Villa, Villa, Villa!

Villa arrives next Thursday, February 28th! She's learning sit and down and touching a target. She's "litter" trained to be more manageable in the winter weather, she'll have her first vaccinations and a microchip. She'll still have "puppy breath". :-)
The photo below shows Villa (most likely on the left) with a brother and a sister at 3 weeks of age.


The next photo is Villa at 6 1/2 weeks of age. She looks like like a Labrador puppy should look at that age.

We're enjoying a few days of warm-ish and sunny weather. The lunar eclipse was even visible on Wednesday! Dave moved the rams to a concrete floored pen, so they're off the spongy bedding under the trees. Dandelions and thistles are starting to grow, ewes are getting round - spring must be coming!

We never saw the eclipse (Lowell Observatory was going to have a neat viewing throught their telescopes) as we had another snowstorm come through. It started the night of the eclispe and last until this morning. 12 new inches of snow. BUT...next week they say we're supposed to get into the 50s here. I'll have to put on mud-waders from melt!

The puppy is so cute. Maybe she'll bring spring with her for you and Dave, Franna!

I think I detect a little excitement about the new addition! How old will she be when you get her? Jackson has worked his way into our home and hearts; I'm hoping to take him to obedience class in March.
