2015 Litter: Photos - Birth to 4.5 weeks of age

The day before turning 7 weeks old: Maybelline tells Baby Fern just what she thinks of her. Black tri boys (Blazey, left and Wave, right) bookend the group. That's Zorra's black tri head on the bottom of the pile.

 Cuteness abounds in this beautiful litter!  They come by it honestly:  Here is the sire CH Spring Fevers Wanna Dance "Tyce"

  The six girls (3 blue merles, 2 black tris) and 3 three boys (1 blue merle, 2 black tris) are growing by leaps and bounds, thanks to  first-time mother V.V., who is milking like a Holstein and keeping her pups in pristine condition.  Full tummies, quiet, clean, vigorous, healthy puppies: A breeder's dream.  They were born June 25, and turn 5 weeks old tomorrow (July 30, 2015).  They have started eating soaked puppy kibble mixed with cottage cheese and are almost all paper/pad trained. This morning, one of the girl pups was whining to get outside to go potty -  what a good girl! We are in the midst of a triple digit heat wave, so the door was kept closed and the AC going.  I was thrilled to see her want to use the outside area at such a young age! 

Still taking reservations on this litter. We place on temperament and suitability of pup to their new home. Color/Sex preferences best if left flexible (you're not buying shoes..) I make the placement decisions at approx 8 weeks of age.  You may email me at: ann dot ebbtide at gmail dot com

CH Ebbtide No Time To Lose "V.V." New Champion and puppies!

We had a whirlwind May 2015:  "V.V." came in heat unexpectedly, timing is perfect for a summer litter:
V.V.'s info:  Name: ASCA CH Ebbtide No Time To Lose   DOB 7/19/2012
Sire: HOF ASCA CH BISS AKC GRCH Hearthside's Nothing To Lose AKC CD, RN #1 Year End Novice A USASA   "Bodie"
Dam: AKC/ASCA CH Ebbtide Fern Ch, OTCH, Agility titled producer  "Fern"
  OFA Hips Good   OFA Elbows Normal     CERF/CAER Eye exam: Clear (no notations) April 2015
MDR1: Mutant/Normal     HSF4: Clear by parentage   Pelger Huet: Clear by parentage

V.V. finished her ASCA Championship in a fantastic 3-show day with a clean sweep: 3 Winners Bitch awards, 3 majors and 2 Best of Winners!
We are pleased to introduce ASCA Champion Ebbtide No Time To Lose (this photo from 2014).  Did I mention it rained ALL DAY at the outdoor show where she finished?  We looked a little...umm...soggy in her New Champion photos, so recycling this sunny day photo:

How "V.V." celebrates Christmas

   We are very excited about her upcoming litter (due late June 2015) by the handsome young dog, AKC/ASCA CH. Spring Fevers Wanna Dance  "Tyce".  I had the pleasure of meeting and judging "Tyce" at the 2014 ASCA Nationals in Texas, where I awarded him Winners Dog.  I love his moderation, balance, soundness and beauty.  I also love his sensible temperament, vertical bounce (just like V.V.), and how (just like V.V.) he leans hard into people for petting.  There's lots more to love, including his pedigree and health clearances.   You can read and see more photos of Tyce here (be sure to click on "GALLERY" to see lots of great photos):
  Performance and versatility prospects with loads of beauty, soundness, intelligence and ability are what we're hoping for (as always). As always, experienced performance homes are preferred, and though V.V. is not performance titled in stock or obed/rally/agility yet, it's not because of any lack of talent: Just an owner (me) who isn't training as hard as I did in my younger days! I'm always hoping for an experienced, committed Performance/Versatility Competition home for my pups.   Before they leave here, they will be started on clicker training, eye tested, MDR1 tested, herding exposure to ducks and very limitedly to sheep. Contact me if this interests you (ann dot ebbtide at gmail dot com).  This will be our only litter in 2015.  

*Update: Litter born June 25, 2015  6 females 3 males - blues & black tris.  Taking reservations at this time. Please note: We don't place puppies according to color and sex.  We place our pups according to their temperament and suitability to their new home.
