Love Litter - in the home stretch

Posted by Delores Smith on Friday, October 17, 2014,
At 7 weeks old, we're in the home stretch with the Love Litter.  7 weeks goes by quickly and it's an amazing 7 weeks when you look back at pictures from August 29 and compare them to now.  Very proud of these puppies...big and beautiful and healthy...cannot ask for more.  

I don't think this group of puppies has had an off day or off meal...every feeding is met with such gusto and they eat as though it's the last meal of the day.  They are nursing only 2x's a day - will go down to 1x daily thi...

Love Litter 6 weeks old!

Great week for the Love Litter...vet appointment on Thursday went well...not perfect but still good.  They are all healthy and weighed in heavier than any other puppies I've raised to this point.  Ms Pink has a Grade 1 heart murmer...hardly there...vet predicts it will be gone before the next vaccinations are done.  Mr Green's testicles have not descended...lots of time for that to happen...does not affect his life at all.  My vet was very pleased with the puppies...her first remark when she ...

It's been a good week so far - weather has co-operated so I've been able to take the puppies int he back yard to play.  How they love to explore and race around!  Can't get over how fearless they are - very willing to explore any part of the yard...curiosity gets the best of them.  Jazz is starting to play fight with them - quite cute to watch - she's very gentle but playful.  

Big today tomorrow - their 6 week checkup at my vet in Winkler.  After the appointment I take them to a fellow breede...

Love Litter Jazz x Duke 5 weeks old

How did we get to this point - the Love Litter has gone from little needy puppies to big beautiful pups!  What a lovely bunch of pups....they had their first outdoor adventures this week - weather and my schedule delayed that first outing...as a rule they see the outdoors at 4 weeks of age.  What a difference a week makes...at five weeks they are off and running around - exploring every leaf that moves....tearing around the yard.  At four weeks they are hesitant to leave the blanket i put on ...

Love Litter Jazz x Duke

My how they've grown!  Puppies are really thriving and developing into stunning puppies.  Their personalities are just starting to show....they are confident outgoing puppies.  Mr. Orange seems to be the most outgoing at this point.  

It's been a busy week so I haven't taken them outside...the plan is tomorrow, weather permitting.  First great outdoor adventure.  

Puppies are on a 4x a day feeding schedule...7 am, 12 noon, 5 pm and 9-10 pm...very important this schedule is followed in their new...
