How old now??

Wow has time flown by!
Having full-time jobs, house renovations, AND active mischievous puppies leaves us barely any time to sleep!
We managed to catch a break between everything, so here's some pictures from the past few weeks that we've missed!



These little puppers are all going home beginning this Saturday, March 10th! they all have found excellent families, and we'll be sad to see them go!
We don't plan to have another litter until next spring, but we already have quite the waiting list! If you're interested in one of our puppies, send us an email and we can add you to the list!

Thanks so much for reading, and have a great year everyone!

2 weeks and looking good!

Hi all! It's been quite busy around here! Loretta's new position has her hands quite full going this way and that, and the puppies take up almost all the rest of her time. It's a miracle she finds time to sleep!

All of the little puppers have officially been reserved, as of shortly after last week's blog post. If you're looking for a little white puffball of your own, we don't have any available from this litter, but we do have a waitlist of people to contact when the next litter happens. If you'd like to be contacted about the next litter when it happens (probably next spring), let us know and we'll add you to the list!

One of the many exciting activities that happened this week was the puppies' first bath. They were spunky little rascals and took quite an offense to it! After a good towel dry and a tiny bit of blowdrying they weren't the happiest of campers, but they cooperated well enough for pictures anyway~
They're still very young, and their eyes juust opened, so they don't lift their heads up too much and they're not moving a whole lot just yet. But that doesn't mean they get a break from the paparazzi!


Jay is the smaller boy, and he wears black. He started the smallest, but has caught up and is now a little bigger than his smaller sister!

Cardinal is the larger boy, and he wears the red collar. He has the strongest markings of the litter by just a bit.

Sparrow is the smallest, and she wears pink! Her markings haven't come in hardly at all yet, but she's still just about as much of a tiny troublemaker!

 Robin wears the light blue/cyan collar. (robin's-egg blue!). Robin started with the strongest markings of the bunch, but has lagged behind her bigger brother. She's also the oldest by about an hour!

Dove is the middle girl, and she wears purple. She was very tired after her bath and didn't want any part in pictures, but we got em anyway. 
 
As always, more pictures can be found in our google album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/N2uqzezHfiRUHuAm2
 The soda can is for scale, and the stuffed animals are from Daddy Rampage's latest barkbox! He really loves those barkbox toys!

We'll be having open house for the families who reserved these little puppers in a little less than 2 weeks, on the weekends of the 17th and the 24th! 
 
Hope everyone has a good week!

1 week old!

The little puppers are 1 week old, so here are some more pictures~



We took a few pictures on Friday, here's the little girls:


And here's the little boys:

And a few group shots:


Then, we took some more pictures Monday, on their 1-week birthday.

The girls are doing quite well, growing like weeds! Their markings are coming in already, and are quite strong in the one little girl.

The little boys are growing quite big, and starting to get their markings too:

And all of them together again:

You might be able to tell that one of the boys is much smaller than the other! There typically is one that is the smallest during the first few weeks. We always pay special attention to the smallest to make sure they're getting everything they need, and make sure they're growing and keeping pace. Typically they catch up at some point and the difference is still noticeable, but not quite as major as you can see here.
This little guy seems to be doing quite well! Even though he's very little, he's growing quite well and meeting his weight milestones, and is just as active and wiggly as the rest of the little worms.


We hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

New batch of little ones~

Hello, everyone! It's been quite busy in our happy little family lately!
After the Little Ls, we weren't originally planning on having another litter for a while. Puppies are fun and adorable, but they're also a lot of work, and it can sometimes be quite nerve-wracking!
But when it came time to make that decision, we had so many requests in our inbox asking when the next litter would be, we eventually caved and prepared for a new crop of tiny pitter-pattering feet.

During the holidays, Nova got a Pink Koolaid wash! - From left to right: Rampage, Saul, Nova.

During her pregnancy, we made sure she got all her special treats and vitamins. Then, on January 15th, everyone was ready for the big day.
Nova gets very needy when the time comes, so we had to sit with her and make sure she was comfortable. She started her contractions fairly early around 2:30 pm, and then around 6pm, the first little one had finally arrived!


We were all very excited, but we're also very practiced at this, so we knew to get her quickly dried off and returned to momma (after a momentary stop for pictures) After that, the rest came with relative ease, and soon the whole ordeal was over! After a few more pictures, we left Nova to have her much-deserved rest, with her 3 new baby girls, and 2 new baby boys! 


It's been a few days since then, and the puppies are all healthy and growing nicely. We'll have more updates and pictures next week!

In the meantime, All three girls have now definitely been spoken for, but at least one of the boys is still available. (As of this writing - 8:30pm Jan 19th)
If you're interested in learning more about these puppies, send us an email, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can!

Nova's Little L's are staying cool

Happy Sunday!
The puppies are super happy that today will be cooler and we can spend more time outdoors.
As of Sunday July 23rd we have 1 princess that is available to go home August 11th.

 
 Lily is our smallest puppy, she loves to explore and try to get Grandpa Saul to play.

Lacy is is the largest female puppy in the litter.  Lacy also loves to explore and Cuddle.
 
Lucy is also a smaller puppy.  Lacy is a little bit shy, but she loves to cuddle.
Lacy also had fun trying to get G-pa Saul to play this morning.

 
Lena is the second largest girl in the litter. 
Lena is our talker.  She is too funny.

 
Lola is one of the 3 smaller puppies in this litter.
Lola is our princess charmer, she loves to explore and follow mom all over the house.
 
 

This is our Prince Lloyd.
Lloyd is a charmer.

It was so hot outside that we took pictures in the house.  And waited until later to go outside to play.
Ice cubes are fatastic chew treats for teathing puppies and helps to cool them down.  Another trick that I like is to put a damp towel in the freezer and lay that out for the pups to lay on when the temperatures get so warm outside.



Rampage loves the Mushroom toy that came in the BarkBox this month.
Rampage and Nova love getting their Bark Box every month.  Nova loves the treats and Rampage love the toys.  The link above will give a new subscription a free box and send a free box to Nova and Rampage.
 
The puppies have been enjoying playing outside several times each day.  They are finally to the really fun stage.  They now love to play with toys, and nibble toes.

Friday the 28th the puppies will visit the vet for their first set of shots and a health check.

We will also be visiting with families next weekend and will know which puppies are going to Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa.

Thank you for visiting our blog.
Remember to stay cool and hydrated.
Don't forget to hug your favorite friend.

Growing Like Weeds!


 We have 1 little female puppy still looking for her forever home! 
It is so hard to believe the puppies are already 4 weeks old. 
This weekend they had their first car ride!

This is Lloyd, he is our only little guy and he is as cute as a button!

 Lacy likes to explore and give lots of kisses.

 Lena was our photo hound this week.
 Lucy was pretty quiet this week. But she might just be saving up....
 Our smallest puppy is Lily.
Lola likes to take a minute to assess the situation before she dives in. 
 I like to call this personality our old souls or thinkers.

Our photo album has 4 videos as well as about 130 pictures of the puppies.

The puppies are already eating puppy kibble, 2 times every day we give them puppy kibble soaked in water as well, however this litter likes to munch on hard kibble.  We are currently feeding them a blend of puppy foods that we like.  Purina Pro Plan Naturals , Taste of the Wild and Exceed Puppy.  The puppies really enjoy the Taste of the wild which has a very small kibble size.

Rampage has asked me to also let everyone know that this month the Bark Box is Alice and Wonderland Themed and he thinks the Mushroom toy is FANTASTIC.  If you are thinking about getting a bark box this code will send a free box to Rampage and Nova, as well as adding a free box to your subscription.


Nova, Rampage, Saul and I hope everyone has a safe week!

Nova and Rampage had puppies Father's Day!

 Nova and Rampage had 6 little puppies on June 18th 2017!  
In this litter Nova has 1 precious little guy and 5 adorable little girls.

 The puppies have almost doubled in size this week, and have been enjoying lots of cuddle time with mom.
 The smallest little puppy a girl is now 8.4 ounces and the 3 puppies tied for largest at 13.4 ounces each.
3 females from this litter are still available as of June 25th, they will be ready to go home starting August 11th, 2017.
New Pictures can be found using this link.    

Our little man has found a home and his name is going to be Lloyd, as we always give the puppies a themed nickname until they have their forever names we decided that we would give the little girls all nicknames that all start with the letter L.  The list that we pulled this morning is, Lucy, Lacy, Lily, Lola, and Lena.  Next week we will try collars on and give each little girl their nickname and assign a colored boarder to all of their pictures to help identify the puppies at a distance.

If you are interested on one of our puppies please send us an email at
honeyridgepuppies@gmail.com or 
Lorettaspins@gmail.com
  
I hope everyone has a fantastic week.
Loretta and Nova
