I thought it might be nice to share the pictures of the Bell puppies born on Jan 1st.
These babies are sired by CH. Starfall The Enchanter CD who is owned by Tricia Harris of Lacewood Shelties. "Brock" is her token brown dog and he is a very nice one at that. An old basic Barwood pedigree, his lightness of skull is what drew me to him for this breeding. He has remarkable lack of depth to his skull with smooth, very flat cheeks that transition into his backskull making for the perfect wedge. His topskull has the "corners" that I look for and that Bell needs as well. He also possess the beautiful three corner eye that Bell really needs. He is a nice moving dog, with proportionate bone and sufficient coat. Beautiful color too. Top all this off with a wonderful temperament and I thought the match for the breeding was a very nice one. He is also an older dog (9yrs)with no health issues, and clear health screening tests.
So.... the resulting litter. They have to be some of the prettiest new borns I have had. I am very pleased with them. Oh,, and I got such red little babies too. I am loving that. They were pretty large puppies when born and are the best little eaters. They eat and eat till they cry cause their bellies are about to burst!
So here they are,, 2 days old.
