Here's a note from David, Melanie, and Bastian and some recent photos of their Icelandic Sheepdog puppy Vinlands Tully Lulu.

It's been quite the busy summer.  Tully will be 6 months old this weekend and I can't believe how fast the time goes by.  Here are some photos of Tully from the last two months. (Clicking on photos will enlarge them.)

Posing on Cobblestone beach.  She is very striking.

She's a bit over 23lbs is cutting in her final set of molars. 

Tully enjoying a good splash in the pool.
She just finished her first training class (not counting puppy kindergarten).  She started out as the "Barkiest" of the bunch but by the end she was a perfect lady.  She is quite smart and was really enjoying her final few classes.  I can't wait for her advanced class and recall class we'll be doing over the next 2 months.  Such fun! 

 Tully enjoying her first camping trip.

Tully has been very busy over the summer going on camping, hiking and beach trips.  She got to watch an amazing 4th of July fireworks presentation on the Washington coast and had no issues with them (we worked on that beforehand). 

 Bastian and Tully are eating alpine strawberries (which is allowed).

Everyone that meets Tully loves her and the breed.  I enjoyed getting to see the recent photos of Lizzie as she and Tully are so similar. 
 Tully and her best friend Amber are both exhausted after romping around for an hour.

I saw you are contemplating repeating the breeding.  Based on how amazing the pups are I would lean that way myself, assuming you and Totty are up for it. 
 Tully loves to dig in the sand and is quite good at it.
(She's only allowed to dig in sand.)
Take a look back at the recent blog for Lizzie! They really look like sisters, don't they? They both have sable (darker hairs) along with their tannish hair. Tully's are black, Lizzie's are chocolate-brown. If you've never tried Swiss Alpine Strawberries, you really must. Eating them is almost like eating perfume. They are amazing. Mine are white when ripe and I prefer them because the birds don't realize they are ripe. I do not share mine with my dogs however! Ha!
