Summer Solstice Litter Turns 2 -
Growing Up Guide Pup
Puppies from left to right: Pixie, Edison, Paddington, Carmin, Trudy, Tango, Ollie, Scarlett, and
Pixie turns two this month. How did that happen?! It seems like it was just yesterday that we were
doing the flight of the bumblebee to clear out one of our bedrooms and prep it for a soon to arrive
litter of puppies. Now here we are two years later.
Pixie sure has grown a lot this last year and I’m sure all her siblings have too. All nine of the puppies
from the litter are now in their permanent placements and we couldn’t be more proud of how they
have turned out. We were told by the women who bred the litter that she has had multiple service
dogs come from her line of poodles so I guess that we shouldn’t be surprised that seven of the nine
had what it took for service dog work.

So where is everyone now? Scarlett (Ms. Red) was released from training this past winter because of
car sickness and some fear issues and was adopted by a loving family. Tango ( Mr. Green) was
matched with a person with Multiple sclerosis (MS). Gurtrude, aka Trudy (Ms, Purple) was released
as a puppy and adopted by a loving family. Unfortunately she never really had a chance to train and
it is unknown what her full potential really could have been. Hampton (Mr. Blue) was placed with a
handler and appears to be doing well, but we’ve not been informed about what types of tasks he is
trained to do. Carmin (Ms. Orange) was matched with a veteran through a organization called 4
Paws 4 Patriots. Oliver, aka Ollie, ( Mr. Pink) was matched with a teen who uses a wheelchair.
Paddington. Aka Paddy, (Mr. Yellow) was the last of the litter to be matched. He was matched
by Brigadoon Service Dogs and went to a veteran. Last but not least
