The pups have left to their new homes

Yes I knew they had to leave when they were born. I just dont understand how 8 weeks can go by so fast !! It is so much work raising a well adjusted litter of pups. It is also very sastisfying to hear back after they leave that the pups settled in so well. In some ways it is insulting that the little brats dont miss you !! But in another it makes me very happy that I helped them learn and that they have enough confidence to get through this. Here are the pictures with the happy moms and dads including me and my girl Emma

The count down is on until the pups leave !

How is it possible that 8 weeks have almost come and gone. My little babies have grown up enough to leave for their new homes. We have been busy getting ready. Angela came on the 26th to tattoo them . We use a pen to tattoo their bellies. It does nto hurt them but they hate to be held while she does it. My tattoo series is KCF everytime we have to remind outselves not to do KFC lol. This years letter is U so now my tattoos are. KCF U lol.

Today they had their shots. We just do parvo and distemper. Then later Betty McHugh came and did their puppy evaluations. Betty is an all breed judge and also does puppy evaluations. They are done with measurments. She was very impressed with these pups and said not only were they very stable in temperment but a really nice looking litter :-) I was only a little proud :-)

The first pup leaves on Monday. I will take lots of pictures of them between now and then. After they leave I hope their new moms and dads treat poor grannie with lots of pictures. Here are a few fun shots of them from yesterday

Merry Christmas

The pups were so helpful :-) We did try and get some pictures of them in front of the tree. Lets just say this is as close to doing that as we got !! They saw so many fun things so staying and sitting nice was very ver low on the agenda

The pups outside playing

7 weeks old today. Wow where has the time gone. I could hold them in one hand. They were so sweet and innnocent. Well hard to say that about them now. They are officially land sharks and if it moves they bite it. Ok does nto have to move. Pull off your socks eat your nose. Then of course lick you to make you feel better. They are vocal and love to wrestle and sound like they are eating each other. Their appitites are growing by the day !!

The best thing they love is going outside. No matter how cold or how much snow open that door and they want out !! Here are some pictures from yesterday and today. Enjoy the photos

Finally feeling a bit better so feel the need to catch up with pictures.
The pups love being outside now. They dont care what the weather is like. These little land sharks oh yes turned 6 weeks and figured out what teeth are for !! Well they are not afraid of anything. Try keeping them away from scary stuff. It jsut means oh this must be soemthing fun !! Navy Blue boy had learned if you go up the stairs into the kitchen you can come through the posts onto the back of the couch and jump on the poor unsuspecting person sitting there !! Evil furkids is what they are !!

puppies outside in the snow

We had a good dumping of snow last night. It was pretty cold so I was not going to bring them outside. They were really interested in going out so I took them out to the side of the house. They ran around and enjoyed it for about 5 minutes. They are now sound asleep :-)

Enjoy the few pictures that I took

puppy update

The pups are growing and interacting. They have teeth and know how to climb out of the whelping box. They like coming into the family room and interacting with Heidi and savannah. The cats just stare at them. They can bark and growl and whine and like to all . They bite each other and give lots and lots of kisses.

They LOVE their food and have had chicken and turkey,beef,salmon and even lamb. I give them a bone to chew on while in the whelping box to amuse them.

They have loved having visitors and enjoy being spoiled. If the weather stays nice I will have them outside in a few days.

enjoy the pictures there are lots more to come
