I finally made up my mind one day while tracking training. The Labradors hauled me hither and yon, jerked my shoulder on track and off, and took me full bore stumbling down the track. Clifford pulls into the harness and goes at a nice pace, fast walk/slow jog for me. As I'm looking at starting my 7th decade next month, I'm going to indulge myself a little and go with a Welsh Springer!
Not too long after deciding, I found out that one of my favorite little Welshie gals was bred to Clifford's sire, and we're now on the puppy list! Today we found out that there will be puppies - Yeaaaaa!!! Puppies are due July 9th.
So, here's to crossing fingers for at least two little girlie Welshies from Tatum - Ch. Trystyn's Statesman Lakota Red, RN, NAJ, CHIC, 3 JH legs, and Eero - BIS/2x BISS Ch. Benton Ivy League, UD, RA, MX, AXJ, MXP2, MJP, CGC, CHIC, ASCA CDX. One for Susan and one for me! Mine will be Lucille. :-)
