Jessie’s Litter DOB 19 February 2009
Jessie had 4 babies – all girls, and all pepper and salt coloured.
Jessie’s litter on the day of birth

This is Jessie’s first litter. She had a very quick and easy birth. In fact, she was so small, we weren’t even sure she was truly pregnant until about a week beforehand!

You can learn more about Jessie here.

The father of this litter is “Lex”, imported from the USA. You can learn more about him here.

These puppies will be ready to go home with their new owners on 17 April.

 

Mia’s Litter DOB 20 February 2009

 

One day after Jessie, after keeping us up with her noisy nest building for two nights in a row, Mia finally had her 7 puppies – 1 boy and 6 girls.

Mia’s puppies opened their eyes at 11 days of age. This little girl is yawning.

First eating lesson – pups at 3 1/2 weeks old.

Now they’re 4 1/2 weeks old:

The pups have graduated to a puppy playpen now. As you can see, they are becoming quite active!

But still need their naps…..

Now the pups are nearing 6 weeks old – almost time for their third wormer, and first vaccination.

They love to play and romp about, have needle-sharp teeth and are very nosy!

Now they’re old enough to come for walks with us and the older dogs. They just love to play and romp around our farm.

Gypsy’s Litter DOB 13 February 2010

Gypsy’s Litter DOB 13 February 2010

This is Gypsy’s litter and she had 7 babies – 3 girls and 4 boys; 5 black, 1 pepper and salt, and 1 black and silver.

In this video they are just 2 days old; all doing well and gaining weight. Tomorrow is dew-claw removal day (ouch!).
Their daddy is our gorgeous black boy “Jet”.

Here they are again at 11 days old:

 


Their eyes haven’t opened yet but will do so very soon. Notice how they use their sense of smell to find the “milk bar” when Gypsy goes in to feed them!

In this next video, they are 22 days old:

 

As you can see, quite a lot happens when the pups reach 3 weeks of age. They get their first experience of bathing and clipping (we trim their bottoms). They also are moved from the whelping box into their puppy pen.

At half the size of the others, the little salt and pepper puppy is the classic runt of the litter. At this stage she has a tough time competing with her littermates for a good spot at the milk bar but is strong and holding her own. In another week I will be introducing the puppies to solid food, and she will no longer have to compete for a good feed!

Here they are again, at 5 weeks of age:

 

The puppies were introduced to solid food a week ago, and we have started limiting their access to their mum to begin the gradual process of weaning. As you can see they have changed a lot in just a couple of weeks, becoming increasingly active and a lot more sociable – playing, barking and wagging their tails. As part of their very important socialization, they spend time every day interacting outside with their human and doggy families.
