Holiday Season upon us soon!!!

The Holiday season is fast approaching. Need a special gift for the reader and book lover in the family, visit my shop and find that unusual book. Very reasonable prices and fast shipping from Amazon. I add new books weekly. Save time, fuel and money by shopping at Jopavist Best Books!

Jopavist Best Books is no longer in business. But I do have a nice shop at Cafe press.

No Pups, so sad!

Our two litters that were expected did not materialize. One girl just completely missed. She is young so not too surprising, she will have pups some other time, when the time is right for her.

My other girl had one large pup, she was stillborn. Very sad for Ginger the mom, as after giving birth she continued for almost two days to search for her pup. The delivery was quite difficult as the pup was so large.Ginger will not chance going through this again. She will be six soon and has given us one beautiful litter. She has done her share.

But on the good side we do plan to have pups in January. We have bred our Brooke, to the lovely Ch Weststars Finders Keepers of Illusion Shetland Sheepdogs. These pups should be stunning.
Check back in a few weeks and we will know for sure if Brooke is expecting.
Once we know she is expecting we will post pictures of Brooke and Keeper on our Sheltie website.
