E stands for Easy Going

Posted by Delores Smith on Friday, June 27, 2014,
Easy going is one of the best phrases I can come up with for the E Litter...just so happens to start with an E!  I admire them for how they transition with changes...the car ride to the vet....introducing them to the outdoor puppy area....no whining..no whimpering..they take it all in and enjoy it.  Every litter is different and I must admit this is one of the easiest I've had...6 puppies in itself is more manageable than 11.

Their growth rate is very good.  A lb every 2-3 days...so those smal...

E Litter 6 weeks Old!

Posted by Delores Smith on Sunday, June 22, 2014,
Big week for the pups. They had their first car ride on Thursday afternoon - the 6 week check up - my vet is 1/2 hour away.  I believe this is the first litter that did none of the "3Ps"  No puke....no pee...no poop there or back - I'm always armed with papertowels, washcloths, towels because it always happens.  They were such a well behaved group - hardly a peep or whine to and from the vet....I also made the trip to the person who tattoos the puppies - so quite an afternoon for them....they...

I am guilty guilt guilt of not posting any blogs.  Apologies...the time got away on me.  5 weeks old and getting livelier every day.  They're pretty sturdy on their legs and try running when they're in the back yard.  They are interested in every weed and leaf - for carrying, chewing or just swatting at.  This is the week when I have that "ah ha" moment..the moment I see that they are bigger.  This is also the week where I increased their food intake...they went from not finishing everything ...

E litter - Messy Munchkins

Posted by Delores Smith on Sunday, June 8, 2014,
4 weeks old!  This was a big week for the E litter.    On Wednesday I introduced them to puppyfood that was put through a blender and soaked in hot water to make a nice fine mush.  They loved it!  Typical feeding - noses down - the smaller ones climbing on top of the dish for a better angle...groans of being full after the frenzy...then licking the morsels off each other faces and paws.  Gloria comes in to finish off any leftovers and they seize the opportunity for a few sips of milk.  I fed ...

Posted by Delores Smith on Tuesday, June 3, 2014,
It's amazing how much developing a puppy does in 21 days.  From blind and deaf and totally dependent on mom to seeing and hearing and responding when i walk in to walking around and play fighting.  The process amazes me every litter.
Puppies will staying in their whelping box 1 more e week  - on the weekend I will move them to a bigger room.  On Thursday I will start feeding them puppy food that has been soaked in hot water and put thru a blender...will resemble a very fine mush which t...
