Puppy Fun

Bizzie's pups are almost 5 wks old now! I can't believe how fast the time went.
One week makes a huge difference.... they are running around & love to go backwards, which is really funny. They play fight & can make quite the noises.
Their ears are coming up now & they can eat from a bowl. They love to play in the water dish.
They are so cute I could sit & watch them all day!
Here are some head shots from this morning...

First is Sable Boy (Sting), then Sable Girl, then B & W Girl

B & W Girl - her ears are up now! She looks most like her momma

Puppy Love

This is the sable boy - I think he'll be very handsome!

This is a black & white girl - looks a lot like her momma!

Bizzie's puppies are just over 3 wks old now. This is the fun time when they start to be little dogs. They can now motor around pretty well & have started to play a bit with each other - kinda starts out by accident, so it's funny to watch. Next week I will move them into a bigger pen in the kitchen so they can get used to more activity & the other dogs running around & playing.
It will be interesting to see how Critter reacts - she had puppies last year & she's quite sure Bizzie needs her help right now. Bizzie doesn't really see it that way!

I'm anxious for Bizzie to get back into shape so that we can start training again. I would like to run her at regionals this June if she is ready, but if it's too much for her, we'll work up to it more slowly. I am taking her to a chiropractor in a couple of wks, so hopefully we'll see how she is. It took a very long time for her to recover mentally & physically from her last litter, so I hope I can have a better plan this time to get her back to having a fun time at agility.

Apart from agility, I've been working on more tricks with Blast. He loves to learn & at some point I'd like to do some freestyle with him. Right now we're working on weaving backwards through my legs. I need some ideas for some more cool tricks, so if you have any ideas, please let me know!

Puppy Update

Well, Bizzie's puppies are now 2 wks old. All doing well!
This is the sable boy. He's really adorable.

This is the sable girl. I haven't quite figured out who the noisy one is, but my money's on her!

Here are the black & white girls! I still have a soft spot for the black & whites!

The other dogs are quite jealous of all the attention that Bizzie & her pups get. Critter is very interested & is always trying to sneak in to see the pups. I'm sure she remembers her pups & is always watching Bizzie closely! The puppies are now starting to use their legs & climb out of their bed to find momma! One of them gets quite snarky when another puppy tries to move her from the milk bar! They are just now starting to get a personality - the next week will bring lots of changes!

Puppy Update

Puppies are now 8 days old, and about 12 oz. Bizzie is being a very good mom. It's so surprising to me how active these little guys are when they don't even have their eyes open yet! They are very vocal (hope that's not a prediction of the future!) They have lots of color, which I like. I haven't come up with any clever names for them yet, but think I may call one of them Dora the Explorer - she's always climbing out of the little donut bed & wandering around the crate screaming for her mommy!
