Week 5 (Rozz-Turner Litter)

This is one of my favorite ages for puppies. I never tire of their enthusiasm and play time!

Happy 10th Birthday DeeDee!

Today is Stonepine Simply Darling's (aka Deedee) 10th birthday. [Ch. Heatherhill Double-O Heaven "Cazz" x Stonepine Sparks Fly "Ash"] She is a wonderful dog.  She is smart, obedient, curious, happy, and loving.  I attached a pic of her swimming in my pool, one of her favorite things to do. She swims daily in the summer, in addition to a daily walk of a mile or more. She is in fit shape, no health problems, and doing well. Thank you for letting me adopt her from you.” Carolyn Shores.

"There is a huge body of research, despite the paucity of funding from the vaccine industry, to confirm that vaccines can cause a wide range of brain and central nervous system damage. Merck itself states in its Manual that vaccines (i.e., its own products) can cause encephalitis: brain inflammation/damage. In some cases, encephalitis involves lesions in the brain and throughout the central nervous system. Merck states that 'examples are the encephalitides following measles, chickenpox, rubella, smallpox vaccination, vaccinia, and many other less well defined viral infections'."

Stonepine Styxx 'n Stones

"Hi Nannette - Just checking in to let you know that we have a very happy Aussie. She's so much fun, gets along with all  other dogs, and is such a quick learner. She's a big ball and frisbee girl, and loves to play hide and seek with toys in the house. We've taken many agility classes, and she's learned some tricks as well. We still do lots of hiking but the highlight of her day is chasing and being chased by other dogs every evening at the park. She's quite well known there and everyone gets very excited when she arrives. Here's a recent picture from a trip to Los Angeles where we stayed at a hotel that takes dogs. All the bellmen and valets were in love with her and she was thoroughly spoiled!" Pam
