PUPPIES IN THEIR NEW HOMES
July 1, 2016 -- All the puppies have now gone to their new homes ... it's a very bittersweet time for Linda & I. We miss them terribly .. but we are very happy they have all gone to such good homes!
PUPPIES AT 7 WEEKS OLD
May 12, 2016 -- At seven weeks old, we always try to get stacked photos of the pups ... however, they don't always cooperate as you can see above!! LOL!!
PUPPIES AT 4 WEEKS OLD
April 21st, 2016 - At four weeks old, Grace's pups have been moved into the barn, where they have a lot more room to play and drive mom crazy! Grace is still a great mom, but she is loving the fact that the pups are eating regular food most of the time. Those little teeth and claws were getting to be a bit much!!
This was the pups first experience with food that didn't come from Mom!!
PUPPIES AT 3 WEEKS OLD
April 14th, 2016 - At three weeks old, Grace's pups have been moved to the barn, so Marli's pups can move to the whelping box in the cold room. The pups are very full of themselves, eyes are all open, and they are all play growling and wrestling like champs ... soooo cute!!
PUPPIES AT 1 WEEK OLD
March 31, 2016 - Grace has turned out to be an exemplary mom ... she keeps her babies spic and span clean, along with the whelping box. Nothing gets by her! These babies are so sweet. Usually the really young babies don't like to be picked up away from their mom, but these little guys just cuddle right into you when you pick them up ... we are going to have some awesome temperaments in this litter!!

March 24, 2016 - Grace decided she didn't need our help. She just started having pups and kept on having them in a little less than four hours. She cleaned up all her babies and then herself. She is such a little "Donna Reid". All we had to do was pull out the stained pads we had layered in the whelping box and "voila" ... clean box!!! Sure wish every whelping could be this easy.
