It is incredible to think that the little pups are now 5 weeks old, we don’t know where the time has gone but we do know that in that time they have developed into beautiful little puppies with wonderful characters. They seem to take up most of our day but who is complaining, we live by our motto in breeding happy dogs for happy homes. They certainly look contented don’t they.
Bet you cant do this with your ears little one!! Mother and Daughter Bonding
We can hardly believe 4 weeks have passed so quickly, from not doing much for the first 2 weeks of their lives into developing into independent little characters with lots to say and lots of love to give including the nibbling of ankles with their tiny teeth. It is hard to believe that in four weeks time they will all be going to their new homes but with the satisfaction that they will be loved, looked after and cared for for their whole lives. We are so careful in where we place our puppies, sometimes really annoying people when we say no. But we were responsible for bringing the puppies into this world and are responsible for finding the best possible homes for them. If that annoys some people then so be it. So, that said, we are delighted in the homes we have found so far for our little guys, we still have three girls available looking for that perfect person/couple who can give our little girls the best that life has to offer. If you think you are that person then we would love to hear from you.
Here are some photos taken today of our beautiful puppies .
The puppies are all now over 2 kilos and have started being weaned which is very messy but they are eager and are eating well. Today they ventured outside for the first time as the weather is less hot than it has been of late.
The puppies are now 20 days and we have decided that we need some sleep at night, so they are now big and beautiful enough to look after themselves at night. Mind you although we will be in our own bed our ears will still be open and therefore we will probably have less sleep than before.
As you can see they are all adorable each with their own character. Some pictures of them taken a little earlier ..
Today the pups are two weeks and three days old so time for their first worming experience. It does not lend itself for a great photo opportunity as it was a very messy experience for all concerned. The pups are now white but with a rosy pink mouth, very attractive. Maybe photos will follow later ……………………..
Nine happy contented puppies all lined up at the milk bar. Ten days old and a couple of the pups have opened their eyes today seeing us and their surroundings for the first time. They are all beginning to walk as well so the whelping box will be extended this weekend to accommodate their natural sense of adventure.
