Fawke's Puppies are 3 weeks old!

Dinner with mom. This is mama Fawkes feeding her pups.

The puppies are now starting to eat puppy Gruel. Puppy gruel is made by soaking Purina Pro Plan Puppy food in Puppy milk and then blending the soaked food to make a gruel. Right now they tend to make a big mess walking through the food more then they eat it. The puppies do however enjoy licking the gruel off of each other!

This is our little Peppermint Candy.

This is Snow Drop looking for a tasty treat.

Holly is still the biggest puppy of the litter

This is Crystal, she is a card.

This is our cute little Frosty.

This is Ivanna she was known as Tinkerbell.
Ivanna was very excited to hear she will be going home with a wonderful family in Massachusetts this December.
This past week the puppies have been learning to crawl around and explore their surroundings. The puppies are still a little wobbly as they crawl about, and very cute too. The puppies are messy in all of the photos because they are having the opportunity to eat gruel 3 times a day. I took all of the pictures just after they had finished eating and cleaning each other off a bit,
so that everyone could enjoy the mess.
I also wanted to apologize for being late this week, I really wanted to get some natural light for the photos, mother nature had other ideas.
Please enjoy all the pictures in our Picasa Album
The puppies are looking forward to their fist spa day next week. Probably on Tuesday or Wednesday depending on when we have sun. The puppies will have their first real bath, and get their new collars.
Please feel free to email or call with any questions.

Fawkes Puppies are 2 weeks old!

The girls are growing like weeds and starting to get into trouble already!

This is the biggest puppy she is already 25 ounces! She has been getting teased, the boys in the house have been calling her big Birtha so we have given her the nickname Holly.
Holly is already starting to explore and she can't even see yet!

This is Snow Drop, formerly Puppy #3. Snow Drop is a pretty little girl, she is 18 ounces today.

This is Peppermint Candy, formerly puppy #5.
Peppermint still has her eyes closed, she is17 ounces.

This little cutie is Crystal formerly puppy #4. Crystal is 17.5 ounces today.

This little charmer is Frosty, formerly puppy #2. Frosty is 19 ounces today. Frosty's eyes are just starting to open.

This is Tiny Tinkerbell, she prefers Tink. Tink was the first puppy to open her eyes by a day or so. Tink is always on the move and is happy to report that she is a whopping 11 ounces big.
Yes, she is tiny but she is strong and very persistent. Tink is still being supplemented, but she is starting to let me know how much she dislikes it. I swear she is saying, "I am a big girl! I don't want to be the baby!"

In the next few days the puppies will be starting to hear sounds. Part of our puppy training is to have them listen to lots of different sounds, we use recordings of babies crying, gun shots, and other sounds that we don't have around the house. Of course the puppies get to hear all the normal house sounds like the vacuum, TV, and radio.
The biggest change for the puppies this week will be a move from their box to a playpen. Holly has decided that she wants to go exploring and we don't want her to wander too far from Mom.
To the Photo Album, this week I snapped 45 pictures.
Please feel free to email with Questions.

The New Arrivals

Wednesday October 7th and into the Early hours of October 8th Fawkes had 6 little girls!
Fawkes is doing great and is really enjoying being a mom.

The puppies are now a week old and starting to get some of their coloring.
This is the biggest puppy she weighs a whopping 510 grams!

This is little girl #2 she is 370 grams. You can see she is getting a lot of her nose color already.

This is little girl #3 she is 333 grams

This is little girl #4 she is 340 grams.

This is little Girl #5 she is 335 Grams.

This is Tiny. Tiny is 209 grams and growing. I am supplementing Tiny with a product called DYNE, it is a high calorie liquid supplement. Tiny is doing great on her own, I just want give her an extra boost.
In a few of the pictures you can see where the puppies dew claws were removed. They are healing nicely and I am applying a little triple antibiotic once a day to help the healing along.
I have lots of pictures in our picasa album from The Girls Birthday and First Week.

I think we will be nicknaming the girls after the holiday season next week, that way they don't feel like a number. Right now it is really hard to tell them apart, aside from Tiny and the biggest puppy. This week we are still working on phase one of super puppy training.

Super Puppy Training involves holding the puppies in different positions for 3-5 seconds each, they also get a foot massage everyday and tactile stimulation. The whole routine takes about a minute and then back to mom.

Right now we still have 5 puppies available if you are interested please send us an email.
