Pups are getting big now. Just starting to suppliment mothers milk.
Lee, Christy and family came for a visit to see the pups. They have first choice of the females. Ellie also came along. She is from Sage, 2011 and is the sister of Lilly. Ellie is very smart and has turned into a great hunter. Lee reported that Ellie did more to train him to pheasant hunting than he did to train her. She hunts close and has a great nose. Ellie has been to Minnesota, Colorado, Kansas and mostly Wisconsin hunting.
The eyes are open. Surprisingly the pups are very calm with just being able to see. Probably due to grand girls Ellie and Olive visiting the pups.
The pups are just opening their eyes now. Starting to move around more. As they begin to see the are scared of sudden movement, a learning process. I had a hard time taking pictures as they were moving so much. Ellie named the pups after her characters in Frozen. Sorry about the poor picture of Elsa. Olaf is still available.
Lilly had her pups today. Four females and two males. We have one male still available. Colors: 4 liver & white, 2 mostly liver with some white on the feet and under the chest-stomach area.
We went to visit Don, Margaret and pups. Madeline, their daughter in law with Ellie and Olive were also visiting. Ellie and Olive both cried when they had to go home as they wanted to stay and hold the puppies. They will be back Sunday for another visit.
UPDATE: One of the liver & white female pup died overnight. All the rest seem very healthy. Pups go in Tuesday at 4 PM for vet check, dew claws removal and tails docked to half length.

Lilly is getting big with pups. She is due between May 12 till 18th. You can feel the pups moving around so it will probably be sooner rather than later. The welping pen is set up in the house and Lilly likes to go in it. Dondi & Margaret are excited for the big day. These will be Lilly and Elvis’s pups. Here she is on a recent hunt. Lilly jumped up on the hay bale to check out the birds.
Dear Bill, 4/29/17
Arlo is a delightful puppy. He is settling in nicely and we are making good progress on housebreaking. He knows his name and almost always comes when he is called. I know we need to get to always, but 90% seems good for one week in.
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of buying a puppy from Bill Schaller. It was a wonderful experience. Not only did we come home with a beautiful puppy, but the larger experience we had with Bill and Terry Schaller was great. Bill uses his website to communicate “news” about the puppies from the day they are born. Over time we saw pictures of each of the puppies complete with temporary names (picked by his grandchildren), the puppies visiting a local school and other “adventures” that got them off to a great start on socialization.
Having the chance to meet both the parent dogs and the Schaller’s other adult dogs gave us a chance to see what our puppy could be like once he grew up. They were all attractive dogs with delightful personalities. It was a pleasure to interact with them and get to know them a little.
Finally, on the day that we picked up our puppy, Bill provided a DVD on training, a large bag of high quality food, an initial health report from a local veterinarian (the puppies already had their first vaccinations) and forms to be used to register our new dog. All unexpected. All very much appreciated. Bill assured us that he was willing to stay involved in our puppy’s progress and having his experience and expertise to draw on is going to be a great resource.
My wife and I can recommend, without hesitation, buying a puppy from Bill for a wonderful experience that makes getting an amazing puppy extra special.
So thank you again….for Arlo and for everything else. Paul
Four of the pups went to new homes. Tanner is going Tuesday and Auggie is going May 8th.
