Here we are again, all of the pups have been united with their forever families, and it's just the home team again.
I'm going to be honest with you, I think the humans of the house are quite a bit sadder than the sweet girl here who brought them into this world. Ha! Ha!
I can't say I blame her though. I imagine I will also be enjoying my new found freedom when my human babies make their way back to school this August.
Once again, thank you all for trusting us to help you grow your families.
It was an honor and we hope you'll stay in touch.
Sam, previously referred to as LJ, had another great week!
We introduced him to the leash this week and while he still doesn't love it, we are slowly learning to tolerate it. Ha! Ha! Practice makes perfect, am I right?
He is really getting the hang of barking when he needs to go potty, sleeps through the night, and always makes a happy plate.
We have so much love for this little guy. We can't wait for his family to meet him.
I MISSED PICTURE DAY!
I don't know if that has ever happened before. I was so wrapped in making sure everything was set for departures that I didn't realize what day it was.
A few pups are already running into their families arms and the rest will be doing so over the next few days.
It's been an amazing 8 weeks. This first litter will always hold an extra special place in our hearts.
(For now, I wanted to update the group blog really fast. I will update individuals later this afternoon!)
Sweet LJ is 9 weeks old today. He is sleeping through the night in his crate, doing very well on house training, and loves people and playing! Due to unforeseen circumstances (that were in no way his fault) LJ is once again looking for his forever family.
As you can see in the video, he is super sweet and loves to play. He never misses a meal, can chase a ball like it's his job (still working on returning the ball) and he is a big fan of cartoons and cuddling on the couch- especially in the mornings.
Another fun-filled week has passed and everyone is doing great. The weather was much nicer this week, so we tried really hard to get those good potty training habits started. They ALL love to be outside, but really prefer the mornings and evenings- the aren't too sure about that mid-day sun and they are all professionals at finding the shade. Ha! Ha!
Crating with a buddy has been a success. I don't want to jinx us, but so far, we haven't had a single accident! AMAZING!
Just like their mama, these puppies LOVE to play! Chase is their absolute favorite, and they'll play with anyone or anything... momma, kids, and toys.
Today, I kicked a soccer ball around the yard for them and they all thought that was BIG fun.
We are so excited for their families to meet them!
Wow! The last 8 weeks have flown by. Today we said goodbye to Aspen and Nuno and the remaining three will be following shortly behind in the days to come. Goodbyes are always bittersweet, but today's were a little extra hard. This is Livie's last litter. It's hard to imagine we'll never have anymore "mini Livie's" running through our home, cuddling on the couch, and lets be real... chasing after our toes while we run around the yard. Ha! Ha!
Livie introduced our family to a love we didn't even know was possible and it has been an honor to share a piece of her with families all around the United States.
To families who brought home (or are bringing home) puppies from this litter and those from litters past, thank you for trusting us to help grow your family. You all will forever hold a special piece of our hearts.
I got some fancy new clippers in this week and decided to try them out on Livie. I couldn't get the guards on correctly. So, I decided to just roll with the comb and clippers. I cut my son's hair this way all the time, and he looks great. Guards are really just for convenience, am I right??? NO, I am wrong.
Thank goodness she is a forgiving soul and hair grows fast. Ha! Ha!
Six weeks is a BIG one for puppies.
This week, we'll start house training, crate training, and hopefully playing outside a whole lot more... weather cooperating! (We got a LOT of rain this week.)
The puppies are all doing great.
They love to play and EAT... the puppy pen can get pretty rowdy at times.
And let me tell you, every meal is gobbled up like it could be their last. Ha! Ha!
They are such a fun bunch.
We are really enjoying our time with them and can't for their families to meet them.
If you're following the blog, you probably saw that I offered videos of the PWD puppies.
I'd love to send you a video of your pup as well, just send me a text if you'd like to see your baby in action. :)
WOW! Let me tell you guys, photographing 7 week old puppies who are getting limited time outside due to insane amounts of rain this week is a little (LOT) chaotic. If pictures are blurry, it's because these babies were EXCITED and on the move! Ha! Ha!
I cannot believe they will all start going home next week. The time has flown by.
We started crate training with a buddy last week and that was a breeze! Everyone did fantastic from night one. This week we will transition them into solo crates. Fingers crossed for a smooth transition.
We are working on house training. I will be honest, the rain is making that a little more challenging than usual. It can be really hard to remember to take care of business when there is water falling from the sky and so many puddles to play in. Ha! Ha! I believe this week is supposed to be dryer, so we'll double down on the house training this week.
If anyone would like a video of their baby, send me a text! Pictures just don't do them justice at this stage. They are adorable and we'd love to show them off!
These little balls of fluff had a fantastic week!
They transitioned to hard puppy food, got to explore the backyard with their momma, and really started becoming interested in the people of the house.
The puppy pen is getting real loud at times, as they learn to play and interact with each other. Each week gets more exciting!
We are having so much fun with all of them.
