This Might Be A Bit Of A Risk...

but I've used the blog to announce this litter on my GSP lists that I belong to. I'm always leery of doing things like this as people can be quick to judge. After many years of working with rescues, nothing makes me cringe like the word puppy mill. If you've ever seen one you'd understand why I react like that. I'd like to think that Nuthatch is nothing even remotely like that.

Yes, there are a lot of dogs here and the numbers can be higher when I'm actively rescuing dogs. Anyone who has visited can tell you that you're always welcome to visit and meet everyone here and that they are very well cared for and loved dearly. There is someone here twenty-four/seven as a general rule to be with the animals.

Yes, we do breed dogs. I have lofty goals for Nuthatch GSPs and you'll find that when I have a litter I almost always keep a puppy out of it. Whether the puppy lives with me or is fostered out to someone else, it is meant to bring me closer to my goal. If this offends you, I am sorry. As you'll notice from the post below, I generally have a waiting list for puppies born here. I do not have puppies for the sake of having puppies and my accountant can guarantee you that I spend far more on them than they ever make in puppy sales. My vet has his own plane - I'm sure that I bought a wing of it.

Anyway, comments are always welcome. As always the dogs come first and foremost...


  1. Don't worry about what other people think ... a blog is simply a Web site this is much easier to update. Posting it here or on your Web site makes no difference.

    Anyone who has met you knows your dedication to your pups AND dogs.

  2. by the way -- the puppies are adorable!
