I am glad we took a few minutes to think about the name…..   We came up with another one with a German link.  There is a
beautiful legend about the "lovely Loreli."   She was supposed to have been a beautiful woman (some stories, she was a
mermaid)  who sat upon a large rock in the River Rhine.  She sang to the sailors and combed her beautiful long blonde hair
… they all fell in love with her…. Loreli - aka Foxhunt's Lovely Loreli

Updates from my forever home!
Hi, Scarlett!
Well, we are having a ball with these
two stinkers!! We are verrrry tired
though... a bit sleep deprived. :) They
both know their names and they
understand what "No" means. They
have adapted to the crates in our
bedroom with little problem. We are up
about 4-5 a.m. for potty but they haven't
soiled the crates so far. We are getting
better at recognizing the warning
signs of the need to go outside so we
are not having too many accidents
inside now, There's not much time
between the subtle warning and the
accident! Poor babies, yesterday was
sooo cold and all day rain. We just
picked them up and carried them to
the pole barn so they could go.
Question... we have rocks in our drive and they insist on chewing on the rocks. I am so worried they will swallow one. Any
suggestions? I take it out of the mouth, say "no", and try to give them a stick or something else, but they LOVE the rocks!
I just wanted you to see a few photos to see we are all very happy and well. Had the vet check last week. Lily weighs 12
pounds and Loreli weighs 14 pounds. I am convinced we got the best of the litter! :) :) They are
soooo smart and lovable.                                                                                                           Take care, Nancy
The introduction to our mini's was so funny.  Loreli ran the other way, but Lily stood her ground.  Our "boys" are so gentle and
used to being around many dogs; they were just a little curious and then disinterested.
The girls were introduced to our 4 hens and 1 rooster today.... and the chase was on... dogs after chickens.  We only let the
chickens out of their coop for several hours each day.  So later we took the girls out on a leash to keep the peace.  
We are still working on having peace with the cat inside the house at night. Now the girls are not as frantic and loud about her;
they are progressing slowly to curiosity. But our cat tamed and made good friends with our previous dogs, of which 2 were
definite cat chasers. She is not aggressive toward dogs at all.  After a while, they all laid on the living room floor together each
evening.  So, I feel this will work fine after a while.
Thanks for putting the photos on their pages.  We are having so much fun with these sweet girls!!!

                                                                                                                     Take care. Franz and Nancy
