Puppies are 4 weeks old!

Puppies are gaining about 1lb per week and growing fast! We moved them out to the barn in a 8x8 stall and they are so happy and playful! The puppies are not just walking but jumping, playing, running, barking and wagging their adorable little tails!!! 

We have begun introducing pups to other farm babies, chicks, ducks, goslings, bunnies kids, lambs and piglets. They are doing great and are going to be amazing dogs with children and other animals!

Mama is looking thin, but feeding 9 puppies at once will take a toll on any body. Vet says she is fine and will bounce back after weaning occurs. For now we are just maintaining her weight with free feed dry puppy kibble and 5lbs of homemade dog food every morning. We are also soaking lots of dry puppy kibble for pups to start nibbling on. 

Four week update:
Pink girl, weighs 4lb 14oz and is the boss of the group!

Purple girl weighs 4lb 6oz and is found relaxing most of the time.

Yellow girl weighs 3lb 12oz and is the first one to greet you!

Blue boy weighs 4lb 7oz and is just darling!

Dark green boy weighs 4lb 6oz and is so docile and relaxed!

White girl weighs 3lb 13oz and is just adorable!

Brown boy weighs 4lb 8oz and is super soft, fluffy and lazy!

Light green boy weighs 4lb 13oz and is the most playful!

Grey girl weighs 5lb 1oz and is still our biggest calm girl!

I keep thinking these puppies are the cutest ever then they get even cuter!!! Our family has been enjoying these babies so much but even more we have been enjoying our puppy families coming and lighting up as they snuggle their new soon-to-be addition! :)

*NOTE* All 9 puppies have families who have paid deposits. We get asked if they are available A TON! Before breeding occurred we had four interested families and by day 10 after breeding we had a list of 15 families on our waiting list. That list has changed over time but these puppies have been greatly wanted, dearly loved and spoken for before they were ever even born. We can add you to our current puppy list if interested for possible family changes, we can let you know when other farmer friends have a healthy litter of similar breed dogs or put you on our future puppy list although we are undecided as to if or when another litter may happen. It all depends on the health and well-being of mama and it certainly will not be her next heat cycle.

  1. These are the cutest, most adorable puppy liter that I've seen. All those charming faces really melt my heart and I'm so pleased that they all have a home that will welcome them. Our dear Momma Labrador just had her puppies and they are so precious - 7 cute babies and I'm giving them away to my siblings and 3 best buddies. The feeding schedule can be crazy but I'm glad that there are information available online that helped me a lot. One of which is this site: http://dogsaholic.com/puppies/puppy-feeding-schedule.html

  2. This will allow some contact between them but without complete freedom and therefore restricting possible harm. It is important that both puppy and older dog have attention, otherwise this can also affect how they feel about each other and their own wellbeing. dpg breeds

  3. The individual cremation is a source of much confusion for pet owners and often uninformed Pet Care Provider staff. Individual cremation simply means that the ashes that are returned to the pet owner are intended to be only the ashes of their beloved pet. here pets
