Hilfy had four large, active puppies on March 26, 2007 - three boys and a girl. We now have 17 full siblings on the ground from this very successful cross -- see also our litter of 8 whelped May 2005 and the litter of 5 boys born in August 2006. These pups are proving to be as outstanding as their older brothers and sisters. For You-Tube video clips of these puppies, click here.

Reilly (Boy Blue) was born first and latched onto a teat before he was even completely out. He weighed in at a strapping 22 ounces, but Hilfy didn't have much trouble getting him born -- guess he was hungry! He was the only one with a small white spot on his forehead like his mother Hilfy, which faded before he flew off to Boise, Idaho at 8 weeks. He was the second biggest at going-home time, and is a handsome, well balanced puppy. He is also very, very sweet and cheerful. He has gone to live with Erik Carlson and Jennifer Bremer, who plan to try him in obedience and agility. We wish them the best with this most happy fella! For more pictures and updates from his family, see Reilly's page.

This little guy was born second, and weighed 18 ounces. He is the smallest puppy in the litter, but is still a good sized boy. He is the clown of the litter, but he does have a temper! He also has an incredible prey drive. He is second lightest in color and will be a medium red. We started calling him Chili Pepper at a young age because of his spicy, bouncy personality, and the name seems to have stuck! See Chilli's Page. for news updates, growing-up pictures, and more puppy pictures.

Hunter (whose puppy name was 'The Green Dragon') was born third, after a lengthy (1.5 hour) wait. He was the largest puppy from the start, and the darkest in color. He is also the one with the most stamina -- always the 'last man standing' after a play session. As a puppy, he was bold, cheerful, cuddly, and good natured. He went home to New York State, near Albany, where he will join his handsome granddad SR Highland Hoya MH WCX OS as a hunter, hunt test competitor, and housepet for Jack and Donna Bussey. He has a lot of potential in this field, and we are excited to see how he does! See Hunter's Page for news updates, growing-up pictures, and more puppy pictures.

Sedona, aka 'The Pink Princess', was born fourth and was our last chance for a girl. We gave Hilfy a big kiss for her! She was in a hurry and came out within minutes of Hunter. She weighed a healthy 18 ounces at birth and is the lightest color of the bunch. She has gone to New York State, near Buffalo, to live with Diane and Tom SanFilipo and their other goldens -- her Aunt Summer, Hilfy's littermate, and her Uncle Sundance (Hilfy and Summer's half brother). She will be learning hunt and obedience. She is a character, very bold and beautiful, regal even as a puppy, and very full of herself. She had no trouble mixing it up with her brothers, and is a large puppy, always within an ounce either side of Boy Blue. See Sedona's Page for news, at-home pictures, and more baby shots.
