Nolan is 46 weeks old, and went in for his 10-month weight check this past week. He is 17 lb 7 oz now, which puts him solidly in the growth curve for the 3rd percentile. Length we measured ourselves, and he appears to be about 28.5″, which is at least in the 25th percentile. All… Continue reading 46 Weeks
It’s hard to believe, but our little pup is a whole year old today. While she’s busy chawing on her birthday bone, I wanted to take the opportunity to share a few choice photos documenting her growth. Freyja was one of a litter of 11 born on February 18, 2007 to Vom Holtzberg’s Ernie and… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Freyja!
Another weekend, another post full of romping puppies. Last week’s playdate was so fun that we set up another one for yesterday afternoon, and the dogs had a blast sprinting around at top speed after their toys. Spencer has almost caught up with Freyja in height, but she is still longer, and I dare say… Continue reading Dogblog

We just finished an obedience training course that lasted 7 weeks. Freyja was… Continue reading Our Big Girl
This is what we’ve been doing instead of updating the blog lately…. Freyja’s entrance on the scene was the death knell for our carpets, which were already the worse for wear thanks to the machinations of 5 ferrets over the course of 6 years. Actually, the ferret smells in the carpet were giving Freyja some… Continue reading Keeping Busy
Freyja is 18 weeks old now, and getting bigger and more beautiful every day. We got her together again this weekend with Spencer the Dobie pup, and they had an awesome time playing. This time we let Freyja off leash, so the two puppies really got to go at it, chasing each other back and… Continue reading Puppy Playdate, Redux
