The puppies are keeping me very busy! They love to be out and about exploring the house and garden, they love to run about and play with the big dogs! They are fully weaned however Ruby will still feed them throughout the day! They are growing so fast and I can't believe it is only two weeks before they will be eight weeks old and ready to leave us. We are booked in to see the vet next week for vaccinations and chipping so I will report back.
The puppies are five weeks old! They are all enjoying playing together in the garden and have been out in the car a number of times! The weaning is going extremely well and they are already eating three meals a day as well as feeding from Ruby. Ruby is a very attentive Mum and Daisy and Dottie are forever playing with the puppies. The puppies are interacting with one another, playing, growling and barking. They are also interacting with their Mum and the other dogs who are all such great teachers!
I will get some individual pictures over the next few days.
The puppies are seven weeks old! Time is flying and they will all be leaving for their new homes this weekend. Daisy has done a great job with her litter, she is such a wonderful Mum; it is great to watch her teaching and playing with her puppies. These last few days are also an important time for the puppies to play, interact and learn from each other. They are all so friendly and all very confident! They love to play out in the garden and love their food. House training is going great and they are happy to spend time in the crate and away from the rest of the litter. Their coats are all coming in and curling up nicely! We visited the vet on Monday and they all passed their health check with flying colours!
Dottie is one today. I cannot believe how fast that year has gone. Dottie is such a large part of our family and such a fun loving girl. We love her very much and she has proved a real head turner. Over the last year she has managed to take a number of firsts in local dog shows and even took best in show at dogs live 2014. She has excelled at beginners agility and we are looking forward to taking the next step now she is old enough begin training with all the equipment. Dottie has been kept in long coat for the past year and is now looks like a scruffy teddy bear. Although she looks great it is very hard to keep, especially as we often walk through the farmers fields and off the beaten track! It is a magnet for sticks and grass seeds. This weekend I have decided to have her cut shorter... watch this space for her new look! Happy Birthday Dot, we love you more and more every day xxx
I must take the time to apologise to anyone who has taken the time to contact me in the last few weeks about litter availability. All available pups are now booked and I have not had the chance to reply to you all personally. On the back of our availability announcement I received well over 100 emails for four puppies. I must apologise to those who were waiting so patiently for availability announcements and are disappointed at not having the chance to visit the puppies. I have been waiting on schedules visits before being able to confirm all puppies are now booked hence the delay in this post.
Where has the last six weeks gone?! The puppies are growing and developing so quickly. They spend the majority of their day out playing. They love being in the garden and exploring. They are fully weaned but Daisy is still happy to feed them. I can't believe in less than two weeks they will be leaving me. We are visiting the vet next week for vaccinations and microchipping so I will let you know how they get on. They are all such a laid back bunch I am thrilled with how they are developing.
Pups are now four weeks old and on the go! They can now hold their own with Daisy's puppies are love being out playing with them. Weaning has started and they have taken to it really well! It is great to watch them grow and develop. Ruby continues to be a great Mum and is still being attentive although spending more time away from the now and catching up on some well earned rest. Today they have been outside in the sunshine and generally causing havoc around the house, its all great fun and helping to develop their little characters which are all starting to emerge.
