5 Weeks Old

A visit with 3 faux brothers!

In our continued attempt to keep the puppy properly socialized, we made several trips up to visit our friend Nancy Mendell and her litter of 3 male goldens. They were just one day younger than our pup. Here are some pictures from one of those fun days. It was during a heat wave and the temps reached into the 100's that day so, of course, a swim party was in order! They got a proper introduction to the steps of the pool while Cricket enjoyed nonstop bumper retrieving. Colette Agresti was there to enjoy the fun. Colette is the breeder of Cricket's father, O'Reilly. I couldn't begin to identify which of Nancy's pups are which in the following pics but I can id our pup, so I'll try and do that. Nancy's boys are out of her girl, "Chickie", CH Somerset's West Point Cadette CD JH VC CGC and Mary Vogler's "Blast", Evergreen's Powder Keg CD MH OA WCX.

Cricket's pup wrestling with one of Nancy's. That's her on top... And again...
And again - sheesh! Believe me, she got her share of being on the bottom. I just didn't get any pictures of it. That's her in the foreground Nope, that's one of Nancy's pups in Terry's lap. What a cutie, huh? We were very impressed with the temperament of these boys. Nice pups!
That's her, the chunky monkey on the left about to get wet. Both Nancy's. This is the boy that went to some folks we know.

Cricket wants a pool!! You wouldn't believe how hot it was that day.
