7.6.2011 Bon voyage puppies!

Time flies when you're having fun. Early this summer it was time for puppies to move on and we wish all the best for them and their families :). Photos of the puppies have been added to the gallery and to C-puppies' own page.

Before puppies were ready to leave, they were microchipped and health checked. Because Alma-puppy wasn't reacting to sounds like the rest, the entire litter was also BAER-tested. Alma was found deaf and her sister Sointu hears only with one ear. Active and fearless Alma found best possible home and now lives with her mom Sissi and her family. Huge and warm thanks to family Mäkinen for their excellent co-operation with Sissi's litter :)!!
