Sadie and Baker are excited to announce that Baker wont be the only baby in the house this winter! Puppies expected arrive January 30-ish, 2024!
Sadie takes her baby "sitting" job very seriously! Ha! Ha!
Speaking of babies.... We should have exciting news to share within the next week or so.
Days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months so quickly! I can't believe it's been so long since we updated the blog.
Everyone is doing well here. Livie, Lola, Stella, and Sadie had a fantastic summer filled with loads of swimming- in pools, ponds, and puddles! We spent plenty of time at the cabin and enjoying a solid balance of sunshine and air conditioning!
The humans are staying busy and suffering from a major case of puppy fever! We are hoping to make some pregnancy announcements before the year ends... mother nature willing!
Photo of an "attention deprived" pup attached! How dare this human try to pay attention to a book over her.
Baker has exactly 3 words... Mama, Dada, and Lola!
These two make the sweetest pair.
Mister Rooney is the last pup here... as you can see, it's been really hard on him having the humans all to himself! Ha! Ha!
Look at these pretty pups!! I cannot believe they are already 8 weeks old.
Everyone is doing fantastic sleeping in their crates, going potty outside, and devouring every bit of kibble in their bowls.
They go silent for a bully stick, love toys that make crunchy sounds, and really get excited when people lay on the ground and allow them to pounce on them! Ha! Ha!
Goodbyes start in two days. So bittersweet, but we can't for their new families to meet them!
Kambrie said "I turned this pen into a heart and took pictures with the puppies in the heart because we LOVE our puppies... get it?" Ha! Ha!
The crew had a visit with the vet today and it really could not have gone better.
These little butterballs all weighed in between 9-10 pounds!!!
They have been eating well.
Hearts sounded great.
Fecal tests were clean.
They are ready to meet their new families!
Goodbyes start in exactly 7 days!
Instead of a few snapshots this week, we opted for a few short videos of the puppies in action! As you can see, they are all growing beautifully.
It rained ALL week last week and our yard was a small pond for most of the weekend! So, that slowed potty training down just a little. However, we are on top of it this week and they are doing pretty well with going when we take them outside... they definitely all enjoy the celebratory praise and attention they get when going!
We are looking forward to visiting Dr. Brent in a couple days at the vet!
Seven weeks also marks the beginning of crate training.
Goodbyes start in TEN days!
In case you're not sure...
Rooney has the red collar.
Yogi is yellow.
Poppy is pink.
Zero is orange!
We are starting week 6 with a bang, literally! Storms have been rolling in and we were in a rush to beat the rain. It started to sprinkle as soon as we started taking pictures and it was pouring by the time we finished.
We thought, "Lets throw them in the well, where it is dry and we can still get some cute pics of them outside!" Rooney played along, but the rest of the pups were quite confused! Ha! Ha!
Week 6 is a big one. We start working on the very basics of house training this week and Sadie continues to work on teaching them how to be good dogs and manners. Crate training will follow soon!
Rain really does make the best lullaby! These babies have been sleeping beautifully today.
It feels like I just posted the four week update yesterday and now it's already time for the FIVE week update!
These little butterballs love puppy food, trying to chase Mom, and napping.
On their four week birthday, we transitioned them from the puppy room to the living room. So, they are getting used to all the normal day to day noises (kids, TV, vaccuming, sinks, knocking at the door, ect.) and they are leaning to really love people!
They are especially fond of my 5 year old right now. Their little tails go crazy when he enters the puppy pen!
(If you missed the video I posted yesterday, check it out below! Look at those bellies barely off the ground. SO cute!
