Is it really 8 weeks already?

Oh my goodness.   I can’t believe it’s been 8 weeks already.  We started the weekend with their first shots and 2 puppies are now in their new homes.  Both Reeses and Bill have gone to live with previous Bialy families and we love that, but we miss them!

Both Max and RoboPup are still looking for their families.   Both of them are pretty mellow and they both weigh about the same amount so will be about the same size as adults.  Robo carries alot more coat than Max, so he will have a fuller, thicker coat and Max will be a little easier to groom (a little).   Both are very people oriented and love playing with other dogs.  Either one would be good as an only dog or in a multiple dog home.

We also potentially will have a female available in a couple of weeks as we watch both of the girls grow and mature here and decide who will be the best addition to our breeding program.

Vet Visits :)

We are so lucky to have a vet that will come over on Christmas Eve to visit and examine our babies and bring their kids for some socialization.   Thank you Dr. Patten 🙂

Week 7! Tons of photos and a video :)

Yesterday we packed the super 6 up and drove to Loveland for their eye exams.  They all passed with no notations.  Yay!   They did cry a bit on the way there, but were pretty tuckered out and slept on the way home.    Of course, having pupachinos (whipped cream from Starbucks in a tiny cup) might have helped.   Today they had fun with the ball pit.   They loved jumping in and swimming around and bringing balls out to chew on.

6 weeks!

Puppies turned 6 weeks old this weekend.  Time is flying by and they are keeping us busy.  They get up at 5 AM every day to go out and potty which is VERY early but we are happy to do it because we haven’t had any poos inside for about 5 days now.   WooHoo! They are still eating softened food, dry kibbles and a little milk from mom when they can corner her.    Their personalities are really coming out and we’ve started sorting out who is a prospect to stay here and who is better suited for a companion home.   They have had a few sets of visitors and love visiting Grandpa through the fence.  Nothing seems to scare these puppies, even the vacuum, although our new vacuum is much more quiet than the old dyson.

This week we will continue with transitioning to all solid food.  We will continue socialization with lots of people and we will introduce some fun obstacles in the yard and pen.  Their eye exams are scheduled for Friday.  Fun trip in the car!  We will also start bringing them into the vet for their exams starting at 7 weeks.

Below are some 6 week photos.

5 1/2 weeks

Sorry the updates are slow.  The puppies are keeping us busy.  They have discovered the great outdoors and want to play outside whenever they can regardless of the weather.  They like discovering things to chew on (they are chewers) and love wrestling with each other and Malibu.  Malibu and Olive really like playing with them but sometimes they are a little rough and the puppies are really resilient.  No screams or cries.  Reese does a hilarious “fainting goat” impression whenever Malibu runs up to him I think because he knows she is going to roll him so he just beats her to it.  Smart guy.

They are sleeping mostly through the night and if we can catch them around 5 AM, we can get clean pads and they do their business outside.  Yay!

They are still nursing some (whenever they can catch Penny) and eating both solid kibbles and softened mush.

Their different personalities are starting to come out and I find myself saying “this one is my favorite” every time I pick one up.

4 weeks!

I’m a little late in putting these up.  Puppies have started (semi)solid foods this week and when that happens, Penny stops her clean up duties completely.  We’ve been busy keeping clean here.   They are now moved fully to the big kitchen pen and love it.  They are chewers!  Usually the puppies are satisfied with soft toys for a while, but these guys love the hard toys, like nylabones and hard rubber.   They also love playing with their big sisters (Olive and Malibu) and launch themselves at the fence whenever one walks by if they aren’t in the pen with them.   They are drinking water out of a bowl now and even crunching on regular kibbles.

I sure wish the temperatures weren’t frigid because I’m sure they would love being outside.  They all jump out of the pen whenever the door is open.  They still love listening to the Alexa and favorites this week are Christmas music, city sounds and Taylor Swift.   So far they haven’t really shown any fear for loud noises but I also have not vacuumed right by them yet so we’ll see.

New Digs

Today the puppies explored the kitchen pen today.  They will spend more and more time here over the next few days and eventually move here full time.   They were great and had no complaints.  Big sisters helping acclimate them probably helped too but I think these guys are pretty mellow.   They had their first licks of water today too.  Tomorrow they try mushy puppy food!   Fun!IMG_4982

Happy Thanksgiving!

Eyes and ears are open.  Puppies are playing with toys, chewing on each other and motoring around the box.  They are super fun!
