And Then There Were Five Sunday

September 20, 2016
Our puppies are leaving the fold and it is hitting me hard this time.  They were such a great litter of pups.  Great chemistry between them.  Very loving and they all got along so well.  Although turning eight weeks brings with it fast speeds around our home, shredded piddle pads and more, they were a quite litter.  When I come down the stairs each morning at 6:45, they run to greet me, but no yelping or whining like all my other litters, just loving eyes and jumping at the xpen to see me.  If I rush around the corner quickly, they are silent, whereas other litters would yelp for 10 minutes and awaken the entire home.  They have been such a joy to raise and I hope are a joy to you.


Purple was the first to go and then Red flew out a few hours later.  I then flew Bentley and Jemma to San Diego on Thursday.  Friday, Orange left for home and Sunday Pink left.  It has been very hard saying goodbye.  Tomorrow, Sable leaves and then I have four of them until Friday when Black leaves, Saturday Ivy leaves and White may leave this weekend.  Then I have Grey all alone with his parents for a full week.  I am sure he will miss all of his siblings, just as his siblings have missed each other.
 

Please send me pick up information

September 12, 2016
Please send me your pickup date, and if you are flying in, I need your address, phone number and airlines for the USDA vet/health certificates on Tuesday morning.  Thank you.  I have some information from some of you, but it is buried in layers of emails, so a quick email is great for me.

I have had great fun with the pups all weekend.  They have such personality now.  They are still fairly quiet, but every once in awhile, I hear a bark, playful growl, and even trying to talk like their daddy....

7 1/2 Weeks Old

September 10, 2016
It is so hard to believe that the pups are already 7 1/2 weeks old.  They have been such a joy to raise.  They are quiet, playful and there is not one that is dominant or submissive.  What a perfect litter of very well balanced puppies.  Generally our pups will whine and bark when they see us in the morning, but this litter runs to greet us with very little noise.  We don't have one that is loud, that is a role model for the others, so it is such a joy.

On the other hand, they have learned to ...

Growing Like Weeds

September 6, 2016
They are growing up so fast.  My husband, daughter and I are continuously saying that we have not seen a litter like this one.  They are calmer and quieter.  They don't whine and bark for food.....EVER.  They are quiet when they see us in the morning, but greet us and want to play. They just are not as vocal and appear much calmer.  That is fine with me.....
All are doing well.  I have gotten reluctant to say much about them specifically any more, as most of you cannot see them and every word ...

Wonderful Pups

August 26, 2016
There are always one or two in every litter, that are off playing with something else when I crawl in the pen.  Not this litter.  All 11 drop what they are doing and run to me to play.  I don't recall a litter that 100% of the time, gave me 100% of their attention.  These are all real love bugs, look me right in the eyes, lick my face and are never startled by noises in the house.  What a great, balanced litter of pups.  I so wish I could keep them all.  They don't hurt one another.....yet, a...

Fun Night

August 24, 2016
The pups are now very social.  I came home from work and my husband and daughter had been playing with them.  I crawled in the pen to change their bedding and immediately, my skirt went in many different directions.  They love my long skirts and play tug o war with me.  I managed to clean up their pen, while entertaining them simultaneously.  I just love them.

They now all play with the stuffed animals that we have in their pen.  Some sleep on them and some sleep on each other.  They now have ...

We Have Moved

August 23, 2016
The pups have relocated from an upstairs den to our main level.  We no longer can sneak by as when they see us they just want to play and play.  What a life, I just love them.  It took them about an hour to settle in to their new home and they were quick to learn where to eliminate and where to sleep.  Amazing how smart a four week old puppy is.

This is the first litter that their white faces have turned pink when they nurse.  It is an enzyme in saliva, but I have never had this happen with pu...

Walking, Talking and Playing

August 14, 2016
The pups are now three and a half weeks old.  They are walking very well, playing for about a half hour after eating and love interacting with each other.  They have been licking mouths of other pups for about a week, but now are beginning to open their mouths to play with each other.  I saw one trying to grab the tail of another yesterday.

They now potty very well on their own and know enough to go to one side of their whelping box.  Next weekend, we will move them from the den to the run on ...

We Are Walking

August 11, 2016
All pups are now up and exploring their whelping box.  They have sailor legs but can get around.  They still primarily eat and sleep, but now spend about 5-10 minutes after a feeding, interacting with each other.  They lick the milk off of each others face, run in to one another, climb all over mom and sometimes do somersaults down her abdomen.

Their ears have dropped so they don't look like little bats any longer.  Their eyes are wide open and focused and today  noticed them tracking me with ...

Eyes Wide Open

August 6, 2016
The pups eyes are now wide open.  Some still have a slight foggy look as they start to interpret what everything they have been smelling for two weeks, looks like.  They just stare at me after a feeding.  I think they are too full to move much, so they just lay in my hand and look me in the eyes.  I often wonder what they are thinking and wish they could understand me, so they know how much they are loved.

They still "swim" around the  whelping area and can move quite effectively.  Some are no...
