Halle x Orion Puppies ~ 4 Weeks

Our Halle and “O” puppies are growing up fast!  This litter is on the heels of Annie’s with starting their puppy mush very soon.  Their gums are pretty swollen now so some teeth should burst through soon!  Momma Halle will want them on some “real” food fast!! 🙂  We are getting ready to move the pups to a larger area to play in so they’ll love that.  They are a pretty mellow group of puppies but they will get wound up at meal time and at play for sure.  Here are our babies at the half-way mark…..:)  Thanks for looking!

Annie x Schoggi Puppies ~ 4 Weeks

This morning the puppies had their first “real” meal, a mush, with some rice baby cereal and goat’s milk.  Apparently they thought it was not only yummy to eat but found it a ton of fun to take a bath in!  🙂  Annie came to the rescue.  She cleaned faces up, well kind of, then she declared the rest was up to us.  She is still nursing her babies but is ready to start winding down a bit.  The pups are working hard on their housetraining skills and are getting the hang of that….what smart puppies!  So here we are at the four week mark….time is flying by!

Halle x Orion Puppies ~ 3 Weeks

At the 3-week mark, things are busier than ever in our world.  Cuddling our babies and taking pics of puppy antics is incredibly more fun than any old housework chores so the dust bunnies are waiting!!  The pups are starting to interact with each other, puppy play-fighting, chewing each other’s noses and tails.  I hear some brave attempts at “big dog” barks sometimes, too funny.  Little tails are happily wagging when it is our time to play.  The puppies are developing fabulous fleece coats and their personalities are lovely.  Kudos to Halle and “O” for making such beautiful pups for us!  Here are our puppies at the 3-week mark…..growing up happy, healthy and just plain adorable.  The expressions on their faces on picture day are priceless!  They look as if they are thinking……oh no, here she comes with the camera again…..has a week gone by already.  🙂

Annie x Schoggi Puppies ~ 3 Weeks

Three weeks …..my favorite!  Our crew is rocking and rolling now.  The puppies are play-fighting and biting each others noses, tails and toes.  They still nap but a bit less and are nursing standing up……making more room for all to eat!!  We are making things more fun and stimulating for them in their nursery by adding a baby gym and lots of toys.  We play all kinds of music for them including a special CD that has all kinds of “life” sounds on it, exposing them to different things they will hear as they grow up.  Puppies have so much to learn…..we  have a lot to teach them in a short time!!  They had their first “grooming” experience having their nails cut, such brave puppies.   Between our two litters, we trimmed 252 little nails.  Yikes!!  Here are our pups at week 3.  Thanks for watching our loves grow up!  🙂

Halle x Orion Puppies ~ 2 Weeks

Our pups are pudgy and happy at the two week mark.  This litter is so quiet and calm, probably due to full tummies and a lot of sleep!  Halle is a super Mom.  She is starting to venture away from the nursery a bit longer and wants to spend more time with us when her babies are sleeping.  The puppies are slowly starting to open their eyes and are learning to walk…..pretty funny to see their first attempts.  They lose their balance and do barrel rolls mostly for now.  I think they’re finding it difficult to manage their huge bellies swinging back and forth!!  🙂  We did get some pretty cute photos this week.  Our little loves wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Annie x Schoggi Puppies ~ 2 Weeks

All is good on Walt’s Mountain…..we survived the crazy ice storm with our trusty generator…..what a lifesaver!  Hope everyone has their power back.  Come on Spring!!  For this week’s update, some of the puppies are starting to open their eyes.  I am always amazed at how strong puppies are at this age in their movements as well as how vocal they are in their demands.  As I write this note, Momma Annie is cleaning her kids up and is ready to feed them.  Picture 8 little screaming puppies all scrambling for a prized position at the milk bar.  It’s controlled chaos at the moment; two little souls lost track of Momma so I took them over to her……okay everyone is happy now, all is quiet again, so yay!  Here are our little sweethearts wishing everyone much love and a Happy Valentine’s Day this week!!

Halle x Orion Puppies ~ 1 Week

Happy one-week birthday to our Halle puppies!  We have some chunky monkeys in this group with what I swear looks like double chins.  No wonder too, as they have set up shop at the milk bar pretty much 24/7.   Momma Halle adores her puppies though, never wanting to leave them for long, not even to take a break to eat.  We have been serving her room service in the whelping area so that suits her just fine.  Eyes will open as ear canals will in a couple of weeks.  They are such a quiet and calm little group of pups.  Hope you all enjoy our first individual photos of our babies….they are all so beautiful!!  Thanks for looking…..:)
