The Comedy Litter

9 pups, 4 females and 5 males, born June 22, 2008

Cobreeder: Lise Pratt

Our Comedy litter arrived in quite a rush on June 22, 2008. The pups were all born within two hours. These pups all have a comedic theme to their registered names. To go to each dog’s web page click on his/her name. Click on the photos to see a larger version. To see how these puppies grew up, visit their blog at for lots of photos, videos and updates.

This amazing group of dogs made their mom a GRCA Outstanding Dam before they turned two and their dad a GRCA Outstanding Sire before they turned three! We’ve had lots of Outstanding Dams in our breeding careers but never one with pups this young. Wow!
