Hi there, handsome...

Summer and Michelle helped me get pix of The Hawklet (4 mos) today at a puppy match. Little guy got a Group 3 and he actually walked on a leash and tried his best to behave. My standard disclaimer is that YES, I know I'm biased, but I think the little dude is getting more and more handsome. It appears we do need to do some work with that inside back leg, it seems to be doing its own thing in a couple of the photos!

New Hawk Litter On The Way!

There will be a new brood of Hawk-babies arriving shortly! We are excited to see the new babies, and will post pix as soon as we get the good news. I'm very pleased with the way Frankie grew up, and the new litter with mom Mele is a very handsome group of babies.

Anotha Brotha, Loki

Look, we've heard from Liz and have located The Hawklet's Brother #3! His name is Loki, and he lives in Indiana with Liz and family.
According to Liz, Loki's teeth have a fondness for footwear! Oops, naughty Loki.Loki has a 14 year old Pem sister, and well, you Pem people won't be surprised to hear that sister Maddy is none too fond of the Loki pup! Imagine that!
The first thing I noticed about Loki in this photo is his super fat foot. I love that fat foot. To steal a phrase from my good friend Jacque, I could just eat it with a spoon! Love the fat feet. haa. So thanks Liz for sharing photos of Loki, I hope I'll keep getting more and more photos of ALL the other puppies. Now I just have to track down one more brother and one more sister to have the family all accounted for!
It might just be me, but I'm getting the impression that Loki is one spoiled little guy. I think the cat is trying to tell me something, but if she was blinking an SOS in Morse Code, that doesn't translate well in photos. But I can just imagine him beckoning a human to hurry up and sit down, because he needs a lap for a nap!

Who's behind the door?

You know, in studies of monkeys, The Hawklet probably wouldn't be rated beyond a Baboon for the "self recognition" test!!!

All in the Family- Kash and Seti and Acorn

Fun stuff today! We have made contact with some of the other Hawklets! Two of the baby brothers are on opposite sides of the country, and both are absolute cutie pies! And sister Acorn lives in Canada.

First, we have Kash (Caval's Loose Change). He lives in Arizona, and he lives with another Vallhund big sister, 12 1/2 year old Sage.Isn't he a doll??? He has started some clicker training, and his mom hopes he may be a good service dog with training. He really likes his older sister Sage, and follows right behind her on their walks. We are hopeful that Kash will have a family reunion with us in Flagstaff next June when the Vallhunds head to Arizona!



The next brother is Seti, short for Forseti (Norse god of justice). He lives in New Hampshire. His mom says that right now he's learning that the cats, pigs, and chickens would like him more if he didn't play too rough! He really loves playing outside exploring the woods. We think Seti is also a handsome, handsome little dude!





And then there's sister Acorn! Acorn lives in Canada, eh? She's pretty cute, and keeps her mom hopping! Hey, is she sticking her tongue out at us???
