Super cute! Is Rose the one you thought might be a blue sable? Looks like the bluish tinge went away with age, Cream sable now or is the blue actually still there? I love the little white blaze's on the creams. Can't wait till they get fluffy!
Well, Well, Well. Ain't you guys just a bunch of followers. Just because someone loves taking pictures of puppies as they grow... THAT MAKES ME A PUPPYMILLER OR BYB? Give me a break. (insert sarcasm) For your question I have a total of eight dogs in my home. That would be three female Pomeranians, one male Pomeranian, Two female Shih Tzu and two male Shih Tzu one of which is a neutered. I have been breeding for 10 years. No I am not showing at this point in my life. At some point I hope too, but I really don't have to explain myself. As far as the pictures go I will continue to take the pictures with props if I wish. I used to spend hundreds of dollars to have my own dogs pictures done professionally with props. (I guess those photographers are puppymillers) LOL I enjoy taking pictures and there is nothing wrong with making them look good. Maybe you should try it.
Lovebug and WileyBlaze... Thanks for the compliments.
Life isn't like a box of chocolates . . it's more like a jar of jalapenos.
Funny how someone thinks they can tell if your 2-3 week old puppies are quality or not. Like there is really some indication of their quality just because you put a feather boa over them for their pictures. So if a show breeder puts a feather boa and beads over their champion sired show prospect puppies for their pictures does that turn them into a BYB?? Does that make the pups automatically crap? What a stupid thing to pick at.
ROFL!!!! In case you two haven't noticed my avtar is a professional photo! They don't need props to make them more than what they are. Show people don't need props either. Of course you wouldn't have known that now would you? LOL!
How many litters has each of your females had & how old are they?
Can't stand the heat?.....Don't tickle the Dragon!
i dont know about all that puppymiller stuff. one of the gals on my frenchie forum has a cute little frenchie that she has pics of wearing a pink feather boa. she has been spayed since she was six months old. she only has one other dog and an occasional rescue. so i dont relate the boa to being a miller. the pups are adorable. i like rose the best. i have a thing for the black faces. soooo cute !!
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
Dusty, If you see websites where there is a back drop of some sort & other garb around the puppies it is most likey a millers or BYB's site. They use these props to advertise to make lots of money,thinking the cuteness factor will rake in more $$. Granted the puppies are cute but what puppies aren't?
Yes I have taken photos of mine with silly hats etc but I am not trying to sell them either. They are mine. If I was to try to sell them no they wouldn't have that garb on. Oh & BTW once again.....I will say as I have in may past threads....I am NOT condoning all show breeders to be perfect! Their certainly are some money hungry ones out there too. But then again....we really don't need to go there again either.
Oh that's right...lets get breeding for the heck of it so I get to make money off my pimped out dogs. In the mean time more shelter dogs die because I chose to breed my dog for the heck of it! Real intellegent! Oh & lets register them with CKC the miller & BYB 's favorite registry! Gezz give us a break.

Okay rhondakbt you're really starting to get on my nerves, my mother is not a freakin' miller. Come on. and the thing is the props do look cute. they are cute IT DOESN'T FLIPPING MEAN THAT * "Oh that's a puppy miller, oh don't buy from there" You think you are educated on the subject but I don't think you are, okay professionals use props in their photos, even with real people. They make the picture look more professionally done and the thing is it really does look cute. We didn't feel like having people taking the pictures for us so we did it ourselves and they look better than the professionals, okay, so quit griping about the fact that some puppy millers use props...most puppy millers couldn't care less about the dogs *, they wouldn't take the time to make pictures that look good, they just want them to live long enough so they can get their money. So before you go accusing my mother, no wait, my family of being a puppy mill. Look at the facts +Nikkie+

Dogs are the ones that will love you no matter what, so love them back! ^^
Don't even coment the rude posts.. just pass em by.. I know it gets personal, I've been told I was a lier here.. and that just feels rotten, I don't want to be called a lier. You don't need to justify anything. Your pups are cute :) I reallt enjoyed them :)
But you did have a litter recently or was that another poster? just out of curiosity as Pyr said.
BTW, thanks for sharing
If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them.
On your website, it says that you are a "small hobby breeder", I can remember 3 litters in the past couple months...thats not really just a "small hobby". Over and over we discuss the point of breeding. Isn't it to better the breed? Shouldn't you be showing? With the prices you have for "pets" it looks like you make a fair amount of change... If you want to prove to us that you are in fact a reputable breeder, how about answer these few simple questions...
What kind of health testing do you do? hips? eyes? thyroid? What goals do you have? What is the reason for producing more dogs on this earth if they are just "pets"? Do you have spay/neuter agreements? Do you have references? Do you have a mentor?
LMFAO. Who in their right mind has their KID come online in their defense? What a bunch of phonies.
And if "your mom" isnt a puppy miller, she SURE heck is a back yard breeder bringing dogs into the world. How many champions do you have? Why are you staying within AKC standards if you register with CKC? Note to self, Cont. Kennel Club is garbage.. and only BYB's and puppy mill's use it.
