Six weeks is a big week around here! We are starting to work on house training and in a few short days we will begin crate training.
All of the pups are doing great! They love adventures outside, but are still getting used to a world without air conditioning. It doesn't take them long to find the shady spots in the yard.
As you may of noticed, individual blogs have not been updated today. I created individual videos, but I am having difficulty getting them to load onto the website. I will keep working on it and hopefully they'll be up soon! If I can't get them to post, we'll take pictures tomorrow or Saturday! Thanks for your patience!
We are turning a corner when it comes to weekly photoshoots! These puppies are all officially active, little explorers with minds of their own... sitting still AND looking at the camera for a picture is rarely on their agenda.
We started puppy food this week and all 8 pups approved! They are also big fans of toys, human attention, and going outside.
Little personalities are starting to shine and it's so fun seeing how different they all react to new experiences.
Four weeks is such a fun time!
Little personalities are starting to emerge, they are becoming interested in toys and people, and learning how to play. However, they still spend majority of their day snuggled up and snoozing!
Look at all those wagging tails!
Four Weeks Old!
The puppies got their first taste of real sunshine and fresh air today... I have a feeling it would have been a much more magical experience if they weren't also introduced to our Oklahoma wind! Ha! Ha! They were not too sure about that fresh air blowing right in their faces.
The litter is really starting to play and interact with each other! It's so fun to watch. Hoping to catch it on video so I can share it soon!
It's been a fun week as we watch the babies get stronger and more mobile each day...
their slow scoot is slowly transforming into a full blown crawl.
They are also starting to play and interact with each other... as you can see by the wet muzzles a few pups have- thanks to siblings trying to gnaw on them! Ha! Ha!
Each week gets a bit more exciting around here! We can't wait for them to be start wanting to play us!!
Look at those pretty blue eyes, open just in time for two week pictures!
Everyone looks so grown up with their eyes open and collars on.
Life is still pretty quiet in the whelping box.
Lots and lots of sleeping and when they aren't asleep they are eating.
Our family was shocked when comparing this weeks pictures to last weeks pictures...
It is clear no puppy is going hungry on Sadie's watch!
One week old, already!!
All eight are doing fantastic.
Sadie has been a very loving, attentive mother. She never gives them a chance to so much whimper a need. She is always in or near the whelping box, making sure everyone is well fed, cuddled, and clean.
Thomas (my four year old) has already mentioned several times that "it feels like Sadie doesn't live with us anymore because she is always with her babies" now. Ha! Ha! Good thing time is going by fast, because our Sadie girl is definitely missed by the humans in the house!
This week, we are looking forward to eyes and ears opening up!
On the last night of March, Miss Sadie Jade welcomed 8 beautiful babies into the world! It was a record fast labor and Sadie is recovering beautifully. Momma is doing fantastic and all eight babies are thriving!
April is getting close!!
We should be meeting those sweet babies within the next two weeks!
Sadie is doing great. She's staying active, eating great, growing beautifully and enjoying the warmer temps we have been having!
