Dr. Hauser gives vaccinations and all puppies passed their 1st check-up

The puppies all received their 1st vaccinations and veterinarian check-up from Dr. Hauser, our vet of over 18 years with Bichon Frise. They all passed with flying colors, and only a few even yipped at the shots. The check-up covers all over with these areas receiving special attention:
The 13 items are checked as Normal or Abnormal or No Exam are:
-General Appearance
-Integumentary (Skin)
-Neural Systems
-Lymph nodes
-Mucous Membranes
At this time, Topo Gigio and Peaches have been reserved for adoption, while Snowball and Prince are interviewing potential parents. Patricia and I are holding back Jet until at least 16 weeks to make an initial evaluation as to whether he will be kept longer for potential for show. He already exhibits outstanding traits. Come see us!

Estee and Charles are on their honeymoon....

Topo Gigio and Peaches'n Creme have been adopted

Yesterday, Ruth fell in love with Topo, and shortly after that Caity and Patricia, after much consideration, decided that Peaches'n Creme was the perfect companion for their little male Bichon Teddy. Puppy pick up will begin around the middle to end of August. The more socialization the better.
