Our friend and breeder Linda Reece gave us the good news that Polly – the possible mother of our puppy – is in heat and will be bred shortly. Linda send me a photo of her quite wonderful dogs and asked if I recognized Polly. I didn’t, but Maria did. Polly is the dog in the front, closest to the power source. She has a very sweet temperament and soulful eyes. We are eager to see her puppies and wish her and Linda the best of luck. That is quite a crew, and like my dogs, they have grasped the meaning of a photo shoot.
