We have been away from the training and show grounds since March this year. Puppy Calliope Connie (AI) is now coming out. She is four months old.
It feels great to be returning. I am one of the ones who stay away from Waterford if I have puppies as Barbados like other countries, has parvovirus which can wipe out puppies. I have never had parvovirus here but I am extra careful with puppies and besides using a lot of bleach everywhere, I do not encourage any visitors when I have puppies, especially those who have dogs and take them to public places where other dogs run.
Connie is like her mother so sat in my suv calmly and looked out of the windows.
She impressed me with how easily she responded to walking on a leash as this was her first occasion. She knows basic words, such as her name, and commands such as come, sit and down with stays and go. We are currently learning the stay with stand command.
Calliope Connie (AI)) is the progeny of Belgium Ch. Link van het Gieldre Hof and Ch. Chepam Valentina at Calliope C.D.
