Time Flies

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

Well, the puppies are almost 7 weeks old now . . . it's been FAR too long without a blog post, but life has gotten in the way just a wee bit. The puppies take a LOT more time now, plus I brought home my kitten a week and a bit ago, so that has added to my load.

Without further ado . . .

This is LB, my 5 month old Persian Himalayan

The wonderful Farley, AKA World's Cutest Dog. He's now 15 years old and still ticking.

    You have your hands full for sure! I love puppies at this age. Opie's still my favorite though! lol! You have such great dogs, I love how patient Kermit is with all the youngsters. And that's quite the pretty little princess kitty too. She has that "I'm the kitty of this household" look down already.
Thanks for more great pictures!

Four Weeks Old!

Thursday, September 18, 2014

It's really hard for me to believe that the puppies are already four weeks old. It seems like just yesterday I was waiting impatiently for them to arrive. Not only can they see and hear, but they're up on their feet and barking and growling like mad. They're just so stinking cute now . . . and they love their Uncle Kermit, who returns the sentiment in spades.

Happy 3 Week Birthday Puppies!

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Yesterday was the puppies' three week birthday. They celebrated by getting haircuts (not really THEIR idea of a good time, but they need to learn to accept the clippers) and playing a bit with the adult dogs. Boy 4 is definitely the most interactive - he is interested in dealing with the adult dogs, while the other two boys mostly just want to sleep. They'll come around, though, I'm sure of it. Now it's getting to the fun stage - they're much more fun when they bark and trill and move around.

Puppies - 18 Days

Monday, September 08, 2014

I've been remiss with posting puppy pictures. I take pictures daily, but don't always think to upload them to SparkPeople. The puppies are 18 days old now, with open eyes, open ears and just starting to get up on their feet. They are way too cute for words, and I spend an awful lot of time watching them and cuddling them. I have dubbed them the Three Amigos for now.


Kermit keeping a close eye on the boys. He LOVES the babies and is eager for them to be big enough to play with

Farley is less interested in the puppies, but they are interested in him

Brotherly love

This is Boy #4, currently the biggest of the three, although they're all fairly close in size and weight. He's the one that loves to cuddle, and he was also the first one to try walking.

The Puppies Are Here!

Monday, August 25, 2014

Well, now that I've recovered a bit, it's time to share my news.

On Wednesday August 20th, four beautiful puppies made their way into this world. Sophia (my girl that I own with a friend) did all of the work herself, just the way nature intended, and she was a real trooper.

Unfortunately on Saturday, one of the boys died. This can happen with newborn puppies - they're so vulnerable until they're about two weeks old. I was very sad, but now I need to focus on the three remaining boys.

The Three Amigos

Boy #1

Boy #3

Boy #4

Jack Jack meeting Boy #4 and being so very gentle about it

Their eyes should open anywhere between 10-14 days of age, and their ears open at the same time. Around 3 weeks they should be standing up and wobbling around.

Thank you for sharing my joy!
