Final Thoughts and New Beginnings

LastDays242.jpgThe last of our puppy children departed today. The whelping box is quiet. If you listen hard enough, you can still imagine the boisterous sounds of the happy litter inside just two days ago. Every story must have an end though, and this book, Emma’s Magical Adventure, has reached its final page. Looking back over the photos from the last eight weeks, it is amazing to me how many different adventures we have had and shared.

Barbara, Emma, and I wish our readers: friends, family, old and new puppy owners, much happiness. Like the traditional Irish blessing that graces many a placque, our golden puppy blessing to you all would go something like this…

May the warm memories of these puppy adventures wrap tightly around your heart and mind. May they shelter you against the frigid chills of life’s difficult moments.

May the love, laughter, and adventures we have shared together, remind us all how the simple lessons are the most important, and that living in the moment is a philosophy that we all would do well to embrace.

Then we might enjoy life as fully as our Goldens do.


But wait… Like the sparks and embers of an autumn bonfire, Emma’s efforts have taken new life to alight and flame into adventures in many new lives. Her birthing efforts now will ripple and grow into individual book sequels that will unfold over the next several years. Here are truly the fruits and blessings of her labors…

Puppy hugs to all.

    Just wanted to let Emma and her family know that her growing boy, Tucker aka Mr. Blue has adjusted beautifully to his new home. He is a very quick learner already chewing and rolling around Kongs for the hidden treats like a master detective!! He was a little lonesome on the first night but by last night settled right into his crate. He absolutely LOVES the outdoors so going out for housetraining has been easy (except for the squishy, muddy grass). He was in his glory this morning in the snow bounding around like a true golden – then chewing the snowballs off his paws. He is now snoring away probably dreaming of the great littermates and family that helped him become the handsome, happy boy he is. Many thanks for all the website updates as we literally journeyed together with Emma and you. We are very happy and he is already part of our family (well….the kitties are still checking him out!!) with love, Ollie Picard

    We are delighted to see that you could not resist the temptation to keep one of the puppies. May she bring you as much joy your other “friends”.

    Looking forward to further news of additions to your Goldens family.

    Kindest regards to you both
