January 1 2021 - Happy New Years! The crew was out and about today enjoying a chilly day. Fleece jackets were welcome and the cold toes were so cute! Another pup goes home tomorrow while one will be staying on for a time. This will be our last posting for this litter, but look for them in other pictures and postings about our crew! We had such fun with this bunch! Thank you for sharing their first few weeks of life with us! We can't wait to watch all of them grow up!
December 22, 2020 - The weather finally warmed up from our cold snap and we have been getting outside. Pinecones, twigs and straw are the pups new favorites! Mom is a runner and has been zooming around the property with pups wanting to catch up to her! Boulder scrambling had to do for now though! Dad and grand dad have joined them on their outings making it a true family affair! Health checks are due this week with puppies starting to go to their forever homes shortly afterward. This has been a wonderfully rewarding litter of pups to watch grow. We will miss them!
December 13, 2020 - The weather has been frigid so we have been inside. We put up a second play area and are getting the pups accustomed to being separated. Today was their first time on the table and they each did amazing! 5-way shots were administered and microchips were placed. We hope to get the crew outside to explore the farm this week. If the weather remains too cold, we have set up a play area in our heated barn where we can introduce them to a variety of new activities. The pups are now completely weaned and are eating Fromm puppy kibble and once a week raw feeding. They enjoy their kibble dry or served with goats milk. Health Checks have been delayed as our regular vet's office is closed due to covid. We will have our traveling vet visit us next week. Once they are given an all clear, the puppies will start going to their forever homes!
December 6, 2020 - The weather was warm and sunny today so the puppies made their first trip outside to play with mom and Nanny Ambush. They were thrilled to run and explore our large deck. About an hour and a half is all they could take, but with the warm December we have been having we will be out as much as possible. Weaning is complete and Mom is starting to correct bad behavior...mostly from their biting her teats! This week they will have another round of worming and nail trims. Formal evaluations have begun and will continue through next weekend. We are preparing to take them in for health checks soon and we hope to offer our deposit families a pup once they they are completed!
November 29, 2020 - 7 weeks young today! The puppies have entered into the extreme cute stage! This is coupled with the raptor phase where they would like to chew on everything...including mom and us! Weaning is almost complete. We hope to introduce them to the outdoors this week if the weather holds out. We will start evaluating the pups starting this week as well. This group is maturing on the slower side so we will take our time with the evaluations. We believe maturing slowly is a good thing as they are taking their time learning all those lifelong skills! Once we know who is available (in about the next 2-3 weeks), we will start contacting deposit families! Please contact us if you are on our deposit list and have any questions!
November 22, 2020 - The puppies are now venturing out in their expanded play area and engaging in all the activities we have in place for them! They are very curious and unafraid of the obstacles and noisemakers we have have scattered around...good puppies! Weaning is starting with soft and hard kibble available at all times. Toenails have been trimmed for the first time and they will get their first round of shots this week. Personalities are starting to show!
November 16 2020 - The crew are growing and exploring more and more each day! Teeth are coming in and they are eating mom's food. Stimulating toys and activities greet them outside the whelp box and they are loving all the activities. Still very young, they don't last long at play and are soon back to sleep!
Nov 12 2020- Happy 1 month birthday! The puppies are starting to show interest in eating mom's food. They have finally ventured out of the whelping box to the play area are are playing much more. They have had their first toe nail trim and we are seeing little teeth break in! The fun is just starting!
Nov 8 2020 - It's amazing how much this group has grown this week! Fat little pups are healthy pups! They are starting to tripod and toddle and look out beyond the whelping box. They still spend most of their time eating and sleeping, but they spend a few minutes now playing with each other and exploring anything in their immediate vicinity. We expect to see some teeth coming in soon...
November 2, 2020 - We have eyes! The pups have finally opened their eyes and are starting to hear. They have gotten fat! Rag's is a great momma and keeps them well fed! They spend a lot of time sleeping still but we have noticed them starting to play a little! Here's looking at you!
October 25 2020 - Here is a first peek at Morag's first litter. Rags is settling in nicely with her pups! We couldn't be more pleased with her as a mum! All pups have doubled and almost tripled their weights! As newborns, they spend all of their time eating and sleeping. We expect to see their eyes opening very soon!
