Puppies - Week #6
The puppies are eating solid food and drinking water from a bowl. They are eating what they will eat once they go home, just a little more often and with some from mom as well. They are lots of fun and love to play now. They are going outside 4 times a day and doing well with the cold. They love to play with balls, just like there mom. She would play fetch all day every day if she could. Getting really close to home time, exciting!
Puppies - Week #4
What a big week the puppies had. They learned to eat mushy food from a bowl, they had their first real bath, and continued on with grooming. They have started to enjoy playing and we have been introducing them to new toys. I used treats for this week's photo shoot to see how they would react.
Puppies - Week #2
Merry Christmas from the puppies. We are definately going with a Christmas theme for our photo shoot this week. I'm also starting with puppy #7 and working backwards. Just to change things up a bit. The puppies all have their eyes open. They are dark blue but will likely change colour in the coming weeks. They have started on their grooming schedule. I do the front nails one week and the back nails the next so they get used to it but don't get overwhelmed by having them all done at once. They will get there dewormer every other week starting this week and will get a bath around 4 weeks and right before home time.
Puppies - Week #1
The puppies are doing great. They have all gained weight since their birth. They are too small for their collars but I have assigned the colors. For now I can tell them apart from their markings. Next week they will have their eyes open. Exciting to watch them grow. I will post video on my Facebook page.
Puppies - Day 3
The puppies and mom are settling in well. They are all feeding well. We will gradually start to handle them more often now. They are spending most of their time sleeping or eatiing right now. They are super cute to watch.
Puppies - Day 1
Puppies - Week 7
I can't believe the puppies are 7 weeks today. We are going to miss their snuggles so much. They really want to be with us now which makes taking video and pictures tough. They just want to be held. They are eating regular puppy food and water now to get ready to go to their new homes. They love play time outside. Today is a big day as we will be going to the vet for their first vaccination and microchip. They will be getting their nails freshly clipped and a bath next week so they go home all fresh and ready to snuggle.
