I know it tickles me because Plum and I are very good friends now...so I am sure it makes her happy too..
Having forged a friendship to boot is a wonderful thing! And the video is priceless to Plum I'm sure.

While not exactly friends, I do talk to Jasper's breeder every couple of weeks via email. It's nice to be able to ask questions. And since she has his sister we can commiserate over the different puppy stages LOL. She's also showing his sister so we'll see each other at shows this summer.

That is cool. You getting to see the kids growing up together. It is very important for the breeder to be there for every single family of their pups!! We had one husband and wife who bought Betty-Jo and Jenny's sister, and they were so cute. They spoke Ukrainian and their English was not great, and neither of them had ever had a dog in their lives before. Well, for the first two months they called me at least three times a week. They thought the puppy was seizing because she twitched in her sleep, not knowing dogs dream. They thought she had a fever. Over the phone I taught them how to take her temp rectally, and told them not to take her to the vet until they called me first, because I figured the vet would see them as easy marks. Well, those pups with will two on September 13th, and I maybe hear from them once every three months now, just to give me an update on their girl. It has been a joy watching them go from terrifed first time parents to people who will never live without a dog now. Confident and totally in love.

Each liitter I make new friends, and each litter there is someone I end up especially close to. Our 2008 litter brought us Betty-Jo and Jenny and Trillium and I have become dear friends. Our 2009 litter brought us Lucy and Plumcrazy and I have become lifetime friends. Plum, her hubby and Lucy are coming here at the end of May/beginning of June and they and Trilliums family are going to meet, and all of the full sisters will be getting together too. The Spoos have brought nothing but good things my way!!!

Enjoy getting to know your boys sister!!

It's weird because I remember the day this video was shot like it was yesterday (Arreau called me many times that day to let me know as the pups were being born and was excited to tell me when the 3rd girl appeared because that meant I was a lucky momma!) But even though it seems like it JUST happened, I don't remember our lives without Lucybug... It's like she's been with us always! :)

It was a very good day when I happened to send an email to Arreau Red Standard Poodles - not only did I get the puppy of my dreams, I gained a lifelong friend! :hug:

Our friendship was in its baby stages at this point, so now that we have become so close, it is very special to have this, for both of us.

Holly sits right by me when I am watching the videos with her head tilting to the left, tilting to the right. If she could, she would climb right into the computer to see where in the heck those babies are!!

That's so cool to have that video. Wish I had one of Ted when he was first born.
Not only do I have that super-cool video, Arreau made sure to take (and share via emails and facebook) lots and lots of pictures as well as lots and lots of videos of the babies growing, first pics of open eyes, first steps, first "real' food, first outside venture, etc, etc, etc... She also loaded all the pictures and videos on a CD for each new puppy home! It's like Lucybug was right there in my own home while she was developing from a little lump into a bright and curious 8 week old! It's AWESOME!!!

I like the idea of sending home the photo CD. Might have to steal it for my mom's PWD litter this summer. We have always sent home a puppy pack, but the last time we had a litter, I don't think we even had a digital camera! Oh how times have changed. :) This is assuming of course that all goes well and Ziggy has puppies!

Thanks Plumcrazy! I am happy you enjoyed it!

Cdnjenga...it is a great thing for the people to have. They have seen most of the photos and videos because I send them out to everyone and post them on my Facebook page, but they may not have saved them, so they have a nice little record of their baby's first eight weeks. The whole thing is so nice for people buying from afar, because it keeps them a part of everything. While I am assessing the litter to see who is going where, everyone sees all of the pups, but once we know who belongs to who, the emails are focused on their baby specifically. The photo CD has nearly every shot and video taken of their puppy from the moment is was born, alone and with its pack. It is amazing how touched everyone was with this small gesture.

We send out a ProPlan puppy starter kit which includes an awesome book on welcoming puppy into the home, food, coupons, and fabulous file folder for the pups important papers and documents, all in a really good quality tote bag. Then we put in a big zip lock bag of their food, a collar and leash, their health record documentring their physical, shots, de-worming,etc., a five generation pedigree, a blanket with the scent of Mommy and siblings and a voucher for six weeks free pet insurance for the Canadian buyers. Also, all the preliminary paperwork for the CKC registration. I pop the CD into the bag with everything else (when I don't lag. This last litter I mailed them out afterward.)
