Tomorrow is temperament testing of Charlotte x Rocky's litter!

Happily, I have a guardian home for Hannah McCall and I am sure the clients that have sent deposits are anxiously waiting to see which one will be their new companion. I will be so happy to know what pup will be available for sale and I can get to the business of preparing the puppy packets for December 12th pick ups. So, stick around for my phone call!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are now looking forward to the Christmas holiday season and sharing all the wonders with our grandchildren. :+)

SEVEN WEEKS! Charlotte x Rocky litter are 'little doggies' now.

This has been the week of outdoor experiences! The pups are enjoying the outdoor playtime and some have learned to use their weight to open the dogie door. A few are still a bit hesitant but gaining courage.

They love romping all over the place and sometimes Daisy goes out with them and stirs everything up by leaping and racing in circles around the caterpillar tunnel. The pups try to follow but it is like watching a slow motion movie as Charlotte is behind and passing before they get several steps in. :+)

Eating like champs now and look forward to feeding times. They are doing lots of potties outdoors when I send them out but indoor potties are still 'hit or miss'.

Coats are coming in thick and fluffy and eye trims are always necessary.

All the pups are wearing a 'Giving Thanks' scarf to celebrate the holiday! Enjoy your Thanksgiving everyone and I hope you 'gobble till you wobble' with friends and family.  :+)

The Teal Boy  weighs 7 1/2 lbs at 7 weeks.

Black Boy is 5 lbs at 7 weeks.

Caramel Boy tips the scale at 4 3/4 lbs. :+)

Purple Girl is 5 lbs at 7 weeks.

Pink Girl, named Hannah, is 6 lbs at 7 weeks. Hannah has a guardian home!

Green Boy at 7 weeks weighs 5 3/4 lbs.

A couple of videos of the pups for you to enjoy over Thanksgiving break!

Here are the six week pics for Charlotte's litter!

Sorry for the delay but had two dogs get into rat poison and it has been a very busy 36 hours at the vets! Both will be fine, thank goodness but BIG lesson learned for hubby.

The pups are becoming busy bodies - some more than others but enjoying some brief time outdoors. They are monopolizing the puppy room and enjoying a few visitors. Teeth and nails are sharp, eye trims are needed weekly and clean ups are all up to me as Charlotte is back home 100%. I hope it won't be too rainy tomorrow so they can enjoy some fresh air. Hubby did finish putting up a roof to keep the snow off of them but there are a few tiny nail holes that might leak raindrops!

6th week - Purple Girl 4 1/2 lbs. Coming into her own. A 'smarty pants'. Only pup that can use the dogie door at this time.

6th week. - Teal Boy 6 3/4 lbs. Loves to be on a lap getting all the attention. Likes to play tug.

6th week - Black Collar Boy 4 1/4 lbs - full of energy and charm!

6th week - Caramel Collar Boy 4 1/4 lbs. A somewhat quiet and gentle personality.

6th week - Green Collar Boy 5 1/4 lbs. - another soft tempered boy much like Caramel.

6th week. - Pink Collar Girl 5 1/4 lbs. My keeper for an ADNE Guardian Home. 'Sweet and Sour' like a good sauce!

Charlotte's litter has had a busy day!

It was a rather nice day this morning with minimal wind and lots of sun,  so I left the door to the outdoor pen open to see if the pups would venture outdoors. They took to the outdoors like fish to water.  :+) None of them were scared at all and loved doing some exploring. Once I was done, I put them back into their indoor pen (much to their LOUD complaints) and created a small outdoor area for them to run around in. Here are some pics of them outdoors:

Pink Girl,  Black Boy and Green Boy (whose eyes are so gorgeous!)

Caramel, Black, Pink, Green and Teal watching me. Purple girl was too far away to be in this pic.

They liked checking the items in the pen out.

Pink Girl was more interested in what I was doing.

Seems I am more interesting than anything else.  :+)

Then we had some visitors who will be bringing one of these cuties home in early December. The pups had a grand ol' time untying dad's shoelaces and climbing on his daughter's lap to snuggle.

Caramel Boy is very sweet and gentle (and sleepy, I think!).

I did manage to capture some individual shots when the pups were outdoors and will share them as well.

Charlotte went back to her guardians today but....

Daisy slipped right in as smoothly as butter to nanny the pups. Her tolerance to tiny, biting teeth and tail pulling testifies to her sweet nature. (Not to mention them trying to find 'milk'!)

The pups eat three meals a day now and love exploring the puppy room. I would not be surprised if they manage to go outside this week. They will have to learn to push through the puppy door. It will be interesting to see if they are up to that challenge.

Visitors came today and they enjoyed all the handling and attention. Another family will come tomorrow. This is a great time for socialization.  :+)
