Finally, PUPPIES!!

So, we finally have puppies here at Forest King! Kyler whelped a beautiful litter of 4 girls on January 13th! All 4 are spoken for. 3 of the puppies are going to nice family hunting homes and the 4th is going to the dad's (Duke) owner, Carrie Syczylo's owner. Carrie will be campaigning this puppy on the field trial circuit, so hopefully we will be able to see her on occasion if we are out at trials! Here is Kyler with 2 day old puppies. "Mom, would you stop taking pictures of me, please!?"The red and white (or now more like, tan) puppies sleeping. Red puppy was actually nursing in her sleep, it was quite adorable!

Here are all the babies eating! This was taken at about 5 days old or so. They are much bigger now!

So far the yellow and white puppies are the tanks of the litter. They both surpass the biggest male puppy from the last litter we had (of the same breeding) They are little piggies! The pink puppy gained the pink collar as this was Rogue's collar last year and this puppy reminded us of her when she was born! She came out screaming! As I was helping Kyler to get the sac off of her head and clear her mouth and nose she was already yelling about it. She was basically still attached and was letting us know she was here! Time will tell if she becomes the next Rogue. The red puppy is quiet and peaceful so far. She is about the same size as the pink puppy. Even though smaller than their sisters by a few ounces, they are still bigger than the girls from last years litter, so I guess they are doing alright!

Rogue is doing well in New Mexico from what I hear. Chuck and Diane have started some ground work with her in preperation for her to be broke this summer. It apparantly took a little bit, but she is starting to get it. (she doesn't like to sit still!) She has been on a bunch of wild birds and apparantly also found a jack rabbit! Vizslas were bred to hunt fir and feather! So, the plan for her is to continue to train and then compete at the National Vizsla Association national field trial in Missouri in mid-March. We aren't sure yet if we are going to make the drive down or not. 21 hours each way with a 4 year old and a 5 month old might be tricky! We'll see!
