So Much Cuteness!

Really?? Box o' Puppies Revisited.

"You've got to be kidding--you really think we still fit in this box?
Yeah, yeah, it was cute the first time, but this is just plain crowded!"

A Celebration!

Hooray! Our tiny little four ounce puppy has doubled her weight! Today "Little Sox" (named after her four white toes) weighed 8.3 ounces! At 10 days old, she has reached the birth weight of her bigger brother--he has doubled his weight, too, so he is still twice her size :) This is a determined little girl--she's getting bigger, but just following her own growth curve.

We're walking.....we're walking......

Bella's litter is one week old!

Our little bitty girl that weighed just four ounces at birth, weighed in at 7.8 ounces tonight! She gained .8 ounces today, and didn't need to be tube fed! She gets stronger everyday--I think she is finally out of the woods!

Photo session today!

Halia's litter--two weeks old!

Girls collar colors are Purple, Pink and Dark Green
Boys collar colors are White, Lime Green, Blue, Yellow, Aqua, Red, Tan and Orange

Pink girl could not stay awake! Our conversation went like this:

Pretty Pink your eyes.
Do I have to? I'm soooo tired!
Please little girl, everyone wants to see your lovely eyes.

Box o' Puppies!

So tired after being weighed, doing Early Neural and Scent Stimulation exercises and whelping box being cleaned. It's a good thing we have no concept of personal space....

What a mom!

Halia refused to get out of the whelping box to eat dinner tonight, so I brought it to her. She ate her entire dinner without changing her position--the puppies draped across her front leg never stirred.

Mixing it up.....

Sometimes I sits and thinks...and sometimes I just sits.

What good mama dogs!

Halia and Bella are taking such good care of their babies! Both mama dogs are at maximum capacity, and yet their babies are still well-cared for and gaining weight. Bella has a tiny baby that is gaining very slowly, even with tube feeding. The little girl finally was able to latch on today--Bella carefully lay on her back while the puppy drank its fill. So proud of our girls and their beautiful babies!

Halia's litter is one week old!

This is the best we could do today for one week old puppy shots! I promise all eleven are in the pictures....if you look very closely at the middle picture in the collage, you'll see a toe right next to red girl's head--one of the puppies is tucked up at the top under the pig rail.

Everyone is doing well and gaining weight--it's such a miracle to watch them grow!

Puppies are here!

On June 9th, thirteen puppies were born over 14 hours! Mama Halia was a real trooper. Guardian parents came to help with much of the delivery--it was good to have the company, and Halia was so happy to see her family. Sadly, one puppy was born with a birth defect and another was too preemie to survive, but we have eleven gorgeous and healthy puppies. Congratulations Halia, Harvey and Spanky!
