Puppies Ready for Their New Homes

We have a litter of purebred Reinhounds (Border Collie mix mother/Lab looking father) that are ready for their new homes. All of these pups are registered with the CKC (Craigville Kennel Club). There were 11 in the litter, but Runt has already been adopted and unfortunately, I don't have a picture of him. He weighed 4# at 7 weeks old (6/26/10). Here are the other puppies in the litter. (I've named them all, but if you adopt 1 (or more) feel free to change their name!)

Black & Tan Male: Tiller, 7# 5 oz. ***RESERVED***

Yellow Male: Mack, 8#.

Black Male: Stealth, 8# 10 oz. I call him Stealth because I can never find him. He's really shy.

Yellow Male: Hulk, 9# 7 oz. This boy is huge!

Black Female: Beauty, 7# 12 oz. Original name, I know.

Red Female: Dingo, 8# 7 oz.

Yellow Female: Runtette, 5# 13 oz. With her brother gone, she is now the baby of the litter.

Yellow Female: Breeze, 8# 14 oz. This girl is fast. She runs like the wind.

Red Female: Rosa, 9#.

Yellow Female: Amarilla, 8# 6oz.
I took them all to the vet on Saturday where they got their puppy shots and wormer (they also got weighed and their nails trimmed). If you would take 1 puppy to Smith's Vet in Berne for this treatment, it would cost approximately $55. So I will probably try to sell the puppies for $50. But I will give you the friends/family discount of $30. This will cover the cost of the shots since I received a group discount. If you have any questions, let me know. If you are thinking about getting one, but want to check w/ your spouse first, I've got a better idea. Why don't you just surprise them and bring a puppy home? I'm sure they will be thrilled!!!

Last Thursday night, I went out to eat with some guys from our Bible study. We went to the Brickhouse in Monroe to try to conquer the Bellringer. The Bellringer is a 5 patty cheeseburger. These aren't your typical Dollar Menu patties, though. Each patty is huge! We estimated that each patty was around 1/3 pound. If that is right, then each Bellringer is the equivalent of 7 quarter-pounders! It might look big in the pictures below, but until one is set in front of you, I don't think you can fully comprehend how huge it really is.

Only Andy was able to eat it all. He got a T-shirt (the only size they had was XXXL), his picture taken, and got to ring the bell. I only ate 3 of the 5 patties. But I now have another item on my list of things to do before I die: "Conquer the Bellringer!"
