Mr. Brindle found a squirrel. Kane destuffed it, but Mr. Brindle still likes to play with it.

Brindle girl 2 visits next door for a moment to see if her sister might have a better toy in her crate. :-)

Now, I want to keep Biscuit desperately. But that's because I really feel like he has the potential to be a "Kane" type of Cardigan. And I will only consider placing him in a home where he's going to be an only dog, or perhaps one other dog. I think it would be an injustice to him to keep him in my multi-dog home, although I absolutely will if the perfect home doesn't come along (that goes for any of my puppies). I'd love to keep Biscuit, but I will post him as available in case the absolute, 100% perfect home comes along for this very special fluffernutter.
Brindle Girl 1 continues to worm her way into my heart. My favorite thing about her is her absolute joy in everything she does. She went on a slumber party with my friend Kathy, and I understand that Brindle Girl 1 (named Goofy Girl by Kathy and family) took great delight in jumping over the rungs at the bottom of her kitchen chairs! The thing that makes me laugh the most is the way she insists on barking when she has something in her mouth. She'll grab my pantleg, and "roo roo rooooooo" or a toy, or one of her sisters' ears, whatever. This puppy is definitely an active girl, but as sweet as any puppy could be. Everything in the world is a happy adventure for her. Aside from brains, this puppy is absolutely beautiful, and I love watching her sidegait when she's out moving across the yard.
Mr. Brindle is as special as ever. I think he'll be a constant companion to whoever he attaches himself to. He and Biscuit really appear to me the completely loyal to their own kind of Cardigan. Maybe it's just because they are boys. :-) But I can't think of anything else to say about Mr. Brindle, because anyone who's ever seen any post on the blog knows how special he is.

Seriously, while I hate that Courtney and Adam now have the agony of deciding, I have to say that at least I know it's not just me, I can't pick either! So, they'll sleep on it and come back tomorrow to play with puppies again, and then it'll be one or the other.

Agility, Rally, and hopefully Herding will be in the cards for the new puppy. I'm so excited for tomorrow, and yet I'm so sad to see one of my babies leave the nest. Whichever puppy ends up being "The Dog" for Courtney and Adam, I know the puppy has a happy future ahead.
I think the faithful blog readers and puppy sitters and puppy party attendees should help by commenting on the blog to let Courtney and Adam know which puppy YOU think they should pick. :-) It'll be a Virtual Puppy Picking Party.
Because, as you know, I have already explained why each of these three are the perfect puppy. ...

So I rigged up this contraption with expen panels to help move the puppies out the back door and into the "chute" like cattle. I think it's more like herding cats than cows, though. And the puppies LOVE using their little ramp. At first, they tried to walk/run down the ramp, but now they step on, and let themselves just slide down the ramp and into their pen.
Hmm, I'm pretty sure I only counted five Cardi Tushies headed down that ramp!
AHA! Here she is...
And once the babies are in the puppy yard, I slide another panel across the chute. :-)
And when it's time for the puppies to be herded back into the house, I lift the gate, and off they go!
Climb, climb, climb!
P.S. Annie is off for the evening to visit with Dudley, Taffy, Cheri and George. I'm absolutely amazed at how quiet it is at the house! The other puppies are probably trying to catch up on sleep, since Annie instigates lots of wrestling and chasing around here! And I did give Annie explicit instructions that she's to send me an email and let me know what kind of fun she finds at Dudley's house!
