gemma V- Panama City, FL
Gaylor II- San Jose, CA
Ginny II- Fremont, CA
Gypsy V- Colorado Springs, CO
Gilden- Evergreen, CO
Godwin- ? (but I have heard from her PR)

Galen (now called Ginger, so she can have a girl's name) came to visit over the weekend with her new family. I couldn't believe how much she has grown. She is almost as big as our Brittany already! I finally got to check out her mouth. She does indeed have a fair amount of overbite. Her new family is going to take her to a dental veterinary specialist in S.F. to take care of where her lower teeth are hitting her palate. She is doing great and is in good, loving hands.

Della has calmed down from her PPP and is doing great, already back to her pre-pregnancy weight and looking trim and muscular. I think that it really helps her physical recovery having Siri, our labradoodle, to romp and tussle with. Especially in the winter when it is too wet to go to the enclosed, grass (read MUD in the winter), dog park. It is hard to believe, but Della already has puppies turning in this month. Clementine and Cyrano, both in Florida, are turning in. My how time flies. I don't know about the pups in the other regions, but I do know that Cecil and Cressida, both in NWR, won't turn in until May. Still too soon for their PR's, but I know that Angie felt a little better about her turn in date when I told her how early SER turned in.

Not much else to say. I will be sure and let everyone know as soon as Della goes into heat again, or I hear more from her PR's.
