Halle x Schoggi Puppies ~ 5 Weeks

We were going to do some outside photos today but it’s getting dark now…..our day got away from us I guess, so we just did our shoot inside this evening.  I usually don’t have any help with the pics so thank heavens our pups were so-o-o patient and cooperated with me!  Love these guys!  We are making good progress with early weaning efforts.  The puppy mush was a total hit….now we will start them on kibble.   Halle’s still plugging along nursing her babies but I can tell she is really more interested in just playing with the “kids” rather than dealing with their sharp little “pirhanna-like” teeth much longer!!  🙂  Thanks so much for following our puppies through the weeks….there is so much more to teach them in the time I have left with them……more adventures ahead!!  Have a fun Labor Day weekend everyone ~  All our puppies have forever homes waiting for them.  🙂

Halle x Schoggi Puppies ~ 4 Weeks

Our newest adventure…..intro to weaning……This week we started puppy mush which is rice flavored baby cereal mixed with goat’s milk.  Yum!  They dove right in, literally, and loved it!  Being pudge muffins already and with adding cereal, they are looking like little pot-belly pigs!  Halle is still nursing them but will slowly wind down over the next couple of weeks.  I feel some sharp little teeth breaking their gums now…….no doubt Mom will be glad to have them move to kibble sooner than later.  So did I mention how much a adore this litter??? 🙂  They are just the sweetest pups ever……so generous with puppy breath kisses and cuddles.  Oh, and they discovered chewing on my hair now is a fun thing to do too  🙂  You can really see in these photos how quickly they’re growing and changing!  Amazing!!   Thanks so much for taking a peek our Schog and Halle puppies each week.  Just wanted to give a quick shout out to all the kiddos going back to school !!  Have a great year everyone! !  🙂

Halle x Schoggi Puppies ~ 3 Weeks

Okay, now we’re talking….our puppies are really starting to look and act like pups!  Like I mentioned in my last post, this is the week I love the most.  My babies are discovering the world!!!  Everyone’s eyes are open and they are rocking and rolling all over the place!  They know my voice now, so heads perk up when I call “puppies,” and little tails are wagging…..so cute.  They have also started doing some play-fighting, batting their paws at their littermates to play, mouthing noses and rolling one another over.  Now and then they let out a quick yippy-bark that comes out of no where as if to say, “hey, look at me….I’m a big dog, just in a little package!”  🙂  Our next adventure this week is having them try eating some puppy mush, yum!!….they will pretty much just take a bath in it at first…..a huge mess but so funny to watch them wallow in it!  Here is our crew at the 3-week mark.  Thanks so much for taking a peek at our little munchkins……have a great week everyone!

Halle x Schoggi Puppies ~ 2 Weeks

Some of the puppies have their eyes just starting to open this week so they’re looking more and more like “real” puppies now!!  🙂  Eating and sleeping are still what they do best at this point.  Mama Halle is taking longer breaks from her babies though, milling around with us more and romping outside with her pack.  Next week, the 3-week mark, is one of my absolute favorites!   The puppies will be moving around the whelping area learning how to walk (that’s always a hoot to watch them do their barrel rolls) and developing their senses…..noticing light, dark and movement, and they will be able to hear.   We’ll play a CD in their nursery that has all kinds of “sounds of the world” in it like airplanes, car horns, traffic, etc., and household noises of a vacuum cleaner, pots and pans, babies crying, etc……it’s a pretty cool early learning concept.  It helps prepare them for all kinds of sounds of daily life they’ll be exposed to very soon!  When you think about it, there’s so much for little puppers to learn!!  The photo shoot this week was a tad challenging as already they want to rock and roll, but I think they did great.  🙂  Thanks for taking a peek at our babies this week…..
