Jacob is going to Calgary too!
Jacob is now adopted and is going to live in Calgary.
Marcia is off to Calgary and Jacob is waiting for his new family
It looks like Jacob is developing some of his mom's Brindle butterscotch colouring, but we'll need to wait to see how he develops. He may become a very unique Labradoodle! --ADOPTED
Just Marcia and Jacob are left looking for new homes
Johnny and Minnie (from Nia's) litter have been adopted by two families whose wives are sisters. Both have lots of experience with dogs and lots of love for each other... it was nice to see.
Stay tuned for some new photos of Marcia and Jacob!!!

Ripley's pups go far and wide - five pups remain
With Gunner staying local in Edmonton it looks like we just need a family in Saskatchewan and we'll have at least one pup in all the Western provinces!!!
Johnny, Marcia, Cassie, Sarina and Jacob remain so far.
Levi is going to live in Victoria, BC and Gertie is going to live in Winnipeg!
It's time for the four week photo-op!
This time I let Sara take some of the pictures while I held the pups. This worked not too bad. Some had their heads cut off the top, or an ear lopped off the side... but, all in all, Sara's got the touch!
Gunner grins for his picture... I really wonder what he's thinking. He is quite the goofy character. -- ADOPTED
Gertie (now "Sophie") is a quiet, sweet, little girl. She loves her snuggles. -- ADOPTED
Marcia is the biggest puppy girl. She is friendly and fun. -- ADOPTED
Johnny is a fun character and ready to play at moments notice. And he's very smart too! -- ADOPTED
Levi (now "Dave") is a calm, sweet, snuggler. -- ADOPTED
Jacob is a lively character and very entertaining. -- ADOPTED
Sarina is a calm sweetheart. What a cutie! -- ADOPTED
Cassie is a fun character who likes her snuggles. -- ADOPTED
Has it been 2 weeks already?
Ripley is a very protective mom and is getting into her new role as Mom very well. She does not like other dogs near her pups but she is starting to enjoy showing off her pups to all of the visitors.
Marcia is warning the kids Cassie and Jacob to "hold still... or you'll slide off this bale."
Levi pops into the photo for some fun, but John is not impressed with the camera and ploys with Gunner to escape.
Sarina gives Gertie a kiss. Awwwhhh!
Ripley's litter arrives in late March

Ripleys pups are named after some very good friends of ours. They helped dog sit while we were in Florida and now they're going to come and help with our multitudes as well.
The boys are... John, Jacob, Levi and Gunner.
The girls are... Marcia, Cassie, Sarina and Gertie.
(Gunner and Gertie are their German Short Haired Pointers' names)
This will be so neat to have them involved!!
