Life journey of a dog

Evaluations

I took a few photos of the puppies getting evaluated last week, at Dr. Nancy’s house. Sharon drove from Toronto to also evaluate 2 other vizsla litters (the Lacko’s, up in the Thumb), so she had her hands full. She uses a technique called Puppy Puzzle, checking angulations, sprung hocks, how they hang, a whole lot of stuff that I couldn’t keep track of. She and Nancy were bantering back and forth all kinds of techno-speak that was way out of my comprehension. But the bottom line was they tested well, some better than others, on a scale of 1-10, most around 9’s and 8’s.

She also tested for temperament. How did they react when I (the familiar person) handed each one to her, the stranger, who craddled them in her arms? They all did well again, looking up at her almost immediately and giving a puppy lick.

Shoebox

I’m digging through the shoebox (or camera card) for puppy photos to upload. Here are a few you may not have seen yet:
