Rick, I do not disagree with you but I have had enough of his nonsense, and I make no apologies for it.

Differences of opinion shouldn't involve rudeness, Steve. I accepted your earlier apology for not believing although there was no need for it. One size doesn't fit all.

King Brown..I'm glad you were able to straighten the dog out no matter the technique

Now, to kick-start a return to topic..

It's a little blurry but, here’s a picture from a good number of yrs ago that puts a pretty wide smile on my face. This is a photo of my wife when she had been a young bride for all of about two months. She is lovingly holding the Shorthair that she bought for me as a wedding gift a week or two after we were married. Pups name was Tessa. We miss Tess every minute of every day.

..sure wish I was a little more camera happy back then - pics are few.

Thank God for nap time!! The pups are 6 weeks old now, a lot of fun, but a lot of work--good thing Debbie is retired. I get swarmed when I sit out with them. the hem on my bath robe is in tatters, as I generally put them out at 6:00am when I get up.
I will probably keep the tri-color female, Willow(Willie), but that little all white female in the foreground, Doodle, keeps pulling at the old heart strings, she was the runt. Dare I keep 2, or should I say would I be foolish enough to keep 2.
Dean, you will soon have this dilemma.

I sure hope so.... she still hasn't come into heat.

I think I need to get her together with dogs in heat and she should immediately follow suit.

I have a tendency to pick pups showing independent confidence absent obnoxious dominance. Reserved boldness, if you will. Prey drive & natural ability in the field? Breeding does that work for you.

The pup you are considering keeping as a second (in the foreground) appears separate from the pack..to me, that's a tell. (maybe I'm nuts)

The reason a dog has so many friends,he wags his tail instead of his tongue. J.J.

two puppies at once

it would be interesting to hear from folks that have done it- rather than hijack the cute puppy thread after getting it back on line - i'll post the question in a conversation

Dean, I thought you had already bred Grace and that she was due in Sept--sorry, don't know why I thought that.
Rick, you are ,as always, so right--but I still might not be able to help myself
