Keeping Up Apperances Episode #5

Today we go to the vet and get shots and a full check-up!

The puppies are 6 weeks old today and they are having a great time. Sunday we went to Grandma's house for a visit. A 3 hour car ride and everyone the whole way. The puppies are enjoying playing outside and playing hide and seek in the house. This week we have several outings planned, so they will have more car experience and some leash training.

Here are the stars of the blog!

This is Hyacinth: she is a bundle of fun and loves to play.

Richard is our little explorer. He travels the farthest in the shortest amount of time.

This is Onslow. He loves to play and cuddle.

Mommy Rose.

Daddy Saul

Violet has already picked out a family and is excited to meet all her new brothers.

Emmet has also found a family, and can't wait to hear about Disney Land!

Keeping Up Apperances Episode #4

Rose's litter is 4 weeks old! This week they have started eating Pruina Pro Plan Puppy food that is moistened with water. They are much cleaner puppies now. They are enjoying exploring the house and playing with all of the adult dogs. However, warm dry weather would be nice so they could play a little outside.
This is Violet. She is the loudest puppy this week. She loves to bark and growl.

This is Richard. He loves to explore and travels the farthest in the shortest amount of time.

This is Onslow. Onslow loves to explore but doesn't travel too far with out company.

Our Hyacinth is a little charmer. Her black markings haven't come in quite yet, but she can charm everyone into a few kisses.

Emmet is just a little different, he has beige ears and beige spots.
If you are looking for a one of a kind puppy Emmet is you guy.
We took almost 50 pictures of the puppies

Hopefully the weather will be better this week and we will be able to take some pictures outside.
Please feel free to send us an email if you have any questions about the puppies.

Keeping up Appearances - Episode 3

The puppies had their first meal of gruel on Wednesday. They will spend all week learning how to eat out of a dish. For the first few days they spend most of their meal time stepping in the food dishes and then licking the food off of each other. But they are just so cute.

We have decided to set up a play pen for the little explorers. They have been getting lost behind chairs and crawling into other rooms. Keeps their mom very busy.

Minnie's Puppies all have homes

Angua went home today! She was very excited to be going home, however she was a little tired.
We took all the puppies to the park in Ames to play this afternoon. We visited 2 parks and walked on leashes. The puppies are doing very well on leashes, we were able to walk for 15 minutes at a time. OK, we mostly walked 1 or 2 puppies played and walked at the same time.

I hope to have pictures of Rose's puppies eating gruel up on Friday.
Ta Ta For Now

Monday, September 1, 2008

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Both Robert and Mortimer found homes today. Their new mommy lives in Rhode Island, and they are very excited to go on a plane trip to meet her on the 13th! Since Molly's mommy is picking her up shortly as well, this means that The only little pup left of Minnie's litter is Angua.

They had a very fun time at the petsmart today, and did well on the rather long drive it took to get there. Angua says Hi to everybody!


Playful Puppies

Saturday Willie went home to Red Oak, Iowa. He was very happy to hear he will be spending his winters in Texas.
We are working on potty training and leash training a lot now. But we still like to have fun chasing each other in the yard.

Angua is a quiet little girl. She loves to play but would prefer to cuddle.

Rob is always a gentlemen, and is looking very distinguished.
He loves to play and be the center of attention.

Mortimer loves to explore. He is also loves cuddles.

Friends at play.
Molly, Angua and Rob.
