a big day for the pups

Today the pups tasted real food. I fed Sadie a bowl full of cut up beef tongue. The pups smelled the meat and went crazy. One climed in her bowl and started sucking on the meat. He then took it out and was happily sucking on the chunk of meat. The others were joining him. Sadie said thank you very much that is mine as she plucked it out of their mouth. So I thought ok lets try some rice pablum and goats milk. I feed them individualy for a few days to start. It cuts down on the mess. They got messy enough and Sadie enjoyed licking it off of them :-) I took a few pictures and in the end they passed out and looked so content

I also did a video of Pink girl trying to play with Sadie.

Every day the pups are more interactive

The pups are becomming so much fun. They come to you and climb in your lap for cuddles. They are going to the paper to go to the washroom.

It is funny to watch them try and play with each other. They growl and bite on each other and fall over and just make me laugh all day. It is even harder to get something done now.

I can feel their teeth coming in. Wont be long until Sadie is not as happy to stay with them all the time

Enjoy the pictures you can see them playing with each other :-)

more puppy fun

The pups are really starting to interact. They notice me now and want to climb onto my lap for a snuggle. I of course have to obilge them :-) They have even noticed the toy I put in with them. Grabbing each others tails and then falling over. Just to funny. They are also trying to go to the paper to go to the washroom. That one is important !! Saves lots of work if they go on the paper. Enjoy the pictures. Dont forget to check the albums as I update them with each pups individual pictures.

Happy 2 week birthday little ones

The pups are two weeks old. They ahve accomplished a lot in two weeks. They have figured out where the milk is coming from . Learned to pee without help from mom. Opened their eyes . To me the cutest thing was today when one grabbed a hold of another and fell over. So they have started to play. I have started their own albums today. I only have a couple of pictures in each one from today. I will go through all the other pictures and add to it. Here are a couple of their 2 week pictures. They are growing like weeds. They weigh from 2 3/4 lbs to 3 1/4 lbs. They love to eat. Poor Sadie they are glued to her night and day. Hope you enjoy the pictures

The pups eyes are opening

Well it is nice to see their little eyes. They look like real pups now not little guinea pigs. The time is going by so fast. Their eyes are opening next they will get out of the whelping box and be running all over ! that is when the real work begins. Sadie does the poop clean up now , soon she will be happy to pass it over to me. Then comes the feeding 4x a day. I should be enjoying them now while I have the time :-) I guess it is hard to spend more then 24 hours a day with them though!
Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy. I am going to start making individual albums of them. Starting with their 2 week old pictures

A Happy 12 birthday my dear Bogie

Bogie would have been 12 years old today. He died May 17th 2008 at 11 1/2 and 2 days. Bogie is Sadie's dad so the grandfather to the puppies. He is enjoying his time the other side of the rainbow bridge with the love of his life Hannah. Who is Sadie's mom. He also has a few other girlfriends to keep him comfy and happy to. Although I doubt Hannah will put up with that !! We wish you were here for your birthday and to enjoy your grand kids
Bogie loved the puppies

A cute puppy video

The pups just keep growing. You would think sitting and hanging out with little creatures who cant see or hear or do anything except eat and poop would be boring . Well not to me. I love everything about them. The sounds they make the way their little tongues seem to be to big for their mouths. How they all pop up as soon as they smell me. hmm is this something I should worry about. They have only one thing on their mind. Suckling. Pick them up and they look for something to latch onto lol.

Here is a cute video of the pups just sleeping with their little twitches and sounds

Plus a link to the album with more pictures from today. The newer pictures are at the end of the album

More puppy pictures

I love sending taking pictures of the pups. They are such great subjects. Well what else will I talk about and take pictures of seeing as I spend 24 hours a day with them. They are so funny. Ms pink is very voacal and lets me know she is starving and I should make sure she has food available at all times and why is her mother not delivarying this. They are toddling all over the whelping box now. Heaven help me in a couple of weeks when they are really mobile lol. They are roly poly little furballs. Enjoy the pictures I loved taking them and sharing them. There will be more tomorrow :-)

We are 1 week old !!!

Happy 1 week birthday to the squirmy 6. Thank you to everyone who wrote about our little green boy. I also want to make it known we had 2 greens. A dark green and Lime green. So when you see pictures of Lime boy just know he is all right.

The pups are really growing now and are moving about a bit :-) They weigh from 1 3/4 lb to 2.4 lbs. They already are starting to show a bit of personality and will wiggle over to me and try and climb in my lap when I sit with them. Of course they think I have food and latch onto anything they can. They have favorite nipples and it seems they all want the same ones. Poor Sadie. She is a fantastic mom and washes every inch of them several times a day. Yes they complain about that!

Here is a video of the furkids. Not to exciting they are eating but it is nice to hear them

And then there were 6

I am heart broken to say good bye to my little green boy. Yesterday morning I woke up to the sound of a puppy with a high pitched cry. I knew that cry was not good. I found who it was and it was little green boy. He was fine at 4am but at 5 am he was in pain. His tummy was hard so I figured he was a little colicky and gave him some fennel tea.It is good at dispelling gas. I also gave him some coconut oil as that is instant nutrition with no digesting needed. Nutrition and energy he was going to need. I gave him some rescue remedy to calm him down also. He lay on me as I rubbed his back. He finally calmed down and the swelling seemed to go down a bit. He was starving and I thought a little dehydrated too. So I made him a bottle of goats milk with pedialyte. He drank it like he was on the Saraha desert. I made sure not to give him to much. Then his tummy swelled again and he screamed and cried. Time for the vet. We went to the vet who is experienced with neonatal pups and they gave him a stool softner and Sub Q fluids. He pooped and then seemed to finally relax. I took home some more stool softener and some ringers solution to inject in a couple of hours.

He was in so much pain that I laid down with him under my shirt all day. He liked that and every once i awhile would cry so we would go and try and get him to poop again. He did a couple of times. Now he was getting tired and a pup this young can go down hill so fast. I called the vet again worried that he was not getting any nutrition. I went in to the vets to pick up a bag of Ringers solution in case he dehydrated again during the night. His temperture had dropped so much at this point you could not get it to register on the thermomitor. He was warmed up until it came up. We gave him more fluids and tube fed him. I brought him home and was going to feed him by tube every 2 hours and give him fluids every 4 hrs.

Well the little muchkin died a couple of hours after I brought him home last night. Poor baby never made it to his 1 week birthday. Sadie was so sad and licked and licked him like she was trying so hard to wake him up. Just broke my heart. She had me up every 1/2 hour to go outside. I think she thought he was out there. Today we all just laid low and Im played with the babies and snuggled them. I took more pictures too. I just wanted some time with Sadie and the pups.

Even though he was so young and so tiny he made a big impression in my heart and I am sad for who he will never be

Puppy update

The pups are doing great. They had lost a little weight in the beginning but have now put it back on. I swear they wait until I get into bed to start whining and moving all over. Maybe Sadie encourages them so I dont get to sleep !! I hear every noise they make and have to sit up and look to see if all is well. Needless to say I am a little tired. Sadie is a wonderful mom and washes then until they complain. I have taken lots of pictures . I will update the pictures daily and include them in the puppy album. Savannah and Heidi feel left out. Heidi sat in my store with my friend on Saturday and whined and complained. She let her know it was not ok to not be the baby anymore :-) I love holding them and listening to all their little snuffles . Enjoy the pictures

To all anxious puppy parents

I know everyone wants to know what is going on and if there are enough pups etc. I will try and answers everyone as soon as I can. My computer service for some reason is sketchy and I dont have time to deal with it :-) These pups may be small but are keeping me on my toes.

I am not ignoring anyone and will be contacting everyone soon.

The pups are all great and I will post more pictures soon.

Hugs Lori
