With the heat and humidity Penny has found herself left home from morning walks. Humidity and very pregnant mom's is not a good combination. It isn't quite the same but she does get time to roam the property outside the fence. Her short mommy haircut helps keep some of the heat factor down.

Some mothers play classical music for their unborn baby. Penny takes her kids hunting. Soon she will keep Monkey company, in the nursery, but until then she enjoys getting out and about.

Forecast for the Croaking Toad is for lots of puppies!!!

This is the house of hormones currently. Two pregnant mom's and 6 girls in heat. Add in the boys who live in the same house with the girls that are in heat and we have more than our share of hormonal drama.

If all goes as planned 4 or these girls, wearing diapers, will have puppies toward the end of July.

Visit my website to see information on the two litters due soon and the 4 anticipated summer litters. www.croakingtoadshihtzupuppies.com

The waters have receded but the heat and humidity have created their own obstacle.
The little girls thought hanging around in the shade
was a good plan. We were getting nowhere fast. Poor Ruby was watching for another body of water to jump in. She has such a massive thick coat that even when it is short she is hot.

Monkey is still enjoying her walks while she waits for her kids to arrive. Now that the temps are rising the waterfall is a great place to catch a breeze and cool a baby bump.

Ruby and Charli are the perfect picture of sisterly innocence with the exception of the glowing eyes. The glowing eyes are a left over from the very different picture they painted before the camera was picked up. One of sisters joining forces to dig out the bottom of the dog bed.

Our three youngest are growing like weeds and I now let them play out under the open sky during the day on their own. Not yet willing to trust them to the stealthy big hoot owls, at night, so they will use their capped night time area for a bit longer.

Today the babies went to the vet for their "exit" exam. It was a very different experience as the clinic is "covid" curb side service and I was not able to go in with them. No worries though .. Dr. Julie and all the staff at Ark of the Dunes are awesome and the puppies came back out with big smiles on their faces.
Here they are all loaded up and ready to go. You can't see in the picture but they are all wearing tiny collars of different colors to help with identification in the office.

What was happening in the world when you were born?
......TOILET PAPER HOARDING......
At first glance puppies and toilet paper have nothing in common. But during this crazy time they have a very big thing in common .. Toilet paper and Puppies. Everyone wants some right now but sold out everywhere.
If you do not find a puppy, this spring, be patient. Just like toilet paper - puppies will be back on the shelves.
If you go to my website and scroll down past the current puppies and upcoming litters you will see the four anticipated summer litters. These four girls almost always have puppies close together. If they stay on their normal schedule likely puppies in July. www.croakingtoadshihtzupuppies.com

Unfortunately all the puddles equate to muddy dogs so before they go back in the house they have to pass through the garage doggy wash station.

Rosie's puppies are not exactly Singing in the Rain but they are having fun and doing a good job going potty when they go out. On raining days, like today, they take care of business in the rock yard where they might get soggy but at least they stay clean.

Rosie maybe should think about keeping one eye open during her families afternoon snack. Kenzie just could not resist joining her aunts and uncles for a little siesta time.

Going into the winter walking season I did not anticipate I would still be walking in the snow on April 17th.

The girls love walking in the snow because it makes seeing the deer easier. Jessie has not figure out yet that when it snows we spend more time hunting than actually walking.

My little girl is amazing. Not only is she beautiful she is so sweet and doing amazing with potty training
OK - unsolicited feedback here... We purchased a puppy from Croaking Toad last summer and the puppy is now a young dog. This dog is AMAZING. We are so happy with him - he is as healthy as can be and just a joy to have around. The breeder was helpful before, during, and, importantly, after the sale. Patty was so helpful with advice on questions we had long after we brought him home. Our puppy was quickly housebroken and has acclimated to our family amazingly well. If you have any lingering doubts about getting your Shih Tzu here - I encourage you to put them aside and get the puppy you and your family deserve! No - I am not a friend or relative of the breeder (well now I am sort of due to the tremendous experience we've had) so this is a REAL and UNSOLICITED testimonial. This breeder simply cares about the breed, the puppies/dogs, and her customers.
Rufio “Olaf” is having a birthday next week! We are so grateful to have this little pup in our lives! Happy one year birthday! (Wish I could post a photo)
Bailey loves to tilt his head sideways for photos like his mommy. He also loves to splash himself with water when he has a bowl of water as you told us. It's the cutest thing he does. He's drinking out of the water bottle now. Bailey has adapted well to our house.
Rufio “Olaf” is doing great at 12 weeks! He’s quickly learning tricks and is a joy in our lives!
We just brought home our second Croaking Toad baby girl. Your puppies are so healthy, smart, and well adjusted. Very social and a welcome member to our family.
