PUPPIES WITH THEIR NEW OWNERS

MARCH 17, 2018 - Today was a very hard day for us. ALL of the puppies went to their new homes today. We only get to have them for just a very short time, it's so hard to see them all leave at once. Our only consolation is the wonderful homes they are all going to. Most of the puppies from this litter actually went to people who already have dogs from us, so it made it so much easier knowing that these are people we trust completely with our pups.

PUPPIES AT EIGHT WEEKS OLD

MARCH 11, 2018 - Pups are 8 weeks old and went to the Vets today for their first shots, health checkups and to get their Health Certificates for when their new owners come to pick them up next Saturday. It's amazing how time flies so fast when you love what you do. It will be a very emotional day when they leave us.

FEBRUARY 25, 2018 - At six weeks old, the pups are really starting to show their personalities. They are always so cute at this stage, it is hard to believe they will be leaving us in a short three weeks. Tears are acomin'.

PUPPIES AT FIVE WEEKS OLD

FEBRUARY 18, 2018 - Grace is still nursing her pups every once in a while, but they are pretty much eating on their own. We are so used to pups that literally swim in their food, but this bunch are the most polite pups ever!! Although, we did find out why the drinking water was always so dirty ... they like to swim in it! LOL!!

PUPPIES AT FOUR WEEKS OLD

FEBRUARY 11, 2018 - At four weeks, these pups have really grown into some big healthy pups ... who love to sleep all day ... just like they will when guardian livestock ... because predators come out at night. You can get an idea of how big they are from the phone of the pup next to the food dish (flying saucer) ... it's 15" in diameter. That's one of the girl pups laying next to it.

PUPPIES AT TWO WEEKS OLD

JANUARY 28, 2018 - At two weeks old, the pups' eyes have opened and they have gotten busy playing with each other, puppy growling and barking. It is such a cute time in their growth to watch. As you can see in this photo, their independence is starting to show early.

PUPPIES AT ONE WEEK OLD

52 days gestation 52 days gestation

JANUARY 5th, 2018 - Grace at 52 days gestation is definitely preggers, so time to set up a Vet visit for x-rays to get a puppy count.

DECEMBER 20th, 2017 - Grace is definitely acting like she is preggers, but still too soon to be sure. The next two weeks will be long.

NOVEMBER 13th & 14th, 2017 - Grace was bred to Taz these two days, so now we wait for the next five weeks to see if it took.

NOVEMBER 4th, 2017 - Grace came into season today, so next Monday she will go in for her physical to make sure everything is good. Grace & Taz will also get tested for Brucellosis.
