I wanted to give e-highfives and props to all the starter raisers out there. It’s not easy being a starter raiser, especially because it seems like all the “full-time” raisers don’t view starter pups as being as important or as “valuable” as puppies raised full-time. But being a 2-time starter raiser myself, I know how much time, effort, and love goes in to every starter pup.
So as Lawrence and Pomona’s starter raiser, way to go, good work, nice job, and woot (!) to everyone who has raised a starter pup. They totally DO count in your list of how man puppies you’ve raised, and are every bit as valuable as the long-term dogs. 😀
And to anyone considering doing a starter-pup, it’s a LOT of work, and you don’t get to see the pay off of all your work, but it’s fun having a cute baby around the house!
