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.

video
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

Nova's Puppies 12/26

Nova's Puppies' 12/16 pics

The puppies are growing quite quickly now! it seems like only a few days ago they were just taking their first few wobbly steps, and now they're running all over the house to and fro. They're definitely developing some personality now - some of them are more playful, some are more laid-back. 
These pictures were taken on the 16th, but there was a family event on the 17th in which the camera got sent home to the wrong house with all the pictures on it, and it just got sent back to the right place, so this blog post is a lot later in the week than I'd like! 

A pile of puppies hanging out in little sweaters I made for them - it was cold in the house and they needed some extra warmth.

Some puppies getting powdered kibble - they really took to the powdered kibble quite quickly! 

Horsea - the second-smallest boy. Horsea is the quietest of the group. I often see him playing out and about and roughhousing, but he never complains about anything. Even tumbles that cause other puppies to run to mommy don't seem to faze him - he just keeps on trucking. 

Ghastly - the middle boy. Ghastly is also a quiet one, but more reserved. His favorite activity is napping and cuddling, rather than going out and getting in trouble. The puppys' favorite napping spot is near our feet, and that's the first place Ghastly will go in the morning.  

Ditto - one of the two largest boys. Ditto is always looking for human attention. Whether it be cuddles, playing, or comfort after a tumble, he wants us to know what he's doing and that we should do it too. Ditto also has the best markings out of the group - his blacking was all in before he opened his eyes, and he even has some black markings on the underside of his ear and inside his mouth. 

Raichu - the other largest boy. Raichu is a middle-of-the-road sort of puppy. He likes to play sometimes, but other times he'd rather nap. Sometimes he wants to play with the other puppies, sometimes he'd rather have human attention. Somewhat vocal, but not the loudest. 

Pidgey - the smallest boy. Pidgey is a very adventurous little baby. He loves to get in trouble, and loves to investigate new things. He also loves human attention and cuddles - and he usually gets them, because he's so dang adorable. Being smallest also gives him a more terrier-like face, rather than the hound-like face the bigger puppies have. 

Jynx - Biggest girl. Jynx is about as big as Ditto and Raichu are - maybe a little bit smaller. Jynx is very laid back. She's one of the puppies who would much rather be napping and cuddling than getting up and running about. She's quite quiet as well. 


Eevee - Smallest Girl. Eevee is the very smallest out of all the puppies. As the very smallest, she gets a little bit of special attention from us. She's definitely adventurous and playful, and somehow has the most energy out of all the puppies. Somewhat vocal, but not as much as Raichu and Ditto. She's a positive little angel, and picks herself right back up after any setback. 


Last weekend's open houses ended up not going through due to the weather, but we still brought Rampage over to meet the puppies and we opened our second BarkBox and had everyone play with the included stuff. The dogs were particular fans of the hot cocoa mug, because it made a wonderfully great forage toy (the sort of toy you hide treats or food in and they have to figure out how to get the treats out) 


The puppies go to their first vet visit tomorrow, the 22nd. They'll get their first puppy shots and a general look-over. Then with a clean bill of health in hand they'll come back home and get a nice bath before meeting the first forever family on Friday~

Thanks for reading, and as always, feel free to peruse the rest of the pictures on our Google+ Album, and ask us any questions you might have,

Nova's puppies 12/10/16 - First Bath!

The puppies have been starting to get puppy mush this past week, which means they also get to start having their weekly baths. 
The mush is just a mixture of powdered milk replacer, and the kibble that Nova is eating, also ground up into a powder. then I add water to the powders, and the puppies love it! of course, being puppies, they aren't very dainty eaters, and get the food as much on themselves as in themselves!
So yesterday was first bath day, so they could get clean again for pictures, and to get them used to baths from a young age. 
Each puppy got a hands-on soaping up and rinsing in the warm water by Loretta, then a towel-dry and a blow-dry by Kim. After they were dry and fluffied up, they got trims of their little toenails, and trims of the fur around certain particularly dirty areas. (The potty zones, and the bottoms of their pads) Then, pictures!

Pidgey

Raichu

Ghastly

Horsea

Jynx

The puppies are getting more energetic and playful every day! Check out this month's G+ album for extra pictures, and the occasional video of playful puppies~ (The album is in chronological order so scroll down for the most recent pictures)

~ALSO A REMINDER~
Open houses start this coming weekend, starting Friday, 12/16. For those of you taking these adorable blobs of fluff home in January, If you haven't let us know a day and/or time you'd like to visit, let us know, so you can meet the beautiful babies and get the address of the open house. We're open (by appointment) each weekend, Friday and Saturday, excepting the Saturday of the 17th, until all the puppies have gone home in mid-January.


With all that said, it's started to snow outside, so we wish you all a safe and happy weekend!

Nova's puppies get their microchips, and all are sold!

Yesterday was the day that the puppies got their microchips and their first puppy mush!
In addition, The last puppy has been spoken for. We're not sure if there will be another litter, but we can take your name for a waiting list and if enough folks are interested we might be convinced to have another litter next year sometime.
We changed our microchip provider this time, as we found a service which has much smaller chips, and we can pay their registration ahead of time, so all their new parents will have to do is set them up with their address and phone number. 
We also got a microchip for the one of my ferrets that didn't already have one, both because he needed one and because it would let us test out the service. 


The paperwork that comes in the packet - after Nokk got his chip we put the sticker with his number on this ID card and put his name on the card, then we registered online. The registration is lifetime, and comes with a small video library on basic dog training. You can also register by phone if you prefer that too. 

After the puppies had recovered a little from their microchip ordeal, We dragged them back out for a quick set of pictures. They were quite tired and grumpy, but still alert enough to show off their fresh, bright eyes  

Pidgey, smallest boy

Horsea, second smallest boy

Ghastly, Middle-sized boy

Ditto, Second largest boy

Raichu, Largest boy

Eevee, Smallest Girl

Jynx, Biggest Girl.

Now that their eyes are open, the puppies are much more active and exciting. This week our most laid-back puppy was Jynx, with Pidgey coming in a close second. They're just starting to take their first few steps, so soon they'll be exploring their little pen and making all sorts of trouble!
and of course they'll be getting their first puppy mush this week, and that will be a real mess!

The extra photos from this week can be found on our G+ album
And of course, if you have any questions, please let us know, and we'll be happy to answer them!~
