“Behind the Scenes”

Day 26

As the puppies grow, I don't manage to get the time in to post as much as I would like. Here is my latest posting:

Last night, I climbed into the pool to sit with my puppies. I’d changed the bedding and sat down right in the middle of the pool. Once there, I was surrounded by the pups, eagerly trying to “taste” my shirt, my arm, my shoes, and any part of me that was within easy reach of their mouths. I&#...

“Puppy Dreams”

Day 23

The puppies are quickly becoming more active, more reliable in responding to me and looking at me when I approach the pool. I like how they react to my presence now, and often will come to me when I lean down to talk to them and play with them a while.

It is almost time to start taking them outside, and also to start getting ready for their weaning time, which will likely be after next week, if Bianka is consistent. She has alr...

”The Day After”

Day 22

Last night all cooled off enough to be comfortable for the night. Tomorrow, the AC gets installed and the pups will be happier while they’re in the house. After that, they will be moved to the kennel and that will be their, and my, new sleeping area. That’s when their house-training lessons begin, too.

Watching and interacting with these puppies is extremely enjoyable. Day by day their personalities come to th...

“Active and Fun”

Day 21

As the day approaches, the sun rises out of the East and the pups are now getting a good start to their morning by suckling enthusiastically, the day is sure to become another warm one, one in which I must try to keep the puppies as comfortable as possible. The forecast said 91 degrees today. Well, that’s going to be a challenge for all of us.

Yesterday, the heat had pups panting and gave me the opportunity to wash eac...

"Good Puppies" Day 20

“Good Puppies” 

Day 20

With their moths wide open the pups are now attacking each other, tails wagging and then falling over from the effort they put into their little lunges for their litter-mates. It is funny to see them look so “vicious” and hear the little growls that only promote my own desire to join in the fun. What I do instead, is to video-record them so that I can later enjoy their antics anytime, and share them with others...

"Wagging Tails and More"

Today, I was licked by Tulip, and she managed to mouth my fingers while kicking me with her back legs. Thor walked over to me, looked me in the eyes as he stopped to contemplate whether he should keep coming closer or retreat. I'd been leaning over the pups' pool and talking to Izzi while she was happily rolling from one side to the other, as if she were enjoying biting my fingers with her soon-to-be-filled-with-teeth, mouth. I could feel her tiny t...

More Playful

Day 14

Every day the five pups get to get out of their pool enclosure to be carried around a little and become accustomed to handling and different areas of the house, while still in my arms. They all relax and even become limp as I carry them around, supporting their legs and big bellies. They grunt on ocassion and sometimes they whine, too, but that's not so often.

Puppies, Day 13

While the puppies grow day by day, I watch as they still struggle to get from one location to the next. I can’t help but laugh a little as they try so hard to move about their little world. Today marks the 13th day of their lives outside their mother’s womb.

When I look at them, I see more reaction to outside stimuli, especially from Tulip (white-collar female). Tulip appears to absorb any attention she is given, and reciproca...

“Model Citizens”

I begin this log at this time because the pups are at the cusp of when they start to exhibit their unique personalities. They are now twelve days old. Their eyes began to open with just thin, little slits, allowing me to see part of the shiny eye behind them. Oh what excitement that brought to mind, as I imagined what was still to come, now that the pups were starting to open their eyes!

They cannot yet see well, but they will become more...

Super-Puppies

With the arrival of the expected litter on the 23rd (approximately) of May, Bianka is wider, and heavier as of this post. We are very excited about this litter, for this litter is the culmination of all our efforts to provide the healthiest, most intelligent, able puppies for your consideration as your next companion and four-legged family member. These pups are our thid-generation, raw-fed and unvaccinated pups. We feel these pups will be akin to Super-puppies, because of the superior health...
