Mugsy's First Photoshoot

I took Mugsy to Savvy Photography in Minneapolis for some professional pictures. He did great for a 7 week old puppy! This is one of my favorite pictures so far, I'll have more on my site soon.

Meet Mugsy

He is finally here! So far we have noticed he is fearless and loves chasing Azia, our 3 year old dog, everywhere. Azia is still warming up to the idea...

UPDATE!!! We are off...

...and jumping for joy to meet the little guy.

We will also meet his mum, Kaw (below right), and thirteen other little puppies! The founding stud Bonner will also be there. It's unfortunate we don't get to see Kodiak the father (below left) but maybe someday.

Traveling to pick up Mugsy at Roundhead Kennels in Bonner Springs, Kansas was a great experience. Not only were the owners friendly they had a setup you felt great about buying a puppy from. We learned a few training tricks that the little guy goes nuts for! Apparently it IS in the genes.

While at RH Kennel we met Bonner the resident Stud, he was wonderful with the puppies and seem to enjoy them tackling him. What a great temperament and good looking male dog. Rory and I were a bit torn to not have gotten a puppy from the Bonner and Dottie breeding. We met Dottie and Kaw, the resident female OBB's at RH and they were a delight also. Kaw was owner centric but did a great belly roll for me so I could give her a scratch. Mugsy loves to get a belly rub just like his mum! I didn't get much time to meet Dottie, she was distracted by the flying toys Kaw was playing with for me, but a nice size female dog that was similar in build to Bonner.

All in all it was worth the trip to Kansas to pick the Mugsy up. However I think if you wanted to fly your pup home, RH Kennel appears to go the extra mile to ensure a safe and secure flight for the pups. Additionally we have contacted Eric Thomas at RH Kennel for advise as we have questions about Mugsy and he has been very open to our calls and helpful.
