They are stunners, Koala. You have really pulled out all the stops to get these two through :thumbsup::thumbsup: . They have such intense stares as though they are trying very very hard to take in everything you are saying and doing.

Too sad about Narla. :cry: Hugs to her carer.

We started clicker training with the puppies today - they are very intense and focused so it's quite fun to see them concentrating hard.

I made a little video for the whole litter.

Update about former foster Frida :) Here she is with her foster brother Bob the Kelpie - his first time at the beach. After adopting Frida, her family also started volunteering with the same rescue, which is lovely.

How awesome an outcome - both for Frida AND the lucky rescue who scored another great foster carer... well done!!

Have been starting to do Smudge's music video. I got distracted though so this is not her video, but it's a video saying No to Black Dog Syndrome :) Elbie is a special guest star.

I do find it interesting that such a smart, cute and lively puppy - who I think is likely to be a very good agility prospect, gets less hits on petrescue than her littermates because she is a Black Dog. I guess only Special People want a black dog :)

I love all your videos! I am personally very drawn to black dogs because I don't think there is anything more beautiful than a shiny black coat! Even with the shar pei's wrinkles you get all this light and dark and texture that I just want to touch! I also love dark eyes hiding in dark fur!

Yep, I'm a sucker for the black ones!

Here's my latest feral, Loki collected from Renbury yesterday. Listed as a Koolie on her chip.

Black dogs are very special... and they get only the very best owners... so that's why Smudge is getting less hits. Only the best people are looking at her... *grin*

Thanks guys. I'm not in a hurry to rehome her - happy to take the time it needs. I just feel bad for her that she's getting overlooked. In this instance, I can say that it really is colour because there is very little to distinguish her from her other litter-mates at this particular time except her colouring. They are all smart, cute, crate trained, getting house trained, learning tricks etc etc. Their blurbs are all kind of similar - Smudge even has MORE photos and videos but people actually have to click before they can fall in love!

Hmmmmm..... Must say I love a black dog too! Though I do also like a little bit of a 'quirk'.

I think smudge has both! I would snap her up in a heartbeat if the timing was better :( she is the sort of dog that really appeals to me and all the work you are putting into her makes it even better!

Oh well! You'll just have to keep fostering so one day I can snaffle one of your fabulous fosters! :D

Another thought, if you think she would suit dogsports, you could try marketing her to people doing them, posting on some of the agility/ flyball etc groups and if you have the chance maybe showing her off at some trials? I know of quite a few dogs in the sport scene that have found homes that way.

I think she's stunning !! The right family will come alone and they will be keepers, don't worry Smudge.
