Summer has passed since our May 4th report and we are approaching the peak of hurricane season (Sept 10) here on our tropic isle.
Here is what has been happening:

|New born dobermans.|
|A puppy pile.|
Doberman puppies at the vets arrived in three colors: black, brown, and blue.
We went to have a look at them the week after they were born. The parents were both registered dobermans bred for good temperment.
|Bobo, the puppy|

Of course you might want to make friends with her now while she is so tiny.
|Duckie is Bigger But Bobo is Faster.|
Somehow, while we were getting ready to receive Bobo into our family, we were convinced that what we really needed was a big friendly Great Dane puppy.
So one week after Bobo, Duckie joins our happy little family.
The cat, Inspector Clouseau was not amused.
First we moved him to a new location on Shoal Bay, 1/2 mile from our previous rental home. Clouseau went back to the old location every day to check for treats from the neighbors and patrol the land in between to ensure that no other cats tried to move in.
Then one of his favorite soft touch neighbors got their own cat and the other moved back to England.
Now these ridiculously large and eager puppies have moved in.
|Building a Fence.|
|Adding a tent.|
|Relaxing after a hard day.|
This is the temporary puppy home, until we move down into the main house. It has a nice fence, sandy bottom, running water, a planted grassy area to lounge on, and a tent to keep the sun and the rain off.

|Helping with the building.|
Since Bob is 6' 7", a Great Dane puppy is just the right size for him.
Bobo and Duckie love to help with the construction and greet visitors to the site!
